When you are in your twenties until about early thirties, you hardly notice signs of aging. However, when you hit your late thirties, boom! You suddenly notice that you look old, worn out and haggard—suddenly fine lines, wrinkles and crows feet seem to appear left and right on your face. And if you can only turn back time, I’m sure you wish you slathered on those anti-aging products, slept earlier or skipped that martini that gave you that hang over. Let’s face it, life is stressful and whether you like it or not, age will catch up with you. Sure anti-aging products are a big help, and are there to prevent and help your skin but what if you feel like you need something that gives instant and obvious results. It’s no secret that injectables are a popular choice when it comes to an instant anti-aging fix. The most famous one, Botulinum, is a substance used to temporarily block nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. When it is injected to your face, it weakens facial muscles and as a result smoothens out wrinkles.
A new offering in the market boasts of effective and quick results. We found out about this new product during its launch at the Aivee Clinic over lunch. Dubbed as Xeomin, this substance is an FDA-approved purified aesthetic injectable. It is injected into facial muscle, temporarily improves moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, particularly those on the forehead, the area between the brows, and at the outer corners of your eyes. According to the Aivee Clinic, what’s unique about Xeomin is that it doesn’t have the complex proteins that other products in the market have that unfortunately, causes resistance to the skin. The substance is also isn’t as heavy as the others, making the procedure painless. In fact one doesn’t have to use emla cream and just opt for ice to numb the skin. It is also a quick procedure, and you can go about your business as usual right after.

The Aivee clinic further explained, “Thanks to its concentration, Xeomin’s results are visible by the second day post-treatment and last between three to four months. There is less chance that you will be immune to it and it can continue to help you look as young as you feel with the treatment. If you’re looking for a way to restore your youthful looks, this is the procedure for you.”
