When it comes to restoring a more youthful look, wrinkle reduction is a popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. To help you get amazing results without the unnecessary proteins, board-certified general surgeon Danny Harrison, MD, at Sky Vein & Aesthetics uses Xeomin and PDO threads to help you look your very best.

Facial expressions are one of the contributing factors to the formation of lines and wrinkles. As you get older and your skin loses its elasticity, your repeated facial expressions create lasting creases and lines in your skin.
Wrinkle reduction can help reduce the signs of aging and fine lines on your face. At Sky Vein & Aesthetics, Dr. Harrison uses Xeomin and PDO threads to boost collagen production and help restore a youthful look.
Xeomin is a unique form of botulinum toxin therapy. It’s the only clinically proven anti-wrinkle injection with an active ingredient of botulinum toxin type A that’s purified to remove proteins unnecessary for treatment.
It’s specifically used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dr. Harrison is an experienced aesthetic expert and creates personalized treatment plans to ensure you get the best results. He reviews your treatment plan at your consultation so you know what to expect.
In general, Dr. Harrison only needs 10-20 minutes to carefully make injections into precise areas of your skin to get the desired results. Though you may experience some redness at the site of the injection, you can cover the marks with makeup.
There’s no downtime following Xeomin treatments, but Dr. Harrison recommends you delay any strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
You should start to notice an improvement in your look within 3-4 days, but the full effects can take up to two weeks. Dr. Harrison may pair your Xeomin injections with dermal fillers, such as Radiesse®, for a more dramatic facial rejuvenation.
Xeomin injections at Sky Vein & Aesthetics only temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Your treatment should keep your skin smooth and youthful for 3-4 months.
Once you start to notice the effects of your Xeomin wearing off, Dr. Harrison recommends you schedule your next session. Repeated Xeomin injections not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles but may prevent new wrinkles from forming.
PDO smooth threads can be used to improve crepey skin, acne, or other scars. They are used to outline the lips for a natural look, smooth the neck, and can be inserted into deep and fine lines, smoker’s lines, “elevens,” and forehead lines.
PDO smooth threads are preloaded in small hypodermic needles that are placed just under the skin. They are a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone.
PDO sutures are used to perform wound closures in surgery, and Dr. Harrison has used them for over 30 years. It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body and your skin fully absorbs it within 4-6 months. PDO threads stimulate collagen production to prolong their filling effect.
