  • See the Amazing Results of BLU-U Light Therapy

    Sun spots and adult acne are some of the leading skin problems among men and women, but they are not imperfections that you have to live with. Photodynamic therapies like BLU-U Light treatment can erase sun damage and stop breakouts to keep your skin looking youthful and smooth.

    In this video, you can watch a photodynamic therapy session in action and see the amazing results that come painlessly from this treatment. Light penetrates the skin to stop oil production or target damaged cells so that healthy skin cells form and revive your facial appearance. The skin is not irritated following treatment, but sun exposure should be strictly avoided for 48 hours.

    If you think that BLU-U Light Therapy is the right solution for your skin, consult Swinyer – Woseth Dermatology in Salt Lake City. We offer complete cosmetic and clinical skincare to help you look your best at any age. To schedule your first appointment with us, call (801) 266-8841.

  • Discover the Benefits of Xeomin

Cosmetic injectables are an effective alternative to surgery that improve the appearance of your skin and create a more youthful-looking façade. Xeomin is a type of cosmetic injectable best suited for reducing the deep wrinkles of the upper face.

    A Refreshed Upper Face

    Xeomin is used to reduce moderate to severe lines in the upper face. It is best suited for addressing furrows on the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows (also called glabellar lines), and “crow’s feet” wrinkles that appear around the outer edges of the eyes. Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, the same active ingredient as Botox and Dysport. This toxin paralyzes the muscles beneath the skin, preventing them from moving too much and creating deep wrinkles in the skin.

    Prevention of Wrinkles

    Studies have shown that botulinum toxin injections can be used as a preventive measure to maintain smooth skin. Wrinkles form as the collagen beneath the skin creases and breaks with repeated movements, such as frowning or squinting. Rather than treating existing wrinkles, Xeomin can be used to keep those wrinkles from forming by preventing excess movement when making facial expressions.

    Short Treatment Time, Minimal Side Effects, and Fast Results

    Treatment with Xeomin takes approximately 10-20 minutes. No anesthetic is necessary, though your dermatologist may use a numbing cream or cold pack to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Side effects are minimal and may include slight bruising or swelling of the injected areas. You can see results as soon as three to four days after treatment, and your results may continue to improve for up to 30 days.
