What is Xeomin?

Dynamic wrinkles form due to repetitive contractions that happen in the tiny facial muscles when we squint, frown, smile, or laugh. These dynamic lines are difficult to smooth using over-the-counter skin care products, but with Xeomin injections, they quickly fade into obscurity. Xeomin helps to improve facial expressions so that you appear relaxed, happy, and youthful.

Xeomin is made with botulinum toxin A, the same ingredient as is found in BOTOX. It works to temporarily block the nerve impulses that trigger facial contractions leading to lines and wrinkles. The result is smoother skin, free from entrenched creases. A typical treatment consists of 6-25 injections strategically placed in areas that need to be refreshed and rejuvenated.

What aesthetic concerns can Xeomin address?

  • Forehead creases and furrows
  • Glabellar lines (“11” lines)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Lip lines
  • Vertical neck banding
  • Enlarged jaw muscles

What are the benefits of Xeomin?

  • Safe, non-surgical, and FDA-approved
  • An excellent alternative to BOTOX
  • Help reduce dynamic wrinkles and lines
  • Painless, with no downtime
  • Enhances youthfulness and vitality
  • Combats the signs of aging
  • Enhances satisfaction with one’s appearance 

Who is a good candidate?

Patients over 18 who are anxious about frown lines, smile lines, or other dynamic wrinkles can consider Xeomin as part of their cosmetic treatment plan. They should be mentally and physically healthy and have positive, realistic expectations for their results. 

Xeomin isn’t the right solution for women who are pregnant or nursing or for those who suffer from neurological conditions. The best way to tell for sure if you are a candidate for Xeomin is to meet with our team for a private consultation.

What happens after my Xeomin injections?

After your Xeomin session, you will be able to return to your busy, active lifestyle right away. Minor swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites will dissipate by the next day. Xeomin treatment takes around 30 minutes and results can be seen within a few days. Your outcome typically lasts about 4 months.

How soon can I see my results with Xeomin?

Xeomin results become fully visible within 4-5 days. Some patients notice a marked reduction in their forehead lines as soon as the day after their injections.

Is Xeomin safe?

Xeomin has passed the highest standards of safety created by the FDA and has been used successfully to treat the signs of aging since 2011.

How does Xeomin differ from BOTOX?

Xeomin contains fewer additives than BOTOX, so it is often substituted when a client does not respond well to BOTOX injections. Some clients can develop resistance to the proteins contained in BOTOX, so the purer formulation of Xeomin is useful in these cases. Our team will help to decide which product is most beneficial for you.
