Xeomin is a cosmetic injection that enhances the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines by targeting specific facial muscles. While it’s FDA-approved for glabellar lines, it’s also often used off-label for forehead lines and crow’s feet. Unlike Botox and other similar neurotoxins, Xeomin undergoes a double-filtering process to eliminate superfluous proteins. Each treatment is tailored to your anatomy, ensuring natural-looking outcomes. With Xeomin, you can enjoy smoother, rejuvenated skin without sacrificing natural expressions.

How does Xeomin work?

Xeomin, a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, functions by impeding nerve signals to targeted muscles. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, obstructs the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. By inhibiting this neurotransmission, Xeomin effectively relaxes the treated muscles, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles caused by expressions like laughing and frowning. The result is smoother, more youthful-looking skin, taking several years off your face.

What happens during the Xeomin treatment?

A Xeomin treatment typically lasts 15-30 minutes. First, your healthcare provider will cleanse the treatment area. Then, using a fine needle, they’ll inject Xeomin into targeted facial muscles.

You may experience slight discomfort, but numbing cream or ice packs can be used to alleviate any sensation. Following the injections, you can resume your daily activities immediately.

What are the side effects of Xeomin?

Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. Rarely, you might experience headaches, dry mouth, or drooping eyelids, but our providers take all measures to prevent these unwanted effects.

Is there any downtime after Xeomin?

Downtime after Xeomin injections is minimal. You can resume normal activities immediately. However, to minimize the risk of side effects, avoid strenuous workouts and don’t touch the treated area for the first 24 hours.

When will I see the results?

You’ll begin to notice the effects of Xeomin within a few days, with full results typically visible within two weeks. Your facial muscles gradually relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and leaving you with smoother, rejuvenated skin.

How long do the results last?

The results typically last around three to four months. Over time, as your muscles gradually regain movement, wrinkles may gradually reappear. Consistent treatments can help maintain your smoother, refreshed appearance for longer periods.
