Soften Unwanted Frown Lines

Xeomin is a cosmetic injectable made from a highly purified botulinum toxin type A. It’s used to temporarily improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother and more youthful appearance. The results appear gradually within a few days and last for 3-4 months.

Xeomin Treats:

  • Frown lines (also known as 11 lines or glabellar lines)
  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Bunny lines (lines on the nose)
  • Lip lines (smoker’s lines)
  • Chin dimpling
  • Neckbands

How Xeomin Works

Dynamic wrinkles are formed by the repetitive contraction of facial muscles when you convey certain expressions, such as frowning or squinting. Xeomin is made of a highly purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily blocks the nerve signals that cause these muscle contractions.

By relaxing these facial muscles, Xeomin reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. As such, Xeomin addresses the root cause of wrinkles.

Naked Botulinum Toxin

Xeomin is sometimes called a “naked” toxin because it is made from a highly purified form of botulinum toxin type A with no additional proteins or additives. This makes Xeomin different from other neuromodulators, such as Botox, which contain additional proteins. The absence of these proteins makes Xeomin more durable, and you’re less likely to develop a tolerance to the product after years of continued use.

Benefits of Xeomin:

  • Non-surgical injectable treatment
  • Minimal discomfort during the treatment
  • No need for anesthesia
  • No post-treatment downtime
  • Minimal side effects after the treatment
  • Long-lasting results (typically 3-4 months)
  • Improve overall self-esteem
  • Target the root cause of wrinkles
  • Purified form of botulinum toxin without additives

Your Experience

During your Xeomin session, our medical providers will consult with you to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs. The procedure itself takes a few minutes and is relatively painless. The medical provider will inject small amounts of Xeomin into the targeted muscle using a fine needle. Some patients may experience mild discomfort, such as a slight pinching sensation, during the injection. The complete treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes

Recovery & Side Effects

There is no downtime after a Xeomin treatment, and you can return to your normal activities immediately. You may experience mild side effects such as redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, but these should subside within a few days. In rare cases, you may experience headaches or muscle weakness, but these side effects should also dissipate quickly. Please avoid strenuous workouts for a day or two to ensure optimal recovery.

The Xeomin Results

The results of your Xeomin treatment can be seen within a few days, and will continue to improve for up to 14 days. Xeomin temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, making your skin look smoother and more youthful. The results usually last for 3-4 months, after which the treatment will need to be repeated to maintain the desired results. Most patients opt for 3-4 sessions per year to maintain an effortlessly youthful appearance.
