Xeomin is a popular cosmetic injectable used to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. It’s made from a highly purified form of botulinum toxin type A and administered by a board-certified dermatologist at Gavino Dermatology. Xeomin is a safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.
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.
- 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
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.
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.
