All About Xeomin

Xeomin is a cosmetic injectable that reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, just like BOTOX and Dysport. However, the key difference in Xeomin is that it is the only neuromodulator that is a purified state of BoNT-A and made without foreign accessory proteins. There are no unnecessary additives, which means you cannot build up a tolerance to it. It may also be a great option for individuals for whom BOTOX has stopped working as well. 

Advantages of Xeomin

  • No additives 
  • Results show up faster than with BOTOX 
  • Less risk of developing a tolerance 
  • Fewer units may be needed with Xeomin than with BOTOX
  • Can last up to six months
  • Much more planet-friendly, as there is no Styrofoam® waste

How Xeomin Works

Xeomin is a botulinum toxin that, when injected, temporarily blocks the affected muscles from moving. When the muscle cannot move, it cannot make a wrinkle form. This produces a significantly smoother appearance, which takes years off and greatly improves your look. 

Commonly Treated Areas

  • Crow’s feet 
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines 
  • A dimpled chin
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Smoker’s lines around the mouth

Procedure Details

Like most cosmetic injectables, Xeomin treatments are fast, simple, and convenient. We will cleanse your face and prep your skin, and then the injections will be administered using a fine needle. Treatment time takes 15-30 minutes.

Downtime and Results: What to Expect

Although you can return to your regular day after treatment, it’s important that you refrain from touching your face, performing strenuous activities, and lying down for 4-6 hours. 

Side effects are rare and temporary, but may include a droopy eyelid, nausea, redness, headache, dry eyes/mouth, problems with vision, and discomfort at the neck or injection sites. Results may take 5-10 days to appear and may last up to six months.
