What does Xeomin do and which areas does it treat?

Xeomin is a neurotoxin that inhibits muscle contraction. It smooths away lines and wrinkles for a more youthful facial look. It treats various facial areas, including:

  • Forehead
  • Vertical creases between brows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Lip Creases

Tiny quantities of Xeomin are injected directly into the targeted muscles. You should see the results developing during the first week, with full results achieved at about ten days after your treatment. Schedule a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment with Xeomin.


What does Xeomin treat?

A cosmetic injectable, Xeomin is a purer form of the neurotoxin in BOTOX and Dysport. It affects the nerve signals that trigger facial muscle contractions. If you have consistently had treatments with BOTOX or Dysport and notice these treatments are not working as well, it may be due to you developing antibodies to the proteins in these products. Xeomin is an excellent alternative, used to smooth facial lines and creases created by squinting, frowning or concentrating.

How long do the results last?

The results last between three to six months. Maintenance treatments should be scheduled when you notice the smoothing effect fading. Every person is slightly different in how long Xeomin treatments last. One advantage is that Xeomin appears to work more quickly than BOTOX – which could be important if you have an upcoming social event.

Why choose a facial plastic surgeon for my treatment?

For Xeomin injections or other neuromodulator treatments, ensure you are under the care of a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Jonathan Pontell specializes in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and uses the highest level of precision and accuracy in administering Xeomin. He has a delicate touch, a thorough understanding of facial muscles, and natural talent and artistry you can trust to create beautiful results with Xeomin injections.

Why should I choose Dr. Pontell?

Dr. Pontell is double board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. He specializes in surgical and non-surgical treatments for the face, head, and neck. His dedication to the art of facial surgery includes years of education and experience to achieve double board-certification. By specializing in facial enhancements, Dr. Pontell has gained acclaim for his exceptional results with neuromodulator injections, including Xeomin, and you can trust that he maintains the highest patient health and safety standards.
