XEOMIN® is a neuromodulator that smooths dynamic wrinkles – the lines and creases created by constant facial muscle motions. It is a slightly different formula than other anti-aging injectables, as it was developed to be free from added proteins.

How Does XEOMIN® Work?

A cosmetic injectable, XEOMIN® is a purer form of the neurotoxin utilized 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, it may be due to you developing antibodies to the proteins in these products. XEOMIN® is an excellent alternative to smooth facial lines and creases created by squinting, frowning, or concentrating.

What Can I Expect From the XEOMIN® Treatment?

Tiny quantities of XEOMIN® are injected directly into the targeted muscles based on your desired aesthetic results. Dr. Pontell will discuss the amounts and locations of the injections during your initial consultation, so you know what kind of results you can expect. You should see the results developing during the first week, with full results achieved about ten days after your treatment. Schedule a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment with XEOMIN®.

XEOMIN® Results

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. However, XEOMIN® lasts about three to six months in most patients. One advantage of Xeomin to consider is that it appears to take effect more quickly than BOTOX® – which could be helpful if you have an upcoming social event.

Am I a Candidate?

You are a good candidate for XEOMIN® if you are over 21, in good general health, are not pregnant or nursing, and are not allergic to the product. XEOMIN® is FDA-approved and often advised as an alternative for patients seeing reduced results from BOTOX® injections. If you have ever had an adverse reaction to BOTOX® or Dysport®, you should not try XEOMIN® but speak with us about our wide array of alternative anti-aging treatments.
