Xeomin

Xeomin is a simple, non-surgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. One ten minute treatment keeps these lines relaxed up to 3 months. No pre-testing is required.

Facial Wrinkle Treatments with Xeomin®

Facial wrinkle treatments using Xeomin involves temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract, and effectively smoothing and reducing the appearance of:

  • Frown Lines Between the Brows
  • Horizontal Brow Furrows
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Bunny Lines in the Nasal Area

Xeomin is a botulinum toxin, similar to Botox, that blocks the nerve signals to facial muscles that cause frown lines or other wrinkles.

Unlike its competitors, Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. The major benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to Xeomin because there are simply less ingredients in the solution.

Facial wrinkle treatments with Xeomin involves the injection of a minuscule amount of incobotulinumtoxinA, which is a botulinum toxin type A. Xeomin wrinkle treatment works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After Xeomin injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.

Following a Xeomin wrinkle treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any pressure on the area for at least 4 or 5 hours.

The results of the Xeomin injections are not instant. Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days, with the final result achieved in about a week. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance.

Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 3 to 4 months or longer.

XEOMIN

Xeomin is the new choice for wrinkle prevention. XEOMIN is the new choice for wrinkle prevention. It works just like BOTOX® and uses the same active ingredient to reduce wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. The difference is that XEOMIN contains no protein additives, and your body may be less likely to develop resistance to its purer formulation. Like BOTOX, XEOMIN prevents wrinkles from forming by relaxing the muscles that cause them. When the muscles are smooth, the skin above them stays smooth, too. XEOMIN is effective on frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, forehead creases, lip lines, and crow’s feet. After deadening the treatment area with a topical anesthetic, we inject XEOMIN into the underlying muscles that form your frown lines. By inhibiting these muscles, XEOMIN stops wrinkles before they can form. Treatment takes 20 minutes or less, and you may resume your regular activities immediately. You should refrain from vigorous exercise or laying flat for a few hours following treatment but may otherwise resume normal activities. XEOMIN has no downtime and little to no pain or discomfort. You will start seeing results three to seven days after treatment and will have your best results after 30 days. Results typically last three months. XEOMIN should not be injected if you have an infection at the site, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or with certain neurologic conditions. Your physician should be advised of your medical history before receiving XEOMIN.

XEOMIN® CHICAGO

What is Xeomin®?

Xeomin® is a FDA approved prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).

How does Xeomin® work?

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause permanent frown lines. Xeomin® acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin® can temporarily reduce forehead lines resulting in younger looking skin.

What can I expect during treatment?

During treatment, which usually takes about 15-20 minutes, Xeomin® is injected into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows.

When can I expect to see results?

Most patients observe visible smoothing of the forehead lines as early as three to seven days after the treatment. Results typically last about three months.

  • Wrinkle Relaxer
  • No Downtime
  • Safe for All Skin Types

Just like Botox and Dysport, the major component of the Xeomin injection is also a botolinum toxin known as the incobotolinumtoxinA. The only difference this kind of toxin has in comparison to other types is that it does not have to be placed in the refrigeration before it is reconstituted.

The mechanism of action of Xeomin is similar to the other botolinum A toxin-using injections. It inhibits nerve activities in areas where it is injected, which results to decreased muscular activity. When injected to the frown lines in between the eyebrows, Xeomin will then cause relaxation of the muscles in that area; and as a result, it will also temporarily iron-out the glabellar lines.

Xeomin injection is for individuals who have moderate to severe glabellar lines. It is of utmost importance, however, to take time to talk to an aesthetic specialist to really know if you are a qualified candidate to receive the treatment.

When most people think about treating dynamic wrinkles, they usually think of BOTOX®. While BOTOX® is an effective dynamic wrinkle treatment, there are other products on the market that work just as well or even better. One option that you may want to consider is XEOMIN®.

XEOMIN® is a treatment that was approved by the FDA in 2011 in order to be used for aesthetic purposes. It is especially effective at treating frown lines. XEOMIN® works in a similar way to BOTOX®. When it is injected into the facial muscles, it causes them to relax. This means that muscles that have been accustomed to staying contracted are able to relax, and then they do not cause those deep wrinkles in your face that make you look older.

Individuals are usually interested in products like XEOMIN® and BOTOX® when people constantly tell them that they look a certain way when they do not feel that way. For example, you may have a deep crease between your brows that causes you to look angry or dissatisfied. However, you may not feel that way at all. All you need is a couple of injections of XEOMIN® and the muscles between the brows will not stay contracted. Instead of having people tell you that you look upset all the time, people will notice that you look refreshed and younger.

Most individuals are able to see the skin on their face smoothing out after just a couple of days from the time they received the XEOMIN® treatment. The maximum effect will usually be able to be seen after about one month. Most individuals are able to enjoy the results from this treatment for up to three months. Each individual will have a different reaction to the treatment.

The best way for you to decide if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our office. One of the very first things we will do is make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients that are contained in the product.

We will ask about your medical history, making sure that you do not have any health issues that would disqualify you as a candidate for XEOMIN®.

When you come in for the actual treatment, you will only need about 30 minutes. The treatment is very quick, and you can return to all of your normal activities after the injections have been made.
