What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is composed of botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox and Dysport. However, Xeomin does not contain associated proteins that other similar products contain, so it is sometimes called “naked Botox.”
Xeomin is used to treat various wrinkles, including:
- Frown lines (glabellar lines) between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Smoker’s lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Bunny lines
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator capable of allowing overworked facial muscles to relax, which in turn makes fine wrinkles disappear. It does not prevent the patient from making natural facial expressions or contracting the muscles. Instead, it lessens muscle contractions when making facial expressions to prevent the formation of permanent wrinkles like laugh lines and frown lines.
Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin Injection?
Patients who have developed fine dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles due to muscle contraction) are ideal candidates for Xeomin treatment. Patients who experience reduced sensitivity due to other neuromodulator products may consider Xeomin injections.
Patients who do not want invasive facial procedures like brow lifts are recommended to try Xeomin. Candidates must be willing to follow skincare recommendations for optimal results. Patients who are committed to following the treatment plan, including maintenance treatments, can make their results last even longer.
During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and examine your facial areas. We will evaluate your medical records before recommending a suitable treatment. We will then create a personalized treatment plan.
We will discuss all the details of the treatment plan with you. We will cover the treatment session, downtime, potential results, and cost. We will also provide instructions for Xeomin preparation. Feel free to ask questions at any time.
Your Treatment Session
The treatment session for Xeomin can last up to 30 minutes. The actual injections themselves can be done in as fast as 10 minutes. A topical anesthetic or ice may be used to numb the injection sites beforehand to make the patient comfortable during treatment.
The patient can go home right after the treatment session. No recovery period is needed.
The injection sites must not be touched within 3 hours after injection. Physical activities should be avoided for at least 1 day after treatment. The patient can see the results within a week.
The results will usually last around 3 months. Follow-up treatments will be necessary to extend the duration of the results.
How Much Does Xeomin Treatment Cost?
The price of Xeomin injections will depend on the treatment plan. The amount used and the treatment areas will be considered when determining the total cost of the procedure.
