enjoy smoother and wrinkle-free skin

Home » Relaxant » Xeomin®

Xeomin (pronounced zeo-min) is another powerful botulinum type A drug on the market. It was FDA-approved in 2010 and explicitly targeted frown lines. Frown lines are those wrinkles and folds that form on the forehead and between the eyebrows (called glabellar lines which can look like an ’11’) due to constant squinting or frowning. These wrinkles often extend to the eyes and are called Crow’s Feet. By injecting a set amount of Xeomin around these areas, women and men alike can enjoy smoother, wrinkle-free skin for several months.
Xeomin is also approved to treat non-cosmetic conditions like migraines and excessive sweating.

FAQs Xeomin

After your procedure, you won’t see any results at first. Then you’ll start to see results after a few days.

Xeomin should last between 3 to 4 months. After that time, you should see the effects of treatment begin to wear off.

However, some patients have seen continued results right up to 6 months. Over time, the muscles begin to respond again, and some wrinkles will reappear. However, the wrinkles won’t fully return to the way they were before your first session. This is a sign you’ll need another session of Xeomin

Right after you leave the doctor’s office, try not to touch or massage the injection areas. Touching or massaging the areas could move the botulinum toxin to another part of your face. This movement can cause unwanted side effects.

It would help if you also avoid exercise and other strenuous work for at least 24 hours after treatment. Like massage, the added movement and sweating can displace your injectable, reducing its impact. Alcohol, sun exposure, and tanning could also cause bruising, so avoid drinking and sun exposure for at least 24 hours as well.

Most Xeomin patients experience no side effects in addition to the bruising and swelling.
