What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is made up of botulinum toxin type A (incobotulinumtoxinA, to be specific). It is a very effective treatment for facial wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, around the lips, and between the eyebrows.
Its main difference from Botox is the absence of accessory proteins. Due to the lack of foreign accessory ingredients, Xeomin treatment is less likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to Botox and similar products.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin functions as a neuromodulator. Once it is injected into the facial muscles, it interferes with the signals from the nerves to the muscles. As a result, the muscles relax, which also leads to the relaxation of the skin. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin Treatment?
Patients with fine lines and wrinkles in their facial area are excellent candidates for Xeomin injections. Xeomin treatment is ideal for patients who do not want to undergo a surgical facelift to treat their wrinkles.
Patients who have experienced allergic reactions from Botox and other injectables are candidates for Xeomin treatment. Patients who have experienced excellent results from Botox treatments are also good candidates for Xeomin. Candidates must have realistic expectations.
During your consultation, you will discuss the facial areas you are concerned about. We will examine these areas in detail to assess the extent of your signs of aging and determine the ideal treatment option. We will also evaluate your medical records.
We will go over the Xeomin treatment process, discussing preparation, results, recovery, treatment cost, and more. You can ask any questions you may have throughout your consultation.
Your Xeomin Session
The Xeomin treatment session takes 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. We will cleanse the treatment area and apply a numbing cream. We will then inject Xeomin in specific amounts to the targeted areas. The treatment areas will be cleaned to complete the session.
After Your Xeomin Treatment
No recovery time is needed after Xeomin injections. Patients will be given detailed aftercare instructions. Patients must keep their hands away from their face, especially the treatment areas, for at least 3 hours. They are discouraged from performing strenuous activities for at least 6 hours after their treatment. Patients can see the results after a week, and results can last 3 to 4 months.
How Much Does Xeomin Cost?
The price for Xeomin treatment will be based on the number of vials used. The number of treatment areas can also affect the overall price of the treatment.
