What Is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a unique form of botulinum that works like Botox® and other botulinum injections to relax dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines and crow's feet. Xeomin® is a more pure form of alternatives like Botox® and Dysport® thanks to a manufacturing process that reduces the amount of accessory proteins. This means you may have good results with Xeomin® if you have developed a resistance to Botox® or never quite responded well. Otherwise, the results of Xeomin® are comparable to other botulinum injectables.
Xeomin® works by blocking nerve communications with muscles responsible for wrinkles. When the underlying muscle is temporarily paralyzed, the wrinkle is relaxed. Over time, Xeomin® injections can even reduce the severity of wrinkles when they return and help prevent new wrinkles from forming in treatment areas.
How Much Does Xeomin® Cost?
The cost of Xeomin® at Clarkston Dermatology can vary depending on the treatment area and the severity of the wrinkles in that area. The amount of wrinkle relaxer needed will be determined by the depth of the wrinkles, size of the treatment area, and correction desired. To make Xeomin® treatment as affordable as possible, we offer financing through CareCredit®.
Am I a Candidate for Xeomin®?
If you are a man or woman with moderate to severe frown lines and are looking for a solution, Xeomin® might be right for you. Do not receive Xeomin® treatments if you are allergic to any of its active ingredients or have ever had an allergic reaction to any botulinum product such as Botox® or Dysport®. Let your doctor know if you’re pregnant, plan to become pregnant, are breastfeeding, or plan to breastfeed.
What Can I Expect After My Xeomin® Treatment?
Xeomin® may cause some initial discomfort during treatment that can continue in the days following treatment. Our doctors here at Clarkston Dermatology will be sure to make your treatment as comfortable and pain-free as possible. As is the case with any dermatological treatment, you may experience side effects, with some of the most common side effects including temporary injection site reactions such as:
- Asthma symptoms
- Feeling faint
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection in the treated area. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, or any abnormal sensations or effects, be sure to call us as soon as possible so that we may help you during your recovery period.
How Long Do Xeomin® Results Last?
The results from Xeomin® last anywhere from three to six months. Touch-up injections and repeat injections are often needed to maintain the desired results. Less material is usually needed with repeat injections. Many people turn to Xeomin® because of the ease with which touch-ups can freshen their appearance affordably and quickly. One can typically expect to see results within one week of getting this treatment. Results may vary from patient to patient.
Why Choose Xeomin®?
What sets Xeomin® apart from the rest of the wrinkle relaxers is that it is made through a state-of-the-art manufacturing process that removes the "accessory proteins” that don’t play an active role in the treatment. This creates the highly purified neurotoxin that we use to make your skin look young and radiant!
