What is Xeomin?


Xeomin is a form of cosmetic injectable that works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Created using a neurotoxin called incobotulinumtoxinA, it is similar to Botox which is the most known of the botulin-based injectables used for cosmetic purposes. It works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles in the treated area to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These lines naturally appear over time as the result of our faces making a variety of facial expressions, such as frowning, smiling, laughing, and raising our eyebrows, that cause dynamic facial movements.

The vertical lines between the eyebrows are called the glabellar lines, and it is these lines that Xeomin has been FDA-approved to treat. While the FDA approval is specifically for moderate to severe cases of glabellar lines, it has also been commonly used to treat additional areas of the face where the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can cause a person to show signs of aging.

How often can you get Xeomin Injections?


Like most other cosmetic treatments, including injections, Xeomin injections don’t provide permanent results against the signs of aging. The longevity of the results will vary from one person to the next depending on the severity of their wrinkles and fine lines, as well as how quickly their body metabolizes the injections. In most cases, patients can expect their results to last for around four months before they require additional injections to maintain the smoothness of their skin. Xeomin injections don’t require downtime following the injection treatment, making it easy to get them done when it fits in your schedule.

The appointment itself is quick, so it can often be done over a lunch hour or while out running other errands in a day, and with no downtime, people can go on with their normal day-to-day activities immediately following the injection. Your certified Xeomin injection specialist can let you know what to expect from your treatment, including how soon you can see results and how long you can expect your results to last.

How should I prepare for a Xeomin injection?


Xeomin injections are a quick and easy cosmetic procedure that is performed in a doctor’s office, or by equally trained and certified injection specialists. Your injection practitioner can provide you with any specific steps you need to take to prepare for your injections based on your current health and beauty routine. As the treatment is minimally invasive, classified as such due to the microneedle breaking the skin’s surface, preparations will be minimal.

However, you may need to stop taking certain medications or supplements in the lead-up to your appointment and avoid certain beauty routines that can affect the area of the skin to be treated. Things to avoid leading up to your Xeomin injection appointment can include medications or supplements that can potentially increase bleeding and bruising, and antioxidants can prevent the necessary clotting of blood vessels. Any makeup you wear to the appointment will also be removed during the process of cleansing the area before the injection, so you may want to avoid makeup altogether until after your treatment.

What should I expect during a Xeomin injection?


A Xeomin injection treatment will be quick and easy, with minimal discomfort during the injection itself. Every person reacts differently to needles, but most people report feeling only a mild pinch when the needle goes in and otherwise no pain. Patients who are nervous about needles or potential pain, can request a numbing cream to be applied to the area before the administration of the injections to minimize any feelings of discomfort.

At Center for SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery, we want our patients to feel comfortable before, during, and after their treatment. During your consultation appointment, please discuss any concerns you have with your certified Xeomin injection specialist so we can address them and provide you with any necessary comfort for your treatment. For more information, contact us. We serve patients from Langhorne PA, Philadelphia PA, Newtown PA, Levittown PA, Bensalem PA, Yardley PA and surrounding areas.
