Xeomin injectables contain incobotulinumtoxinA, a pure protein that relaxes the underlying muscles in the body to address deep wrinkles and fine lines in the face.*

What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin Is a Type of Botulinum Toxin Injectable Used to Temporarily Reduce the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles. The Active Ingredient in Xeomin Is Incobotulinumtoxina, a Pure Protein That Relaxes the Underlying Muscles in the Body. This Powerful Protein Is Very Effective at Treating Deep Wrinkles and Fine Lines on the Face.

It Works by Blocking Nerve Impulses That Cause Muscle Contractions, Leading to a Temporary Relaxation of the Muscle and Smoothing of the Overlying Skin. Similar to Botox, It Relaxes Your Facial Muscles to Improve Frown Lines, Forehead Lines, Crow’s Feet, Neck Laxity, Smoker’s Lines, Pebbly Chin and Excessive Sweating.

What Are the Differences Between Xeomin and Botox?

Comparing Xeomin and Botox Is a Matter of Personal Preference and Individual Response, As Both Are Similar in Terms of Their Active Ingredient and Mechanism of Action. Both Xeomin and Botox Are Botulinum Toxin Type a Products That Temporarily Paralyze Muscle Activity, Leading to a Reduction in the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles.

The Two Products Are Actually Considered Quite Interchangeable, As They Share the Same Physiologic Method. In Fact, If You Have Used Botox Cosmetic in the Past, You Can Easily Make the Switch to Xeomin. Although, You May Need Different Amounts of These Two Products If You Have Used One in the Past.

The Main Difference Between the Two Lies in Their Formulation, With Xeomin Being a More Purified Form of Botulinum Toxin and Lacking Some of the Accessory Proteins That Are Present in Botox. However, the Efficacy and Safety of Both Products Are Comparable, and the Choice Between the Two Is Often a Matter of Personal Preference and Individual Goals.

Xeomin Is Considered a “naked Injectable,” Since It Does Not Contain the Protein Additives That Are Found in Botox. If You Are One of the Rare Individuals Who Has Developed Antibodies to the Protein Additives in Botox Cosmetic or Dysport, Then Xeomin May Work Very Well for You.* the Likelihood of a Patient Developing Resistance to Xeomin Is Diminished. At Your Consultation With Dr. Rubin, She Will Help You to Determine the Best Treatment Option for Your Needs and Goals.

How Long Does a Treatment Take?

A Xeomin Treatment Session Typically Takes Only a Few Minutes to Complete. The Exact Duration of the Treatment Will Depend on the Extent of the Area Being Treated and the Number of Injections Required.

The Procedure Is Typically Performed on an Outpatient Basis and Does Not Require Any Downtime. Most People Are Able to Return to Their Normal Activities Immediately After the Treatment. The Treatment Is Relatively Painless, and a Numbing Cream or Local Anesthetic Can Be Applied to the Area Before the Injections to Minimize Discomfort.

A Xeomin Treatment Session Typically Consists of the Following Six Steps:

  1. Consultation: Dr. Rubin Will Assess Your Individual Needs and Goals, and Determine If Xeomin Is the Right Treatment Option for You at Your Consultation Appointment.
  2. Schedule Session: You’ll Set an Appointment to Return for Your Xeomin Treatment.
  3. Preparation: The Area to Be Treated Will Be Cleaned and Marked. A Numbing Cream or Local Anesthetic Can Be Applied to Minimize Discomfort During the Injection.
  4. Injection: Xeomin Will Be Carefully Injected Into the Targeted Muscle Groups Using a Fine Needle. The Injection Process Is Relatively Quick and Typically Takes Only a Few Minutes.
  5. Aftercare: The Treated Area May Be Gently Massaged to Help Distribute the Product Evenly. A Cold Compress Can Be Applied to Help Reduce Any Swelling or Redness.
  6. Follow-up: You May Be Asked to Return for a Follow-up Appointment to Assess the Results and Determine If Additional Treatments Are Necessary to Maintain the Desired Effects.

What Can I Expect From the Results?

Results Depend on the Areas and Depth of Lines Expected to Be Treated. They Can Be Customized Based on the Amount of Xeomin That’s Injected and How Much Is Used in Each Treatment Section. It Usually Takes Several Days for the Full Effects to Appear, but You Should Notice a More Refreshed Appearance. The Results of Xeomin Treatment Typically Become Visible Within 3 to 7 Days After the Injection and Can Last for up to 3 to 4 Months.

The Exact Duration of the Results Can Vary From Person to Person and Depend on Several Factors, Such As the Individual’s Age, Skin Type, Muscle Activity, and the Amount of Product Used. Wrinkle Arrestor Injectibles Usually Last for Several Months Before the Next Treatment Is Needed. The Time Between Injection Treatments Will Increase the More You Use Xeomin. Individual Results May Vary and Cannot Be Guaranteed.

The Right Candidate

The Right Candidate for Xeomin Treatment Is an Adult With Moderate to Severe Frown Lines Between the Eyebrows (Also Known As Glabellar Lines) and Other Facial Wrinkles or Folds, Who Is Looking for a Temporary Improvement in Their Appearance. All Potential Candidates Need to Have Realistic Expectations About Their Results.

It’s Also Important to Be in Good Health. Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women, Individuals With Certain Neuromuscular Disorders, and Those With Allergies to Any of the Ingredients in Xeomin Should Not Receive This Treatment. Dr. Rubin Will Consider All of This at You Appointment, so Be Sure to Disclose Any Health Concerns That Might Interact With Injectable Treatments.

Multiple Treatments

Xeomin Is Designed to Temporarily Reduce the Appearance of Moderate to Severe Frown Lines Between the Eyebrows, Crow’s Feet, and Other Areas of the Face Where Wrinkles and Fine Lines Are Present. As a Neuromodulator, This Injectable Can Get Your Facial Muscles to Rest, Making Those Unwanted Facial Lines and Wrinkles Smooth Out and Diminish.

The Treatment Works by Relaxing the Muscle Activity That Causes Wrinkles, Leading to a Smoother and More Youthful Appearance. It Is Important to Note That Xeomin Is Not a Permanent Solution for Aging Skin and the Results Are Temporary. Repeated Treatments May Be Necessary to Maintain the Desired Results. Additionally, Individual Results May Vary, and It Is Important to Have Realistic Expectations About the Results of the Treatment.

The Number of Xeomin Injections Needed for Optimal Results Can Vary Depending on the Individual’s Specific Needs and Goals. The Amount of Product Used Will Depend on the Extent of the Wrinkles and the Area Being Treated. Generally, One or Two Injections Per Treatment Session Are Sufficient for Most People. However, the Exact Number of Injections Needed Can Vary and May Depend on the Severity of the Wrinkles, the Area Being Treated, and the Individual’s Response to the Treatment.

Combining Treatments

Something Else to Consider Is That You May Benefit From Using a Combination of Treatments to Achieve Your Goals, Even If They Are to Appear Natural. Nonsurgical Procedures That Can Accompany Xeomin Injections Provide Significant Improvement to the Appearance of Your Skin’s Surface and Aid in Giving You a Refreshed Look.

Dermal Fillers and Neurotransmitters Are Often Used Together to Give You a More Youthful Look. This Combination Is Sometimes Referred to As a “Liquid Facelift” Since It Can Have Such a Powerful Anti-aging Effect!

Laser Treatments and IPL Photfacials for Skin Resurfacing or Skin Tightening Can Provide Beautiful Results and Chemical Peels or a Hydrafacial Can Also Be Combined With Xeomin to Help You Achieve Your Desired Look.

Preventative Aging

Muscle-arresting Injections Aren’t Just for Reducing Already Existing Lines on Older Faces. Younger Patients Are Also Coming in to Stop Aging From Happening Prematurely. While Aging Is a Natural Process That Affects Everyone and Is Influenced by a Variety of Factors, Including Genetics, Lifestyle, and Environmental Factors… We Can Slow the Process and Its Effects on Your Skin.

Xeomin Can Temporarily Stop the Forming of Wrinkles and Fine Lines When You Choose to Inject Areas Where Muscles Commonly Contract the Skin and Form Creases. This Slows the Look of Aging As It Prevents Wrinkles From Being Able to Form.
