Xeomin is a neurotoxin injection that works by using incobotulinumtoxinA to stop the frequent muscle contractions that come with everyday facial expressions that cause the deep lines between the eyebrows. This treatment provides results for patients who have moderate to severe frown lines and is a quick, out patient procedure.
Treatment & Results:
Xeomin treatment involves a series of injections with a very small needle across the forehead and around the eyebrows. It usually takes less than 20 minutes and doesn’t require any anesthetics, although some patients prefer to have a topical numbing cream applied prior to the procedure.
Results start to appear within the first 3 to 4 days post-treatment, gradually improving and peaking around the 30-day mark. How long the results last vary by patient, but it can be up to 3 months before another treatment is needed.
One of the biggest advantages to Xeomin is that it requires no real downtime. You can get it on your lunch break and go right back to the office with little to no discomfort. Your provider will talk to you about any skincare recommendations post-treatment, but the usual guidelines are to avoid rubbing or putting pressure on the area for at least 24 hours.
