Xeomin FAQ

Conveniently located to serve South Florida including Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Deerfield.

What Is Xeomin, and How Does It Work?

Xeomin works in the same way that Botox and Dysport do, by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contraction. This results in a temporary reduction of muscle activity in the treated area, leading to a softening in visible wrinkles or muscle spasms.

How Is Xeomin Different from Botox and Dysport?

Xeomin is often referred to as a “naked” neurotoxin because it does not contain the accessory proteins found in Botox and Dysport. This lack of accessory proteins may decrease the likelihood of developing antibodies against the toxin, potentially making Xeomin an effective option for long-term treatment. However, individual responses can vary, and one product is not necessarily better than the others for all patients.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Xeomin Injections?

Adults who are bothered by moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows may be good candidates for Xeomin injections. Ideal candidates are in good general health, are not allergic to botulinum toxin, and do not have an infection at the proposed injection site.

What Should I Expect During a Xeomin Treatment?

A Xeomin treatment involves a series of small injections directly into the muscles responsible for the unwanted wrinkles or muscle spasms. The procedure is quick, typically taking about 10 to 20 minutes, and can be performed in a healthcare provider’s office with minimal downtime.

How Long Does It Take for Xeomin to Work?

The effects of Xeomin usually become noticeable within 3 to 5 days after treatment, with maximum effects seen around 30 days. The timing can vary based on the individual and the area treated.

How Long Does the Effect of Xeomin Last?

The effects of Xeomin are temporary, typically lasting approximately three to four months, though this can vary depending on the individual, the area treated, and the dosage used. Periodic maintenance treatments are necessary to maintain the effects.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, patients can return to their normal activities immediately after receiving Xeomin injections but should remain upright for at least four hours. Additionally, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities, rubbing, or massaging the treated area, and exposure to extreme temperatures for the first 24 hours after treatment to prevent the spreading of the toxin.
