Although you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make a range of other facial expressions without worrying about the consequences when you were younger, you may now be noticing the remnants left behind: lines and folds along the forehead and throughout the face. These lines are typically called dynamic wrinkles. They're caused by the contraction of facial muscles that occurs when we make expressions, which forms etched lines on the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum so your skin appears smoother and softer. At Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA, we provide a number of aesthetic and dermatology procedures similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Schedule your consultation with a member of our team of experienced medical injectors for more information about Xeomin and complementary facial rejuvenation services.
Xeomin helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, and smile and laugh lines. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are people in good overall health, not currently pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Speak with a member of our skilled team during your consultation about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so we can create a customized injectable treatment plan that is specific to your goals and needs.
Xeomin injections typically last under 30 minutes from beginning to end and can be completed in our procedure room immediately after your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be sterilized before Xeomin is gently injected with a dermal needle. This treatment is fast and generally does not cause great discomfort so local anesthesia is not necessary but available upon request. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the site of the injections to prevent minor bleeding prior to your return home.
What to Expect
You will be permitted to leave our facility after receiving your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, vigorous exercise should be avoided until the next day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite your recovery and results. After your Xeomin treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the treatment areas, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many individuals will notice remarkable improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin treatment lasting approximately three months. Touch-up injections at Body+Beauty Lab can be scheduled ahead of time to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Xeomin cost?
Costs for a Xeomin treatment will vary, depending on the amount required to suit your needs and concerns. In your consultation, you will discuss your primary concerns and goals so your injector can develop a personalized plan tailored to you. From there, we will be able to calculate an estimate of your costs. Body+Beauty Lab accepts several payment methods and sometimes has deals on Xeomin and nonsurgical treatments. If interested, you should ask about joining our VIP membership, which will give you access to exclusive deals and discounts on several of our most popular services.
Should I get Xeomin or BOTOX?
BOTOX and Xeomin are both wrinkle relaxers activated by botulinum toxin. The skilled injectors at Body+Beauty Lab fully understand the differences between the two products so they can help you decide which will deliver your desired results. In your consultation, your injector will understand your concerns before deciding if Xeomin or a different brand should be used.
Should I get Xeomin or fillers?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Xeomin, improve the look of dynamic wrinkles, particularly the frown and smile lines while a dermal filler improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Talk to your injector about your needs/concerns and cosmetic goals so they can decide if you need Xeomin, a filler, or both.
Is Xeomin safe?
Xeomin has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as a cosmetic treatment, and it can be used safely on most men and women. During your consultation, your injector will ask a few questions, like if you have any allergies or take prescription medications, supplements, and herbs. You need to be honest to avoid side effects or complications.
How often should I get Xeomin injections?
Your Xeomin results can last for up to 90 days. Every person will metabolize Xeomin differently so the length of your treatment will vary, depending on this metabolization. During your appointment, your injector will let you know how soon you should receive your next Xeomin injection.
