Although you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without worrying about the lasting effects in earlier years, you may now be realizing that the facial lines and wrinkles caused by these expressions are no longer disappearing after your face relaxes. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles and are caused by the overuse of the facial muscles that make them stay contracted, crafting etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, much like BOTOX, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with purified botulinum toxin type A so these dynamic wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Nevada, we provide several aesthetic injectables, like Xeomin wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman for more information about Xeomin.
"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019
Xeomin can help to decrease the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as forehead lines, Crow's feet, smile and laugh lines, or frown lines. The best candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and are not allergic to other botulinum products, like BOTOX. Speak with Dr. Z during your consult about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so he can personalize a Xeomin treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin injections typically last under 15 – 20 minutes from start to finish and can be completed in our procedure room after your consult. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be cleaned before Xeomin is meticulously injected with a specialized needle. The procedure is fast and does not generally 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 reduce minor bleeding prior to your leaving.
What to Expect
You will be able to leave our facility upon the completion of your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, heavy activities should be skipped until the following day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite recovery and results. After a Xeomin treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising, and redness of the treatment areas, but these symptoms are common and can be easily covered with makeup. Many patients will notice marked improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin treatment, lasting about three months. Touch-ups at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas can be arranged to optimize your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Xeomin cost?
The cost of your Xeomin treatment will depend on the number of injections needed to address your unique concerns. During your consultation, you will share your goals so your treatment plan can be created and then your cost can be estimated. Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas accepts many forms of payment and frequently has specials on injectable treatments, like Xeomin.
Should I get Xeomin or BOTOX?
Xeomin is different from BOTOX and other injectable wrinkle relaxers because it only contains one ingredient (botulinum toxin A) and does not contain any additives, which lessens the chances of building antibodies against the medication. You should not use Xeomin with other botulinum products. During your consultation, Dr. Z can determine the best injectable wrinkle relaxer for you and your cosmetic goals.
Is Xeomin FDA approved?
Yes, Xeomin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic uses. Based on two U.S. clinical trials, Xeomin is a safe and effective treatment for adults with cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. It has been widely used for decades and is a very popular treatment worldwide.
Who cannot get Xeomin?
Medications, such as cold and allergy medication, muscle relaxers, sleeping aids, and urinary medications, can increase the chance of Xeomin’s side effects. You should let Dr. Z know during your first visit if you are currently using any blood thinners or antibiotics.
How do I maintain my results from Xeomin?
Xeomin injections have a temporary effect and are given months apart. During your consultation, be sure to ask Dr. Z about how often you should visit Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas for touch-ups.
