Like other wrinkle-reducing treatments, Xeomin® injections only take a few minutes and do not require anesthesia or downtime. However, you should avoid heavy lifting, vigorous exercise, or moving treated muscles for up to 4 hours after your appointment. Xeomin® injections are commonly used to treat lines and wrinkles in the following areas:
- Glabellar lines (the “11s”)
- Forehead lines
- Lateral canthal lines (the “crow’s feet”)
Xeomin® vs. Other Injectables
Is Xeomin® right for me?
Xeomin® is a great choice for adults over the age 18 who want to soften facial lines — especially if alternatives like Botox are no longer producing results. However, because every patient is unique, our team will discuss your aesthetic goals before selecting a treatment.
As with all injectables, you may experience mild and temporary bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site. Some patients have also reported headaches for a day or two after receiving treatment for glabellar lines.
The Beauty Benefits of Xeomin®
Repeated facial expressions like frowning, squinting, and smiling can cause fine lines across the forehead, eyebrows, and around the eyes. As we age, those lines become deeper and more prominent. Xeomin® injections help reduce the visibility of those lines by relaxing targeted facial muscles. Results usually become noticeable three days after treatment and can last as long as six months.
