What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a FDA-approved injectable that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. A bit newer to the U.S. market, Xeomin is making a name for itself with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow as a “naked” toxin.

How does Xeomin differ from Botox/Dysport?

Similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is a botulinum toxin type A but there’s one thing that sets it apart. What makes Xeomin so unique is that it does not have any additives in its composition - no extra proteins. It is truly a “naked” toxin option which greatly reduces any changes of your body creating antibodies against it. Antibodies produced within the body can cause any botulinum toxin A product to be less effective.

So if you think you’re just beginning your journey to treat wrinkles, this is a great option!

What will my Xeomin appointment look like?

Xeomin treatments are quick, convenient and non-invasive. Expect to spend about 30 minutes in the Zen Aesthetics office for your initial treatment. The procedure itself only takes about 10-15 minutes. 

Discomfort is minimal but may include a slight burning sensation at the injection site. Some people experience slight bruising, swelling, or pinpoint redness at the site of the injections, but these effects fade quickly.

What to expect after your treatment?

You’ll begin to notice changes in the look of your wrinkles after 3-4 days. On average, optimal results can be seen in about 7 days. The best part is that there’s minimal downtime. You can go right back to work or proceed with other light daily activities following your session. 

Xeomin and other wrinkle-reducing treatments like Botox and Dysport provide temporary results so it is recommended to schedule a treatment every 3-4 months. Exactly how long you see a benefit depends on your personal metabolism and the extent of wrinkling.

With Xeomin, it's just the frown lines that are minimized, not your expressions. In other words: natural-looking results that look and feel like you!
