XEOMIN® is an FDA approved Botulinum toxin injection which is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. Similar to Botox® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® is a protein that helps relax muscles in the face that create unwanted expressions, such as frown lines between the brows, lines in the forehead, and crow’s feet. After XEOMIN® is injected into the muscle, those muscles are relaxed for approximately 3 to 4 months. Individual results vary, and are not guaranteed.
Time of onset is 3-4 days for most people, but the final result should not be expected until 14 days after injection.
You can go about your normal routine immediately after the injection. Most side effects are mild, and may include localized bruising and soreness. To maintain your results, XEOMIN® treatments may be needed every three to four months.
How Many Injections Will I Receive?
Every patient is unique; therefore, the number of units and injections differ from one person to another. Typically, for the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 2-3 areas. For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5-7 injections into muscles in your forehead. Other areas can also be injected. Dr Kashouty or Dr Yono will discuss all different options with you.
What is the Average Treatment Cost?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr Kashouty or Dr Yono will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your wrinkles within days.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.
