What Are Xeomin Injections?

Xeomin is a botulinum toxin injection that’s used to treat dynamic wrinkles around your face. Neurotoxins can minimize wrinkles because of their effects when injected into the right facial muscles. Neurotoxin injections like Xeomin contain safe amounts of processed botulinum toxin that can block nerve signals that trigger muscle movement.

When your facial muscles move, it also moves the facial skin and causes it to crease. With repeated movement and aging, it can become difficult for your skin to spring back and will start to show lines, folds, and wrinkles as a result of frequent muscle movement. If left untreated, your muscles will continue to fold your skin and deepen these lines. By freezing your facial muscles, we can prevent creasing and reduce the appearance of these lines over time.

Unlike other botulinum toxin injections like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin stands out because of its unique purification process. Other neurotoxins are generally safe to use, but their botulinum toxin includes additional proteins that weren’t filtered. While these proteins aren’t harmful, they can affect the long-term effectiveness of neurotoxin injections in case your body’s antibodies build a resistance to its effects. Xeomin, however, is organically pure and free of these proteins, which can affect how well your body responds to neurotoxin treatments.

Key Benefits of Receiving Xeomin Injections

On top of the general benefits you can get from botulinum toxin injections, Xeomin provides you with additional benefits that can improve the long-term effectiveness of all neurotoxin treatments. Xeomin’s unique purification system removes all the unnecessary proteins from the botulinum toxin, which can help you experience key benefits such as:

  • Reduced risk of toxin resistance: Your antibodies are less likely to develop a resistance to botulinum toxin injections because of the fewer proteins in Xeomin injections. This ensures that future treatments remain effective without the need for increasing the dosage.
  • Reclaim a naturally youthful appearance: Xeomin can effectively minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and stop them from deepening and giving you an older appearance.
  • Look more approachable: Frown lines are a common dynamic wrinkle that older patients develop. If left untreated, this can deepen and become more prominent, giving you the appearance of frowning or looking angry while you’re at your resting face.
  • Combine with other treatments to enhance your youthful appearance: Dynamic wrinkles aren’t the only signs of aging that can affect your face. You can combine botulinum toxin injections with other procedures like dermal filler treatments. We can include Xeomin when developing a safe and effective treatment plan to tackle all the signs of aging on your face to help provide an overall younger appearance.

Why We Recommend Xeomin Injections

Xeomin offers a pure and safe way of treating dynamic wrinkles. The FDA-approved minimally invasive injection is a less drastic alternative to treating some of the signs of aging. While plastic surgery like facelifts may be an option, invasive procedures come with risks, side effects, and extensive recovery periods. In comparison, botulinum toxin injections can have minor side effects that last for up to two weeks but can allow you to resume most of your day-to-day activities after your injection.

Xeomin is FDA-approved for treating glabellar lines or the vertical lines between your eyebrows. If left untreated, these prominent lines can give your resting face the appearance of looking grouchy or unapproachable. If you want a fast, safe, and effective way of treating these lines, botulinum toxin injections are a good procedure to add to your treatment plan. And if you want an organic version that’s pure of unnecessary proteins, Xeomin may be the right neurotoxin for your treatment.

Our Treatment Process for Xeomin Injections

Before we administer any injections, our patients undergo an initial consultation with Dr. Reitman. This is to see if they’re qualified to receive Xeomin or any other botulinum toxin injection. During your consultation, you’ll get to learn more about Xeomin, what it can or can’t do, if it’s the right treatment option for you, and if you’re a qualified candidate who can receive injections. If you’re not, Dr. Reitman can recommend alternative treatments to address your facial wrinkles.

If you’re a suitable candidate for Xeomin, you can proceed with receiving treatment. Prior to the injection, our staff will apply a numbing cream around the injection sites to minimize the discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Reitman will then administer enough Xeomin into the glabellar muscle between your eyebrows. This whole procedure can take less than half an hour.

It can take up to several days to see visible results. Some minor side effects like bruising, swelling, and pain on the injection sites are common, but these should subside in less than 2 weeks. How long the effects last can vary, but most patients experience it wearing off around 3 to 6 months after treatment. To maintain the effects of your treatment, you’ll need follow-up treatments scheduled around that time.

Are You a Good Candidate for Xeomin Injections?

Xeomin can be used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. For medical procedures, patients have to be at least 2 years old to receive Xeomin for medical purposes like chronic sialorrhea, muscle spasms, cervical dystonia, and blepharospasm.

While patients should be at least 18 years old to receive Xeomin, most patients are older adults who are starting to see fine lines developing between their eyebrows. On the other hand, those who may not be good candidates for Xeomin treatments are those who:

  • Have a muscular, nerve, or neurological medical condition
  • Have any medical condition that can make it difficult to swallow, speak, or breathe
  • Have had a previous allergic reaction to botulinum toxin injections
  • Have had any botulinum toxin injection administered within the last 4 months
  • Have recently had antibiotics, muscle relaxants, allergy medicine, and sleep medicine prior to the injection
  • Have an active skin infection or are treating an infection – wait for your infection to fully heal before getting Xeomin treatments.
  • Had or will have any type of invasive facial surgery
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

If you’re unsure if you fall under any of these criteria, your best option is to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Reitman. She can determine if you’re fit to receive Xeomin or if there are safer alternatives to treat your facial wrinkles.

Q: Can Xeomin fix all types of facial wrinkles?

A: There are two types of facial wrinkles you can develop. Dynamic wrinkles are those caused by frequent facial muscle movement. Neurotoxins like Xeomin can address these by freezing your muscles. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, are caused by factors like aging, reduced collagen production, gravity, and prolonged UV damage. Xeomin may have an effect on static wrinkles, but these are very minimal and not the most practical solution. If you want to treat both types of wrinkles or other signs of aging, Dr. Reitman can recommend a custom treatment plan that combines Xeomin and dermal fillers or any other alternative treatments.

Q: Can I get Xeomin to treat other types of dynamic wrinkles aside from glabellar lines?

A: Xeomin is only FDA-approved for aesthetic treatments that focus on moderate to severe frown lines. If you have other dynamic wrinkles you want to address, schedule an initial consultation and Dr. Reitman can recommend other neurotoxin options available.

Q: How does Xeomin’s purification system benefit long-term treatments?

A: Whenever you get an injection, your body’s immune system triggers inflammation symptoms to fight foreign cells that could infect your body. For most patients that have had neurotoxin injections, you may feel these inflammation symptoms subside with no effect on your treatment. However, there are rare cases wherein your body’s immune system detects the botulinum toxin proteins, recognizes it as a harmful foreign cell, and creates antibodies to neutralize its effects.

If this happens, your immune system will gradually build a tolerance for botulinum toxin. This will require you to receive larger doses to get the same muscle-freezing effects. This can affect your injection’s effectiveness and cost you more as you need more neurotoxins to maintain your frozen muscles.
