What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin is an injectable cosmetic treatment used to create smoother, more youthful-looking facial skin by reducing facial lines and wrinkles. Xeomin is very similar to the well-known treatment Botox, but it’s manufactured through a precise process that isolates the active ingredient.

How Does Xeomin Work?

Like Botox, Xeomin contains the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. When this neurotoxin is injected into the facial skin, it prevents the muscles from contracting. This causes the facial skin to become smoother, which greatly reduces or eliminates lines and wrinkles.

Unlike Botox, Xeomin is what’s known as a “naked” neurotoxin. This means that its only ingredient is botulinum toxin type A, whereas Botox also contains various proteins. As a result, patients are less likely to develop a resistance to Xeomin, which allows it to have more powerful effects.

What Are The Benefits of Xeomin?

If you’re unhappy with your facial lines and wrinkles, Xeomin in Los Gatos & San Mateo can provide you with some or all of these benefits:

  • Reduced facial lines and wrinkles
  • Smoother, firmer, more youthful skin
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • Fast results
  • May provide more powerful results than Botox

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Your first step toward undergoing Xeomin treatment will be a quick consultation with one of our providers at SVIA Medspa. During this meeting, you can ask any questions you have about the procedure and tell the doctor about your aesthetic goals. Your provider will need information about your medical history, allergies, and medications.

Typically, Xeomin treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure, and it can be done right at our medical spa. To begin, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to prevent any pain. Next, your injection specialist will use a very fine needle to inject Xeomin into the targeted area. In total, this should take between 15 and 30 minutes, and you’ll be able to leave shortly after it’s finished.

Am I a Candidate for Xeomin?

Adults who would like to achieve smooth, vibrant skin may be good candidates for Xeomin treatment. You could be an ideal candidate if you meet the following requirements:

  • Have a desire to eliminate facial wrinkles and lines
  • Be in good physical health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no neuromuscular disorders
  • Be free of allergies to any of Xeomin’s ingredients

Are There Any Side Effects?

Some patients have experienced minor side effects from Xeomin treatment. The most common of these symptoms include:

  • Injection site pain, swelling, or bruising
  • Infection
  • Headache
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Dry or watery eyes

Although it’s extremely rare, there are cases in which Xeomin’s neurotoxin can be transferred to other areas of the body, resulting in a serious condition called botulism. You should seek medical care immediately if you encounter any of these symptoms:

  • Trouble swallowing, speaking, or breathing
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Vision problems
