What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin, a purer form of botulinum toxin, offers potential benefits due to its reduced risk of causing irritation or allergic reactions. Made exclusively of the botulinum toxin, Xeomin is a neuromodulator used to reduce muscle activity. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix, Dr. Jeffers, Dannielli RN, and Kent RN, our master-certified injectors, skillfully administer Xeomin injections. Xeomin treatment offered at our med spa effectively targets and reduces the visibility of forehead lines, frown lines, and wrinkles. By inhibiting the muscle contractions caused by acetylcholine, Xeomin helps achieve a smoother appearance. Experience the numerous benefits of Xeomin treatment by visiting our med spa today.

How Does Xeomin Work?

Xeomin functions by temporarily inhibiting muscle contractions. Initially approved by the FDA in August 2010, Xeomin was indicated for the treatment of blepharospasm (eyelid spasms) and cervical dystonia (severe contractions of the neck muscles). Subsequently, the FDA granted approval for Xeomin to be utilized, like Botox, for the treatment of glabellar lines—those lines that develop between the eyebrows.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Xeomin Injections?

While Xeomin has received FDA approval solely for cosmetic use on glabellar lines, commonly referred to as frown lines, it is off-label and utilized for treating crow’s feet and forehead lines. Botox, on the other hand, has obtained FDA approval for all of these uses, but there is an expectation that Xeomin will be approved for those areas in due course.

The most suitable candidates for Xeomin treatment are individuals who have experienced adverse reactions to Botox due to the additional proteins present in its formula, rather than to the botulinum toxin itself. As mentioned earlier, Xeomin comprises solely of the botulinum toxin. If Botox has proven ineffective for you, it may be worth giving Xeomin a try.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Xeomin?

Xeomin, like other neuromodulators, targets “dynamic wrinkles” caused by muscle contractions rather than “static wrinkles” induced by sun damage and aging. These dynamic wrinkles primarily manifest on the upper third of the face, known as the expressive area, including worry lines, moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, laugh lines, and crow’s feet.

During a consultation with one of our licensed medical professionals, your areas of concern will be discussed, and the appropriate number of treatment units will be recommended. Each patient’s required units can vary, emphasizing the importance of a personalized consultation. The results of treatment can be observed within 10 days and typically endure for 3 to 4 months.


Is There Any Preparation For A Xeomin Session?

At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix, we proudly offer a range of neuromodulators that are perfect for those seeking convenient “lunchtime procedures.” Our skilled medical providers administer these products with precision, using a tiny needle without the need for topical numbing or deep injections. Sessions typically take only about 15 minutes, allowing you to swiftly return to your office or regular activities without any downtime. Experience the ultimate in efficiency and rejuvenation at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa Phoenix.

What Is The Recovery After Xeomin Injections?

After receiving Xeomin injections, you might experience minor redness and swelling at the injection sites, but these typically subside within a few hours. Some patients may encounter a slight headache during the initial day or so. Other than that, no specific recovery is necessary. It is crucial, however, to avoid rubbing the injection sites for 24 hours. Doing so can inadvertently cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to unintended muscles, potentially resulting in issues like a droopy eyelid.

Do I Need More Than A Single Session For Xeomin Injections?

No, these treatments are designed for a single session. Following your session, the results will endure for a period of three months.

Can I Combine Xeomin With Other Treatments?

Xeomin greatly complements a wide range of treatments at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa Phoenix, including dermal fillers and laser hair removal. It’s important to note that combining treatments targeting the upper third of the face may not be ideal, as Xeomin primarily focuses its effects there. During your consultation, our skilled medical professionals will discuss your desired combination of treatments and incorporate Xeomin accordingly. Rest assured, we’ll ensure you receive the best possible outcomes for your Xeomin session.

How Soon Will I See Results After A Xeomin Session?

Similar to Botox or Dysport, the botulinum toxin requires time to relax the injected muscles. The effects of Xeomin injections become visible in approximately four days and full results in two weeks.

How Long Will My Xeomin Results Last?

The results of Xeomin treatment can differ among patients as the rate at which the body absorbs the inactive botulinum toxin varies. Consequently, the effectiveness of Xeomin can range from three to six months. Similar to Botox, once the toxin is absorbed, the muscle is no longer blocked from receiving nerve messages and can resume contraction.

Are There Any Risks Involved With Xeomin Injections?

Xe carries similar risks and side effects as Botox and Dysport, such as minor redness and swelling at the injection sites, which typically subside within a few hours. Botox, having been administered millions of times globally, has consistently demonstrated its safety and efficacy. With Xeomin essentially sharing the same composition, with a few fewer proteins, it offers a similar profile.

The primary concern with any neuromodulator injection is the possibility of misplacement, resulting in complications like a drooping eyelid. However, our experienced injectors possess over 30 years of expertise, ensuring a deep understanding of facial anatomy and extensive familiarity with injectables, thereby substantially mitigating this risk.

What Are The Potential Side Effects Of Xeomin Treatment?

When seeking treatment from an experienced injector, the occurrence of rare and mild effects with Xeomin is possible. These effects include temporary redness, bruising, and swelling, which can be alleviated by applying ice to the area. Additionally, Xeomin may cause temporary ptosis or asymmetry of the eyebrows or eyelids. It’s important to note that these reactions are also temporary. The risk of these side effects can be minimized by ensuring the recommended dose is administered by a qualified healthcare professional. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa, our licensed medical aesthetics providers in Phoenix will thoroughly discuss the benefits and potential side effects during your consultation. Rest assured, your well-being is our priority.

How Is Xeomin Different From Botox?

Xeomin has earned the moniker “the naked injectable” due to its uncomplicated formula containing only the botulinum toxin. In contrast, Botox incorporates additional proteins alongside the botulinum toxin. While certain individuals may experience a reaction to these proteins, they may not exhibit the same response to Xeomin.
