Xeomin® Treatment & Injections for Effective Wrinkle Removal in Austin, Texas
Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA approved neurotoxin used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles—much like Botox® and Dysport®. Xeomin is made from a bacterium that blocks nerve activity in the facial muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. This decrease in muscle activity leads to the smoothing of lines and wrinkles.

Benefits and Results
Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good general health and want to reduce the visibility of wrinkles that have occurred naturally over time. Some patients start the injections at an earlier age to prevent wrinkles, but it’s always best for patients to discuss with a doctor first to determine if the treatment is ideal for their specific goals.
You will start seeing results three to ten days after treatment and will have your best results after 30 days. Results typically last three months or longer.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin is injected into the target area to reduce muscle contraction by blocking the signal that is sent by the nerves to the muscle. The temporary reduction in movement allows the skin to relax which leads to smoother and less visible wrinkles. Xeomin treatment sessions typically take 10 to 20 minutes and there is no downtime.
Like Botox, the effects of Xeomin occur within seven days of the treatment and typically last about three to four months depending on your skin type and a number of other factors to be discussed with a doctor.
You may experience bruising or transient headaches. Minor temporary droop of one eyelid occurs in approximately two percent of patients. This usually lasts two to three weeks. Pregnant women and individuals with a significant neurologic disease should not receive Xeomin® treatments.
