Xeomin Sherman Oaks

Xeomin, also called incobotulinumtoxinA, is an FDA-approved treatment for glabellar lines (the wrinkles between the eyebrows). These glabellar lines are found on the glabella, and people also call them frown lines or ’11’ lines.

Xeomin can also be used in other areas of the face off-label to relax other lines and wrinkles such as forehead lines, lift brows, up-lift corners of lips, to reduce chin dimpling, and neck bands, and reduce lip wrinkles, amongst many other uses similar to Botox (see a more comprehensive list below).

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a type of Botulinum Toxin A. It is a protein derived from Clostridium botulinum. Xeomin is also called incobotulinumtoxinA. It relaxes the muscles between the eyebrows as well as other intended muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles and reducing pain or other issues from overactive muscles.

Xeomin, like its counterparts Botox and Dysport, is a neuromodulation that blocks the connection between the nerves. It temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines. These muscles are the Procerus muscle and Corrugator Superficialis muscles.

Because Xeomin is the purest form of Botulinum Toxin A and doesn’t contain complex proteins like Botox, it has gotten the nickname “naked injectable”. This might reduce the risk of triggering hypersensitivity reactions, possibly making it less foreign than the other variants.  However, many believe that the reduced length of the protein chain in Xeomin also results in reduced longevity compared to other brands such as Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Daxxify.

Xeomin relaxes targeted muscles of the face to remove the ‘11’ lines. When placed strategically by expert injectors, the other muscles that are important for a natural appearance are spared, so that you don’t have a plastic look after the procedure. You will look younger, natural, and rejuvenated!

Using Xeomin doesn’t just treat or reverse facial lines that have etched into the skin, it also is preventive. By reducing the movement of muscles that can scrunch up the skin covering it, the skin in kept in a flat/straight shape that doesn’t fold excessively.  This prevents the formation of wrinkles. Needless to say, prevention is much easier than reversal of deep wrinkles.

Xeomin Benefits

Xeomin is gaining traction among cosmetic experts in the US. With great reviews, it is now a great alternative to Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Daxxify. Xeomin smoothes out facial wrinkle lines and makes your skin look more youthful. Below are a few reasons Xeomin may be great for you.

What Results to Expect:

  • Treats Facial Lines and Wrinkles: Xeomin is effective in treating facial lines. It relaxes the muscles under the skin in targeted areas. This smooths the wrinkles out and makes you look younger and more confident.
  • Treats many Medical Conditions: Xeomin can reduce pain from tight neck/shoulder area, muscle knots, tennis elbow, migraines, tension headaches, and TMJ.  It can also reduce sweating in the underarms, hands, feet, and hairline/face.  Other uses include the treatment of:
    • Tremors
    • Achalasia (tight esophageal sphincter)
    • Urinary stress incontinence
    • Anal fissures
    • Depression
    • Strabismus
  • Prevents More Wrinkling: Xeomin doesn’t have just curative functions. It also prevents the further wrinkling of the skin of the glabella.
  • Versatile Procedure:  Even though Xeomin is FDA-approved for treating glabellar lies, it can also treat many other conditions such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and smoker’s lines (see below for a comprehensive list of possible treatment areas.) It is versatile in application and is great for all dynamic lines, folds, and wrinkles.
  • Durable Results: The results last up to 3-4 months. 
  • Possible Reduced Tolerance: Unlike the other variants of incobotulinumtoxinA there may be a reduced risk of developing tolerance to Xeomin due to the reduced size of the proteins. Using the other ones, there are proteins that your body can notice to form antibodies. Xeomin due to its smaller protein size, some believe that it is less detectable by the body’s immune system.
  • Convenient Procedure:  The procedure is quick, lasting about 5-10 minutes. It also has minimal downtime. You can get back home a few hours post-procedure.
  • Minimal Risk: The procedure is relatively safe. It has little or no permanent risks. There is also minimal risk of an allergic reaction. This is because it does not have any complex proteins attached to it.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedure: This procedure is non-surgical.  It doesn’t require the use of general anesthesia and excludes surgical risks.

    Xeomin FAQs

    Does Xeomin have botulinum toxin?

    Yes, it does. Like its counterparts — Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Daxxify, Xeomin is a type of Botulinum toxin. It differs from the other neuromodulators currently on the market because it doesn’t contain any extra proteins. It is called the ‘naked’ injectable. This possibly makes it less likely to lead to resistance.

      Is Xeomin better than Botox?

      Different neuromodulators can have varying results on different people.  Xeomin has a smaller protein size which some argue reduces its longevity, while others state that it reduces the risk of developing resistance to it.

        What is Xeomin used for?

        Xeomin is a neuromodulator used commonly in facial rejuvenation. It is FDA-approved for smoothing out glabellar frown lines, also called ’11’ lines. It can also be used for other facial wrinkles, dynamic lines, and folds, and to reduce pain from overactive muscles.

          What is the risk of Xeomin?

          Xeomin is relatively safe. However, there are risks and side effects linked to the injection of Xeomin. Some of these risks are headaches, pain, bruising, droopy eyelids, dysphagia, breathing difficulty, muscle weakness, etc. Visit your consultant if you notice any of these symptoms post-procedure.

            How long does Xeomin last?

              Xeomin treatment results are seen between 7-10 days and last between 2-4 months. Maintaining adequate skincare, taking zinc supplements, scheduling touch-up sessions, avoiding excessive sunlight, and use of other anti-aging products can help the results last longer.
