What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an injectable prescription medicine similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. It is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows. In addition to frown lines, Xeomin® is sometimes used to treat forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Unlike other neurotoxin treatments, Xeomin® is a “naked” injectable because it contains no additives or proteins. Some think that this may prevent the treated area from becoming resistant to the injectable.
How Does Xeomin® Work?
Every time you frown or squint, the muscles between your eyebrows contract. This muscle action causes your skin to crease. Over time, your skin loses elasticity, and these creases become more deep-set.
Xeomin® improves the look of lines by temporarily reducing muscle contractions in the treated area. This process won’t leave your face looking stiff or overdone. Our licensed nurse injectors will strategically administer the treatment to create a seamless, natural-looking result. We know that you want to look like yourself, but with fewer lines.
What is the difference between Xeomin® and BOTOX® Cosmetic?
The difference between the two injectables is that Xeomin® does not contain accessory proteins. It is uniquely purified to remove everything but the active therapeutic component. BOTOX® Cosmetic and other botulinum toxin type A products, on the other hand, contain proteins that are thought to be unnecessary.
Currently, no studies have been performed to determine the role accessory proteins play, if any, in the long-term safety or efficacy of these treatments. However, it is generally believed that Xeomin®, often called “naked BOTOX®,” may be less likely to cause allergic reactions or resistance to the product over time.
What are the benefits of Xeomin®?
Xeomin® offers a wide range of benefits, making it an attractive treatment for those looking to enhance their appearance. Some notable advantages of Xeomin® include that it:
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles between the eyebrows, near the ears, across the forehead, around the mouth, and in other treated areas.
- Helps prevent new wrinkles from forming by limiting muscle contractions.
- Requires little to no downtime.
- Produces noticeable results within days.
Best Candidates for Xeomin®
Xeomin® may be right for you if you are an adult looking to improve moderate to severe frown lines.

How is Xeomin® Administered?
We perform Xeomin® injections from the comfort of our modern, elegant non-surgical treatment rooms. Our licensed nurse injector will administer Xeomin® to specific muscles in your forehead to begin relaxing your frown lines. This process generally takes approximately 10-20 minutes. You may feel a pinching sensation and some tolerable discomfort.
How often can I get Xeomin® treatments?
Xeomin® injections are typically administered every three to four months for consistent results. Schedule an appointment to refresh your injections when you feel that the effects are fading.
You may find that you need fewer treatments after using wrinkle-relaxing injectables for years. That is because you may become more aware of the muscle movements that cause wrinkles, which can help you keep your face more relaxed moving forward. Your muscles could also become less strong and therefore require less maintenance.
How many Xeomin® treatments are needed for best results?
A single Xeomin® treatment session offers full results. That is a significant advantage over anti-aging skincare products that require daily application and professional rejuvenation services that require a series of appointments. Busy men and women love Xeomin® because they don’t have to clear their schedule to look their best.
Because Xeomin® offers temporary improvement, you will need to schedule ongoing treatments to enjoy the best results. These treatments are often referred to as maintenance appointments.
Results after Xeomin®
Patients love Xeomin® because it offers near-instant results. You may see an improvement in the appearance of your frown lines and other wrinkles in as few as three days. The maximum effect should be visible after one month.
When you choose this treatment, you will achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance. It is also a great way to soften harsh expressions and create a more approachable look. Xeomin® helps turn back the clock so you can look and feel your best every day!
Is Xeomin® safe?
People have been getting Xeomin® for nearly 10 years. It is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that was proven effective in two clinical trials of 547 healthy adult patients. You can trust it to help you achieve your cosmetic goals!
Xeomin® is not without potential risks and side effects. That is why you should always visit an experienced provider. Your risk of side effects increases if your treatment is not prepared or administered properly, which can happen in the hands of an unqualified injector.

- Discomfort or pain at the injection site
