Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an injection similar to BOTOX that is used to temporarily improve dynamic wrinkles. Over time, frequent facial expressions, like smiling and frowning, create permanent lines. Xeomin relaxes the muscle contractions of the face so these dynamic facial lines are softened for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Rafi Bidros, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, uses Xeomin in patients to improve moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (also known as glabellar lines), crow’s feet on the outer edges of the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines.

"Dr. Bidros and his staff were very friendly and professional from the start. They all treated me with utmost respect and gave me their honest opinions while I was going through my planning for my procedure. When I was doing my research on finding the right surgeon for me, I saw great reviews and pictures of his work. When I went in for my consultation, I saw albums of his many travels to perform procedures for children with cleft palates etc. which melted my heart and showed me that Dr. Bidros is a selfless man that cares for others and does this line of work for all the right reasons. I literally had no pain or bruising after my surgery and my results are phenomenal! Healing time was also minimal! Dr. Bidros is very talented and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and will go to him for any future procedures! Thank you Dr. Bidros & staff!"- J.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017

"I agree with a previous review, being referred to Dr. Bidros and his staff was a true blessing. I absolutely love Dr. Bidros, Mandy, Jackie and Connie. I was referred to him by my breast surgeon. He and his staff are so caring, kind, educational and compassionate. My personal experience was one of breast cancer reconstruction. I have been exceptionally pleased. When asked about breast cancer; I say the best thing that came out of a really horrible, frightening situation, are the highly skilled and talented surgeons and people that I have met along the way. He and his girls are at the top of that list. I am very grateful and extremely blessed to have been directed to his office and highly recommend him."- M.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017
A few drops of Xeomin are injected with a small needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. When Xeomin is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve signals, causing the muscle to weaken. The wrinkles and fine lines in the skin above these muscles will relax and become smooth.
Initially there may be a slight discomfort, but this discomfort fades. After the treatment, some patients experience headaches, dry mouth, and other side effects, but these are usually temporary. You should contact Dr. Bidros if your side effects last more than a few days or if you think you are having an allergic reaction. Results from a Xeomin treatment will be seen within 7 days of the injection and lasts up to 3-5 months in most patients.

How Long Do Treatments Last?
The effects of Xeomin usually last three to five months, at which time an additional injection maybe needed. Xeomin Treatments should not be performed more often than every 3 months. Dr. Bidros will talk to each patient about when to schedule their next appointment during their consultation.
Xeomin Vs. Other Relaxers?
Xeomin is a Botulinum Toxin Type A. Xeomin, unlike other neurotoxins like BOTOX and Dysport, does not contain additives, meaning you are less likely to build up antibodies to the injection.
