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.

"Five Stars - Dr. Bidros is a wonderful doctor and humanitarian and it was a joy and an honor to have him as my doctor. He did my surgery after I had gone through chemo for breast cancer and I couldn't be more pleased! As far as I am concerned he is the best! He cares and understands what you are going through. And his staff is superb! They are a pleasure to talk to and I just love rhem! They are all wonderful but especially Jackie and Mandy. I interacted with them the most and even though I was going through cancer, they made the visits enjoyable. My favorite doctor's office to visit! Please consider using this doctor if you need the services he provides. You won't be sorry."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 11, 2018

"I had the most wonderful experience with Dr.Bidros. He and his entire staff are so helpful. Complete bed side manners. Highly knowledgeable and professional. From the surgery to recovery he is super caring. Called to check on me post op. I am blown away by the results. He did exactly what I was expecting. When I first went for the consultation I felt like he guided me step by step on how everything will be done. He answered my most silly questions and concerns. He is very attentive. I had this strong comfort and assurance that he knows what he is saying and doing on his patients. I highly recommend him."- S.B. / Google / Mar 11, 2018

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.
