what is xeomin?
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.
am i a Candidate For XEOMIN?
XEOMIN can help diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on your face, such as frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines. XEOMIN is best if you are in good general health, not pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Talk to Dr. Bidros at your consultation about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so he can create a XEOMIN treatment plan that is specific to you.

how does xeomin work?
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.
Is there a recovery time after a xeomin treatment?
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.
