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.

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.
