There’s nothing selfish about self-care. With Xeomin® , you can reverse and diminish the signs of aging without the unwanted proteins contained in other commonly used injectables.
Like other injectables, Xeomin® temporarily reduces a muscle’s ability to contract. In turn, this reduction relaxes and softens fine lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning, and squinting.
A Xeomin® treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes depending on your individual needs. A topical anesthetic can also be used to help numb the injection sites. A fine needle is then used to inject the solution under the skin and into the muscles below. Any pain or discomfort is extremely minimal.
After a Xeomin® treatment, you can expect to see visible results within 24-48 hours with subtle improvement over a period of 14 days. With minimal recovery or downtime, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately. However, it’s important not to use any makeup for at least 6 hours after injection.
Swelling can be reduced by staying upright for the first few hours after treatment. You should also refrain from any strenuous exercise for at least 48 hours.
Keep in mind that while some patients don’t experience any bruising or soreness after a Xeomin® injections, others, however, experience a mild degree of these side effects for a few days. It’s also important not to take any aspirin or other anti-inflammatory or blood thinning medications a week prior to your treatment. Please consult with your normal healthcare provider prior to treatment about discontinuing any prescribed medications.
Localized swelling, redness, post-injection site pain, and mild bruising are some of the most common side effects of Xeomin®. In order to achieve your individual goals, our cosmetic professionals may recommend a combination of Xeomin® injections with other injectables like Juvederm.
