Relax Dynamic Wrinkles
with Purified Neurotoxin

Xeomin is a purified neurotoxin used in cosmetic dermatology to relax dynamic wrinkles. Derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Xeomin works by temporarily blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions responsible for wrinkles like crow’s feet and frown lines. This FDA-approved treatment offers a non-invasive way to achieve smoother skin. Unlike Botox and Dysport, Xeomin has no additives, reducing the risk of antibody formation.

How Xeomin Works

Xeomin, scientifically known as incobotulinumtoxinA, operates by targeting neuromuscular junctions. It contains a highly purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. When injected into specific facial muscles, Xeomin temporarily blocks these nerve signals. As a result, the treated muscles become temporarily relaxed, reducing the appearance of wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements. This gives the skin a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Xeomin FAQs

How does Xeomin differ from other neuromodulators?

Xeomin sets itself apart from other neuromodulators due to its unique formulation. Xeomin contains no complexing proteins, making it a “naked” neurotoxin. This reduces the risk of allergic reactions and may be a preferred choice for individuals with sensitivities. Additionally, since there are no additives, your body is less likely to produce antibodies for the formulation, so the effectiveness of Xeomin doesn’t diminish after repeated usage.

How does Xeomin compare in terms of safety?

Xeomin is generally considered safe when administered by a trained medical professional, like those at Malik Medical Aesthetics. It has a proven track record of effectiveness and safety for cosmetic purposes.

Is the treatment painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure. We use an extremely fine needle to ensure comfort, and our providers can also apply topical anesthesia or numbing cream for added comfort.

How long does a Xeomin treatment session take?

Typically, a Xeomin session lasts around 15 to 30 minutes, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

Are there any side effects associated with Xeomin?

Common side effects include mild redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site, but these resolve within a few days. More serious side effects are rare but can include drooping eyelids or eyebrows. Our providers take all necessary precautions to prevent serious side effects.

When can I expect to see results after a Xeomin treatment?

Patients usually notice the effects of Xeomin within a few days, with the full results becoming apparent within two weeks.

How long do the results of Xeomin last?

The results of a Xeomin treatment typically last for about three to four months. After this period, muscle activity gradually returns to normal, and wrinkles may reappear.

Can Xeomin be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

Yes, Xeomin can be combined with other cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers for a more comprehensive rejuvenation effect. Please discuss your desired outcomes with your healthcare provider to determine the best approach for your needs.
