When a patient is injected a certain number of times with Botox®, the body may become immune to it — causing its anti-aging ability to become a little less…magical. So, what are you to do when your Botox begins to lose its luster? Fortunately, there’s another option: Xeomin.
What Can You Expect with Xeomin?
Xeomin is administered through a series of injections. Before these begin, we will cleanse, prep, and numb your skin (if needed). A small, fine needle will be used to deliver the Xeomin into the muscles that are causing wrinkles to form. Treatment time is 15-30 minutes.
You will be able to go back to your normal day immediately after your Xeomin treatment, although you will need to avoid touching your face, undergoing intense activity, and lying down for 4-6 hours. Side effects are rare, but may include a droopy eyelid, weakness in the muscles, fatigue, blinking less than usual, headache, nausea, redness, visual problems, getting a cold, neck pain, discomfort at the injection sites, or dry eyes/dry mouth.
Many patients report seeing results within five days, although it may take up to 10 days to see the full effect of treatment. Results last 3-6 months.
