Xeominin Lexington, Wellesley Hills, Peabody
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator (similar to Botox or Dysport), that softens dynamic wrinkles on the face caused by muscle contractions. The most commonly treated dynamic wrinkles are across the forehead, at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the brows (frown lines).
How Does Xeomin Work?
When expertly injected, Xeomin blocks the release of chemicals that cause muscles to contract and form wrinkles when making certain facial expressions, such as frowning. Keep in mind that this means that Xeomin will not improve the appearance of static wrinkles caused by sun damage or collagen loss commonly associated with aging. These wrinkles, such as nasolabial lines or fine lines throughout the face, can often be improved with other injectable formulas, just not Xeomin.
What Areas Can be Treated With Xeomin? And What do Treatments Feel Like?
Xeomin can be used to treat wrinkles across the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the brows. It can also be used to sharpen the jawline, correct a gummy smile, or provide lift and shape to the eyebrows.
Xeomin can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, wherever it occurs. The most common area for this treatment is the underarms, but the palms, feet, and any other area can also benefit from Xeomin.
Xeomin treatments are both quick and tolerable. Using a very fine needle, your Lexington Xeomin Injector will target the muscles that are causing the wrinkles you would like to correct with each injection site. Beyond the slight pinch of the needle, most patients find Xeomin treatments virtually painless. Results from Xeomin typically last 3 to 4 months.

Xeomin Safety And Recovery
Xeomin has an excellent safety profile, and just like Botox and Dysport, is FDA approved to smooth and diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
You may have some pinpoint bleeding or slight swelling at the injection sites immediately post-treatment. This usually resolves within minutes, and you can return to your day-to-day activities right away. Like all neuromodulator products, you should avoid laying down for 4-6 hours following injections. You should also avoid exercising, wearing hats or headbands, and massaging for the first day after treatment for the best results.
At Aspire Med Spa, we strive to provide the best Xeomin Lexington has to offer. If you have more severe or long-lasting side effects, don’t hesitate to call our office to get help right away.
You will see your full results from neurotoxin treatments within two weeks of your treatment. Some people (10%) will see no results and simply not respond to the treatment for unknown reasons. Results commonly last at least 2 to up to 6 months.
We ask patients getting Xeomin to “exercise” the muscles in which they were injected for about an hour to help the formula look as natural as possible as it takes effect. If you experience swelling, bruising, or pain in the treatment area, you may apply ice packs, arnica, or other anti-inflammatory compounds you might have.
Side Effects and Less Common Complications
Side effects associated with Xeomin injections include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, or bleeding/bruising. Less common reactions may include nausea, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, headache, excessive weakness of the treated muscles, temporary eyelid drooping, temporary brow drooping.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is xeomin as effective as Botox?
Yes, Xeomin is just as effective as Botox at reducing wrinkles in areas like eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes.
What is the difference between Botox, Jeuveau, Xeomin and Dysport?
Each of these injectables is a neuromodulator used to relax the muscles, which causes less movement and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The main difference is in the ingredient(s) added to the neurotoxin botulinum toxin A.
Can xeomin be used for crows feet?
Yes, Xeomin is very effective at smoothing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Can xeomin be used for lips?
Yes, Xeomin can improve the appearance of the lips, such as a down-turned mouth or gummy smile, without the plumping effect of fillers.
Can xeomin cause headaches?
Headaches are the most common side effect of a Xeomin treatment, but these are often mild and should only last a few hours. If the headache persists or worsens, call your doctor.
Can you mix Botox and Xeomin?
Although Botox and Xeomin should not be mixed in one injection, they can be used together in the same area. You can also switch from Botox treatments to Xeomin, but consider visiting the same doctor since they will know where previous injections have been made.
Do Xeomin injections hurt?
You will feel a small pinch from the needle used during Xeomin injections but the treatment is fast and the pain is minimal.
Does dysport last longer than xeomin?
Not necessarily - both types of injections last about 3-6 months and results vary from patient to patient.
Does xeomin contain human albumin?
Yes, Xeomin contains a small amount of the human albumin protein but it is a much smaller quantity than Botox or Dysport.
Does xeomin work faster than Botox?
Yes, the effects of Xeomin will take effect about five days after treatment whereas Botox effects will not show for 1-2 weeks.
How do you make Xeomin?
Xeomin is a purified substance made from botulinum toxin type A. Once the botulinum toxin is purified, leaving just the active neuromodulator, a small amount of human albumin and sucrose is added.
How long does it take to see results from xeomin?
Results from Xeomin will appear within 3-5 days after treatment.
How long should xeomin last?
Xeomin typically lasts 3-4 months but can last as long as 6 months for some patients.
