About Xeomin

Although you may have smiled, frowned, laughed, and made other expressions without worrying about the lasting effects in earlier years, you may now notice that facial lines and wrinkles created by these expressions no longer disappear after your face relaxes. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles, and these are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, crafting an etched line in the overlying skin. Much like BOTOX, Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that temporarily relaxes the treated facial muscle with purified botulinum toxin type A so these dynamic wrinkles look softer and smoother. At GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX, we offer several cosmetic and medical dermatology services, such as Xeomin wrinkle relaxing treatments. Schedule a consultation with our expert staff to learn more about Xeomin.

Ideal Candidates

Xeomin can help to decrease the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, such as forehead lines, Crow's feet, smile and laugh lines, or frown lines. The best candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, not pregnant, and are not allergic to other botulinum products, like BOTOX. Talk to our team during your consultation about your medical history, current medications, and your cosmetic goals so we can personalize your Xeomin treatment plan for your best results.

Procedure Technique

Xeomin treatments usually take less than 30 minutes from start to finish and can be performed in one of our procedure rooms after your consult. The areas of the face being treated will be cleaned before Xeomin is meticulously injected with a specialized needle. The treatment is quick and does not generally cause great discomfort so local anesthesia is not required but can be requested during your consultation. Pressure and cold compresses will be applied to the injection sites to reduce minor bleeding prior to your leaving.

What to Expect

You will be able to leave our office upon the completion of your Xeomin treatment to resume your normal activities, but heavy activities should be avoided until the following day. You may want to sleep with your head elevated and use cold compresses periodically to speed healing and results. For a few days after a Xeomin injection, you may experience swelling, bruising, and redness of the injection sites, but these symptoms are common and can be concealed with makeup. Many patients will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their Xeomin injection that should last about three months. Touch-ups at GLO Laser & Med Spa can be scheduled to sustain your results.

Smooth and Relaxed

Age brings some wonderful gifts, such as wisdom and experience, but it can also come with unwanted changes, like facial lines and wrinkles. Relax and even out dynamic wrinkles on your face with Xeomin treatments at GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX.
