Xeomin
San Francisco’s premiere plastic surgeons

Xeomin® is a prescription neurotoxin derived from a natural nerve blocker, botulinum toxin type A. It is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and wrinkles.

How Does Xeomin Work?

Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein highly purified from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Once the toxin is injected it acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscles from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce frown lines (glabellar lines), crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and wrinkles around the chin area.

Results

Clinically proven, Xeomin takes effect between three and seven days after treatment, and lasts 3 months on average (up to 6 months). This may vary depending on the area being treated, your skin’s metabolism, and the formula being used.

Benefits

  • Immediate, natural-looking results
  • Non-invasive; a surgery-free option to smooth lines and wrinkles
  • In-office procedure typically performed in 30 minutes or less
  • No downtime. Most patients resume normal activities post injections

Am I A Good Candidate?

Nearly everyone is a candidate for a Xeomin treatment. You are not a candidate for Xeomin if you have a history of severe allergic reaction to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in Xeomin. Please consult with your physician regarding your medical conditions and history prior to treatment.

What Should I Tell My Doctor Before Treatment?

Before receiving treatment with Xeomin you should tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including whether you have a disease that affects your muscles and nerves, have allergies to any botulinum toxin product, or have experienced any side effect from any other botulinum toxin in the past. In addition, tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

Especially tell your doctor if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last four months or in the past. Be sure your doctor knows exactly which product(s) you received and when you received them.
