What is Xeomin?

Much like Botox, Xeomin is a botulinum toxin type A and treats facial lines and wrinkles by stopping the signals from nerves to muscles. The main difference between Botox and Xeomin is that Xeomin is a purified form of the neurotoxin, which means that it doesn’t include additives and therefore patients are less likely to develop a tolerance to it.

My patients love the glow their skin has and the refreshed look they get once their wrinkles are relaxed with a neuromodulator. It makes them look rested and alive, and it turns back time and helps to give the face a more youthful appearance.

Xeomin Treatment Details

Xeomin is a quick and convenient treatment at our Shrewsbury office in the Worcester, MA area. Before the injections, your skin will be cleansed and numbed if needed. Dr. Lamoureux will then administer the product with a small needle directly into the muscles that are forming the wrinkles. Her patients are often pleasantly surprised at how easy the injections are, as Dr. Lamoureux injects with her gentlest touch. She takes into account the specific way that your muscles move to target the injections just right to achieve the best, most natural-looking results. 

After the injections, Dr. Lamoureux will schedule a two-week follow-up with you. At this follow-up appointment, she will take additional photos and reviews your progress. If any touch-up is needed, she will perform a complimentary touch-up at that time to ensure you that you’ve received the correct treatment you need.

Downtime and Results

After your Xeomin in the Worcester, MA area, you will need to remain upright and avoid touching your face for four hours. Ice can be applied to the area lightly and intermittently for the first 48 hours. We also recommend avoiding alcohol, blood-thinning medications, vigorous exercise, and flying for 48 hours.

Any other cosmetic procedures to be performed in the same area should be postponed until two weeks. Side effects are very rare, but some patients do experience eyelid drooping, muscle weakness, a headache, nausea, redness, dry eyes/dry mouth, visual impairment, a cold, discomfort at the injection sites, and/or neck pain. If you’re concerned about any of these side effects, please bring them up during your consultation. 

It may take up to two weeks to see the full results of your Xeomin injections, and these results will last up to four months.

How much does Xeomin cost?

We price our toxins by area to ensure that you’re never in the dark about pricing or worrying about how many units you may or may not get—or if you’ll have to spend more for touch-ups at your follow-up. Our area pricing includes your specific toxin, your follow-up visit, and any touch-ups that are required at that follow-up. Pricing begins at $250 per area. Customized treatments are always available with pricing determined at your free cosmetic consultation.

What are the risks involved with Xeomin?

The biggest safety concern for Xeomin is relaxing a muscle so much that the muscle feels overly heavy. Through her assessment of your anatomy, Dr. Lamoureux tries to avoid this in formulating your treatment plan. And while she understands that no one likes to bruise after injections, this always a risk. Dr. Lamoureux has a hand-held ultrasound device that helps her to better visualize vasculature under the skin, and she will often use this tool to help mitigate bruising.

What other treatments go well with Xeomin?

After your Xeomin results are settled, a variety of additional procedures can be done to enhance your appearance such as a fractional resurfacing laser or radiofrequency-enhanced microneedling to work on fine lines, pore size, and skin texture. For those hoping to achieve results for their fine lines with little-to-no discomfort or downtime, a radiofrequency protocol could be planned. Some patients who may want to work on broken blood vessels or unwanted pigment could have IPL or PIQO-4 treatments done. Or, some may be looking to enhance exfoliation or give the skin a great glow. For those, facial treatments such as dermaplaning, an oxygenated facial, or a light-grade chemical peel can be done.
