If you’re wondering if Xeomin injections are right for you, check out our FAQ below.

What is Xeomin®?


Xeomin® is a neuromodulator, in the same category as BOTOX® and Dysport®. It is made from the botulinum toxin type A and when injected it stops muscles from contracting. Xeomin® originally received FDA approval for treatment of cervical dystonia, where the neck muscles contract involuntarily causing the head to twist, and blepharospasm, involuntary tight closure of the eyelids.

More recently, it gained approval for aesthetic treatment of lines and wrinkles on the upper third of the face: crow’s feet, the 11s, and forehead lines.

How Does Xeomin® Work?

All neuromodulators work the same way. When injected into a muscle, they block the nerve messages sent from the muscle to the brain. Because the brain doesn’t receive messages to contract the muscle, the muscle stays relaxed. Certain wrinkles form due to muscle contractions under the skin when we make expressions such as frowning, showing surprise, and the like. By stopping the muscle contractions, neuromodulators stop the wrinkle from forming.

What Can I Expect from the Xeomin® Injections?

At L.A. Vein Center, Dr. Lee and our nurse inject Xeomin® with a very tiny needle, and it is not injected to great depth. Most patients equate the feeling to that of a pinprick and do not feel the need for topical numbing prior to their session. However, if you would like that, we can provide numbing.

What is Recovery Like After Xeomin® Injections?

There is no recovery. You may have some slight redness and very minor swelling at the injection sites that lasts about a day. You need to refrain from rubbing the injection locations, however, as this can make the Xeomin® migrate to an unintended muscle. After your session, which only takes 10-15 minutes, you can get right back to work or your normal activities.

Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin® Injections?

The most ideal candidates for Xeomin® injections are patients in overall good health who are looking to eliminate the appearance of frown lines on their face and do not have allergic reactions to the toxins found in most cosmetic injections. Patients should also have a realistic expectation of achieving their cosmetic goals as Xeomin® is not meant to change the entire shape or structure of your face. It has not been found if Xeomin® will have noticeable benefits for patients under 18 years of age.

How is Xeomin different from Botox?

The difference between Xeomin® and BOTOX® is purity. Xeomin® contains nothing but the botulinum toxin type A. Some doctors refer to Xeomin as the “naked injectable” because of this. BOTOX® has some added surface proteins in addition to the toxin. Some people can have a reaction to these proteins. In those people, Xeomin® may not cause a reaction.

How Long Before I See Results with Xeomin®?

Xeomin® doesn’t provide instant results. It takes from 3-4 days for the botulinum toxin to block the nerve messages and relax the injected muscle.

How Long Will My Results Last with Xeomin®?

Your metabolism can affect the duration of your results, but for most people Xeomin® erases wrinkles for about four months. At some point, your body will absorb the now-inert Xeomin® and the muscle will begin to contract again, which we allow the wrinkles to return. Another Xeomin® session will maintain your results.
