Xeomin Frequently Asked Questions
Even though you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without concern when you were younger, you may now be realizing that the facial wrinkles caused by these expressions are staying, even after your face has relaxed. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles and they're caused by the overuse of the facial muscles that makes them stay contracted, forming etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum so your wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Timeless Plastic Surgery in Sugar Land, TX, we provide a number of aesthetic and dermatology procedures similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with one of our seasoned plastic surgeons, Dr. Peter Chang and Dr. Ankur Mehta, for more information about Xeomin.

Xeomin Procedure Technique
Xeomin helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, and smile and laugh lines. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Speak with Dr. Chang or Dr. Mehta at your consultation about your current medications, cosmetic goals, and medical history so they can create a Xeomin treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin Smooth and Relaxed
Xeomin injections typically last around 30 minutes beginning to end and can be completed in our procedure room at the time of your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be sterilized before Xeomin is gently injected with a dermal needle. The procedure is fast and generally does not cause great discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary but available upon request. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the injection area to prevent minor bleeding prior to your returning home.
What to Expect with Xeomin®
You will be permitted to leave our facility after receiving your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, vigorous exercise should be skipped until the next day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite recovery and results. For a few days following a Xeomin treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the treatment areas, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many individuals notice obvious improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin treatment lasting approximately three months. Repeat injections at Timeless Plastic Surgery can be arranged to optimize your results.
Xeomin Ideal Candidates
How much does it cost?
The cost of your Xeomin treatment will depend on the number of injections needed to address your cosmetic concerns. Our practice accepts many forms of payment and can discuss the exact cost of your treatment during your initial consultation.
Xeomin or BOTOX?
Xeomin is different from BOTOX because it only contains one ingredient (botulinum toxin A) and does not contain any additives. You should not use Xeomin with other botulinum products. During your first visit, we can determine the best botulinum product for you and your aesthetic goals.
Yes, Xeomin is an FDA-approved product that has been used for many years. It is a safe and effective treatment for men and women with dynamic wrinkles, facial lines, and deep folds.
Medications and Xeomin?
Medications such as cold and allergy prescriptions, blood thinners, antibiotics, muscle relaxers, and sleeping aids may cause unwanted side effects with Xeomin. You should disclose a general health history and let Drs. Chang and Mehta know if you are on any medications to prevent adverse effects.
Missed a treatment?
Since Xeomin is a temporary solution for treating wrinkles, it's not harmful to miss a treatment. Generally, patients visit our office every 3 – 4 months for touch-ups.
