What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a purified, FDA-approved neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin type A. It is an outpatient procedure that works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles, causing them to relax and thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles and/or treating various medical conditions. Xeomin is a nonsurgical approach, allowing for aesthetic enhancement without the need for a plastic surgeon or more invasive procedures like facial fat grafting.

Unlike other botulinum toxin products available, Xeomin contains no accessory proteins, making it a “naked” neurotoxin. Though often compared to injectable fillers, Xeomin does not contain volumizing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, rather relying on natural processes to create muscle weakness, ultimately creating a natural and youthful appearance.

It has been hypothesized that the purity of Xeomin the likelihood of developing resistance or antibodies to this treatment. Despite its FDA approval, patients will always need to discuss their medical history before receiving the “naked” injectable.

Medical Applications

Beyond its aesthetic uses, Xeomin has several medical applications:

  • Xeomin can be used to prevent chronic migraines by blocking the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission.
  • Xeomin inhibits the sweat glands, managing excessive sweating, particularly in the underarms, hands, or feet.
  • Cervical dystonia, involuntary muscle contractions causing chronic neck pain, can be treated with Xeomin.
  • Involuntary twitching of the eyelid muscles can be relieved with Xeomin.
  • Xeomin is effective in treating muscle stiffness in the arms caused by conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or multiple sclerosis.

The Xeomin Procedure

The Xeomin procedure is straightforward and typically quick, often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure” because it can be done within 10-30 minutes. The preparation involves cleaning the treatment area, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort. 

With a fine needle, small amounts of Xeomin are injected into specific muscles, with the number of injections varying based on the treatment area. After the injections, patients are advised to avoid rubbing the treated area, lying down, or engaging in strenuous activity for a few hours to ensure the best results and minimize any potential side effects.

Xeomin Results and Longevity

The effects of Xeomin are not immediate. Patients will begin to notice results within three to seven days, and Xeomin will smooth wrinkles after one to two weeks. The longevity of Xeomin varies from person to person but generally lasts three to four months.

Xeomin only temporarily improves facial wrinkles and smile lines, so regular follow-up treatments are necessary to maintain the results. Over time, with consistent treatments, some patients may notice that their improved facial features last longer because the muscles gradually become accustomed to relaxing.
