Even though you may have smiled, frowned, laughed, and made other expressions without concern when you were younger, you may now be noticing that the facial wrinkles created by these expressions are staying, even after your face has relaxed. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles and they're caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, forming an etched line in the overlying skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the treated facial muscle with a strain of purified botulinum so your wrinkles look softer and smoother. At Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa in Delray Beach, FL, we offer a number of cosmetic and medical dermatology services similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments.

"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017

Xeomin helps to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, including frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, and smile and laugh lines. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, not pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. During your skin assessment and consultation, we will ask you about your medical history, current medications, and your cosmetic goals so that a custom Xeomin treatment plan can be created for your best results.
Xeomin treatments usually take less than 30 minutes beginning to end and can be performed in one of our procedure rooms at the conclusion of your consultation. The areas of the face being treated will be sterilized before Xeomin is gently injected with a dermal needle. The treatment is quick and generally does not cause discomfort so local anesthesia is not required but can be requested during your consultation. Pressure and cold compresses will be applied to the injection sites to prevent minor bleeding, swelling, or bleeding (in addition to possible bruising) prior to you returning home.
What to Expect
You will be permitted to leave our office after receiving your Xeomin treatment to resume your normal activities, but vigorous exercise should be avoided until the next day. You may want to sleep with your head elevated and use cold compresses periodically to speed healing and results. For a few days after a Xeomin injection, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the injection sites, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily concealed with makeup. Many individuals will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their Xeomin injection that should last approximately three months. Repeat injections at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa can be scheduled to sustain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Xeomin cost?
The cost of your Xeomin treatment will depend on the number of injections needed to address your unique concerns. During your consultation, you will share your goals so your treatment plan can be created and then your cost can be estimated. Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa accepts many forms of payment and frequently has specials on injectable treatments like Xeomin.
Should I get Xeomin or BOTOX?
Xeomin is different from BOTOX and other injectable wrinkle relaxers because it only contains one ingredient (botulinum toxin A) and does not contain any additives, which lessens the chances of building antibodies against the medication. You should not use Xeomin with other botulinum products. During your consultation, your injector can determine the best injectable wrinkle relaxer for you and your cosmetic goals.
Is Xeomin FDA approved?
Yes, Xeomin is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic uses. Based on two U.S. clinical trials, Xeomin is a safe and effective treatment for adults with cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. It has been widely used for decades and is a very popular treatment worldwide.
Who cannot get Xeomin?
Medications such as cold and allergy medication, muscle relaxers, sleeping aids, and urinary medications can increase the chance of Xeomin’s side effects. You should let your injector know during your first visit if you are currently using any blood thinners or antibiotics.
How do I maintain my results from Xeomin?
Xeomin injections have a temporary effect and are given months apart. During your consultation, be sure to ask your injector about how often you should visit Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa for touch-ups.
