Xeomin

Mocasa Wellness Center offers Xeomin as a minimally-invasive injectable solution for moderate-to-severe glabellar lines, aka frown lines, between the eyebrows. If you want to reduce frown lines, prevent them from appearing, or continue your treatment after developing a tolerance to Botox, please contact our medical spa in Miami, FL.

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive injectable treatment for the vertical lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines, frown lines, or angry elevens. This treatment relaxes the overused muscles in the glabellar region, thereby softening your facial appearance. Xeomin makes you look younger and more pleasant.

What Does Xeomin Treat?

  • Moderate to severe glabellar lines, also known as frown lines, between the eyebrows
  • Other expression lines and dynamic wrinkles on the face (off-label)

How Does Xeomin Work?

Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is composed of botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin protein that blocks communications between nerve endings and the associated muscles. Frown lines appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to communicate emotions, such as frowning. Xeomin blocks the transmission of signals between nerve endings and the muscles in the glabellar region, thereby relaxing the muscles and softening the frown lines.

Xeomin vs. Botox

Xeomin is often called “naked tox” because it doesn’t contain accessory proteins, unlike Botox and Dysport. Without protein additives, Xeomin prevents your body from developing a tolerance to the primary ingredient, botulinum toxin type A. If you use Botox repeatedly, you may eventually develop a tolerance, and it may stop working. However, you won’t develop a tolerance to Xeomin.

Your Xeomin Treatment

What happens during the consultation?

Your Xeomin treatment will start with a private consultation. Our cosmetic providers examine your facial features, discuss your goals, and review your medical history. They curate a personalized Xeomin treatment plan, selecting the appropriate dosage to ensure natural results.

What is the treatment like?

The Xeomin provider marks the targeted injection points on your face, usually in an arch around the eyebrows. A numbing gel is applied to ensure comfort, following which the doctor injects Xeomin into the strategically chosen facial tissues. The treatment concludes within 15 minutes.

When will the results appear?

The Xeomin results start appearing in 2 to 3 days, with continued improvements for a week. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, the same as all other neuromodulators. You can extend the results with maintenance treatments without the risk of developing a tolerance.

Is there any downtime or recovery period?

Xeomin doesn’t involve downtime. You might experience mild side effects, such as irritation, redness, and discomfort around the treatment sites, but you can continue working. However, you should avoid vigorous activities for 24 hours.
