XEOMIN treatments produce the same beautiful outcome as Botox, and results last just as long. Choose XEOMIN (Zee-Oh-Min) to erase the lines between & above your brows, lift the brows, reduce Crow’s feet, and more. Being a smaller, more refined protein, XEOMIN is considered to be more pure than the original Botox. XEOMIN is actually very similar to Botox in many respects. It is a botulinum toxin type A and is used in the same dosage amounts as the better known brand. What makes it slightly different is that it is more pure than in that it doesn’t contain any additional additives. What this means is that it is less likely to cause any adverse effects such as allergic reactions. Another major benefit is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to this pure-form injectable because there are fewer ingredients in the solution.
Cosmetic Laser MD was among the first 100 Aesthetic Medical Practices in the US to receive Xeomin® for cosmetic use beginning November 2011. XEOMIN, a recent alternative to BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport®, developed by Merz Aesthetics, is one of the latest treatments for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction on the market today. Designed to reduce the appearance of frown lines and control excessive underarm sweating for patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis, XEOMIN® is now being offered by Dr. Tanne to all our patients who are looking for a more youthful, vibrant complexion.
Unlike BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport, XEOMIN has a low protein count, which can be beneficial to patients who may have an allergic reaction to those dermal injections or who may have developed antibodies to other treatments. XEOMIN can offer the same great results as BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport. Through a quick, in-office procedure, you can enhance your appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines during your lunch hour.
Instructions Before Treatment
Avoid alcoholic beverages and anti–inflammatory medications, especially aspirin, before treatment. Schedule a Xeomin appointment at least two weeks prior to any special events to allow time to heal.
Instructions After Treatment
Treat any mild discomfort with Tylenol, and expect temporary swelling. Do not massage the treated areas because it may move the Xeomin around and create a different effect. It is generally recommended to remain upright for four hours after injections and avoid aerobic activity for a few hours.
