Xeomin, crafted by MERZ and obtainable through prescription, serves as an injectable solution designed to temporarily enhance facial aesthetics. This prescription injection contains botulinum toxin type A, with a particular focus on addressing moderate to severe frown lines that manifest between the eyebrows. At the Miami Primary Health Wellness and Aesthetics office, Dr. Olga Ratmansky, DNP, stands ready to assist you in evaluating whether Xeomin is the right solution for your current needs.

Xeomin Cosmetic offers individuals a means to achieve smoother skin and a natural, well-rested appearance by effectively addressing wrinkles. Over time, the facial muscles beneath the skin contract during each facial expression, giving rise to "dynamic" wrinkles like frown lines between the brows, horizontal brow furrows, crow's feet, bunny lines, and more. These "dynamic" wrinkles tend to deepen with age and often contribute to a stern and stressed appearance. Xeomin injections function by relaxing specific facial muscles, curbing their ability to contract.

Xeomin is composed of a naturally-occurring, purified protein called Botulinum Type A. Xeomin is part of a class of drugs called “neuromodulators,” which can be used to safely and temporarily relax muscles by blocking neurological signals. It is administered strategically to prevent contractions of specific muscles that cause creases, wrinkles and other aesthetic issues of the face and neck. When you try to contract a muscle treated with Xeomin, the movement is greatly reduced.

Xeomin, alongside other neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, effectively addresses both dynamic and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles, including lines and creases, surface when facial muscles contract during expressions like smiling, frowning, laughing, furrowing the brow, and other facial movements. In contrast, static wrinkles, lines, and creases remain visible even when your facial muscles are at rest. Xeomin, upon taking effect following treatment, promptly diminishes or alleviates the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. As time progresses, the reduction in muscle contractions not only enhances the appearance of static wrinkles but also helps deter the formation of future ones.

Xeomin and other neuromodulators have the capacity to treat various areas on the face and neck. Commonly treated regions include the vertical lines between the eyebrows, commonly referred to as the "11" lines, and crow's feet. By applying a small amount just beneath the outer corners of the eyebrows, a subtle lift can be achieved, imparting a more open and alert look to the eyes.

Moreover, Xeomin and other neuromodulators extend their effectiveness to other facial aspects. These encompass addressing "bunny" lines located on either side of the nose, correcting downturned corners of the lips, softening small vertical "smoker's lines" above the lips, rectifying "gummy" smiles, and smoothing out a pebbled or "Peau d'orange" chin texture.

Additionally, neuromodulators like Xeomin can be employed to reshape the lower face, contributing to a more feminine appearance by refining the jawline's contours. They also prove effective in diminishing the prominence of platysmal bands, vertical neck bands that are often more noticeable in individuals with elongated necks, notably women.

One Xeomin treatment typically lasts 3-4 months, but may last as long as 6 months for some patients. The majority of our patients come in for regular treatment 3-4 times a year. There are no negative effects associated with long-term, ongoing Xeomin use. In fact, studies indicate that patients who receive Xeomin regularly may need less product over time.

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all distinct brand names of the neuromodulator Botulinum Type A. To draw a parallel, you can liken them to various interpretations of the same product, much like the distinction between Coke and Pepsi. In essence, they share more similarities than differences.

Botox, as the pioneer, was the first product to receive approval for cosmetic use. It's so widely recognized that its brand name is often used as a generic term, akin to Kleenex or Band-Aid. Botox retains its status as the most popular and frequently regarded as the benchmark in the field. Following Botox, Dysport emerged, known for its slightly broader impact area compared to Botox or Xeomin. Xeomin, the most recent FDA-approved entrant, received its regulatory nod in 2011.

In the hands of an expert at Miami Primary Health Wellness and Aesthetics office, Xeomin is a quick procedure with little associated discomfort. After discussing your goals and past treatments with Dr. Olga Ratmansky, DNP, Xeomin is injected into the treatment areas using a very small needle. This process only takes a few minutes. Patients often compare the feeling to having their eyebrows plucked.
