Though you may have been able to frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without concern when you were younger, you may now be noticing that the facial wrinkles caused by these expressions are staying even after your face has relaxed. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles, and they're caused by the overuse of the facial muscles. This overuse makes them stay contracted, forming etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum so your wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA, we provide a number of aesthetic and dermatological procedures similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult for more information about Xeomin.

I look and feel great and wi tell anyone that if this is something you've wanted to do, do it here!!"- R.C. / Yelp / Mar 21, 2019

Xeomin helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, and Crow's feet. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Speak with your injector at your consultation about your medical history, current medications, and your aesthetic goals so a Xeomin treatment plan can be created that is specific to you.
Xeomin injection procedures typically last under 30 minutes beginning to end and can be completed in our procedure room at the end of your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be sterilized before Xeomin is gently injected with a dermal needle. The procedure is fast and generally does not cause great discomfort. Local anesthesia is not necessary but is available upon request. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the treatment site to prevent minor bleeding prior to your return home.
What to Expect
You will be permitted to leave our surgical center after receiving your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, vigorous exercise should be skipped until the next day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite recovery and results. Following a Xeomin treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the treatment areas, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many individuals notice visible improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin treatment, and they last approximately three months. Repeat injections at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center can be arranged to optimize 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. Ocean Plastic Surgery Center 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, and 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 Ocean Plastic Surgery Center for touch-ups.
