XEOMIN® in San Jose, CA

What is Xeomin?

XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that’s similar to BOTOX® because it relaxes the facial muscles with a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A. Although you’ve made a wide range of facial expressions throughout your youth, you may be starting to see that the lines and wrinkles caused by these expressions no longer disappear after your face relaxes. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles and they are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, creating etched lines in the skin overlying the muscles. At Sereno Santé in the San Jose, CA area, we offer several cosmetic services including XEOMIN wrinkle relaxer injections. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Maia Chakerian to learn more about XEOMIN.

Am i a candidate for Xeomin?

The best candidates for XEOMIN are in good overall health, not pregnant, and not allergic to other botulinum toxin products (including BOTOX and Dysport). XEOMIN can help if you want to improve the look of dynamic wrinkles on your face, like frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead (glabellar lines), Crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and other smile and laugh lines. XEOMIN has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as a cosmetic wrinkle treatment that can be used safely on most patients. In your initial consultation, Dr. Chakerian will ask many questions, including what allergies you may have, as well as all medications and supplements you’re currently taking. You should be honest with Dr. Chakerian to avoid unnecessary complications or side effects.

What are the benifits of Xeomin?

Like BOTOX and Dysport, XEOMIN is a purified and diluted form of botulinum toxin used to relax facial muscles, helping to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and to prevent the formation of new wrinkles. So what’s the difference? Here are some major benefits of XEOMIN:

  • No Fillers – XEOMIN is known as “naked BOTOX”. This is because XEOMIN doesn’t have any fillers, meaning that it is pure – there are no other ingredients. The extra ingredients in BOTOX and Dysport can cause some people to build up an immunity to them, lowering their effectiveness. You don’t have this problem with XEOMIN.
  • Fast Acting – XEOMIN works quickly, with results noticeable within 3 – 4 days. Full results are typically seen in about 30 days.
  • For Everyone – The purity of XEOMIN means just about anyone can use it. For example, some people with sensitivities to lactose (milk proteins) aren’t good candidates for Dysport. With XEOMIN, only women who are pregnant or nursing shouldn’t use it.
  • Prevents Wrinkles – XEOMIN helps prevent the formation of future wrinkles and can help smooth out the lines and wrinkles you already have.
  • No Side Effects – Unless you’re allergic to botulinum toxin products, you don’t have to worry about side effects with XEOMIN. It’s FDA-approved with thousands of patients treated with no reported adverse effects.
  • Range of Motion – XEOMIN doesn’t give you a “frozen” look. It only works to prevent hyperactivity in your face, meaning you’ll still be able to smile and frown without having to worry about creating more wrinkles.

How does Xeomin work?

On the day of your XEOMIN injection, you’ll be escorted to a private treatment room where you can relax on an exam table. We’ll clean the areas of your face being treated before carefully injecting XEOMIN with a tiny specialized needle. The treatment is fast and does not generally cause much discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary but is available upon request. Cold compresses will be applied to the injection sites to stop any minor bleeding before you leave. XEOMIN treatments at Sereno Santé typically take less than 30 minutes from beginning to end and can be completed in our procedure room immediately following your consultation.

What should i ecpect after a Xeomin treatment?

You can leave our facility directly after receiving your XEOMIN injections and return to your daily activities, but you should avoid vigorous exercise for the rest of the day. For a few days following a XEOMIN injection, you may experience inflammation, bruising, or swelling near the injection site(s); this is common, and any visible marks can easily be covered with makeup. You should sleep in a slightly elevated position and may want to apply cold compresses periodically to expedite the recovery process. Most patients notice visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their XEOMIN session, and these results should last about three months. Touch-ups can be scheduled with Dr. Chakerian at Sereno Santé to sustain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does XEOMIN cost?
Your cost for a XEOMIN treatment will vary based on the number of injections required to address your unique concerns. In your initial consult, you will share your aesthetic goals so your injector can create your treatment plan and then your cost can be estimated. Sereno Santé takes many forms of payment and sometimes has specials on injectable treatments like XEOMIN.
XEOMIN has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a cosmetic treatment, which can be safely used on most patients. During your initial consultation, your injector will ask several questions, for example, any allergies as well as all medications, herbs, and supplements you are currently taking. You need to be honest with your answers to avoid unnecessary complications or side effects.
XEOMIN is a wrinkle relaxer that improves dynamic wrinkles, particularly, like the frown and smile lines. A wrinkle filler improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Tell your injector about your needs/concerns and wants so they can decide if you need XEOMIN, a filler, or a combination of both.
BOTOX is a certain type of wrinkle reducer that thrives among a multitude of other effective options, including Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and Jeuveau®. These wrinkle relaxer solutions consist of type A botulinum toxin; however, they are each designed a little differently to target particular concerns.
Even though wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX, are provided to smooth fine creases by temporarily freezing your muscle movements, fillers are a different category of cosmetic injections that enhance volume in the face. Fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Chakerian can determine if you would benefit from a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to complement your BOTOX results.
