About Xeomin

Wrinkles and lines in the upper face can create what is referred to as Crow's feet and other unattractive creases that lead a patient to look older than they are. For individuals who are suffering from moderate to severe wrinkles and are wishing to avoid invasive procedures, our New York, NY plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Bass, recommends Xeomin. Xeomin is comprised of similar substances as BOTOX, derived from the natural toxin botulinum type A, which is able to relax the muscles and smooth out lines in the upper face. Bass Plastic Surgery offers Xeomin injections as an alternative to BOTOX as it has no additives, making it a more suitable option for patients who may have allergic or adverse reactions to other injectables. Dr. Bass is happy to consult with each patient beforehand to ensure that they fully understand the benefits of Xeomin and our other FDA-approved wrinkle treatments. 

Best Candidates

Some of the best candidates for receiving the FDA-cleared wrinkle injection Xeomin will have:

  • Moderate lines, wrinkles, and folds in the forehead, around the eyes, and other places in the upper face
  • A desire for a nonsurgical option with no downtime
  • A desire for natural-looking results
  • Had adverse reactions to BOTOX and seek an injectable with no additives
  • Realistic expectations for their outcome

What to Expect

Xeomin is performed at one of our Bass Plastic Surgery offices in New York, NY. It is a comfortable procedure that can take as little as 30 minutes to complete. Dr. Bass will mark the treatment sites beforehand so as to deliver precise and accurate injections for desirable results. A small prick may be felt during this time, but numbing creams can be made available upon request. There is no downtime typically associated with a Xeomin injection; however, some redness, tenderness, and swelling may result for a short time following the treatment. 

Anticipated Results

The results from Xeomin typically take around 1 week to settle in and reveal smoother, tighter skin with continued improvement for up to 2 weeks. Depending on the case and how severe the wrinkles are, the injection can last for around 3 – 4 months. After the effects have become less visible, patients are invited to schedule a follow-up injection to maintain their appearance.
