Xeomin is an anti-wrinkle injectable treatment that fights aging. Think of it as a wrinkle relaxer, similar to Botox. At DuPage Plastic Surgery in Naperville, highly accomplished plastic surgeon Dr. John Bull can place Xeomin into specific areas of your face. The result? A smoother, more youthful appearance. Xeomin can also improve your self-esteem and dramatically reduce fine lines.
How Does it Work?
Xeomin works by relaxing the muscles that you use to make facial expressions. This simple treatment smoothes visible wrinkles on the surface of your skin in order to create a more younger-looking complexion. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, you can usually see the positive effects of Xeomin in just five days. Some patients, though, notice an improvement in forehead lines even sooner.
Dr. John Bull can place Xeomin in your crow’s feet — these are the lines that surround your eyes — forehead lines and worry lines between your eyebrows. He can also customize a procedure based on your particular needs. “Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened,” says Xeomin on their website.
Does Xeomin hurt?
Many people are worried about the pain associated with cosmetic procedures. However, Dr. John Bull uses the safest injection techniques in order to reduce discomfort. You might experience no pain at all during and after this treatment.
Xeomin injections only take between 10 to 20 minutes, and you can even return to regular activities straight after the procedure. “During treatment, your doctor will inject Xeomin into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows,” says Xeomin. “No anesthesia is required; however, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.”

What is the Difference Between Xeomin and Botox?
Xeomin contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A. Some people have developed antibodies to Botox, but you are less likely to become resistant to Xeomin, according to the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine.
