Xeomin in Draper, Utah, at La Belle Vie

If you know about Botox, then you are already familiar with Xeomin. Xeomin is a type of neurotoxin made from the bacteria that causes botulism. The term neurotoxin sounds strange and even a bit scary. But these treatments are very effective and have been used safely for many years.

Like Botox, Xeomin works by blocking nerve activity and causing muscles to freeze where it is injected. As a result, the skin is smoothed out, giving the face a more youthful appearance. These neurotoxins work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles below your wrinkles and fine lines, halting the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles to form and become more pronounced. By weakening the muscles, wrinkles and fine lines disappear.

Where Can Xeomin Be Injected?

Xeomin is very similar to Botox in that it is primarily used on different areas of the face, depending on your particular concerns. However, Xeomin is most commonly injected in a few specific areas. For example, Xeomin is used most often for frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. It can also be used for non-invasive upper lip augmentation. However, your doctor will consult with you before your appointment to find out your individual concerns and how Xeomin will work best for them.


What’s the Difference Between Xeomin and Botox or Jeuveau?

There isn’t a big difference between neurotoxins like Xeomin, Botox, Jeuveau, or Dysport. All of these products are derived from the same neurotoxin, which is botulinum type A. For the most part, these products are made by different manufacturers, so there are slight differences in their precise formulas.

Our experts at La Belle Vie have extensive knowledge of each of these products and what makes them unique. So we can discuss with you personally which one will help you meet your goals the best. From there, we will craft a unique treatment plan just for you!


How Much Does Xeomin Cost?

Right now, we are running a special deal on Xeomin in our office for the month of January. If you buy 30 units of Xeomin, you’ll get 10 for free and also get an additional $50 off. The average cost for a Xeomin treatment is $425.

However, it’s difficult to even nail down an average price per treatment due to a variety of factors. For example, your total cost will vary greatly depending on the area you’re having treated, how many units you need, the severity of the issue, and more. Since Xeomin is priced by unit, your specific treatment plan will determine your cost.

How Long Does Xeomin Last?

Like other neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, Xeomin treatments are not permanent, so they will not eliminate your wrinkles forever. While Xeomin is a great solution, it does not permanently freeze your muscles, and wrinkles will eventually return. In general, you can expect to see results from Xeomin around two days after your treatment, and the full results will peak around two weeks after your appointment. Typically, patients see their facial smoothing lasting around 3-4 months, and some patients can go up to 5-6 months without a touch-up appointment.


What Kind of Recovery is Needed for Xeomin Treatments?

There really is no recovery or downtime needed when getting neurotoxin injections. You might experience some mild swelling or bruising following your appointment, but this is just due to the nature of getting injections in your face. This bruising and swelling should resolve within a few hours after your appointment.

You should avoid rubbing or touching your face during this time to prevent irritation. But you don’t need to avoid the sun. And you can use your regular skin products. Simply relax and enjoy your amazing results!


What Should I Expect During My Xeomin Appointment?

Getting Xeomin injections is a very simple procedure that our clinicians have lots of experience with. When you arrive at your appointment, you will be met by your doctor, who will prepare your treatment areas using a facial cleanser. Additionally, a topical anesthetic may be applied. Then, using an extremely fine needle, your Xeomin units are administered using small, quick injections into the facial tissue.

The entire process will only take a few minutes, and you will be free to drive yourself home after the treatment is finished!

What Are the Risks of Xeomin?

The risks of Xeomin are basically identical to the risks you incur using any other neurotoxin like Botox or Dysport. For example, you do run the risk that your deeper wrinkles will not be entirely smoothed using this product, particularly if they have been caused by excessive sun exposure or sun damage. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you are not advised to undergo a Xeomin procedure.

Additionally, if you are taking certain medications or have particular neurological disorders, you should consult your primary care physician before booking an appointment for Xeomin. If you are unsure about whether Xeomin is for you, give us a call. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
