About Xeomin®

Xeomin® is unique. It was the first clinically proven anti-wrinkle injection uniquely purified to remove proteins unnecessary for treatment. 

Xeomin® is indicated for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adult patients. Xeomin® can help differentiate your practice.

Xeomin® is different in ways that matter to you and to your patients.

*Studies have not been performed to determine whether the presence or absence of complexing/unnecessary proteins has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

The difference is only the molecular consistency of the product and the storage and preparation. Different bacteria make them and one comes with a carrier molecule and the other one doesn’t.

The dosage of units and reconstitution is the same for both. Hence, for the treatment of glabella lines, the minimum indicated number of units is 20 units. As with any product, some patient variability exists and some patients  may require higher dosage.

The difference is the preparation and technique just like with Botox. Xeomin doesn’t have a carrier molecule and Dysport® does. The difference in only on the molecular level with exactly the same effect and duration of the result.
Yes, dosage of Dysport® and Xeomin® is different bit that’s only the information needed for the provider and not the patient.
Botox works by relaxing muscle activity, which creates wrinkles and/or early lines on the forehead, between your eyebrows or around the eyes.

Xeomin ® can be injected in the same areas just like Botox®  and Dysport®. Some of these areas are FDA approved while others are not. That’s why it’s important to trust an expert when it comes to facial injections like Dr.Avaliani.

Common areas of treatments include:

  • Horizontal lines on forehead
  • Lines between eyebrows aka 11 lines (Glabella)
  • Lines around eyes (Lateral Canthal lines)
  • Bunny lines (wrinkles on your nose)
  • Smoker’s lines- vertical lines on the upper lip
  • Wide jaw-slimming down the jaw line
  • Neck bands- Platysma neck cords
  • Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating
  • Gummy smile
  • Migraine headache
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Liquid eye lift
  • Brow lift

There are no FDA approved studies for Xeomin injection for adults less that 18 years of age. During the clinical trials the maximum age of the patients was 65 years old.

Adults from 18 to 65 and older are all candidates for the treatment. There is no right age to start treatment, but Xeomin, Botox and Dysport are all being recognized as a preventative measurement to starting injections early to avoid the lines from getting deeper and becoming more prominent.

If you have pre-existing neuromuscular disorders such as (Myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton Syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) should not be injected. If you also have pre existing swallowing or breathing problems, you should be advised against Xeomin treatment. Patients with evidence of active infection or inflammation at the site of potential treatment area, should not be injected until inflammation or infection completely resolves. Dr. Avaliani will perform a detailed history intake and physical exam to determine if Xeomin is the right treatment for you.

The best answer to these questions is: If you are bothered by the wrinkle lines on your face and want them removed, then you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Avaliani to determine if Xeomin will work for you.

The treatment with Xeomin usually takes 5-15 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated and is a very quick and safe “lunch time procedure”.
There is absolutely no downtime and virtually all people return to their regular duties immediately.
Dr. Avaliani adheres strictly to the rules and regulations of the manufacturer to ensure that the product will have longevity as advertised. Typical duration of Xeomin® treatment depends on the area and the dose injected. For the most commonly injected areas on the face, the average duration is 3-4 months.
