What is Xeomin®?
A Xeomin® treatment can smooth lines between your eyebrows as well as eliminate forehead fine lines and wrinkles giving your features a more youthful appearance. This is achieved by injecting botulinum toxin type A into the targeted area, temporarily paralyzing or “freezing” specific muscles. Xeomin® is a safe and effective muscle relaxer that is used by millions of people in Canada and around the world every year. Unlike many surgical procedures used to get results, Xeomin® is minimally invasive and does not require any incisions or skin removal to achieve the desired results.
How Does Xeomin Injections Work?
Xeomin® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein. It is manufactured under strict quality control standards and then injected into a hyperactive muscle as a neuromodulator. It will block the nerve impulses from reaching that muscle without affecting the sensory nerves. So, the target muscle relaxes, smoothing out the wrinkles caused by repeated contractions.
By relieving hyperactivity, Xeomin® gives the face a relaxed, refreshed appearance. The procedure is so simple and quick that patients often do it on their lunch hour. More than two million women and men in North America have used Xeomin® to eliminate tension that misrepresents them.
A tiny amount of Xeomin® Cosmetic is injected, very precisely, into the muscles being treated. Discomfort is minimal, and no sedation or anaesthetic is required. You can resume normal activities immediately. Some patients experience a slight temporary redness at the injection site, but this can be covered with make-up. The effects of Xeomin® Cosmetic usually last three to four months. After several treatments, the effects of Xeomin® Cosmetic may begin to last longer.

Dr. John O. Lee always recommends a conservative dose to create a natural, relaxed and alert appearance. By discussing your personal concerns and goals, he determines the right dose and injection technique for you. The treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the frown line at the injection site, so the other elements of facial expression remain active. It also has no effect on the sensory nerves, so you will have normal feeling in the treated area.
