Xeomin is mildly invasive injectable facial rejuvenation approved by the FDA for use on moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. This alternative to Botox has been used in the U.S. to reduce signs of aging on the face since 2010.
Xeomin is ideal for the treatment of:
Xeomin is derived from botulinum toxin type A, which also happens to be the same active ingredient found in Botox. Xeomin has been FDA approved for various cosmetic uses. These injectables might be the right course of treatment for you if you’re looking to treat your moderate to severe frown lines, brow wrinkles, or crow's feet. With its FDA approval, Xeomin can be used to treat the same facial wrinkles as Botox. This procedure could be the ideal treatment for patients whose results with Botox were below expectations. Xeomin works by blocking the nerve activity in the muscles, preventing wrinkle-causing movement for a more youthful appearance.
Xeomin is a great choice to refresh your face if you’re a healthy adult with forehead lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, or lines around the eyes. Xeomin injections are safe for all skin types and skin colors. If you’ve tried Botox injections in the past with disappointing results, you may see better results with Xeomin due to the minor difference in the structure of the compound.
The rejuvenation injections are administered by an Ethos Spa physician via a fine needle. Each injection is placed into each specific muscle for only a few seconds. The majority of patients are surprised to find the discomfort levels of the procedure much lower than expected.
Typical treatment sessions usually take around 15 to 20 minutes. You may return to typical daily activities, which makes Xeomin injections a convenient option. You should keep your head elevated to prevent any movement of the injectable compound to undesired areas. Avoid lying down for the first few hours following your treatment and refrain from sleeping with your face down for the first night or two.
You may notice raised bumps around the injection sites in the 30 to 60 minutes immediately following the procedure. Redness and puffiness may appear following your treatment but should dissipate within a few days. While uncommon, you may experience bruising that lasts around 7 to 10 days. To reduce the risk of bruising after your procedure, avoid aspirin products 10 days prior to your scheduled treatment.
You’ll notice smoother, younger skin about 2-3 days after your procedure. You should experience the full results around 14 days. Your face will have a noticeable youthful glow and feel smooth to the touch.
Touch-up treatments should be scheduled about every four to six months as muscle movement gradually returns. The distance between your treatments may widen over time as your muscles become more relaxed from repeat procedures.

Dr. Soni did a great job in explaining the procedure and making sure all my questions and concerns were answered. I had my first session on the first day and I was very impressed with how fast everything went and I also saw a difference in the tattoo once it began to heal. Every time I went in for a session the staff was very nice and I never had to wait a long time. Totally loved this place!
Extremely impressed with the physicians, lovely and welcoming staff...and the results!!! I have been coming here for 4 years, and highly recommend this entire team. They are meticulous in their approach, and both warm and professional. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!
Wow. Very impressed with the quality of work they do. So far I’ve been coming here for over 4 months and they are just phenomenal. I love coming here. Thanks ethos for your assistance with my tattoo removal.
