John R. Barbour, MD, FACS, is a triple board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Barbour may recommend Xeomin® as a minimally-invasive anti-aging treatment for men and women in the Washington, DC area, including Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria and surrounding communities in Virginia.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an anti-aging injectable treatment that may work on wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as frown lines between the eyes and wrinkles on the forehead. Xeomin® works by relaxing the muscles you use when you squint and frown.
How is Xeomin® Different Than Botox®?
Xeomin® and Botox® treat similar signs of aging, but Xeomin® may offer some advantages to patients. Xeomin® may not have as strong an effect on the facial muscles, and patients may feel facial expressions are easier with the product. Xeomin® is also considered a more “pure” form of neuromodulators as it does not contain certain proteins used to make Botox®.
What are the Benefits of Xeomin® Treatments?
- No downtime
- May be an alternative to Botox®
- Long-lasting results
What Should I Expect from a Xeomin® Treatment?
Xeomin® is administered through a series of injections in the brow and forehead area, including the space between the eyebrows. You may feel a slight prick as the needle is inserted into the skin and muscle. The active ingredient in Xeomin® starts to work very quickly. The muscles relax, and you may see a softening of the wrinkles.
Swelling, tenderness, bruising and pinpoint bleeding may occur at each injection site. This is due to the injections and should clear within a day or two.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The anti-aging benefits of Xeomin® treatments may last four to six months, but individual results vary.
How Much Do Xeomin® Treatments Cost?
Our pricing for Xeomin® is based upon an individualized treatment plan developed during your consultation. After you meet with Dr. Barbour, we can discuss the cost of treatment, as well as our financing options.
