While you may have smiled, frowned, laughed, and made other expressions without any lasting effects when you were young, you may now be noticing that the facial lines created by these expressions are remaining even after your face relaxes. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles and they are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, creating an etched line in the overlying skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer treatment that, similar to BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the treated facial muscle with a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A so your dynamic wrinkles look softer and smoother. At Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL, we offer many cosmetic and medical dermatology services including Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxer treatments. Schedule a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee to learn more about Xeomin.

Xeomin can help if you want to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, like frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines. Xeomin is best if you are in good general health, not pregnant, and have not had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products (BOTOX or Dysport). Talk to Dr. Lee during your consultation about your medical history, current medications, and your aesthetic goals so he can customize your Xeomin treatment plan for your best results.
Xeomin treatments usually take about 30 minutes and can be performed in one of our procedure rooms after your consultation. The areas of the face being treated will be cleaned and sterilized before Xeomin is carefully injected with a fine gauge needle. The treatment is quick and most patients experience mild or no discomfort, so local anesthesia is not required but can be requested during your consultation. Pressure and cold compresses will be applied to the treatment site to stop any minor bleeding before you leave.
What to Expect
You can leave our office immediately after your Xeomin treatment to resume your normal activities, but exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for the rest of the day. You may want to sleep with your head elevated and use cold compresses periodically to speed healing and results. Following a Xeomin injection, you may have some redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites, but this should heal on its own and can be easily concealed with makeup. Most patients notice visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their Xeomin injection that should last up to three months. Repeat treatments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can be scheduled to sustain your results.
