xeomin at Bella Excellence Med Spa in Tampa

Xeomin® is a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, so you get only what’s needed for smoothing wrinkles.

Xeomin® is a neuromodulator used to smooth the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and superficial creases. Neuromodulators are a remarkable treatment for addressing the concerns related to aging. It has an active ingredient called “Botulinum Toxin Type A.

How Does Xeomin Work?

Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions, so frown lines are softened.

Xeomin® works by temporarily blocking and restricting muscle contractions by inhibiting the signals from nerves to muscles. When the muscles don’t contract, the lines and wrinkles of that area get diminished temporarily. However, when the effect of Xeomin wears off, the muscles contract the lines, or wrinkles start appearing again.

What is The Difference Between Botox & Xeomin? `

The main difference between Botox and Xeomin lies in the activity of their protein. Botox has an accompanied inactive protein with it. However, Xeomin doesn’t have such additives as it is a purified form of neurotoxin and doesn’t require any accessory foreign proteins.

Which Facial Areas Are Best Treated with Xeomin?

While Xeomin can be used in most areas of the face and neck to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The best place to get Xeomin is the frown lines between eyebrows. These lines have seen the best result from Xeomin. However, it can be used to treat many areas, such as:

  • The Upper Eyebrows
  • The Forehead
  • The Nose
  • The Upper Eyelids
  • The Orbicularis Orbis Muscle
  • The Back of the Neck

Why Do People Opt for Xeomin Over Botox?

No Additives:

As discussed earlier, Xeomin has fewer additives than other neuromodulators, resulting in fewer risks and complications.

No Need to Refrigerate:

While other neuromodulators need an optimum temperature and rigorous temperature control for preservation before the treatment, Xeomin doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

Long Lasting Results:

Xeomin offers long-lasting results. Therefore, people opt for Xeomin rather than Botox due to its long-lasting effects. Furthermore, the time for results onset is shorter than that of Botox.

No Downtime:

Xeomin is a non-invasive treatment. Therefore, no downtime is associated with it, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, very mild bruising and swelling are common after-effects of Xeomin treatment.

How Is Xeomin Treatment Done?

First, your face is cleaned with a mild cleanser, and a topical numbing cream may be applied to your face to increase comfort. However, this treatment is relatively painless, so most patients don’t feel the need for numbing cream. Next, Xeomin is injected directly into your skin using a fine needle. This treatment is simple and merely takes 15-20 minutes.

How Long Does the Effect of Xeomin Last?

The longevity of results varies from person to person. However, the effects of Xeomin last for about 3 to 4 months. After that, you will need additional treatment to maintain results.

How Many Sessions of Xeomin Are Required to Get RESULTS?

This depends on your aesthetic goals, age, genetics, and condition of the desired area. However, on average, people observe noticeable and desired results solely after one treatment.

What Are the Pre-treatment Instructions of Xeomin?

You should stop taking blood thinners, supplements, and medications that affect the blood clotting process. Furthermore, it would be best to avoid garlic and Vitamin E, C & K supplements one week before the treatment. Taking an over-the-counter, Arnica supplement is also recommended if you bruise easily.

What Are the POST-TREATMENT Instructions for Xeomin?

  • Your provider might ask you to do a few facial exercises to stimulate the binding of toxins only to the localized area. You ought to follow the instructions carefully.
  • Don’t do facial massage, peel, or facials for 3-4 hours after the treatment since it can increase blood circulation in that area.
  • Don’t do straining, rigorous exercise, and heavy lifting for 5 hours after the treatment. This can cause sweating and disrupt blood flow toward the treated facial area.
  • You may face mild bruising and swelling in the treated area. However, they go away by themselves without any specific measures.

Will Xeomin Injectables Be Effective For Me If Other Treatments Aren’t?

Yes, if other treatments have stopped working for you or have never worked, Xeomin can be effective for you, provided that any neuromodulator has worked for you in the past.

Remember that neurotoxins lose their efficiency with time since our immune system gradually starts recognizing the binding proteins used in the toxins.


Xeomin is one of the four neuromodulators used to diminish the signs of aging. The mode of action, procedure, the active ingredient, and results of all neuromodulators are relatively the same. The expert injectors at Bella Excellence can discuss options for your desired outcome.
