What is XEOMIN?
While you may have smiled, frowned, laughed, and made other expressions without any lasting effects when you were younger, you may now be realizing that the facial lines and wrinkles created by these expressions are no longer disappearing after your face relaxes. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles, and they are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, crafting an etched line in the skin. XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, much like BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the treated facial muscle with a strain of purified botulinum so these dynamic wrinkles look softer and smoother. At Mesbahi Plastic Surgery in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., and Beverly Hills, CA, we are pleased to offer XEOMIN nonsurgical wrinkle relaxer treatments to local men and women. We invite you to call our office to set up a private consult with skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi to learn more about XEOMIN and how it can help you achieve a younger-looking appearance.

"Dr. Alex Mesbahi, I just wanted to thank you so much for what you did for me and so grateful for your services. Doctors like you make surgery a wonderful experience. You don't know how much this means to me. You're awesome."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Feb 24, 2020
"Dr. Mesbahi and Staff Are Amazing!! - Dr. Mesbahi and his entire staff are amazing. Dr. Mesbahi did not cut any corners. He made my well being and my health his first priority. My post op results are amazing!! I was a little worried about scaring because I suffer from hyperpigmentation. Only weeks after surgery I can honestly say I can barely see the incisions. I was also afraid of pain from the surgery, but there was minimal. I’m not sure how Dr. Mesbahi did it but he did. I felt like I could get right back at it the next day. He and his staff are down to earth, kind, caring, and on top of their game. From the time I went in for my consult to post surgery I have been in good hands. You will not be disappointed!!"- K. / RealSelf / Jun 02, 2020

Who is A Candidate for xeomin?
XEOMIN can help to improve the look of dynamic wrinkles on your face, such as 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. The best candidates for XEOMIN are in good overall health, not pregnant, and are not allergic to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Speak with Dr. Mesbahi during your consultation about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so he can customize your XEOMIN treatment plan for your best results.
How Are xeomin treatments Performed?
XEOMIN treatments typically take less than 20 minutes beginning to end and can be performed in one of our procedure rooms after your consult. The areas of the face receiving treatment will be cleaned and sterilized before XEOMIN is gently injected with a dermal needle. The treatment is fast and does not generally cause great discomfort so local anesthesia is not necessary but available upon request. Pressure and cold compresses will be applied to the injection area to reduce minor bleeding prior to your return home.
What Should I Expect After XEOMIN Injections?
You can leave our facility after receiving your XEOMIN treatment to resume your daily activities, but vigorous exercise should be skipped until the following day. You may want to sleep with your head elevated and apply cold compresses periodically to expedite healing and results. After a XEOMIN treatment, you may experience some redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection areas, but these symptoms are common and can be easily covered up with makeup. Most patients will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days following their XEOMIN injection that should last up to three months. Repeat injections at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery can be scheduled to sustain your results.
Should I get XEOMIN or BOTOX®?
Both BOTOX and XEOMIN are injectable wrinkle relaxers activated by botulinum toxin. The skilled injectors at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery understand the differences between wrinkle relaxers, so they can decide which will deliver your desired results. During your initial consult, your injector will ask about your concerns before deciding if XEOMIN or a different brand should be used.
Should I get XEOMIN or fillers?
XEOMIN is a wrinkle relaxer that improves dynamic facial wrinkles, especially the glabellar or frown lines between your eyebrows. A dermal filler improves static wrinkles and restores volume. Talk to your injector about your needs, concerns, and goals so they can decide if you need XEOMIN, a filler, or both.
Is XEOMIN safe?
XEOMIN has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as a cosmetic treatment, which can be used safely on most patients. During your initial consultation, your injector will ask many questions, for example, any known allergies as well as all medications, herbs, and supplements you are using. You need to be open and honest with your injector to avoid complications or side effects.
How often should I get XEOMIN injections?
Improvements from a XEOMIN treatment may be visible for up to 90 days. Every person's body will metabolize the formula at a different rate, determining how long their treatment lasts. During your initial consult, your injector will discuss how soon you should schedule appointments to touch up your results.
