Xeomin®

 

Xeomin® Chicago

Noninvasive treatments continue to increase as patients want shorter downtime and faster recovery. For reduction and prevention of wrinkles and fine lines, Xeomin® is a product that can do this safely and works similar to Botox®. Xeomin® is a highly purified form of the neurotoxin that has undergone a process to remove accessory proteins. It is a FDA-approved injectable substance derived from bacteria and is most commonly used to treat wrinkles between the eyebrows or the “11’s”, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles around the corners of the eye or crow’s feet. Like Botox®, Xeomin® can be used in other areas of the face and neck, however, be sure to be evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon or other highly skilled injector. Xeomin® injections are well-known to give the face a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Xeomin

Am I a Candidate for Xeomin®?

The face and specifically the eyes are typically the first parts of our body to show signs of aging, often in the form of frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, or forehead furrows. Wrinkles in the face can give you the appearance of being tired and appearing older than our age. If any of these symptoms are familiar to you, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin® injections.

Xeomin® is frequently offered as an adjunct to other aesthetic procedures, such as laser treatments or dermal fillers. When performed together, the combination can not only reduce or eliminate wrinkles, but help to prevent new ones from forming.

What to Expect from Your Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, you will speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will review your aesthetic goals with you and perform a facial aesthetic evaluation to see if you are a good candidate for Xeomin®. Be prepared to discuss your medical history, any medications you might be taking, known allergies, and previous surgeries.

How are Xeomin® Injections Administered?

Although Xeomin® injections might seem like a very simple procedure, it is always important to have an expert board-certified plastic surgeon administer your injections. There are numerous muscles and vital structures in your face, and an in depth understanding of facial anatomy is important to successfully inject the face without complications.

Your plastic surgeon will determine the optimal injection sites based on your goals, and administer a number of injections depending on the desired outcome.

Xeomin® works by blocking the nerve signals to the injected muscles. As a result, the muscle is unable to contract, which in turn diminishes facial lines and wrinkles. Xeomin® is administered in small amounts through a thin needle. There is minimal pain involved, if any, and the procedure usually takes only a few minutes to complete.

Recovery after Xeomin® Injections

There is no recovery time after Xeomin® is administered; patients may resume their normal level of activity immediately. There may be a small amount of swelling at the injection sites, which usually resolves quickly. You should not, however, rub the treated areas after injections because the Xeomin® may relocate to other parts of the face.

The results of Xeomin® injections are not typically apparent right away. It may take five to seven days to see the full effect of treatment, and results typically last three to four months. Many patients schedule regular Xeomin® sessions to extend the effects of their treatment.

Potential Risks Associated with Xeomin® Injections

If administered by a board certified plastic surgeon, Xeomin® can be injected safely and with minimal risks. However, there are potential risks that can be associated with any procedure. The potential risks of Xeomin® injections may include:

  • Redness, bruising, or swelling at injection sites
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Temporary facial weakness

It is a common misconception that Xeomin® is harmful and can cause botulism. To date, there has never been a verified case of Xeomin® causing botulism or the symptoms thereof when administered by a board-certified plastic surgeon. There have been botched procedures caused by non-board certified plastic surgeons, which is why it is exceedingly important to only receive Xeomin® injections from an expert plastic surgeon that specializes in facial procedures.

What Does Xeomin® Cost?

It is difficult to give an average cost of Xeomin® injections due to several variables, such as your location, the expertise of the plastic surgeon, and the number of injections required to reach your aesthetic goals can all affect the cost of Xeomin® treatment. Be sure to discuss all costs associated with your treatment during your consultation.

SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION

If you would like to reduce wrinkles, reduce the signs of aging and have a more youthful appearance, schedule a consultation with the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago. You will speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will discuss your specific aesthetic goals and determine if Xeomin® is right for you.

3 month follow-up on this patient who wanted improvement in the projection of her chin and definition of the jawline. The patient has retrogenia or a small chin and underwent #chinaugmentation with a #genioplasty. In the pre-operative photos, you can see the chin is short and recessed and therefore I moved the chin forward and down. In the post-operative photos you can see improvement in the projection of the chin, a more defined jawline and neck, and a more balanced lower 1/3 of the face. This case highlights the advantages of a genioplasty versus a chin implant, a chin implant cannot lengthen and advance the chin to the same extent that a genioplasty can. Posted with permission.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

Happy for this patient who underwent full facial rejuvenation surgery, which included a brow lift, upper/lower blepharoplasty, facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. How much younger does he look now? Posted with permission.

One year follow-up on a #BBL or Brazilian butt lift. As you can see from the post-operative photos, the fat that is transferred stays and is permanent. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.

Challenging #breastaugmentation case where the patient had asymmetries of the breasts in terms of size, shape, and position on the chest. The patient underwent a breast augmentation with #gelimplants with a larger size in the left breast to balance the size difference. The left breast fold was also lowered to match the fold level of the right. Posted with permission.
