Xeomin® in Cleveland, OH
Harmych Facial Plastic Surgery specializes in Xeomin® treatments, as well as Botox® and Dysport®. Learn more by reading below about the subtle differences between these wrinkle treatments.
What Is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxin A) is similar to both BOTOX® and Dysport®. However, Xeomin® is a more purified version, said to isolate only the active protein which causes temporary muscle weakening. The typical duration of effect is approximately 3 months, but may last longer in some patients.
When Can I Expect to Results After Xeomin®?
Similar to Dysport®, Xeomin® treatments generally take effect 3-4 days after treatment, sooner than BOTOX®. Patients can expect to see the most improvement at 30 days.
What Is the Recovery Period After Xeomin®?
Most patients report minimal discomfort or pain and pain relievers are generally not required. Redness at the injection site is common and usually resolves within a few hours. If present, mild swelling and bruising may last a few and can be treated with cold compresses. Makeup and other cosmetic products may be used immediately to conceal any redness or minor bruising. Most patients return to their occupational and social activities immediately. Exercise may be resumed 24 hours following injection of Xeomin®.
