 Xeomin- the new wrinkle-reducer.

According to the ASPS, over 5.5 million people were injected with Botox last year, making it the most popular cosmetic treatment in America.

Merz's Xeomin now offers patients a third choice — in addition to Botox and Dysport — for those desiring a reduction in wrinkles.

Xeomin works in the same way as the other two do, with a few differences.

The major difference is in the manufacturing process. All accessory proteins are removed from Xeomin, so potentially there could be less incidence of adverse events that could occur with these toxins. These proteins may also cause resistance building to Botox.

In our experience patients are extremely happy with Xeomin and it gives you very natural results and like Botox, it has a very low side effect profile.

When deciding between Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, we recommend scheduling a consultation to see which is right for you. Our team carefully takes into consideration the duration of action, smoothness of the expected final result, the time it takes for the treatment to take effect, the area that is treated (eyes, forehead, neck, etc.), and the overall desired final look. We understand the differences between these three products and successfully match them to individual patients.

Does Xeomin last as long as Botox?

Xeomin lasts about the same amount of time as Botox and Dysport, which is usually between 12 to 16 weeks. Most of our patients only come in about two or three times a year for botulinum toxin treatments.

When will you see the results?

Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport are not like dermal fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, and results are not seen immediately. Botulinum toxins take about two to three days to set in. The maximum effect is seen in about five to seven days.

While Xeomin has been used for over 2 years outside of the US, it is now available at the Clevens Face and Body Specialists for Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Melbourne and Orlando, Florida. For those who don't like needles, try our popular laser and skin tightening treatments. To schedule a complimentary consultation, call 321.727.3223 or visit
