Quick Fact: Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists was among the first offices in the US to use Xeomin®. This substance, somewhat similar to BOTOX® and Dysport®, has been available for years in Europe. With its recent FDA approval in the US, only a small number of trusted physicians have gained experience using this product. SLSS was one of those chosen centers.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a new injectable treatment for wrinkles made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as BOTOX® and Dysport®. Xeomin®, meticulously developed in Germany, has been used to smooth wrinkles in Europe for more than five years. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Xeomin® for use in the United States for the treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows.
How does Xeomin® work?
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, Xeomin® temporarily immobilizes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles and frowns. Xeomin® is different from both BOTOX® and Dysport® in that Xeomin® is pure. It does not contain the associated complexing proteins seen with the other two products. It is this purity that makes this product popular for Xeomin®’s X Generation.
How long does the treatment last?
Our NYC Xeomin results begin to appear within one to five days of treatment, with day three being the average. At a minimum, like BOTOX® and Dysport®, Xeomin® results, in most patients, last up to four months. At our offices in NJ or NYC, we will consult with you regarding follow-up treatments to maintain results.
What is the cost of a Xeomin® treatment?
Due to the uniqueness of each patient, the cost of Xeomin in NJ will vary from one patient to the next. During your initial consultation, you and your dermatologist will discuss your cosmetic goals and reach an agreed conclusion regarding the best course of treatment. At this point, we will provide you with a quote. Our office accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the treatment you deserve.
