The lines and wrinkles around our mouth, forehead, and eyebrows can show the laughter and memories collected over the years—and that is certainly a beautiful thing! But seeing these permanent lines every time we look in the mirror can also impair our confidence, especially if they draw attention away from our features.

Xeomin Injections in Chicago

A mixture of artistry and mastery is required to inject Xeomin and get sophisticated results. At Impressions Face + Body, we have the know-how to transform your face in a completely natural way while still letting you express emotion and display your feelings like normal.

What Is Xeomin?

Like Botox, this injection paralyzes wrinkles, blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle. As a result, the targeted muscle cannot contract. Xeomin offers yet another option for achieving a smoother, fresher, and younger appearance without undergoing surgery. Under the expert care of leading Illinois Facial Plastic Surgeon Steven H. Dayan, you can expect natural, effortless results.

Xeomin is considered the “Naked” neurotoxin because it does not use “complexing proteins” unlike its competitors. When a foreign substance enters the body, the body can resist the substance and react by releasing antibodies. The absence of additives lessens the possibility of an adverse reaction from a patient. In all other regards, Xeomin is quite comparable to Botox. It is administered in the same manner, uses a similar dosage and offers all of the same benefits of relieving fine lines and wrinkles.

What to Expect for Your Xeomin Injection

We understand that you may be nervous, especially if it’s your first time having injectables, so we’ll thoroughly cover everything you need to know—plus encourage you to share your feedback and ask questions through the whole process.

Your Xeomin Consultation

As with everyone who gets a procedure at Impressions Face + Body, you’ll first undergo a consultation. This is important as it gives us a glimpse into your thoughts surrounding your facial aesthetic goals and any concerns you may have. Your specialist will evaluate your medical history, carry out a close examination of your face, and together, come up with a plan that you’re happy with.

How to Prepare for Your Xeomin

About 3-5 days before treatment, you should avoid using “strong” topical products like retinoids and glycolic acids, waxing and threading your face, and even taking certain medications like anti-inflammatories. This gives your skin enough room to calm down before we inject Xeomin and reduces the risk of excessive bleeding during the procedure.

During Your Xeomin Procedure

It takes a relatively short time to administer Xeomin injections, and you can expect the procedure to be no longer than 30-45 minutes. Your specialist will take a small and thin needle and carefully inject it into the targeted muscles. Because the needle is thin, there’s little to no pain.

Xeomin Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

There’s likely to be minor swelling, bruising, or even light spotting of blood at the injection site post-procedure. This should subside after a few hours. Remember to keep your head elevated for 3-5 hours, and avoid touching the area or undergoing elaborate skincare routines for 1-3 days. The full results of Xeomin can be seen up to 2 weeks post-procedure.
