Frequently Asked Questions
Although XEOMIN® is an alternative injectable treatment, there are a lot of questions that new patients have about the injections. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions. If would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us today. We are always happy to answer questions and can help you schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
How long do results last?
Results can vary from person to person, but on average XEOMIN® Injections can provide facial rejuvenation results that last three to four months. After the effects begin to fade, follow-up treatment can maintain results. In fact, some patients have noticed results tend to last longer after each repeat visit.
When will I see results?
Optimal results from facial rejuvenation with XEOMIN® should be seen within approximately seven days after treatment.
What is the treatment like?
Treatment is typically fairly brief – approximately ten minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. XEOMIN®, which is a prescription medication (incobotulinumtoxinA) is carefully injected using a fine needle. According to your treatment plan, injections will be made in desired areas to temporarily prevent underlying facial muscles in the target areas from contracting (it is this muscle contraction that creates the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines).
Will the injections hurt?
Our team always does their best to put your comfort first. The needle used for the injections is very fine, and we can use a topical numbing agent prior to the procedure to help minimize any pain at the injection sites.
Do the injections cause bruising?
During the week before you have XEOMIN® Injections, we recommend avoiding any blood thinners, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, as well as vitamin E supplements or fish oil. These medications can all lead to increased bruising and bleeding at the injection sites.
How long is the recovery period?
There is usually no recovery period needed after XEOMIN® injections. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment has been completed. There can be redness, swelling or bruising on occasion, but these side effects are minimal and should fade quickly.

Wrinkles and etched in lines occur when the skin begins to lose essential substances due to the natural aging process. One of those substances is hyaluronic acid. Belotero Balance is a smooth gel that, once introduced into the skin, integrates into the tissue and replenishes it. As a result, etched-in lines and creases are minimized and the appearance of the skin improves. Belotero Balance can treat:
Deeper crease around the mouth (nasolabial folds)
Vertical lip lines
Thin smile lines
RADIESSE® is an FDA-approved dermal filler to help restore lost volume and smooth wrinkles. This filler adds volume to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles. It can lift and add volume to your skin to smooth wrinkles and help you look younger. RADIESSE® is a unique dermal filler because of its composition. The water-based gel features calcium-based microspheres, which your body ultimately absorbs. These microspheres encourage your body’s natural collagen production, leaving natural-looking results with skin looking fuller and tighter. The goal is to leave behind only your body’s naturally produced collagen.
Some common treatment areas with RADIESSE® are: Jaw lines, Chin wrinkles, Marionette lines, Nasolabial folds, Pre-jowl folds, and Smile lines.
Tell your doctor about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins and herbal supplements. Talk to your doctor before you take any new medicines after you receive XEOMIN or RADIESSE.
