WHAT IS XEOMIN® AESTHETIC?
XEOMIN AESTHETIC (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (Glabellar Lines) in adults. XEOMIN AESTHETIC contains Botulinum Toxin Type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
HOW DOES XEOMIN AESTHETIC WORK?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum Toxin Type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN AESTHETIC acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN AESTHETIC can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.

Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

XEOMIN AESTHETIC PROCEDURE PREP
Read Up on XEOMIN
Regardless of what procedure you’re having done, it would be best if you didn’t go into it without a wealth of knowledge about what it entails. That’s why, before you go in for your first XEOMIN appointment, you need to read up on XEOMIN®.
Read about its benefits. Would you please read about the way that it’s administered? Read about any possible dangers it might cause.
While XEOMIN is a primarily helpful substance, it’s not without its downsides. A variety of potential side effects accompany XEOMIN, including pain, redness, drooping eyelids, and headaches.
By garnering information such as this, you can ensure that you’re sure about going through the procedure.
Schedule Your Appointment at an Appropriate Time
Getting XEOMIN can sometimes be an anxiety-inducing and stressful experience.
Schedule your procedure on a fairly laid-back day that allows plenty of “downtime” both before it begins and after.
It’s a good idea for new patients to schedule their first appointments in the morning. By doing so, you don’t have to endure a long, potentially anxious wait.
Ask Your Doctor About Your Medications
The fact of the matter is that some medications don’t mix well with XEOMIN. If you’re on medications, you need to discuss them with your doctor. In some cases, you’ll be advised to stay on them; in other cases, you’ll be advised to stop taking them for the time being.
Some medications don’t go well with XEOMIN, including aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners, muscle relaxers, and allergy meds. If you’re taking these medications, you’ll need to be off of them in the days leading up to and the days following your appointment. Again, please consult your doctor before this or any procedure.
XEOMIN AESTHETIC AFTERCARE
The goal of XEOMIN Aftercare is to encourage optimal treatment results. It can also minimize the risk of bruising and spreading to other areas.
Generally, on the day you get XEOMIN, it’s a good idea to:
- Gently exercise your face
- Relax for the rest of the day
- Maintain a normal heart rate (no exercise)
- Avoid touching, rubbing, or physical pressure on the affected area
- Leave the treated area alone (no makeup, etcetera)
You can also follow the best practices for XEOMIN aftercare below.
Return to your Normal Activities
XEOMIN injections don’t require any recovery time. Therefore, you won’t have to take off work or school. You can resume your usual activities right after.
Wait 24 hours to Exercise
If exercise is part of your daily routine, wait at least 24 hours to work out. Your doctor might suggest waiting for several days.
Physical activity increases blood flow. This could potentially spread the toxin to unintended areas and reduce its effectiveness at the injection site. It also increases the risk of bruising.
Exercise also contracts your muscles, which may decrease the toxin’s effectiveness.
However, it’s safe to do facial exercises like:
- Raising your eyebrows
These movements can help the effects of XEOMIN show up sooner.
If you received a XEOMIN injection in your face, take a break from makeup for 24 hours. Applying makeup will rub the skin, potentially dispersing the toxin.
Sit up for the first 4 hours after getting XEOMIN. Bending or lying down might spread the toxin and promote bruising.
Ask your Doctor about Medications
Some medications might increase your risk of bruising. Be sure to ask your doctor when it’s safe to start retaking them.
