Individuals in Seattle who wish to combat forehead wrinkles and lines may consider Xeomin to achieve smooth results. Similar in nature to BOTOX, Xeomin is a medication that is injected into the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. It is made from Botulinum, a type A bacterium that creates botulism, which blocks nerve activity in the muscles and causes a temporary reduction in muscle activity. During the consultation, Dr. Jonov will assess the facial wrinkles and determine if BOTOX should be considered, or if Xeomin may be a better option for the patient.

"Amazing group of professionals! I found myself waiting till the last minute to get my wrinkle reducing Xeomin before a trip for a important formal event. I was referred to Dr Jonov by a very close friend that has been going there for years. I called the gallery not really expecting that they could get me in as quickly as they did but I got Kristi on the phone and she worked her squeezing me in same day which was a life saver!! I truly enjoyed the entire experience from being greeted at the front with warm tea and meeting the staff and never feeling pressured into more then what I was there for. I'll be back and will be referring all my friends and family."- D.P. / Yelp / Jan 16, 2015

"I first saw Renette for the second UltraShape treatment. She is great! Then I saw Dr. Jonov. We talked Seahawks, then got down to business!!! I had Xeomin injected into my forehead & around my eyes (crows feet). I'm happy with the results. I'll be back for my third session with Renette at the end of the month & will see Dr. J again for a lip filler treatment. I can't leave out Belinda, who is the first & last person I see.

What to Expect@headingTag>
Xeomin is usually a 10 to 20 minute procedure. The doctor will inject Xeomin directly into the patient’s facial muscles. Injections may be administered to more than one area at a time, depending on the condition being treated. Patients may be asked to use eye drops, special contact lenses or other devices to protect their eyes during the procedure. No anesthesia is required, but the doctor can use a topical anesthesia or cold pack to prevent or reduce any patient discomfort.
After the Procedure@headingTag>
Patients may not begin to see results or improvements until 7 days after receiving Xeomin injections. Some patients may experience side effects including neck pain, dry eyes, headache, eyelid swelling or bruising, and pain or redness at the injection site. Results typically last 3 months. Patients should not receive Xeomin injections within 3 months of the last Xeomin treatment.
The expected cost of Xeomin varies, depending on the area and condition being treated. Patients can expect to pay between $250 and $1,500 per Xeomin treatment session.

Xeomin or BOTOX?@headingTag>
Xeomin is different from BOTOX because it does not contain any additives, which lessens the chances of patients building antibodies against the medication. Patients should not use Xeomin with other botulinum products. During a consultation, the cosmetic surgeon can determine the best botulinum product for each patient.
Yes, Xeomin is an FDA-approved product. Based on two US clinical trials, Xeomin is a safe and effective treatment for adults with cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, facial lines, wrinkles and folds. The US is the 20th country to approve the prescription medication.
Medications and Xeomin?@headingTag>
Medications, such as cold and allergy medication, muscle relaxers, sleeping aids and urinary medications can increase the chance of Xeomin’s side effects. Patients should notify the cosmetic surgeon if they are currently using any blood thinners or antibiotics.
Missed a Treatment?@headingTag>
Patients should not worry if they missed a Xeomin treatment. Xeomin injections have a temporary effect, and are given months apart. Missing a dose is not harmful to patients.
