Although you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without worrying about the lasting effects in earlier years, you might be realizing that the facial lines and wrinkles caused by these expressions are now no longer disappearing after your face relaxes. These lines are called dynamic wrinkles and are caused by the overuse of the facial muscles that makes them stay contracted, crafting etched lines in the skin. Xeomin® is an injectable wrinkle releaser that, much like BOTOX®, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with purified botulinum toxin type A so these dynamic wrinkles appear smoother and softer. With Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz in Beverly Hills, CA, we provide several aesthetic and dermatology procedures like Xeomin® wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz for more information about Xeomin®.

Xeomin® can help to decrease the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as forehead lines, Crow's feet, smile and laugh lines, or frown lines. The best candidates for Xeomin® are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and are not allergic to other botulinum products, like BOTOX®. Speak with Dr. Schwartz during your consult about your current medications, aesthetic goals, and medical history so he can personalize a Xeomin® treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin® injections typically take around 30 minutes start to finish and can be completed in our procedure room after your consult. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be cleaned before Xeomin® is meticulously injected with a specialized needle. The procedure is fast and does not generally cause great discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary, but is available upon request.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will be able to leave our facility upon the completion of your Xeomin® injections to return to your daily activities, however heavy activities should be skipped until the following day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite recovery and results. In the days after a Xeomin® treatment, you may experience swelling, bruising, and redness of the treatment areas, but these symptoms are common and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many patients will see marked improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin® treatment lasting about three months. Touch-ups at Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz can be arranged to optimize your results.
SMOOTH AND RELAXED
Aging comes with a few exciting gifts including grace and wisdom, but it sometimes brings along some undesired changes like facial lines and wrinkles.
