How does Xeomin work?

Your facial expressions may include constant squinting, which will eventually lead to a deep crease between your brows – frown lines. As the skin ages, it loses some of its natural flexibility, and these lines can become deeply-etched, leaving you looking older, upset, or angry. Xeomin smooths these lines by limiting the motion of the muscles causing the deep creases, creating a younger, more open, refreshed facial appearance.

What are the benefits of Xeomin, a BOTOX alternative?

  • FDA-approved as safe for use in smoothing frown lines
  • No additives
  • Reduced risk of rare allergic reactions

Is Xeomin right for me?

Many people consider Xeomin to be superior to BOTOX, as the product is in a purer form. It contains no additives, which can lead to the development of antibodies which may, over time, can lead to a resistance and reduced results with injections of BOTOX or Dysport. If you have consistently used BOTOX and have noticed that your results are less than they were in the past, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin.

Why choose Rashid Putman for Xeomin injections?

You are a unique individual in every way, including your skin type. The first step in an anti-aging treatment, whether Xeomin, BOTOX, Dysport, dermal fillers or other treatment, is a full evaluation of your skin condition.

We are committed to achieving a result that appears refreshed, rejuvenated – and natural, above all. It requires skill, technique, and knowledge to use modern injectables correctly. Never take chances with injectable products – you will be living with the results, good or bad, for months. At Rashid Putman, you can trust us to perform your Xeomin injections carefully, correctly, and in the right quantity.

Xeomin: anti-aging treatment for a younger look.

At Rashid Putman, we offer a wide range of anti-aging treatments, including Xeomin. Our approach to a smoothing injectable is highly-professional. As board-certified plastic surgeons, our understanding of facial muscular structure is extensive.

When injecting Xeomin, we take a conservative approach, as the goal is to create a smoother, younger, refreshed appearance that appears completely natural, never frozen or overdone.

Do Xeomin injections hurt?

Injections with Xeomin take only about ten to fifteen minutes to perform, with a very tiny needle. Prior to your injections, a numbing cream can be applied to reduce the sensation of the injections, which feel only like a slight pinch. Let us know if you are sensitive to needles or injections, and we will take steps to ensure greater comfort for you.
