What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a neuromodulator; which refers to injections of botulinum toxin (Xeomin®, Botox, or Dysport) in the cosmetic aesthetics industry. It works by simply blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing their movement beneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
Neuromodulators have become so popular in North America, due to their effectiveness and proven safety track record, that there are now millions of injections performed each year.
Treatment areas include but are not limited to; crow’s feet or wrinkles around the eyes and upper cheekbones caused by squinting or smiling, horizontal forehead lines which develop when repeatedly raising the eyebrows, glabellar lines between the eyebrows (also referred to as number 11 lines) that are caused by frowning, and the underarms (to reduce excessive sweating).

Day of Treatment
You may have a numbing cream applied prior to treatment; although, there is usually little to no discomfort.
Our Q Esthetics injection nurse will inject Xeomin® into specified areas.
Even though sometimes immediate, full results may take up to one week.
We may ask you to return for a follow-up assessment after 2 weeks, and will discuss this during your consultation.
Before leaving, we will provide you with a post-treatment care guideline. You may feel some discomfort, but this should subside quite quickly. You may apply an ice pack to help reduce and prevent any bruising.
Try to exercise treated muscles 1-2 hours after your treatment. You can shower after your treatment, but avoid strenuous activity, facials and saunas for at least 4 hours. Do not lie down for at least 4 hours post-treatment, to avoid pressure to treated areas.
