What Is XEOMIN?
Although you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without any lasting effects when you were younger, you may now be noticing that the facial lines and wrinkles caused by these expressions are no longer disappearing after your face relaxes. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles, and they are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, crafting etched lines in the overlying skin. XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer treatment that, similar to BOTOX®, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A so your dynamic wrinkles look smoother and softer. At Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic in Anchorage, AK, we offer many cosmetic and dermatology procedures, including XEOMIN nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Schedule a consult with our team for more information about XEOMIN.

Am I a candidate for XEOMIN?
XEOMIN can help if you want to decrease the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines.

How does XEOMIN work?
XEOMIN can help if you want to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, like forehead lines, Crow's feet, smile and laugh lines, or frown lines. XEOMIN treatments at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic usually take under 30 minutes and can be performed in one of our procedure rooms after your consultation. The areas of the face being treated will be cleaned and sterilized before XEOMIN is meticulously injected with a fine-gauge needle. The procedure is fast, and most patients experience mild or no discomfort. You can leave our office upon the completion of your XEOMIN treatment to resume your normal activities. For a few days following a XEOMIN treatment, you may have some swelling, bruising, and redness near the injection sites, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily concealed with makeup. Many individuals will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days after their XEOMIN treatment, lasting up to three months.
How much does XEOMIN cost?
Costs for a XEOMIN treatment will depend on the amount required to address your unique concerns. In your consult, you will share your cosmetic goals so your injector can create your treatment plan and then estimate your cost. Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic takes many forms of payment and frequently has specials on injectable treatments like XEOMIN.
Should I get XEOMIN or BOTOX?
BOTOX and XEOMIN are injectable wrinkle relaxers made with botulinum toxin. The experienced injectors at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic know the subtle differences between XEOMIN and other wrinkle treatments, so they can determine which will deliver the desired results for each patient. During your initial consultation, your injector will listen to your concerns before helping you decide if XEOMIN or BOTOX is right for your goals.
Should I get XEOMIN or fillers?
XEOMIN is a wrinkle relaxer that improves the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles, especially the glabellar or frown lines between your eyebrows. A wrinkle filler addresses static wrinkles and restores volume. Talk to your injector about your needs/concerns and wants so they can determine if you need XEOMIN, a filler, or both.
Is XEOMIN safe?
XEOMIN has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration as a cosmetic treatment and can be safely used on most adults. During your initial consultation, your injector will ask a few questions, like any allergies plus prescription medications, herbs, and supplements you are taking. You should be honest to avoid unnecessary side effects or complications.
How often should I get XEOMIN injections?
Results from a XEOMIN treatment may last up to 90 days. Every person will metabolize the formula at a different rate, which determines how long their treatment lasts. During your initial consult, your injector will discuss how soon you should get your next XEOMIN injection.
