Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA), is a FDA Approved drug, effective in treating the glabellar lines, or the 11 between your eyes. Xeomin works similarly to Botox and Dysport, which relaxes the underlying nerves to smooth out the facial expression lines caused by muscle contraction. Xeomin is injected into the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles, disabling them and reducing their further deepening. In conjunction with Restylane® injections, JUVÉDERM®, chemical peels, and/or a forehead lift or face lift, complete facial rejuvenation is possible.
Because of Dr. Wang's unsurpassed commitment to patient care, he conducts all Xeomin consultations personally and administers the injections himself, unlike many other practices that rely on their nursing staff to provide Xeomin treatments and consultations. If you are considering Xeomin or any of the other treatments available through Wang Plastic Surgery, take a moment to read how former patients are expressing their appreciation for Dr. Wang's knowledge and care throughout the facial rejuvenation process.

What’s the difference between Xeomin®, Botox®, and Dysport®?
Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport all have the same active ingredients, Botulinum neurotoxin. The only difference in Xeomin is that it does not carry the proteins that are typical of the other products, and that it does not require refrigeration for storage.
What are the common benefits of Xeomin?
Xeomin removes wrinkles produced by facial movement, resulting in a younger looking appearance. Xeomin is especially effective for treating crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, bunny lines on the nose, and down turned corners of the mouth.
Since Xeomin does not contain protein, it claims that its advantage lies in the lessened likelihood of antibodies being formed to the proteins which – for a very limited number of patients – can render the product ineffective. (This typically is only seen in patients who have used botulinum toxin for an extended period of time.)
How are Xeomin injections performed?
Xeomin treatments do not usually require anesthesia, however the skin can be treated with a topical numbing agent and you may be given a sedative if desired. During the procedure, Dr. Wang will use very thin needles to inject very small amounts of Xeomin into the affected areas of the face or area of the body to be treated.
How long do Xeomin treatments take?
Xeomin treatments may take from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the number of injections required.
What can I expect after my Xeomin treatment?
You may experience mild bruising and swelling at the site of the injections, as well as a brief headache. You will be asked to keep your head upright and avoid rubbing the treated area. Within three to five days you will see results, but some areas may take as much as two weeks. Results of each treatment last from four to six months.
How long before I can return to normal activity?
You should be able to return to work or home immediately.
