Xeomin

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA, also called botulinum toxin type A), is an injectable that is used to help treat wrinkles and fine lines between eyebrows and frown lines. This filler is quite similar to other cosmetic injectables such a Botox and Dysport.

What is it?

Xeomin is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscle which causes a temporary reduction in muscle activity. Therefore, muscles are unable to move as freely helping to reduce wrinkles. It is FDA approved to treat this condition after it was proven to be safe and effective. Worldwide, more than 84,000 people have been treated with Xeomin injections, and the number is only increasing.

Other conditions Xeomin treats?

Here at WellMedica we only use this injectable cosmetically. However, it is also known to treat cervical dystonia (severe spasms in the neck), muscle spasms in the arm, as well as certain eye muscle conditions caused by nerve disorders.

Similarities and Differences between Xeomin and Botox?

Here at WellMedica we offer both Xeomin and Botox to our patients. A lot of people compare these two injectables, and many people do not know the differences between the two. These fillers are similar because they both work the same way cosmetically. They paralyze the muscles and smooth wrinkles. They also share the same active ingredient – botulinum toxin A, and results last around the same time (3 to 6 months). The main difference is that Botox has an accompanying protein with it, whereas Xeomin does not. Therefore, it may mean that there is less risk of developing antibodies as compared to Botox.

How much does it cost?

The cost will likely be comparable to Botox if not slightly lower. The amount of Xeomin each patient will need depends on each patient’s condition, and area they would like to be treated. In order to get an accurate estimate of how much injections will cost we encourage you to come in for consultation with Dr. Dima who creates customized treatment plans for all of her patients.

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

– Bonnie P.

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *
