Get your Xeomin injections in NYC done by World Renowned Dermatologist, Debra Jaliman, MD
Xeomin is the first FDA-approved anti-wrinkle treatment for facial rejuvenation that has only the active botulinum toxin (neurotoxin), it doesn't have any added protein. It is a major competitor to Botox, which was the first FDA-approved neurotoxin in the U.S. Botox was originally used for blepharospasm, and then eventually many physicians began using it for cosmetic purposes and anti-aging. When patients have expressive faces and a lot of muscle activity, they are often good candidates for treatment with neuromodulators like Xeomin injections. These products are safe and effective, as they decrease facial expression, cause a decrease in muscle contractions, and subsequently improve fine lines and wrinkles.
Make an appointment with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman at her Upper East Side, Manhattan office for a consultation to discuss your treatment options, concerns, risks, and the benefits of these treatments on your appearance. The doctor will design an individual treatment plan for you, answer any questions, and give you additional information. Dr Jaliman has over 25 years of experience as an injector using neurotoxins such as Botox in her practice in New York City.

What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is incobotulinumtoxinA, a type of botulinum toxin. It is a very pure formulation with no additives such as proteins. The process of manufacturing this product is unique and only the active ingredient that relaxes facial muscles is placed in the bottle for doctors to use. Those are the main differences between this product and other neurotoxins on the market in the world. Clinical trials proved its effectiveness and the reviews have been positive. It blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle, preventing the development of a muscle contraction. When the muscle doesn't contract, then the overlying skin gets smoother and there is a reduction in existing wrinkles and the formation of new wrinkles. It is an alternative to Botox.
What are the possible side effects and reactions from Xeomin?
This injectable neurotoxin can sometimes cause bruising as a needle is used. Swelling and redness at the injection sites can also occur. It is considered a no-downtime procedure as most people do not react, and you would never know they had anything done. If done by an inexperienced injector, the brows can be uneven. This can be corrected. Occasionally there is drooping of the eyelid. This is temporary and can be corrected with eye drops. If the nerves that control the muscles of the upper eyelid get affected by the Xeomin, this can occur.
