Aging is a natural part of life, but unfortunately, it brings with it visible side effects, like fine lines, facial wrinkles, and sagging skin. At Torrey Pines Dermatology, we offer Xeomin® injectable treatments for patients who are interested in improving the appearance of dynamic wrinkles- wrinkles that have formed as a result of consistent muscle contractions due to repeated facial expressions. This minimally-invasive treatment can be completed in a quick, 10 to 20-minute injection session that has little to no downtime associated with it.

What is Xeomin®?
This injectable treatment is comprised of a form of botulinum toxin that can be used to soften the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles that have formed due to repeated muscle contraction. The botulinum toxin in Xeomin® acts as a neuromodulator and temporarily blocks signals from nerves to the targeted muscles, which allows the muscles to relax and improve the appearance of dynamic fine lines and wrinkles.
What can I expect during an injection session?
Xeomin® is injected into the facial muscles using a fine needle. There is minimal discomfort associated with the injection process, and, at the patient’s request, we can apply a topical numbing cream prior to an injection session to further reduce any discomfort. Our Xeomin injection sessions are typically completed within 10 to 20 minutes and most of our patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following their injection session.
What results can I expect?
Most patients see a visible improvement in the treated area within three to five days of their injection session, with final results developing over the next month. Results of this injectable treatment can last for up to four months with proper treatment. You may require several injection session to achieve your treatment goals. Individual results may vary.
Am I a candidate?
Xeomin® is a treatment option for patients who are interested in improving the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and other forms dynamic wrinkles. Prior to your injection session, we will review your medical history and general health, and discuss your goals for treatment to determine if Xeomin® is the right choice for you.
