How Long Will Results From XEOMIN Last?

In the pursuit of ageless beauty, XEOMIN is a key player. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Baltimore, MD, we recognize the transformative power of this treatment and want to give you an in-depth understanding of how it works, starting with the longevity of its results.

How Long Will Results From XEOMIN Last?

In general, the effects of this treatment typically last between three to four months. However, the precise duration can depend on several factors, including the individual’s skin type, the muscular activity of the treated area, and the administered dose.

As the effects gradually wear off, patients may notice the return of muscle activity. But worry not, as the lines and wrinkles that appear tend to be less pronounced, thanks to the cumulative effect of XEOMIN on the skin and muscle memory.

Influences on Treatment Longevity

Factors such as lifestyle choices, skincare practices, and the regularity of treatment play significant roles in determining how long the effects will last. Dr. Rodney, the founding director of Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, leverages her extensive experience to provide a personalized approach to treatment.

Her training at institutions such as Howard University and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and her fellowship at the American Academy of Dermatology (FAAD), has equipped her to navigate the multifaceted world of aesthetic dermatology. She can give you more specific information relative to your situation when come for your initial consultation.

Individual Differences

Some patients may enjoy the effects of this treatment for a longer duration than others due to differences in metabolism, skin type, and muscular activity. This is why personalized treatment plans, tailored to the individual patient, are central to our approach at Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics. Customizing treatment strategies to suit each patient’s unique needs allows us to optimize the duration and effectiveness of XEOMIN treatments.

Skilled Administration

The skill of the provider is a crucial factor in the successful administration of any treatment. A properly trained and experienced provider, like Dr. Rodney, ensures the accurate dosage and placement of your treatment, resulting in optimal results. This expertise goes a long way in delivering outcomes that are not only long-lasting but also aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking.

Skincare Regimen

Dr. Rodney also emphasizes the significance of a good skincare regimen in prolonging the effects of treatment. Using sun protection, maintaining hydration, and incorporating products that support skin health—like retinol and antioxidants—can make a difference in preserving the smooth, youthful appearance achieved with XEOMIN.

Frequency of Treatment

The frequency of your maintenance treatments can also influence the duration of your results. Regular treatments can potentially train the treated muscles to become less active over time, softening the appearance of wrinkles even when the effects begin to wane. Therefore, staying on track with the recommended treatment schedule is key to maintaining consistent, long-lasting results.

Optimizing Results with Adjunctive Treatments

To extend the longevity of your results and achieve an overall more youthful appearance, we often recommend combining it with other aesthetic treatments. Dermal fillers, for instance, can work in synergy with this treatment. While this treatment mitigates dynamic wrinkles formed by muscle movements, fillers address static wrinkles and volume loss, providing a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.

Another complementary treatment is microneedling. Microneedling prompts the skin to produce more collagen, improving its texture and elasticity. Laser skin resurfacing treatments are yet another option that can be combined with this treatment. They target and improve skin irregularities, such as sun damage, pigmentation, or acne scarring, thereby enhancing the skin’s overall appearance.


XEOMIN, like BOTOX, is a type of botulinum toxin type A clinically formulated to smooth wrinkles by blocking nerve signals to the treated muscles. What sets XEOMIN apart is its “naked” nature – it contains no additional protein shell around the active molecule, potentially making it an excellent option for patients who have developed resistance to other botulinum products.

How Is It Different From BOTOX?

Both of these treatments are FDA-approved injectable neurotoxins used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, but they do have key differences.

Structure and Composition

BOTOX contains additional proteins surrounding the active molecule, botulinum toxin type A. XEOMIN contains no additional proteins: just the active botulinum toxin type A. This absence of proteins means that there’s a potentially lower risk of developing resistance, which can occur in some patients with repeated BOTOX use due to antibody formation against these proteins.

Onset and Diffusion

There’s also a slight difference in onset and diffusion. Some studies suggest that XEOMIN might take effect a bit quicker, typically within 3-4 days compared to BOTOX’s 4-7 days, although this can vary from patient to patient. In terms of diffusion, BOTOX tends to spread or ‘diffuse’ a bit more, meaning it may cover a larger area after injection.

Treatment Application

Both these treatments can be used for treating the same areas, like frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, among others. However, their application may slightly differ based on the individual’s anatomy and the desired outcome. It’s important to note that the success of either treatment depends greatly on the skill and experience of the injector, and the patient’s individual response to the product.
