How Quickly Does Xeomin Start Working?

At Eternal Dermatology and Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we know that frown lines can make you look and feel older than you are and even make you look unapproachable and give off the impression of being angry or irritated. Whether frown lines are light, moderate, or severe, they can negatively affect appearance. We offer XEOMIN® at our Washington D.C. area office: a unique injectable that can smooth these lines safely and for several months.

How Quickly Does XEOMIN® Start Working?

One of the reasons that many patients choose XEOMIN® over other neuromodulators is that it is a relatively fast-acting treatment. After your injections, you can expect to see improvements in the appearance of your expression lines within two to three days. Those results will continue to improve in the month following your treatments. With regular treatments, you can maintain wrinkle-free results long term.

What To Expect From Your Anti-Aging Treatment in the Washington D.C. Area

If you are interested in undergoing treatment with XEOMIN® at our Washington D.C. area office, the first step is to schedule an initial consultation. This consultation is important because it helps us confirm that this injectable is safe for you and helps us learn more about your aesthetic or aging-related concerns. We can make additional treatment recommendations during this consultation to help you achieve comprehensive results.

Since this injectable can be combined with dermal fillers during the same appointment, we can address multiple concerns simultaneously. After we ask you some questions about your medical history and any previous experience with neuromodulators to ensure that you are not allergic to botulism toxin A, we can move forward with the treatment process.

The Treatment

If necessary, we can apply a topical numbing cream to the injection sites before administering the treatment to ensure optimal comfort. While some choose this option, others forgo it and can undergo the treatment without significant discomfort. This is something we can discuss at the time of treatment. After cleansing the treatment area, we will make several small, quick injections into the muscles around the brow area to smooth your crown line.


You will be free to resume your normal daily routine once your treatment is over. You must follow some specific post-treatment instructions, including avoiding strenuous exercise and activities that increase your body temperature. If you plan to work out on the day of your treatment, do so before your appointment and wait another 24 hours before your next workout.

Also, avoid blood-thinning, supplements, medication, and touching the treatment area for the first 24 hours. Keep your head elevated for several hours after your appointment, and make sure you stay hydrated to support healthy skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will My Results Last?

Like the other popular neuromodulators, XEOMIN®  delivers results that, on average, last around three to four months. For some, results may last longer if their body metabolizes the ingredients slower. When you start to see your frown lines gradually reappear, you will know it’s time to schedule a follow-up treatment.

How Is It Different From BOTOX®?

XEOMIN® is a unique neuromodulator because it’s formulated without any added proteins, meaning it’s a highly purified combination of ingredients with different trace proteins. While it works on the muscular level the same way that other neuromodulators like BOTOX® and Dysport® do, the formula is slightly different.

Those at risk of certain allergies or have experienced tolerance to other products may be good candidates for XEOMIN®, as well as those who want to use the purest formula to treat frown lines.

Am I a Treatment Candidate?

If you want to smooth frown lines between your eyebrows and use a highly purified protein-based neuromodulator to do so, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. During your initial consultation, we can give you additional details about the product, how it works, and what kind of results you can expect. We will also ask you questions to confirm your eligibility and then proceed with the treatment process.

Patients must commit to taking the necessary steps before and after treatment to ensure the best results and understand that follow-up treatments are the only way to maintain long-term results.

What Happens if I Temporarily Discontinue Treatment?

You will not experience any negative reactions if you have to discontinue treatments temporarily for specific reasons. Your frown lines will simply reappear and look like they did before you began treatment.

Some patients will discontinue treatment temporarily while trying to conceive, throughout pregnancy, or for other extenuating circumstances. As soon as you are ready to resume treatment, you can schedule an appointment, and we can help you smooth your frown lines with the right neuromodulator.
