Xeomin in Columbus Ohio
Lines around the eyes and forehead are among the first signs of aging to appear and can happen as early as your 20s! If you’ve noticed these unwelcome changes in the mirror, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, years of facial expressions leave an inevitable mark on your skin, causing you to look and feel older than you should. These facial muscle movements cause the skin to fold repeatedly, creating those wrinkles we all dread.
While there are many treatments available to smooth and improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, there is none quicker and easier than Xeomin injections at Lotus Elite Aesthetics! In just one treatment, we can restore and preserve the youthfulness of your skin.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin, is an anti-wrinkle injection used to relax overactive facial muscles, preventing expression-based wrinkles, similar to Botox. This is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and forehead lines; however, it can be used on other areas such as the jaw muscles for facial slimming.
The active ingredient in Xeomin is botulinum toxin type A (BTXA), which works by blocking nerve signals from reaching muscle cells, preventing muscle contractions.
How does Xeomin work?
During the procedure, your provider will first assess your desired treatment areas and decide the necessary number of units needed to deliver the best result. The liquid solution is then drawn from a vial in preparation for injection.
Xeomin is injected directly into the wrinkle areas, relaxing the facial muscles causing dynamic wrinkles. Once the area has been treated, it takes approximately two weeks until the full results show. You will notice the smoothing effect the following days after treatment, revealing a complexion with reduced lines and wrinkles!
Because your relaxed muscles are no longer able to fold and create wrinkles, receiving treatment will prevent further development and deepening of new wrinkles.
What can be treated with Xeomin?
Xeomin injections are most commonly used in the forehead area, smoothing frown lines between your eyebrows, as well as crow’s feet around your eyes. However, as a versatile treatment, other areas such as the corners of your mouth or jaw can be treated.
Areas that are commonly injected include:
- Glabellar lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Bunny lines
- Frown lines
- Wrinkles around the lips
- Lines on the neck
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Jaw muscles
What can be treated with Xeomin?
In addition to providing fantastic anti-aging results, Xeomin brings a range of benefits that make this an ideal treatment for anybody!
Dynamic wrinkles are smoothed for up to 4 months after every treatment, and the formation of deeper, static wrinkles is prevented, helping to maintain the youthful appearance of your face.

Xeomin vs Botox
Xeomin and Botox work similarly and are administered in the same fashion! While both injectables are neurotoxins used to relax facial muscles, Xeomin differs in formulation as it does not include any extra proteins, which may help to prevent antibody resistance– a problem that can occur with repeated injection.
Liquid Facelift in Columbus, Ohio
Completing your transformation at Lotus Elite Aesthetics with a Liquid Facelift will provide maximum anti-aging effects. While neurotoxins are great for smoothing expression-based wrinkles and preventing the formation of deeper lines, they cannot address existing static lines.
A Liquid Facelift restores lost volume in the face with Radiesse filler, uniquely stimulating collagen production for long-term rejuvenation. This is the latest procedure in non-invasive facial rejuvenation, designed to mimic the results of a surgical facelift without surgery or extensive downtime.
Using Radiesse filler alongside Xeomin, we restore a youthful facial structure and create a lifting effect as we redefine the cheeks and jawline. The result is a beautifully rejuvenated complexion, with restored facial contours.
Am I a good candidate?
If you’re looking for a simple way to preserve the youthfulness of your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, then Xeomin is perfect for you! This anti-aging treatment can be used on all skin types and skin tones and can be combined with injectable treatments such as dermal fillers for further rejuvenation.
Mild side effects such as such as redness, swelling, bruising, itching, tenderness, and headache may occur with Xeomin injections. Pain in the face and injection sites is rarely reported.
These symptoms typically subside within a day and are very mild. If you’ve had an allergic reaction to other injections of Botulinum Toxin, this treatment may not be right for you.
Notify your treatment provider of any existing medical conditions, prescription medicine, or over-the-counter medicine you may be taking such as blood thinners (aspirin-like products) prior to treatment.
Downtime and recovery
You are free to resume normal activities directly after your treatment; however, strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You must refrain from lying down for at least 4 hours after treatment to avoid spreading the solution from the treatment areas.
