What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a prescription injection that is used to help temporarily improve facial aesthetics. This prescription injection is a solution that contains botulinum toxin type A. It specifically targets moderate to severe frown lines that have appeared between the eyebrows. San Antonio Dermatologist, Dr. Vivian Bucay and her team at Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics can help you explore whether or not Xeomin is the right solution for your current needs.


What Xeomin corrects:

  • Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Other visible signs of aging like wrinkles

How Xeomin works

Xeomin works by temporarily reducing muscle contractions in the muscles between the eyebrows. When these muscles are constricted, it reduces the likelihood that deep lines will form. This ultimately reduces the appearance of the frown lines that formed between your eyebrows.

Ideal candidates for Xeomin

Xeomin is appropriate for use by adult patients who wish to improve their outward appearance by reducing moderate to severe frown lines.


“We asked Dr. Bucay to give us all the details on how the treatment works, who is the best candidate, and what differs between this formula and its injectable counterparts. Read on for your crash course in the treatment, either if you’re considering it, or for the sake of pure curiosity.”

Who shouldn’t use Xeomin?

Xeomin should not be used by anyone who may have an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in the product. In particular, people who have an allergy to botulinum toxins should avoid trying Xeomin.

What to expect during your appointment

When you schedule an appointment for Xeomin at Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics, you can expect to spend approximately 30 minutes with us. The actual treatment takes approximately 10-20 minutes and we often like to wait a few minutes afterwards to make sure there are no problems.

What to expect after treatment

After treatment has been administered, we will provide you with a cold pack or cold compress. You will need to hold the compress over the injection site for several minutes. This prevents the area from swelling after treatment and reduces any pain or discomfort.

How long does Xeomin last?

Xeomin is temporary and lasts for a short period of time.
