Dr. Saurabh Lodha
This was my first appointment with a dermatologist and it was a lot less scary than anticipated! Dr. Lodha is full of knowledge and little facts that will make u want to treat your skin with more respect. He did not lecture yet he explained and I was very thankful for that. I would recommend anyone to go and see their new office – it’s great Dr. Lodha, was very reassuring about my concerns. He was also very explicit and caring about the small procedure he was performing. He was very thorough, gave me as much time as I needed, responding to my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha...

Xeomin®

What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a neuromodulator mainly used in the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as many expression lines around the face. Similar to other neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport, Xeomin®’s active ingredient is made from the bacteria which causes botulism. The botulinum toxin allows Xeomin® to block certain nerve activity to the muscles within the treatment area, causing small facial muscles to cease up. When these small muscles stop their function, and no longer tighten and contract, the skin above does not take on the expression lines it did previously. This leave patients with smooth, soft, skin free of expression lines and wrinkles!

Benefits of Xeomin®
One major difference of Xeomin® from its competitors (Botox & Dysport) is that Xeomin® is what’s called a “naked injectable”. The term refers to the fact that Xeomin® does not contain any additives, it is comprised solely of the botulinum toxin. The benefit of this pure-form injectable is that the body is less likely to resist (very rare) an injection, and it will go to work much faster and smoother. Many additives and binding agents tend to be rejected by the body and can often cause irritation, and even infection. Other major benefits are:

  • Reduced forehead wrinkles
  • Reduced eyebrow wrinkles
  • Little to no downtime
  • Generally repeated every 4-6 months.
  • Little to no pain.
  • Sessions only require about 5-10 minutes, depending on size of the treatment area.

How does Xeomin® work?
Xeomin® is administered using a number of tiny injections to the area in need of correction. With sessions typically lasting only 5-10 minutes.

Depending on the severity, as well as the placement of the wrinkles, Xeomin® may need to be repeated every 4-6 months. A few days after the procedure is complete, you will begin to see the difference as your wrinkles will start to disappear.

Xeomin® is a highly-effective, and far safer than other more invasive treatments and procedures. However, as with any facial injectable, patients may experience slight swelling and/or redness in the treatment area. Avoid rubbing the area as well any direct sunlight for at least a day or two after treatment. Any swelling, redness, or discomfort should disappear within the first 24 hours.
