While you may have been able to smile, frown, laugh, and make other facial expressions without any lasting effects when you were young, you might be realizing that the facial lines caused by these expressions are now staying even after your face relaxes. These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles and they are caused by the overuse of the facial muscles that make them stay contracted, creating etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer treatment that, similar to BOTOX, periodically relaxes the facial muscles with a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A, so your dynamic wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs, CO, we provide many aesthetic and dermatology procedures including Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxer treatments. Arrange for a consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons for more information about Xeomin.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I highly recommend Institute of Plastic Surgery. Very professional and caring Dr’s and staff. The office Manager Lucy is awesome! I had laser done on dark spots on my face. I never had anything like that done before. Everything was explained thorough and it went very well with great results. Thank you for everything and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!"- B.T. / Facebook / Apr 24, 2019
"Dr. Dash is absolutely amazing!! I felt so comfortable with her instantly and she took so much time to explain everything to me in such detail in a way that was so easy to understand about the beast augmentation I wanted! She was amazing at settling my nerves right before I went into the OR! I would recommend her to anyone! So knowledgeable and doesn’t sugar coat any risks associated... I couldn’t have been any happier with my experience with her and all the staff there! They have all been so nice and make you feel so welcome from the first visit."- D.V. / Facebook / Apr 17, 2019
"Dr. Dash is amazing! She is super smart and funny and did a great job on my breast reduction. Everything was explained well and pain was managed great. I looked at several surgeons and liked that she doesn't use drains (and apparently I didn't need them because everything went fine without). My neck and shoulder pain are virtually gone! I can do cardio without getting a black eye ;-) Thanks Dr. Dash!"- B.V. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"As a TG female it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, who is respectful, and who can really understand the importance of how you look. My mother and I interviewed surgeons from Boulder to Colorado Springs, and we both knew from the moment we met Dr. Dash that she was the only one we wanted to work with. The support staff was professional, courteous, and always greeted us with smiles. I really impressed that they were always on time, including the day of surgery, which was not the case with many of the other surgeons I interviewed. What’s most important though is the results, and I can’t put it in words how happy I am! My breasts not only look natural, but Dr. Dash was able to give me the size and shape I always wanted. I healed quickly, with minimal scaring that you can barely see 6 weeks after, and LOVE my body as a result. This has been one of the best choices of my life, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Dash! Thank you Dr. Dash!"- C.D. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
Xeomin can help if you want to improve the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, like frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines. Xeomin is best if you are in good general health, are not currently pregnant, and have not had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products (BOTOX or Dysport). Speak with your surgeon during your consultation about your current medications, aesthetic goals, and medical history so they can customize a Xeomin treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin injections typically last around 30 minutes and can be completed in our procedure room after your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be cleaned and sterilized before Xeomin is carefully injected with a fine gauge needle. The procedure is fast, and most patients experience mild or no discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary but is available upon request. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the treatment area to stop any minor bleeding before you leave.
What to Expect
You can leave our facility immediately after your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, exercise and other strenuous activities should be skipped for the rest of the day. We may recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses periodically to expedite recovery and results. In the days after a Xeomin treatment, you may have some redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment areas, but this should heal on its own and can be easily covered up with makeup. Most patients will see marked improvements 3 – 4 days following their Xeomin treatment lasting up to three months. Repeat treatments at our practice can be arranged to optimize your results.
