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.

"Blessed that Dr. Dash did my BA - I’m 3 days post op from my BA and couldn’t have asked for a better physician to do my surgery. Dr. Dash and her staff were amazing. I was a little nervous going into my first consult, but everyone made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dash throughly went over the different kinds of implants, case studies that have been done and answered every question that I had. She is very patient, kind and ful..."- B. / RealSelf / Oct 22, 2018
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated. Now that I’m 32, I have finally figured out how to feed myself and I’m stable enough that I’ve decided t..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018
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.
