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 love my new neck! I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed! - I love Dr. Jain and his staff! Dr. Jain tells you the truth about what he can do for you. I have had other doctors who promised what they would do and how I would look and it did not turn out that way. I am so happy with the procedure Dr. Jain did for me. He was very kind and honest with me. If you need a procedure done I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed!"- W. / RealSelf / Dec 20, 2019
"Dr. Dash is Amazing!!!! - I had my implant exchange a few hours ago and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Dash. She is the most personable doctor I have ever met. The entire procedure went smoothly and I have very minimal discomfort. She listened to my concerns and I felt 1000% comfortable in her care."- S. / RealSelf / Sep 23, 2019
"Dr Jain is amazing. My daughter has a birth mark on her face. I did a lot of research and took my daughter in for the consult. He made my very anxious/nervous daughter & I feel at ease. He did an amazing job. We won't see the final results till after hopefully only 1 more procedure."- K.N. / Facebook / Jul 10, 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.
