While you may have smiled, frowned, laughed, and made other expressions without worrying about the lasting effects when you were younger, you may now be noticing that the facial lines caused by these expressions are remaining even after your face relaxes.
These lines are known as dynamic wrinkles and are caused when the facial muscle stays contracted from overuse, etching a line in the overlying skin. XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, similar to BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum — so your dynamic wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Ciao Bella Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, we offer a number of aesthetic and medical dermatology services, including XEOMIN nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consult with Frisco XEOMIN expert Dr. Jon Ricks and his experienced team to learn more.
XEOMIN helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, and smile and laugh lines. The best candidates for XEOMIN are in good overall health, not pregnant, and have not had an allergic reaction to other botulinum products, like BOTOX. Speak with Dr. Ricks during your consultation about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so he can customize a XEOMIN treatment plan that is specific to you.
30 minute procedure
XEOMIN injections usually last under 30 minutes from start to finish and can be completed in one of our procedure rooms after your consultation. The parts of the face receiving treatment will be sterilized before XEOMIN is gently injected with a fine dermal needle. The treatment is quick and does not generally cause great discomfort, so local anesthesia is not necessary but can be requested if you want. Cold compresses and pressure will be applied to the site of the injections to stop any minor bleeding before you leave.
Resume daily activities
You can leave our office upon the completion of your XEOMIN treatment to resume your daily activities, but heavy physical exertion should be avoided until the next day. We may recommend that you sleep with your head elevated and apply cold compresses periodically to expedite healing and results. For a few days following your treatment with XEOMIN Frisco patients may experience some minor redness, swelling, and bruising of the injection areas, but this should heal on its own and can be easily concealed with makeup. Most patients will see marked improvements 3 – 4 days following treatment lasting approximately three months. Repeat treatments at Ciao Bella Medical Spa can be scheduled to sustain your results.
Costs for a XEOMIN treatment will vary based on the number of injections required to fit your needs and concerns. During your consultation, you will talk about your cosmetic goals so your injector can develop your personalized plan, and then your cost can be estimated. Ciao Bella Medical Spa accepts several forms of payment and frequently has specials on XEOMIN and nonsurgical treatments.
BOTOX and XEOMIN are injectable wrinkle relaxers activated by a purified strain of botulinum toxin. The skilled injectors at Ciao Bella Medical Spa understand the differences between XEOMIN and other wrinkle treatments, so they can determine which will deliver the desired results for each patient. During your consult, your injector will understand your needs and concerns before helping you decide if XEOMIN or another injectable is right for your goals.
Wrinkle relaxers like XEOMIN improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, particularly the frown and smile lines. A dermal filler treats static wrinkles and adds volume. Talk to your injector about your needs/concerns and wants so they can determine if you should get XEOMIN, a dermal filler, or a combination of both.
XEOMIN is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a cosmetic wrinkle treatment, which can be safely used on most men and women. During your initial consult, your injector will ask a few questions, like any known allergies plus all medications, supplements, and herbs you are currently taking. You should be open and honest to avoid complications or side effects.
Results from XEOMIN may be visible for up to 90 days. Each person will metabolize the injection at a different rate, which determines how long their results last. In your initial consult, your injector will talk about when you should schedule appointments to touch up your results.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."
