Xeomin in Middletown, NJ
As we age, we begin to have wrinkles and lines on our faces with some being worse than others. Dr. John Taylor, a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs Xeomin® injections on patients in Red Bank, NJ, who want to correct the severe frown lines and wrinkles that seem to be more noticeable.
What Is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable similar to Botox® in terms of its ingredients and purpose. Xeomin® has been thoroughly purified to remove proteins, so it is almost a pure neurotoxin to inject into muscles to diminish and even remove severe lines such as scowl lines, frown lines, and deep worry lines across the forehead. Xeomin® was originally introduced to treat conditions such as severe spasms in the neck muscles (cervical dystonia) and certain eye muscle issues.
Benefits of Xeomin®
Xeomin® is an alternative to Botox® and offers the following benefits:
- Corrects and diminishes moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and along the forehead
- Reduces pain associated with headaches
- Treats eyelid spasms and severe neck pain
How Are Xeomin® Treatments Injected?
Injections are administered directly to the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, as the Botulinum A toxin causes temporary weakness or paralysis in these small muscles. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief – most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite.
Dr. Taylor makes detailed notes and diagrams in all patient charts to document exactly how each individualized treatment was administered.
Preparing for Xeomin®
Preparation for Xeomin® is similar to other injectable cosmetic procedures. We will begin by preparing your skin, which should be free of any makeup or moisturizer. Preparation may include numbing if you are sensitive to needles. The needles are tiny and barely noticeable, however.
Recovery from Xeomin®
Shortly after treatment, facial muscles relax and lines and wrinkles soften. Eyebrows lift and eyes widen to reclaim that youthful, vital look. And although final results are seen in a few days, patients are asked to return to the office about one week after treatment so Dr. Taylor can monitor the effects, possibly injecting a small additional amount to “tweak” the final results and to ultimately ensure complete patient satisfaction.
Since results are temporary, patients usually return for follow-up Botox® Cosmetic and Xeomin® treatments every three to four months. With long-term use, the effects of this product may last even longer, allowing for longer intervals between treatments.
How Much Do Xeomin® Injections Cost?
The cost of Xeomin® injections is based on the targeted areas for treatment as well as the number of injections used to treat the wrinkles. When you come for your consultation, we can go over the costs and our payment options which include cash, checks, and most major credit cards. We also offer financing through CareCredit®. For cosmetic treatments and procedures, we ask that the payment in full be made two weeks prior to the procedure. If Xeomin® is used to treat headaches, your insurance plan may cover the injections.
Is Xeomin® Right for Me?
If your frown lines and lines around your eyes and forehead are moderate to severe, but you do not need plastic surgery, Xeomin® may be right for you.
Why Choose Dr. Taylor for Xeomin® Injections?
Dr. Taylor is an expert at injecting Xeomin® into targeted areas. He takes great care in not over-injecting it to ensure that the changes are subtle but effective to create a happier and more refreshed appearance.

During your consultation, Dr. Taylor takes time to evaluate your face to determine the best treatment options to achieve your goals. If time permits, you may be able to receive your Xeomin® injections while there.
