Xeomin is a wrinkle relaxer product similar to BOTOX. It is administered to the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Xeomin is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve activity and causes a temporary reduction in muscle movement to soften and smoothe lines on the skin’s surface. Baltimore plastic surgeon, Dr. Janet Woodyard, offers both Xeomin and BOTOX for patients seeking nonsurgical wrinkle reduction. During the consultation, she will assess the skin and the areas of concern to determine which product is a better fit for the desired result.
"Dr. Woodyard, I sincerely would like to thank you such a kind and patient person and doctor that you are. You make sure that things are understood by the patient and explained thoroughly. Thank you for not being one of many "Stuffy" doctors that we have in healthcare. I would also like to inform you of the professional, very patient and friendly staff. I call the office five times in one day and the hospitality is always the same. They are the poster children of "Customer friendly". I really appreciate you and excited to have experienced you are my doctor."- L / Office Visit / Nov 14, 2017

What To Expect
Xeomin is usually a 20 minute procedure. The doctor will inject Xeomin directly into the patient’s facial muscles. Injections may be administered to more than one area at a time, depending on the desired results. No anesthesia is required, but the doctor can use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to prevent or reduce any patient discomfort.
After the Procedure
Patients may not begin to see results or improvements until 7 days after receiving Xeomin injections and results typically last 3-4 months.
The expected cost of Xeomin varies depending on the number of areas being treated. Patients can expect to pay between $400-$800 per Xeomin treatment session.

Xeomin or BOTOX?
Xeomin is different from BOTOX because it does not contain any additives, which lessens the chances of patients building antibodies against the medication. Patients should not use Xeomin with other botulinum products. During a consultation, the cosmetic surgeon can determine the best botulinum product for each patient.
Yes, Xeomin is an FDA-approved product. Based on two US clinical trials, Xeomin is a safe and effective treatment for adults with cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, facial lines, wrinkles and folds. The US is the 20th country to approve the prescription medication.
Medications and Xeomin?
Medications, such as cold and allergy medication, muscle relaxers, sleeping aids and urinary medications can increase the chance of Xeomin’s side effects. Patients should notify the cosmetic surgeon if they are currently using any blood thinners or antibiotics.
Missed a Treatment?
Patients should not worry if they missed a Xeomin treatment. Xeomin injections have a temporary effect, and are given months apart. Missing a dose is not harmful to patients.
