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.
"I had a breast reduction from Dr. Woodyard over 23 years ago and I must say I am still SO VERY HAPPY. I have watched some of these plastic surgery shows and recently I saw a show dedicated to women that had had complication from a reduction (the horror). I never thought one could have problems with a reduction but wow can you....I had the best results and experience with Dr. Woodyard and never had any complications and to this day my GIRLS are just as perking and looking great as ever. I remember how professional, caring and informative she was. I trusted her completed and I'm so glad she was worth the trust, as I was young and did not ask many questions. I am grateful now and was grateful then..."- A.A. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"I have used Dr. Woodyard for several procedures over the last twenty years, medical and cosmetic. Her office personnel are always professional and efficient.

Her aesthetician, Stacey Edgar, addressed my concerns and created a plan for me that would help me avoid more invasive procedures. I highly recommend the office for any type of cosmetic concerns that you have."- D.L. / Google / Mar 08, 2020

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.
