If you are of a certain age, you may be realizing that the facial wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning, squinting, and laughing are staying even after your face has relaxed. These lines are actually called dynamic wrinkles, and they're caused by the facial muscles contracting and forming etched lines in the skin. Xeomin is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, like BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the facial muscles with a strain of purified botulinum so your wrinkles appear smoother and softer. At Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera, we provide a number of aesthetic and dermatology procedures similar to Xeomin nonsurgical wrinkle relaxing treatments. Arrange for a consultation with our board-certified dermatologist and medical director, Dr. Tracy Evans, for more information about Xeomin.

"I highly, highly recommend Dr. Evans as a doctor for skin cancer. She really knows her stuff and is trained in Mohs surgery (not many dermatologists are!). I really appreciate that she uses the latest technology to keep track of any spots on your skin and has a suspicious eye. I have had doctors in the past who did a quick skin check and literally missed the mark. I can’t really speak to the more cosmetic aspects of her practice, but I do not like how products are offered to me at the end of my appointment. Without being upfront about their cost or the fact that products are not returnable, Dr Evans’ assistant will present the products she recommends I purchase at the end of my appointment. (There is a small sign by the register about the return policy.) I know that these are vetted products and they must help her practice thrive, but I wish I could be offered either a drugstore alternative or a pharmacy prescription option. I’m sure the cost is not an issue for many of her patients, but it is for me and I am simply not able to do what she recommends as far as products are concerned. However, I find her to be so incredibly smart and trustworthy when it comes to skin cancer that I can simply overlook this part of the appointment."- E.R. / Yelp / Aug 18, 2020
"Today was my first time visiting Pacific Skin in Corte Madera. From the moment I arrived, it was an experience of friendliness and professionalism...both of the receptionists welcomed me so kindly, the medical assistant was very pleasant...and when Krystal Shin, my dermatologist came in, I felt I was in the BEST hands. She was so kind, informative, and professional. Even though I wasn’t feeling the best, they made me comfortable and confident that I would be just fine. I am so happy I found Pacific Skin. Thank you for a great experience!"- C.C. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2020
"An amazing staff working with a cutting edge doctor make up this team of talented artists. I feel lucky to be a client each time."- M.D. / Google / May 29, 2020
Xeomin helps to diminish the look of dynamic wrinkles on the face, including frown lines, forehead lines, and Crow's feet. Ideal candidates for Xeomin are in good overall health, are not currently pregnant, and have never had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport.
Xeomin does not contain any additives, like BOTOX and Dysport, so it could be the solution for you if your body has developed antibodies to these additives. Speak with Dr. Evans at your consultation about your aesthetic goals, current medications, and medical history so she can create a Xeomin treatment plan that is specific to you.
Xeomin injections typically take less than 30 minutes from beginning to end and are performed in a relaxing treatment room in our Corte Madera office. The parts of your face receiving treatment will be sterilized before the Xeomin is gently injected with a fine dermal needle. The procedure is fast and generally does not cause great discomfort so local anesthesia is not usually necessary. We will apply cold compresses and pressure to the injections sites to prevent minor bleeding and reduce swelling prior to your return home.
What to Expect
You will be able to leave our office right after receiving your Xeomin injections to return to your daily activities; however, vigorous exercise should be skipped until the next day. We usually recommend that you sleep in a slightly elevated position and apply cold compresses as needed to expedite your recovery and results. After a Xeomin treatment, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the treatment areas, but this is no cause for concern and can be easily covered up with makeup. Many individuals will notice marked improvements about four days after their Xeomin treatment that will last approximately three months. Touch-up injections at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera can be arranged to optimize your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Xeomin cost?
Costs for a Xeomin treatment will vary based on the amount required to achieve your specific goals. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Evans or a member of her professional team will talk to you about your concerns so we can create your unique injection plan. Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera takes several payment methods and sometimes has specials on Xeomin and other nonsurgical treatments.
Should I get Xeomin or BOTOX?
BOTOX and Xeomin are both botulinum toxin wrinkle relaxers. The medical professionals at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera know the subtle differences between these wrinkle treatments so they can help you decide which will deliver your desired results. We will go over all of your cosmetic goals, allergies, and medical history at your consultation as part of determining which brand is best for you.
Should I get Xeomin or fillers?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Xeomin, address dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines and Crow's feet. A dermal filler improves static wrinkles by adding volume under the wrinkle. It is important to tell Dr. Evans exactly what kind of results you are hoping for so she can decide whether you need Xeomin, a filler, or both.
Is Xeomin safe?
Xeomin has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as a cosmetic treatment for certain areas of the face and can be used safely on most men and women. To determine if Xeomin is right for you, we will ask you about any allergies you have, as well as which prescription medications, supplements, and herbs you might be using. You need to be honest to avoid side effects or complications.
How often should I get Xeomin injections?
Xeomin results may be visible for up to 90 days. Different men and women metabolize Xeomin differently, which means that the results will have shorter or longer durations for each patient. We discuss maintenance injection schedules with each patient based on their unique goals and how long their results typically last.
Smooth and Relaxed
If you are ready to release and smooth out your dynamic facial wrinkles, Xeomin wrinkle relaxer treatments at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology may be your solution. Xeomin is one of only three FDA-approved cosmetic wrinkle relaxers, and it is the only one that does not contain extra additives.
