Xeomin Effects

Hi there and thanks for the question. Like Botox, you should start to see the effects of Xeomin by days 5-7, with full results seen by day 14. One day, like any other neurotoxin, is too soon to notice the desirable effects of Xeomin. Hope it helps!

Xeomin and Botox... .read more

XEOMIN has a very similar mode of action - much like Botox, so it will take 5-12 days before it starts to work, with maximal effects around the two week mark. Please be patient, and the wrinkles will reduce. All the best. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Xeomin is similar to botox

Thank you for your question!

Xeomin behaves similarly to botox and typically takes several days to begin to see results, with the full effect requiring up to 14 days to be visible.

Best of luck!

Xeomin Duration of Action

Dear xdtyu88:

One day is too soon to notice the effects of Xeomin.  You should start seeing & feeling the benefits of Xeomin by day 3 with full results seen by day 14.  Be patient, it works well in the hands of an expert injector.  Best wishes.

Xeomin Results

One day is definitely not long enough to begin seeing results. You can start to see results as soon as 3 to 5 days, but it can take up to a week to two weeks for the final result to show.

Xeomin Results

One day is not enough time to see results. Xeomin can take up to 1 week to start seeing and results and up 2 weeks to see full effects.

Patience is a virtue

Xeomin, although newer to the United States, and less popular than other neurotoxins, is actually very widely used in the rest of the world.  The active core molecule resembles that of Botox, athough unlike Botox, does not need the additional protein complexes surrounding it.  From a pure chemistry point of view, this is an over-simplification, but is practically rather accurate.  The onset of action and duration of treatment, as well as the dosing and placement, is officially the same between the two.  Some people will note that the Xeomin-effect starts earlier than Botox. Incidentally, the average duration to maximal effect of Botox is 10-14 days, not generally seven.  

Both products are quoted as lasting three-to four months.

Xeomin results

Yes Xeomin can take a up to 2 weeks before you will see all of the effects like Botox. One day is not enough time to see all the results but you should be seeing results shortly around 4-5 days. The full effect should be seen around the 2 weeks.

How long does Xeomin take to kick in?

Since the active ingredient of Xeomin and Botox are the same, the mechanism of action, duration to see results and duration of action are the same. I really like Xeomin.
