What Is XEOMIN?
Like BOTOX, XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer treatment that temporarily relaxes the treated facial muscle with purified botulinum toxin type A. Dynamic wrinkles appear smoother and softer, even when you still smile, frown, or laugh. At Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago, IL, we can provide a number of aesthetic services with XEOMIN to help you age with grace and smooth your skin. XEOMIN has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a cosmetic treatment and can be used safely on most men and women. Schedule your consultation with us to learn more about XEOMIN.
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
"I’ve been going back and forth on getting botox for a while. After talking to LPA’s newest injector, Julia Kocemba, I decided to finally go for it and I’m so happy I did!This was my first time receiving injectables and the appointment couldn’t have gone any smoother! Julia answered all of my first-timer questions [yes, there were a lot of them] with great detail and patience. By the time I was ready to be injected, I felt knowledgeable and confident in the process and type of treatments I was about to receive. Throughout the entirety of the appointment, I felt safe and knew I was in the best hands with Julia!I LOVE my results and have been recommending Julia to everyone! I already have my next treatment scheduled and I will continue to reach out to her with any other derm/aesthetics questions I have. Go see Julia!!!!"- A.H. / Yelp / Nov 23, 2020
"I had a fantastic experience with this office and Dr. Gutoswki. Everything from scheduling through the procedure was great. They were thorough and explained my options very well. I had been putting this surgery off for a long time because I thought it was going to be very uncomfortable but everyone was great. They made the entire process really easy and I would definitely recommend them. I'm really happy with my results."- E.M. / Google / Oct 24, 2020

"The team at LPA are so incredibly kind and accommodating. In particular, Jenna M. is incredibly talented with all things aesthetics. She will make you feel your very best - while looking natural, and feeling as if you left a cocoon of care. Her extensive experience, ability to REALLY listen, make sure you are comfortable, and follow up is the gold standard. I can’t recommend her or this clinic more - very special people!"- J.J. / Yelp / Oct 15, 2020
Can I have XEOMIN INjections?
XEOMIN can change the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, such as frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, Crow's feet in the outer corners of the eyes, and smile and laugh lines. XEOMIN is best if you are in good general health, not pregnant, and are not allergic to any other botulinum toxin products (BOTOX or Dysport). Talk to our aesthetics team at your consultation about your medical history, current medications, and your aesthetic goals so we can customize your XEOMIN treatment plan for your best results.
Our Injection Technique
XEOMIN treatments at Lincoln Park Aesthetics usually take less than 30 minutes and can be completed right after your consultation. The parts of the face being treated will be cleaned before XEOMIN is carefully injected with a fine needle. The treatment is fast, and most patients experience mild or no discomfort so local anesthesia will not be necessary but available upon request. Once your injector is ready, they will strategically place your XEOMIN injections in your skin at the source. Improvements from XEOMIN can last up to three months. Each person will metabolize XEOMIN at a different rate, which also determines how long the treatment lasts. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss when you should visit again for another treatment.
What to Expect
You can leave our facility upon the completion of your XEOMIN injections to return to your daily activities; however, heavy activities should be skipped for the rest of the day. We may recommend that you sleep with your head elevated and use cold compresses as needed to speed recovery and results. For a few days following a XEOMIN injection, you may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness near the treatment sites, which can be easily covered up with makeup. Most patients notice obvious improvements 3 – 4 days after their XEOMIN injections. Touch-ups at Lincoln Park Aesthetics can be regularly scheduled to optimize your results.
