Xeomin treatment in Portland, OR
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an intramuscular prescription medication that is injected to enhance the appearance of frown lines in between the eyebrows. It contains a protein called botulinum toxin type A which has been purified from a bacterium called clostridium botulinum. It can effectively reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and other creases found on the face.
XEOMIN is considered to be the best non-invasive way for reducing wrinkles at VIPMEDISPA.
HOW DOES XEOMIN WORK?
Whenever you frown or squint, the muscles found between your brows tend to contract thereby causing the skin to fold and furrow. With time, as you age, your skin starts to lose its elasticity. Repeated frowning and squinting can cause persistent frown lines on your xeomin-iStock 000019361528 Largeface.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN cosmetic treatment is botulinum toxin type A which works on the nerve endings within your muscles. It prevents contraction of the muscle fibers which are known to cause frown lines. Once these contractions have been reduced, XEOMIN can effectively reduce the number of lines found between your brows and the forehead. However, results of XEOMIN are temporary.
IS XEOMIN A PROVEN METHOD?
Several clinical trials were carried out, each involving 547 people. The participants received 20 units of XEOMIN injection and the results were measured on a 4 point scale. Any patient who showed an improvement on 2 point was considered to be a ‘responder’. On the 30th day of the clinical trials, it was apparent that the higher success rate (60 percent and above) was a result of XEOMIN as compared to 0 percent of the placebo.
Based on these trials, the FDA approved XEOMIN to be used for cosmetic purposes in 2011.
IS XEOMIN RIGHT FOR ME?
XEOMIN is suitable for adults who have moderate to severe glabeller lines. Dr Max Grishkevich can advise you based on your individual case.
If you are allergic to botulinum toxin or to any other ingredients found in this drug, never take XEOMIN. If you had experienced an allergic reaction or suffered from a skin infection at the planned point of injection, then you should avoid using XEOMIN.
WHAT SHOULD I DO PRIOR TO XEOMIN TREATMENT?
Before you receive XEOMIN cosmetic treatment, you have to make sure that you consult Dr. Max Grishkevich and disclose all (if any) of the medical conditions that you may have. Particular importance should be given to those conditions which affect your nerves and muscles. Also state whether or not you have any allergies to the ingredients found in XEOMIN.
Don’t forget to inform Dr. Max at VIPMEDISPA about all the medications that you take, regardless of whether they are prescription or non prescription drugs –this applies even to any vitamins or supplements that you take on a regular basis.
If you have received any botulinum product in the past (usually within the last four months), then you should disclose that too. The importance of this cannot be overemphasized; you have to tell everything about what medications you have had and when.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING XEOMIN COSMETIC TREATMENT?
The whole treatment takes typically between 10 to 20 minutes. Dr. Max Grishkevich will inject XEOMIN directly into your muscles on the forehead that are responsible for causing frown lines. The treatment does not require any anesthesia; nonetheless, to ensure maximum comfort, you may be offered a cold pack or a topical anesthetic.
WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT THE RESULTS OF XEOMIN?
Most of our patients start to see the results by the third or the fourth day of being administered XEOMIN cosmetic injection. The first major changes will start appearing within a week. For maximum results to appear, it may take around a month or so. Mostly, it was take around 3 months for the effects to fully settle; however, this will vary significantly from one individual to another.
You can read XEOMIN reviews to see when people started to see the effects in their case.
WHAT SIDE EFFECTS ARE THERE?
Precautions need to be taken as there can be some serious side effects as a result of using XEOMIN. This can include allergic reactions, whose symptoms would include the following:
- Asthma symptoms
If you feel any of these symptoms after the treatment, you should consult a doctor immediately.
The most common side effect is headache.
XEOMIN Portland, OR is also known to cause general muscle weakness, a loss of strength, drooping eyelids, or blurred vision within a few hours of having the drug injected. If any of these symptoms start to appear, do not drive or operate any machinery to avoid injury.
XEOMIN VS BOTOX: WHAT MAKES XEOMIN DIFFERENT?
The origins of XEOMIN are different and it does not include any protein found in BOTOX. This prevents the body from forming antibodies which would otherwise reduce or even prevent the effectiveness of the active ingredient found in XEOMIN.
When you are deciding on which treatment is best for you, you must ensure that you ask professionals at VIPMEDISPA what is xeomin really is. Not only will this clear up any misunderstandings or confusions that you may have, but by consulting Dr. Max Grishkevich, you will be able to figure out whether this is the right kind of treatment for you.
One more thing that makes XEOMIN cosmetic treatment stand out is that it doesn’t require any anesthesia – therefore you’ll be able to get back to work right after the treatment as long as you’re not experiencing any side effects.
XEOMIN is a relatively new treatment method that eliminated frown lines on temporary bases; however, within a short period of time, it has amazed patients and medical practitioners alike by its success rates.
It does have serious side effects though, and care has to be taken to fully ensure that it is completely suitable for use by you. This makes it absolutely crucial that you have this injected only by experienced staff at VIPMEDISPA who have years of experience in performing all kinds of cosmetic surgeries.
what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"

"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."

"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
