Risks associated with Xeomin injections are rare. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted doctor or nurse. The Injection team at SpaMedica have years of experience ensuring the risks associated with the procedure are extremely uncommon.
Allergic reactions are rare but possible. Patients should go over the ingredients in Xeomin before receiving the injection, to ensure they do not have an allergy to any of the components.
Problems with Speaking, Swallowing, or Breathing
While extremely rare, it is possible to experience problems with speaking, swallowing, or, even more rarely breathing, when adjacent muscles are affected. This can occur within hours or several weeks after receiving the injections.
Spread of the Toxin
It’s possible for the botulinum toxin to spread past the injection site and can weaken facial muscles and expressions that you may not want to be affected. The high quality and experienced SpaMedica injection professionals, physicians and nurses, can ensure the risks of Xeomin and Botox injections are extremely rare.

Dr. Mulholland and the plastic surgeons, dermatologists and injection nurses perform all the Xeomin injections and Botox injections at SpaMedica. The injection professional marks the treatment areas and then applies a mild antiseptic. A topical numbing agent or laughing gas is available to those who are concerned about discomfort. Then, the injection professional uses an ultra-fine needle to inject the Xeomin into the targeted and undesirable facial animation muscles.
To prepare for injections, patients should:
The procedure is quick and relatively painless, and people can resume normal activities immediately afterwards. Patients should begin to see results within 4 days, although it could take up to 30 days to see the maximum effect. To avoid dispersion beyond the targeted area, the region injected should not be rubbed firmly for 3 hours.
There is no downtime associated with Xeomin injections. However, people should avoid heavy exercise and rubbing the treated areas following the procedure since this can cause the toxin to migrate.

Xeomin injections are not painful. People might experience slight discomfort but should not feel pain. At SpaMedica, all our neurotoxin injections (Botox injection, Evolus Nuceiva Botox injection, Xeomin and Dysport) can be made more comfortable using topical anesthetic cream, air cooling on the skin or even laughing gas (nitrous oxide).
The most common side effect can be bruising. Rare side effects include temporary muscle weakness, drooping eyelids, and blurred vision.
Xeomin and all the other Botox injectables are delicate proteins and can potentially be damaged and the effects reduced or eliminated by the heating effects of lasers and energy-based devices, especially immediately after injection when they are superficial. However, once Xeomin and Botox injectables have travelled down to and started to block the targeted muscles, it is safe to use lasers and energy-based devices on the surface of the skin as the Botox injection molecules are deep within the muscle.
