Naked Botox: Xeomin in Nashville, TN
Looking for a more natural way to achieve a youthful appearance or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles?
Xeomin is a popular choice among patients in Nashville, TN, and just might be the anti-aging solution you’ve been searching for.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that can temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
What Kinds of Wrinkles Can Xeomin Treat?
- Brow lines
- Bunny lines (wrinkles on the sides of the nose)
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
- Frown lines (also known as glabellar lines, worry lines, and forehead lines)
- Other facial wrinkles
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin uses the same active ingredient as Botox and Dysport: botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin is a paralytic neurotoxin that temporarily blocks nerve signals.
When injected into muscles, it blocks nerve signals that would tell the muscles to contract. This temporarily “freezes” muscles in place, reducing contractions while also preventing the formation and increase of creases and wrinkles.
What are the Main Differences Between Xeomin and Botox?
Xeomin and Botox’s main difference is that Xeomin does not contain any additives or preservatives. While the additives in Botox injections are safe, some patients prefer to avoid them for a variety of reasons.

What are the Benefits of Xeomin Injectables?
Safe, Long-Lasting Cosmetic Injections
Xeomin has been extensively studied, and in 2010, it received FDA approval for the treatment of wrinkles.
It is a safe and effective injectable, with natural-looking results that can last four months.
The additives and preservatives in Botox may lead to the development of antibodies, leading to a decrease in the injectable’s effectiveness.
Xeomin is often referred to as “Naked Botox” as it does not contain any additives or preservatives. This allows Xeomin to retain its effectiveness.
Xeomin’s lack of additives may also reduce the risk of an allergic reaction.
Considered a lunchtime procedure, Xeomin treatments do not require any downtime for recovery.
What are the Side Effects of Xeomin?
Xeomin is considered to be a safe procedure with minimal side effects.
Common side effects may include:
- Bruises at the injection site
Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin?
Xeomin is considered safe for most patients.
For patients with a long history of Botox treatments, Xeomin may be more effective due to the potential presence of antibodies.
However, Xeomin may not be a good option if you:
- Have had allergic reactions to any other botulinum toxins
- Have a disease that affects your muscles and nerves
- Take certain prescription medications
- Are pregnant
