Another BOTOX®-like option

While BOTOX Cosmetic has become a household name, there are other wrinkle smoothing injectables in this category that work the same way. In addition to BOTOX and Dysport®, we offer XEOMIN at our San Francisco Bay Area practice to round out our menu of neuromodulators. We specialize in the skilled application of these products for facial rejuvenation and contouring. We also have the training and experience to know which of these similar—yet slightly different—products is best suited to your needs.

What Is XEOMIN?

XEOMIN is a neuromodulator in the same category as BOTOX and Dysport. All three are made from the same protein, botulinum toxin type A, and can be used to treat the same concerns. While the formulations are extremely similar, each claims to have its own unique characteristics. At Mabrie Facial Institute, we have plenty of experience with all three of these neuromodulators, and we will discuss their properties with you when developing your treatment plan.

How Does XEOMIN Work?

XEOMIN works in the same way as other neuromodulators. These injectable neurotoxins relax facial muscles by blocking the nerve impulses that are responsible for activating them. This pauses the movements that cause wrinkles on the upper face—frowning, squinting, etc.—without limiting your range of expressions. It can also help shrink overdeveloped jaw muscles and glands that cause lower face fullness.

What Does XEOMIN Treat?

XEOMIN is FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines—the vertical lines between the eyebrows. It is also commonly used “off label” to treat crow’s feet, horizontal forehead furrows, and bunny lines at the top of the nose near the inner corner of the eyes. For some individuals, XEOMIN can be used to create a subtle brow lift—a delicate procedure best left to experts such as the skilled Injectors at Mabrie Facial Institute.

We also use neuromodulators for our popular lower face slimming procedure, which reduces enlarged masseter (jaw) muscles and parotid glands for a more “V-shaped” face.

I'm a Top 25 Most Loved Injector

Out of 2,000 nominees in the U.S., Dr. Mabrie was voted one of the Top 25 Most Loved Injectors for 2017 by the RealSelf community. Thanks to all our amazing patients for making him the only injector in the Bay Area to receive this honor.

Your XEOMIN Procedure

Whether you’re getting XEOMIN as part of an upper face rejuvenation or to treat a single area, we start your appointment with a thorough evaluation of your makeup-free face and a discussion of your goals and concerns. We document your treatment baseline with a series of clinical photos, then carefully mark the treatment area(s) to pinpoint the targeted muscles. Our highly trained associates will make sure you are comfortable and relaxed for the duration of your procedure. Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how simple and painless these treatments are.

You can reapply makeup in about an hour, and after that, you can return to your normal daily activities. It is not uncommon to have redness, minor swelling, or itching at the injection sites, but this should go away within 24 to 48 hours. XEOMIN results start to appear within 5 to 7 days, with full results usually apparent 10 days after treatment. Like other neuromodulators, XEOMIN results typically last 3 to 4 months, and can be prolonged with regularly scheduled treatments.

XEOMIN FAQs

How much does XEOMIN cost?

At Mabrie Facial Institute, neuromodulator treatments start at $360, and vary depending on the number of areas treated and the amount of product needed. Prices are subject to change, so please call or check our Fees & Financing page for current pricing.


What Are the differences Between BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN?

While all 3 of these neuromodulators are made from the same substance and work in the same way, XEOMIN claims to be more “pure.” It is made through a special manufacturing process that removes any inactive or unnecessary additives. Studies have not been performed to determine whether this has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy, and we have not encountered any instances of allergic reactions to either BOTOX or Dysport.


What Are the differences Between XEOMIN and Dermal Fillers?

Both neuromodulators and dermal fillers can be used to correct lines and wrinkles, but they work differently and on different types of wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, are designed to restore volume and hydration to smooth wrinkles, creases, folds, and recessed areas from underneath the skin. XEOMIN and other neuromodulators correct a specific type of wrinkles called “dynamic wrinkles,” which are caused by repeated muscle movement. They relax the associated facial muscles and allow the skin to gradually smooth out.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!

Dr Mabrie's office was in a convenient location in Union square. It is an elegant office, I was greeted warmly. I was nervous as I had other facial experiences that I did not want to repeat. Matt gave me details on the products and answered all my questions even ones I didn't know I had. When Kimberly can in I was ready. With a steady gentle touch she made such a difference in my appearance. I am excited to get back in and continue down the path of renewal. I look like me only refreshed. Comments like you look great, had some time off? I love it!
