I’ve been having issues with dry eyes for months now, possibly thyroid or mold-related and I want to get Xeomin around my deep eye wrinkles and forehead. Will I have further problems if I get the Xeomin?

Xeomin & Eye Dryness

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Dryness of eye might happen (or get worse) in theory if Xeomin (or Botox/Dysport) injection interferes with function of muscles responsible for moving eyelids, but this is very rare with right injection technique, placement and dosing, so as long as you are working with an experienced physician, it should be ok. I hope it helps and good luck!
