XEOMIN® is a prescription injectable medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses elasticity, these repeated contractions often cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, one of our technicians will inject XEOMIN® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; however, we may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
When can I expect to see results?
In clinical trials, some patients observed visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The first effects are usually noticed in less than a week. The maximum effect occurrs typically at 30 days. On average, the duration of wrinkle reduction effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may be longer or shorter for individual patients.
