An FDA-approved injection, Xeomin is made from botulinum toxin. Xeomin is used to temporarily treat forehead lines, wrinkles, and creases in the brow area. Over time, frown lines and creases form on the face due to repeated movement – frowning, squinting, smiling, etc. These repeated expressions can cause permanent lines on the face. Xeomin temporarily paralyzes these muscles, stopping muscle contraction and providing temporary improvement in wrinkles and lines.
Some patients who don’t respond well to Dysport or Botox find success with Xeomin. Xeomin has no additives, just botulinum toxin type A, meaning there is less risk of developing antibodies against Xeomin than other available neurotoxins. The effects of Xeomin occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox in terms of both onset and duration. Many patients find that their results last longer after repeated injections – sometimes up to six months. Wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes will become smoother, your brow may be lifted and your eyelid may appear more open. Most patients report they look more relaxed and alert.
