WHAT IS XEOMIN? Xeomin is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles. Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
HOW DOES XEOMIN WORK? When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in Xeomin– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS? You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The full effect may take up to 3 weeks. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
