Xeomin is a prescription medication approved by the US FDA for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is injected into the muscle to temporarily relax and smooth the muscle, in turn, improving the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows.
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. Xeomin should not be used interchangeably with other botulinum products.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is Xeomin given?
Xeomin is injected into a muscle by one of our trained healthcare providers. Your injection may be given into more than one area at a time, depending on the condition being treated.
How does Xeomin work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Overtime, as your skin ages and lose some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. The active ingredient in Xeomin acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions it can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead between your brows.
When can I expect to see results?
Some patients observe visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection while others will typically see results after a week.
