While lines and folds form in the skin over time, Xeomin Injections are the newest line of defense in injectables & facial fillers against the distinctive “II,” or frown lines between the eyebrows. In addition, Xeomin reduces furrows on the forehead and crow’s feet around the outer edges of the eyes. Though similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is comprised of a pure form of botulinum toxin type A, with no additives.
Repeated contraction and movement of underlying muscles of the face such as frowning or squinting causes collagen beneath the skin to crease and break. When Xeomin is injected into the skin, it works to block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions. While these injections do not result in a “frozen look,” they prevent excess movement of the skin when making expressions. Thus, Xeomin can be used to reduce existing lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new wrinkles from forming by controlling muscle movement.

With short treatment time, minimal side effects, and fast results (within one week), Xeomin Injections are used to soften expressions, giving a notably refreshed look to the upper face. Xeomin is an effective alternative to surgery that reduces moderate to deep wrinkles between the eyebrows that may cause individuals to appear sad, grumpy, serious, or worried.
Treatment using Xeomin is quick (10-20 minutes) and relatively painless. No anesthetic is necessary, though numbing cream or an ice pack may be used to minimize any discomfort. While results are noticeable within one week, improvements continue for up to 30 days, with results lasting 3-4 months.
