What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is made through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the accessory proteins that don't play an active role in treatment. XEOM IN® is a highly purified neurotoxin.
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 XEOM IN®- 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.
What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment,which usually takes about 10-20 minutes,your injector will inject XEOMIN® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required;however,your highly skilled medical professional may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
When can Iexpect to see results?
You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The maximum effect occurred at 30 days. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
