WHAT IS XEOMIN®
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridum 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 you eyebrows.
STATE-OF-THE-ART MANUFACTURING PROCESS
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. XEOMIN® is a highly purified neurotoxin.
XEOMIN® is clinically proven to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During Treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your provider will inject XEOMIN® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required; however, your provider may use a cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT 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 effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
