Xeomin

See a difference in your frown lines with an aesthetic XEOMIN® treatment. 

What Is XEOMIN®

XEOMIN® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.

XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

XEOMIN® is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA

XEOMIN® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. 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® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.

XEOMIN®  Is Proven To Work

XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, was proven effective in two randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled clinical trials of more than 540 adult patients in the treatment of glabellar frown lines. The average age of patients in the study was 46 years. Patients received 20 Units of XEOMIN® and were classified as responders if they had a 2-grade improvement on a 4-point scale as assessed by the physician and patient. Using these criteria, treatment success was higher with XEOMIN® than placebo on day 30 in both studies (60% and 48% vs. 0% for placebo in both studies). Based on these trials, XEOMIN® received FDA approval for aesthetic use in 2011.

Is XEOMIN® Right For Me

If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyes), XEOMIN® may be right for you. Talk to Dr. Haber to discuss the benefits and risks of treatment. 

What To Expect During Treatment

During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, Dr. Haber will inject XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; however, your Dr. Haber may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort. 

When Will You See Results

In clinical trials, some patients observed 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.
