XEOMIN

®

AN AGE-DEFYING TREATMENT DESIGNED TO MAKE YOU LOOK AND FEEL YOUNGER

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. Studies have not been performed to determine whether the presence or absence of accessory proteins has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy.

Xeomin®, like Botox® and Dysport®, are commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles include the forehead lines, fine lines around the eyes, and the furrows between the eyebrows.  Xeomin® works by targeting the wrinkle-causing facial muscles in order to eliminate these dynamic lines. Xeomin® can provide a very natural appearance and dramatic improvement in your appearance.

What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a medically derived subunit of botulinum toxin type a called into botulinum toxin a. Xeomin® weakens the muscles into which it is placed, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is the difference between Xeomin®, Botox®, and Dysport®?
On a molecular level, Xeomin® is different from Botox® and Dysport® in that it does not contain any protein additives when packaged. The potential benefit of this is mainly for the rare patient who stopped responding to Botox® treatments because of the development of antibodies to the proteins.

 

How does Xeomin® work?
Xeomin® works by weakening the muscles of facial expression that insert onto the surface of the skin. Weakening the pull of these muscles on the skin causes the visible wrinkles to flatten out. Over time, cumulative benefits are observed as the skin remodels without the negative influence of the wrinkle-creating facial muscles.

 

What areas can be treated with Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is used to treat dynamic facial wrinkles. Areas most commonly treated by Xeomin® include crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), worry lines between the eyebrows, and the lines across the forehead.

How long does it take for Xeomin® to work?
The effects of Xeomin® are usually seen within 5 days. It will take up to 10 days to see the final results from the treatment.

How long does Xeomin last?
Xeomin® treatment lasts anywhere from 3-6 months.

While wrinkles are a natural byproduct of aging that is to be expected at some point, the formation of creases and finer lines around the forehead and eyes often occurs before people are ready to see them. In addition, these wrinkles can give you a tired or worried appearance even when you don’t feel that way. Fortunately, there are nonsurgical options to reduce these wrinkles as early as they begin to form.
