Xeomin temporarily treats frown linesWhat is XEOMIN?

Xeomin is a Botulinum Toxin Type A that is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows seen at frown, in adults under 65 years, when the severity of these lines has an important psychological impact for the patient.

Xeomin is clinically proven to give consistent, targeted results that are visible within just two to three days, with effects that can last for up to four months.


What is different about XEOMIN?

Xeomin is pure and is free of complexing proteins due to precision technology. The pure formulation allows for patients to achieve natural-looking results with the assurance of safety and tolerability.


How does XEOMIN work?

Xeomin relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear. It works by blocking the nerve impulses in the injected muscles, preventing muscle tension and leading to temporary and reversible relaxation. The visible result is the temporary improvement of glabellar lines.

Each injection takes only seconds and the whole procedure can be done in around 10 to 20 minutes.


What is botulinum toxin?

Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin type A—the active ingredient in XEOMIN—is produced commercially from C. botulinum serotype A.


Are all botulinum toxin products the same?

Not all botulinum toxin products are the same. This is reflected in the unique names for each product. The dose of XEOMIN may be different from other botulinum toxin products.



What is a XEOMIN treatment like?

XEOMIN is injected directly into the affected muscles. The injection plan varies from person to person, depending on the number of muscles involved and the extent of their involvement.

Xeomin is injected into muscles to decrease their activity. Xeomin blocks the release of a chemical messenger—acetylcholine—that conveys the signal from nerve terminals and causes muscle fibers to contract. Not all terminals are affected by botulinum toxin, so the muscles can still contract, just less forcefully. This allows the muscles to contract more normally.

How long does XEOMIN last?

Everyone is different. However, clinical studies suggest that it generally takes 7 days before most people begin to feel improvement. The effect generally lasts up to 12 weeks, but the effect in individual patients may be significantly longer or shorter.


What are the most common side effects of XEOMIN?

In the treatment of blepharospasm, the 5 most common side effects were drooping eyelid, dry eye, dry mouth, diarrhea, and headache.

In the treatment of cervical dystonia, the 5 most common side effects were difficulty swallowing, neck pain, muscle weakness, injection site pain, and muscle/joint pain.
