What is Xeomin®?
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
How is Xeomin® different from other neurotoxins?
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.
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 of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
The following areas can benefit from Xeomin® treatments:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lateral and horizontal brow lines
- Worry lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Wrinkles around and under the eyes
- Vertical lip lines
- “Bunny” lines on the nose
- Neck bands
- Mouth corners

Neurotoxins when placed properly creates a refreshed and rested appearance. When neurotoxin treatments are combined with strategically placed dermal fillers the result is a liquid facelift!
