What is XEOMIN?
XEOMIN® (IncobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, is a prescription medication 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 Clostridium botulinum.
How Does XEOMIN 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.
How do I know if XEOMIN is right for me?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines, XEOMIN® may be right for you.
What can I expect during my treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor 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 physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
When can I expect to 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.
