XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is used to:
• treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults.
• temporarily improve the look 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.
What is it for?
XEOMIN® is indicated for intramuscular use. It is a prescription medication that is injected into facial muscles for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) in adults.
What does it do?
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. 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.
What is a XEOMIN® injection session like?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, you will receive injections of XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) into the muscles in your forehead area that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; however, we 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.
How frequently can I have XEOMIN® injection?
XEOMIN® should be administered no more frequently than every three months.
