XEOMIN® the treatment of choice for reducing, and temporarily improving the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes in adults.
How does XEOMIN® work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as the 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– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the lines of your forehead between your brows.
When will I see results from XEOMIN®?
Most clients begin to notice an onset within 5 days of treatment but typically a maximal onset is seen within 7-10 days. Maximum effect occurs at 30 days. If you do not see the results you desire after one week you may need additional units.

Is treatment with XEOMIN® painful?
XEOMIN® is injected using a very fine needle. There is minimal discomfort and no recovery time necessary. The entire procedure takes approximately 10-15 minutes. The discomfort is minimal and the edge can be taken off with an ice compress just prior to injection. Bruising may occur – avoid anti-platelets (aspirin-like products) or anti-coagulants (blood thinners) for 1 week prior to treatment to minimize bruising at the injection site.
