Xeomin® is used for the treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. Xeomin® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. This relaxation generally lasts for 4-6 months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.** Xeomin® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. This is done in a way to not alter your natural expression and features.
Xeomin® is brought to you by Merz Aesthetics, a leading pharmaceutical company in the United States focusing primarily on the treatment of dermatological and aesthetic conditions. Merz Aesthetics also produces Radiesse®, a popular wrinkle filler used around the world. Xeomin® has been used for years in over 20 countries and is now available in the USA. It is an FDA approved drug and competes with BOTOX and Dysport®, which also uses the Botulinum A protein. According to the Dermatology Times, “Xeomin is unit to unit equivalent with Botox.” This means the number of units of Xeomin that will be injected will be equivalent to what you previously used with Botox. Xeomin® is a formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Xeomin® may be comparable to your first use. You should not be treated with Xeomin® more frequently than every 90 days.
