Xeomin® is a form of botulinum toxin type A that can be injected into the muscles just beneath the skin to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. Particularly effective in treating deep frown lines between the eyebrows, Xeomin® has received FDA approval.
Like other types of botulinum treatments, Xeomin® prevents muscles from contracting. However, Xeomin® is different from its predecessors in that it contains no additives, which may decrease a patient’s antibody reaction. If the immune system is not creating antibodies to fight it, the treatment will be much more successful.
Results of Xeomin® treatment are typically evident in one week and last between three and six months.
