XEOMIN® is a uniquely purified anti-wrinkle injection
Like Botox, Xeomin is a botulinum toxin type A, which is approved to treat wrinkles like the “11” lines between the brows and frown lines. Botox and Xeomin work by the exact same mechanism, which is blocking the signals from nerves to muscles, causing the muscles to relax and wrinkles to smooth out. The primary difference between the products is that Botox has an accompanying, inactive protein, while Xeomin does not have additives. Xeomin is a purified form of the neurotoxin; it’s manufactured in such a way that it removes accessory proteins from the active ingredient.

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. 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®– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin® can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
- Smoothes the appearance of wrinkles in between the eyebrows, around the eyes, in the forehead, or around the mouth
- Blocks the signal from the nerve to muscles, causing the muscle to relax and preventing further wrinkling
- Short treatment time, fast recovery time, and noticeable results right away
- Less likely to cause allergic reactions due to the absence of added fillers
Before receiving treatment with Xeomin®, you should tell your injector about all of your medical conditions, including whether you have a disease that affects your muscles and nerves, have allergies to any botulinum toxin product, or have experienced any side effect from any other botulinum toxin in the past. In addition, tell your injector about your medical history and all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your injector if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last four months or in the past. Be sure your injector knows exactly which product(s) you received and when you received them.
You may begin to see 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.
