Imperfections due to muscle movement can add to the appearance and formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This issue is usually addressed by treating certain muscles with Botox® or Xeomin® brand botulin toxins to temporarily prevent a full range of movement. Inhibiting motion allows the area to rest, which can slow the rate of creasing due to repetitive muscle movement.
Treatment options that address muscle movement and laxity are generally injectable toxins such as Botox® or Xeomin®.
What is XEOMIN and how does it work?
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable treatment containing tiny amounts of highly purified botulinum toxin protein, which is refined from Clostridium botulinum toxin type A.
Botulinum toxin type A acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. XEOMIN targets repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting by temporarily reducing muscle movement, which reduces the formation and proliferation of lines. By reducing these types of muscle contractions, XEOMIN can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead, between your brows.
Is XEOMIN safe?
XEOMIN is an FDA-approved treatment used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
What are results like with XEOMIN?*
When administered by a master injector, such as Dr. Anita Dormer, XEOMIN results look natural*. Dr. Dormer has over 20 years experience as a Critical Care physician, making her uniquely qualified to treat skin and aging. Dr. Dormer has been providing XEOMIN treatments to patients, and performs XEOMIN treatments regularly.
Does XEOMIN hurt?
Most patients find that XEOMIN treatments are quick, with minimal discomfort. However if you are nervous about treatment, we provide free topical numbing by request.
When will I see results?*
Most patients will observe visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The full effect of treatment can be accessed at about 7 to 10 days post-treatment. The typical duration of effect is up to 3 months*, but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
