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.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT XEOMIN
HOW DO I KNOW IF XEOMIN® IS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe frown lines, Xeomin® may be right for you.
Do not use Xeomin® if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in Xeomin®. You should also not use Xeomin® if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
WILL I LOOK OVERDONE?
Looking plastic or overdone is a common concern among individuals considering an in-office treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. There are steps you can take to make you feel more comfortable. First, let us know what you are trying to achieve. We have experience in facial anatomy and can determine the right options for you. Individual results may vary.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, we will inject Xeomin® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required; however, we may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
