After Botox and Dysport came Xeomin.
Approved by the FDA for the treatment
of severe frown lines and Xeomin is used
by many people worldwide. Xeomin
(incobotulinumtoxinA) is a injected into
muscles and used to temporarily improve
the appearance of moderate to severe
frown lines between the eyebrows
(glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin contains
botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified
from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum
While all three (Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin) provide similar results, they have important differences. Unlike Botox Cosmetic and Dysport, Xeomin does not contain additives. As a result, a patient’s likelihood of developing antibodies may decrease.
How does Xeomin Work?
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.
What is Xeomin used to treat?
Xeomin injections are primarily used in the upper third of the face. Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes (”crow’s feet”) respond favorably to Xeomin.
When can I see my results and how long will they last?
Although you may see a marked improvement, a treatment with Xeomin does not make you look like you’ve “had work done”. You can expect to see results within 3 to 10 days after your treatment. The visible results will last 3 to 4 months, after which the lines gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance if no further injections are given.
Will I look fake or plastic?
Looking plastic or overdone is a common concern among individuals considering an in-office treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. There are steps wecan take to make you feel more comfortable with this. We will first have a detailed consultation with all of our clients prior to injections. We will talk through every concern you may have, until you feel comfortable. Dr. Sharlow, who is experienced in facial anatomy, can determine the right options for you.
Things to expect with Xeomin treatment:
• Real, noticeable results—you may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for treatment of moderate to severe frown lines. Results may vary.
• Some clients report that being injected with Xeomin feels like a pinch.
• The actual injection time takes on average about 15 minutes.
• You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet.
• Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your provider’s office.
