What is Xeomin?
Xeomin® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes, crows feet, forehead, and other areas need in adults over 21.
Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Xeomin is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA. When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic fine lines. 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– is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
How does Xeomin work?
The Botulin injections cause the injected muscles to "relax" so that they no longer contract and cause these fine lines and deep wrinkles to form. Xeomin also blocks nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and wrinkle free. The muscles that went untreated will contract as usual and leave normal facial expressions unaffected.
How long does Xeomin last?
Typically the effects of Xeomin last about 3 months, and fade away gradually. Following several treatments of Xeomin the results may last up to 4 months.
Before Xeomin treatments:
Before Xeomin the patient should consider stopping all medications, vitamins and herbal remedies that thin the blood. Stopping these medications will help to eliminate any bruising which may occur at the injection sites.
Post Care for Xeomin:
After your Xeomin treatment, you should stay upright and refrain from massaging the treated area for four hours. For the first 24 hours, the patient should be careful not to apply pressure to the area and be particularly careful while sleeping.
