If you want to keep your facial expressions while getting rid of your expression lines and wrinkles, a neurotoxin may solve your problem. Xeomin®, the purest form of botulinum toxin, differs in small but important ways from similar products like Botox®. It targets wrinkles between the brows but also works on other areas of expression lines.

Xeomin® is a temporary solution to lines and wrinkles between the brows, also called the glabellar area. It also works on areas like crow’s feet and forehead lines. These expression lines occur when the muscles underneath pull on the skin. This happens most often in areas of repetitive motion, like smile and frown lines. Xeomin® can stop the muscle movements to let lines and wrinkles relax away.
Xeomin® uses a uniquely purified version of botulism toxin. It does not contain other ingredients present in other botulism toxin products. While those ingredients are harmless, they may affect how the product works for different people. Xeomin® works by blocking the communication from the nerves that signal your facial muscles. When these nerves stop sending signals to the muscles, they stop pulling on the skin. The muscle and skin relax, leaving you looking younger.
Xeomin® treats crow’s feet, forehead lines, and lines between the brows. These expression lines become deeper over time as long as the muscles continue to pull on the skin. Like similar neurotoxins, Xeomin® only blocks the nerve signals temporarily. After Xeomin® wears off, your facial muscles will return to normal. Some people start getting Xeomin® at a relatively young age in order to prevent expression lines from forming.

Results start to appear after three to four days and will continue to develop over about 30 days. You will notice the treated areas become smoother, and the deep wrinkles fade away. Many people find that they look younger, more refreshed, and more relaxed.
There is no downtime with Xeomin®. You may have some swelling or bruising around the injection area that will fade in a day or two. You can go back to your normal activities right after your treatment.
Most people make good candidates for Xeomin®. It can work well for people who have stopped responding well to a different neurotoxin product, and for some people, it makes the best choice for treatment. Women who are pregnant or people with certain neuromuscular disorders should not have any neurotoxin treatments.
