XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an intramuscular prescription medication that is injected to enhance the appearance of frown lines in between the eyebrows. It contains a protein called botulinum toxin type A which has been purified from a bacterium called clostridium botulinum. It can effectively reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and other creases found on the face.
How does Xeomin works?
Whenever you frown or squint, the muscles found between your brows tend to contract thereby causing the skin to fold and furrow. With time, as you age, your skin starts to lose its elasticity. Repeated frowning and squinting can cause persistent frown lines on your xeomin-iStock 000019361528 Largeface.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN cosmetic treatment is botulinum toxin type A which works on the nerve endings within your muscles. It prevents contraction of the muscle fibers which are known to cause frown lines. Once these contractions have been reduced, XEOMIN can effectively reduce the number of lines found between your brows and the forehead. However, results of XEOMIN are temporary.
Is Xeomin a proven method?
Several clinical trials were carried out, each involving 547 people. The participants received 20 units of XEOMIN injection and the results were measured on a 4 point scale. Any patient who showed an improvement on 2 point was considered to be a ‘responder’. On the 30th day of the clinical trials, it was apparent that the higher success rate (60 percent and above) was a result of XEOMIN as compared to 0 percent of the placebo.
Based on these trials, the FDA approved XEOMIN to be used for cosmetic purposes in 2011.
Is Xeomin right for me?
XEOMIN is suitable for adults who have moderate to severe glabeller lines. Dr Max Grishkevich can advise you based on your individual case.
If you are allergic to botulinum toxin or to any other ingredients found in this drug, never take XEOMIN. If you had experienced an allergic reaction or suffered from a skin infection at the planned point of injection, then you should avoid using XEOMIN.
What should I do prior to Xeomin treatment?
Before you receive XEOMIN cosmetic treatment, you have to make sure that you consult Dr. Max Grishkevich and disclose all (if any) of the medical conditions that you may have.

If you have received any botulinum product in the past (usually within the last four months), then you should disclose that too. The importance of this cannot be overemphasized; you have to tell everything about what medications you have had and when.
What should I expect during Xeomin cosmetic treatment?
The whole treatment takes typically between 10 to 20 minutes. Dr. Max Grishkevich will inject XEOMIN directly into your muscles on the forehead that are responsible for causing frown lines. The treatment does not require any anesthesia; nonetheless, to ensure maximum comfort, you may be offered a cold pack or a topical anesthetic.

Xeomin VS Beauty injections: what makes Xeomin different?
