XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into facial muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
When you squint or frown, your muscles 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.
Treatment time usually takes about 10-20 minutes You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after the injections. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
