FDA APPROVED. CLINICALLY PROVEN.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN® are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
Not all neurotoxins are the same, despite what patients may think.
XEOMIN® is unique. It is the only clinically proven anti-wrinkle injection purified to remove proteins unnecessary for treatment.*
XEOMIN is indicated for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adult patients.
*Studies have not been performed to determine whether the presence or absence of accessory proteins has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy.
Mechanism of Action
XEOMIN® is a Botulinum Toxin Type A that blocks transmission of acetylcholine (ACh) from neuron to muscle
This inhibits muscle contraction and causes muscle paresis (weakness) or paralysis
Botulinum Toxin Type A only affects "cholinergic neurons" (neurons which use acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter)
Botulinum Toxin Type A effects dissipate after ~ 3 months because new SNAP-25 proteins take 3 months to be synthesized.
