When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows 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, XEOMIN® acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, it can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
It contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and received FDA approval for use in lines between your eyebrows in 2011.
The treatment can take 10-20 minutes. Effects may be seen in three to four days, and last about three months. Results may vary.
