XEOMIN is the newest “frown fixer,” now available at EsthetixMD med spa. When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. As your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines, also known as dynamic lines. XEOMIN is a cosmetic injectable that can help.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat glabellar lines – the “11” between your eyebrows. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
While the three are similar, XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) does not carry the proteins present in the other products. This lessens the possibility your body will react to treatment by forming antibodies that can render the product ineffective. (This is typically seen only in patients who have used botulinum toxin for an extended period.)
To introduce this new product to the marketplace, the manufacturer priced XEOMIN lower than competing injectables. Clients also like the quicker effect they see with XEOMIN. Our clinicians can use more than one of the compounds in a single session to meet your goals. Our on-staff RN or doctor can advise you on the best approach based on your preference and injection locations.
XEOMIN takes effect within two to three days after injection, with results lasting up to four months.
