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. 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.
With short treatment times and little to no downtime, you can have your XEOMIN® treatment without missing too much out of your day. You will notice significant improvements in your appearance over the next few weeks. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
