Prescription XEOMIN® is used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe “frown lines” between the eyes, in addition to other areas of the face.
Squinting and frowning causes the muscles between your brows to contract, causing furrows in the skin. As you age and your skin loses elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN® acts on muscle nerve endings to prevent muscle fibers from contracting, temporarily reducing the frown lines between your eyes or in treated areas.
During treatment, which usually takes about 10 – 20 minutes, XEOMIN® is injected into targeted muscles. No anesthesia is required, although we can use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
You may see visible smoothing as early as three to four days after treatment. Results typically last up to three months, although actual results may last significantly longer or shorter.
