This cosmetic injectable blocks impulses from the nerves to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines.
Similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin treats aging skin by temporarily paralyzing specific facial muscles, preventing them from contracting and thus producing unsightly wrinkles.
Crow’s feet, forehead lines and furrows between the brows develop after years of smiling, laughing and frowning. Xeomin works by temporarily easing the muscles that cause wrinkles, creating a smooth and relaxed overall appearance.
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.
Within two to seven days after your Xeomin injections, you will begin to see a visible improvement in the appearance of your wrinkles. Depending on the areas you treated, you can expect wrinkles around your eyes and forehead to be dramatically reduced, producing an overall smoother and more relaxed facial expression.
As there is virtually no downtime associated with Xeomin injections, you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately. However, you will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and laying down immediately after your treatment to ensure an optimal result.
