Like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is a great product for temporarily improving the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. The injectable contains the same active ingredient as Botox (incobotulinumtoxinA) and works in a similar fashion.
As skin ages, facial expressions cause permanent lines to form on the forehead. Xeomin blocks the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions in the face and frown lines are softened. Xeomin is made by Merz Pharmaceuticals and is FDA-approved.
Areas of Treatment
- Vertical frown lines (Glabella)

- Forehead (horizontal lines)
How Does The Xeomin Procedure Work?
The Xeomin procedure is simple, fast, and minimally painful with no anesthesia required. Xeomin is injected into the wrinkled muscle with a fine needle. When injected, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result the muscle relaxes. Patients typically see results with 2-14 days and the effects can last up to four months.
