Xeomin is an injectable botulinum toxin used to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles in the face. This non-invasive treatment is administered in small amounts, where it helps to relax the facial muscles responsible for brow furrows, smile lines and other deep-set wrinkles. Many people request Xeomin injections because they wish to regain a youthful appearance and soften facial contours that may have been altered due to the aging process, too much UV exposure or lifestyle factors like smoking. Xeomin is often referred to as the “naked” botulinum toxin because it lacks additives. In fact, it is this lack of additives that reduces the likelihood of the body rejecting treatments and developing an adverse reaction.
Did you know…
that Xeomin has been proven effective for the treatment of glabellar lines by two different double-blind clinical trials? More than 540 random patients were evaluated at several different treatment centers. One group was given a placebo and the other Xeomin. After 30 days, the control group showed zero improvement as opposed to a 60 percent and 48 percent aesthetic improvement in those who received 20 units of Xeomin.
