What is XEOMIN?
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. XEOMIN contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum
What should I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes, your practitioner will inject XEOMIN into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required.
What are the potential results?
In clinical trials, some patients observed visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The maximum effect typically occurs at 30 days. The typical duration of effect is up to 3 months, but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
How does XEOMIN work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows 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 on your forehead between your brows.
Is XEOMIN proven?
XEOMIN was proven effective in two randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled clinical trials of 547 healthy, adult patients. The average age of patients in the study was 46 years. Patients received 20 Units of XEOMIN and were classified as responders if they had a 2-grade improvement on a 4-point scale as assessed by the physician and patient. Using these criteria, treatment success was higher with XEOMIN than placebo on Day 30 in both studies (60% and 48% vs. 0% for placebo in both studies). Based on these trials, XEOMIN received FDA approval for aesthetic use in 2011.
How do I know if XEOMIN is right for me?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines, XEOMIN may be right for you. Talk to your doctor to discuss the benefits and risks of treatment. Do not take XEOMIN if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in XEOMIN. You should also not take XEOMIN if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
