Xeomin® is FDA approved for horizontal lines on the forehead. It is similar to Botox®, but some patients prefer this treatment. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers Xeomin® for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an injectable anti-aging treatment that helps with dynamic wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. These wrinkles develop on the forehead in a horizontal pattern.
Benefits of Xeomin®
Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugated and/or procerus muscle activity in adults.
Xeomin® was proven effective in two clinical trials of more than 540 adult patients in the treatment of glabellar frown lines. 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 two-grade improvement on a four-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 Does Xeomin® Work?
Wrinkles develop for several reasons. Lower levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid allow the skin to collapse inward. Loose skin sags downward, which will give the appearance of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form when movement of certain muscles pinch the skin. Xeomin® temporarily paralyzes the muscles which allows the skin to relax. The result is a softening of lines and wrinkles.
What to Expect from Xeomin®
Treatment usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes. The nurse injector or doctor will inject Xeomin® for injection, for intramuscular use, into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required.
Xeomin® should be administered no more frequently than every three months. Results may last up to four months, and individual results may vary.
