Botulinum
 
Botulinum injectables are substances used to soften expression lines such as those in the frown, forehead & crowsfeet areas. Over time, as this treatment is performed throught the years, there is progressive and lasting improvement of these lines. Furthermore, Botulinum products can be used to soften the anterior neck bands and cause a modest lift of the jawline, as part of a procedure called the Nefertiti Lift. Similarly, Botulinum can be injected around the lips, particularly the upper lip, to soften smoker's lines, and it may also be used to correct the gummy smile and raise the tip of the nose in some patients. The applications of Botulinum for cosmetic purposes on the face are thus multiple, and when skillfully applied they can lead to smooth facial skin and a youthfull appearance.

What is Xeomin®?

Xeomin® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.

 

Xeomin® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. 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® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.

 

What Can I Expect During Treatment?

During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) for injection, for intramuscular use, into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; however, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.

 

When Can I Expect To See 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 occurred at 30 days. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
