A Highly Purified Neurotoxin
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin called incobotulinumtoxinA. Merz, the maker of XEOMIN, uses a proprietary purification process to remove accessory proteins from botulinum toxin A to make XEOMIN. Being FDA approved, Xeomin can be used both on-label and off-label to treat the same facial lines treated by Botox and Dysport, including frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.
How It Works
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions. So frown lines are softened.
How Does Xeomin® Work?
State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Process
XEOMIN® is made through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the “accessory proteins” that don’t play an active role in treatment. The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin called incobotulinumtoxinA. XEOMIN® is a highly purified neurotoxin.
