How it Works

Frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet form when facial expressions cause the muscles under the skin to contract. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators, such as Xeomin Cosmetic, block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions, temporarily improving the appearance of upper facial lines including forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What treatment effects can I expect with Xeomin Cosmetic and when?
    • All neuromodulators generally work in the same way to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, works on the nerve endings to reduce muscle activity resulting in the temporary improvement in the appearance of upper facial lines including forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines.

      The muscle relaxation is usually observed within 2-5 days, and the peak effect is reached in about 2-4 weeks. Xeomin Cosmetic is clinically proven to last an average of 9-16 weeks, however, every patient’s treatment results will vary.3,4
  • What can I expect when having a Xeomin Cosmetic treatment?
    • Like all medicines, Xeomin Cosmetic can cause side effects, although few people get them. Side effects may be restricted to the area around the injection site (e.g. localised muscle weakness, local pain, inflammation, pins and needles, reduced sense of touch, tenderness, swelling (general), swelling of the soft tissue, skin redness, itching, localised infection, bleeding and/or bruising). Flu-like symptoms have been reported. Seek immediate medical attention if swallowing, speech or breathing problems arise. This is not a complete list of side effects. For any unexpected effects while taking Xeomin Cosmetic, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
  • What can I expect after having a Xeomin Cosmetic treatment?
    • The most commonly reported side effects include headache, swelling around the eye/eyelid, changes in the shape of the eyebrow, including raised eyebrow, drooping of the eyelid, pain, bleeding and/or bruising, and redness near the injection site, dry eye, heavy feeling of frontal area, reduced sense of touch, facial asymmetry, and nausea. Uncommon side effects include heavy feeling of the eyelid/eyebrow, fatigue, muscle twitching, blurred vision, and inflammation of the nose and throat (nasopharyngitis). Immediately tell your doctor if you experience any difficulties in swallowing, speech and/or breathing while on Xeomin Cosmetic. These symptoms, ranging from very mild to severe, can persist for 1-3 weeks or longer after injection. This is not a complete list of side effects. For any unexpected effects while taking Xeomin Cosmetic, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

      You should not drive or engage in other potentially hazardous activities if drooping eyelids, weakness (asthenia), muscle weakness, dizziness, or vision disorder occur. If in doubt ask your doctor for advice.
  • What should I tell my healthcare provider before treatment?
    • Before you use Xeomin Cosmetic talk to your doctor or pharmacist if: · you suffer from any type of bleeding disorder · you receive substances that prevent the blood from clotting (e.g. coumarin, heparin, acetylsalicylic acid, clopidogrel) · you suffer from pronounced weakness or decreased muscle volume in the muscle where you will receive the injection. · you suffer from a disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which can lead to generalized muscle decrease. · you suffer from any disease that disturbs the interaction between nerves and skeletal muscles (peripheral neuromuscular dysfunction). · you have or have had swallowing difficulties. · you have had problems with injections of Botulinum toxin type A in the past. · you are due to have surgery.

      Tell your doctor if you are taking other medicines, including any you have bought at your pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop. If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, Xeomin Cosmetic should not be used.
  • Will I look unnatural after my Xeomin Cosmetic treatment?
    • Xeomin Cosmetic may only be used by health care professionals experienced in the application of Botulinum toxin. The optimum dosage, frequency and number of injection sites in the treated muscle will be chosen by your doctor individually for you. The results of initial treatment with Xeomin Cosmetic should be evaluated and may lead to dose adjustment until the desired therapeutic effect is achieved. Treatments should generally be more than 3 months apart. If you have the impression that the effect of Xeomin Cosmetic is too strong or too weak, let your doctor know. In cases where no therapeutic effect is apparent, alternative therapies should be taken into consideration.
