Beauty starts with a SMART TOXIN.
FDA APPROVED. CLINICALLY PROVEN.
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.
STATE-OF-THE-ART MANUFACTURING PROCESS.
Xeomin® is made through a unique precision manufacturing process called XTRACT Technology™, that uses two filtration steps to isolate the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the complexing/unnecessary proteins that don’t play an active role in treatment. Xeomin® is a double filtered neurotoxin. Head-to-head studies evaluating the relative risk of immunogenicity due to the presence or absence of complexing/unnecessary proteins have not been performed.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
- Xeomin® is a Botulinum Toxin Type A that blocks transmission of acetylcholine (ACh) from neuron to muscle
- This inhibits muscle contraction and causes muscle paresis (weakness) or paralysis
- Botulinum Toxin Type A only affects “cholinergic neurons” (neurons which use acetylcholine as a neurotransmitter)
- Botulinum Toxin Type A effects dissipate after ~ 3 months because new SNAP-25 proteins take 3 months to be synthesized.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your provider will inject Xeomin® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required.
