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. Xeomin® is a highly purified neurotoxin.
Studies have not been performed to determine whether the presence or absence of accessory proteins has a long-term effect on safety or efficacy.
How It Works
When you squint or frown, the muscles contract causing the skin to furrow and fold. Gradually, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent upper facial lines.
Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened. IncobotulinumtoxinA is the active ingredient in XEOMIN®. It acts on the nerve endings in muscle tissue to reduce the ability of the muscle to contract.
