What Is Xeomin®?

Xeomin is an injectable medication derived from botulinum toxin. It is most commonly used to treat moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead. Being a neurotoxin, it works on your nervous system. Specifically, by temporarily inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from certain nerves, it induces paralysis in the muscles of your face preventing them from contracting into a frown or furrowed brow.

What Can it Treat?

Botulinum toxin has a wide range of medical uses, from treating overactive bladders to reducing the severity of muscle spasms. However, its most popular use is cosmetic. Xeomin effectively minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines, and skin folds by paralyzing the muscle tissue at the injection site, effectively relaxing the tense muscles that cause frown lines, also referred to as glabellar lines.  

It also treats:


Relaxing the muscles of your forehead, Xeomin smoothens the skin on your forehead and between your eyebrows, erasing the signs of aging.  By relaxing your facial muscles, it also helps prevent further wrinkle development. The treatment is safe and effective when administered by a professional and is quick to administer.  You will see results quickly and there is minimal recovery time. 


Most clients will notice the effects about 4 days after the injection. Redness and swelling at the injection site should subside after about 72 hours. Generally, the results of botulinum toxin can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. It is safe to return for repeat treatments as you see the effects begin to fade.

FAQs about Xeomin®

Xeomin, a potent neurotoxin, is injected directly into specific facial muscles in order to cause muscle paralysis. There are various medical reasons why a doctor would want to temporarily paralyze muscle tissue,  from treating muscle spasms to overactive bladders. However, it is most commonly used for cosmetic procedures. By inhibiting the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, it paralyzes the muscles in the forehead and reduces the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles.

If you are a healthy adult who wants to improve your appearance, look younger and reduce moderate to severe frown lines, then Xeomin® is right for you.

Common side-effects of injections include: 

  • Neck pain 
  • Dry eyes
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Swollen or bruised eyelids
  • Blinking less than usual
  • Pain, redness, or swelling around the injection site
  • Cold-like symptoms, including congestion, coughing, and sore throat

Generally, injections are considered safe for adults in good health and who do not have a history of allergic reactions to botulinum toxins.

Though both are derived from botulinum toxin, Xeomin and Botox have two main differences. Xeomin is considered a purer, “naked” form of the toxin, whereas Botox is composed of both the botulinum toxin derivative and other inactive protein fillers. 

Additionally, Xeomin can be stored at room temperature, while Botox requires refrigeration..

When used for cosmetic treatments, both are considered effective. However, according to one double-blind study, Xeomin worked faster and lasted longer than Botox and Dysport.

Avoiding certain things post-procedure greatly reduces your risk of experiencing complications from treatment, such as excessive bruising and swelling or infection. 

During the first four hours after the procedure, avoid:

  • Lying down or reclining your head for 4 hours—keep your head vertical
  • Applying makeup
  • Scrubbing or scratching the treated area

During the first 24 to 48 hours afterward, avoid:

  • Laser, IPL, and skin-tightening treatments
  • Vigorous exercise
  • Hot showers or baths
  • Alcohol
  • Lying or sleeping on the treated area 

For two weeks after your procedure, avoid:

  • Extensive sun exposure. Apply sunscreen when outdoors.
  • Saunas and steam baths 

For additional information and advice, contact one of our medical specialists.

Dysport is considered just as effective as Botox or Xeomin in treating frown lines and wrinkles. However, you may require a little over twice the amount of Dysport as compared with Xeomin to achieve the same cosmetic results.
