Frown lines form when you use the muscles in your face to make different expressions. Over time, the combination of aging skin and repeated expressions can cause frown lines to appear. If you are tired of looking in the mirror and seeing the fine lines become more prominent, then contact Natura MedSpa to learn about Xeomin® (Zeo-min) and how it can help you.

What it Is
Xeomin® is the first new generation neuromodulator and wrinkle relaxer. Xeomin® injections are used to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles such as moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It is made using an advanced manufacturing process that isolates the active ingredient and removes any components that are not necessary for the therapeutic effect.
How does Xeomin® work?
Xeomin®, also known as incobotulinumtoxinA, works like other neuromodulators such as BOTOX® and Dysport®, which cause the muscles to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. Botulinum toxin type A is the active ingredient which is found in Xeomin®. This toxin is isolated from a strain of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum and it is an Acetylcholine release inhibitor and neuromuscular blocking agent. This means that it acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, it can temporarily reduce expression lines like the ones on your forehead in between your eyebrows.
Why Choose Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is for patients who want natural-looking results with a purified product. It is the only clinically proven, anti-wrinkle injection that is uniquely purified to remove unnecessary proteins. It is precisely manufactured using advanced technology to isolate the therapeutic component. This may mean that there is less risk of developing antibodies against Xeomin® than other available neuromodulators. The body develops antibodies in response to a foreign invader and attacks. In theory, antibodies could prevent a neurotoxin from having an optimal effect.
Efficacy and Patient Satisfaction of Xeomin® vs. BOTOX®
In a randomized, double-blind trial, the efficacy of Xeomin® was compared to BOTOX® in 250 healthy female patients. Xeomin® demonstrated comparable efficacy and duration for up to four months. Furthermore, out of 10,000 patients surveyed, 90% of them said that they would use Xeomin® again. Studies in medical literature do not show any significant difference between the two in terms of the overall effect, the onset of action, duration, or adverse reactions. At Natura MedSpa, we have not seen any difference between the two and offer both Xeomin® and BOTOX® injections to give our patients a preservative-free choice for wrinkle reduction.
Are Xeomin® Injections Safe?
Xeomin® has an established efficacy and safety record with 15 years of clinical data and global experience. It has a proven safety record through extensive research and testing that includes two randomized, double-blind, multicenter, clinical trials. Europeans have also been using Xeomin® since 2005 and it is approved in 20 countries around the world.
Is Xeomin® FDA Approved?
Yes, Merz, the company that manufactures Xeomin®, received FDA approval of Xeomin® injections in 2011, and it is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lines in adult patients.
