BOTOX®/Dysport/Xeomin® are used to improve the appearance of “worry lines,” “frown lines,” “crow’s feet,” “forehead wrinkles” and other so-called dynamic wrinkles. To inactivate frown lines, botulinum toxin is injected into these muscles. Botulinum toxin works by temporarily weakening these tiny facial muscles in a very precise manner. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while untreated facial muscles contract normally, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected. Botox was first shown to be beneficial for dynamic wrinkles by neurologists and ophthalmologists treating other conditions. Today, paralleling an exponential increase in our knowledge of the science of aging, inactivation of frown lines has emerged as an exciting treatment for ameliorating the visible signs of aging.

How BOTOX® cosmetic works
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.

More about Xeomin®
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 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.
