Before and After
Are Xeomin® injections safe?
Xeomin® has been widely used throughout the world and is proven to be highly safe and reliable. With the exception of pregnancy, asthma conditions, and those with central nervous system disease, this effective cosmetic procedure is suitable for most users.
What common side effects can I expect from using Xeomin®?
All medications have some side effects. With Xeomin®, the side effects are generally very mild. Temporary bruising in the injection site is the most common side effect. Some people may notice temporary weakness of muscles or discomfort. However, since the effects of Xeomin® are reversible, any side effects are temporary and won’t last longer than a couple weeks.
How is the Xeomin® treatment performed and how long do the effects last?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial movements are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. XEOMIN® is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
