XEOMIN® is a botulinum injection, similar to BOTOX® or Dysport™, which FDA recently approved that for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) between the eyebrows in adult patients.
How does XEOMIN work?
XEOMIN is injected into muscles to decrease their activity. XEOMIN blocks the release of a chemical messenger—acetylcholine—that conveys the signal from nerve terminals and causes muscle fibers to contract. Not all terminals are affected by botulinum toxin, so the muscles can still contract, just less forcefully.
Are all botulinum toxin products the same?
No, not all botulinum toxin products are the same, but they have a similar mode of action. The dosages between them can vary, but the effects are comparable.
