SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Nov. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Xeomin was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) July 20, 2011 for severe frown lines or "11's" between the eyebrows. As of November 1, 2011, it is now available to the public for use.  Xeomin, which is manufactured by Merz Aesthetics, has been used by more than 240,000 people worldwide. It is now approved for glabellar lines use in almost 20 countries.

The approval of Xeomin is based on the results of two pivotal U.S. clinical trials involving 16 investigational sites and included 547 healthy adult patients. In both studies, Xeomin significantly improved the appearance of glabellar lines 30 days following the first injection, when compared to placebo. Xeomin is the only botulinum toxin currently approved in the U.S. that does not require refrigeration prior to reconstitution.            

Xeomin works by softening lines and wrinkles, by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles, and as a result, the targeted muscle cannot contract. The effects of Xeomin occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox in terms of both onset and duration of actions.  Xeomin should not be used interchangeably with other botulinum products.

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin have a lot in common, but they also have some important differences. Unlike its predecessors, Xeomin does not need to be refrigerated. This may be an advantage when it comes to distribution. What's more, Xeomin is "naked." There are no additives — just botulinum toxin type A. This may lessen a patient's likelihood of developing antibodies to Xeomin. When your body senses a foreign invader, it responds by creating antibodies and launching an attack. If this were to occur with a neurotoxin such as botulinum toxin type A, it may not have its desired effects.

When looking for a place to get Xeomin, look for a place who uses a wide variety of injectables such as Xeomin, Botox, Juvaderm, Radiesse, and Restylane.  At FACE, our Injection Specialist has worked under Top Docs and trainers, and focuses on liquid face-lifts to restore a synergistic and youthful appearance to the skin.
