WHAT IS XEOMIN®?
The facial expressions created by the contraction of muscles under the skin form frown lines in the eyebrows. Over time, your skin ages and these repeated expressions cause deep wrinkles. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription drugs that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions. Thus, the wrinkles of the eyebrows are attenuated.
XEOMIN® is manufactured using a unique process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes accessory proteins that do not play an active role in the treatment. XEOMIN® is a highly purified neurotoxin. It should be noted that no studies have been conducted to determine whether the presence or absence of accessory protein has a long-term effect on the safety or efficacy of treatment.
All cosmetic injections at the Bellevue Clinic are administered by specialist physicians.
