Allure Aesthetic Center knows that self-care is not “selfish.” Caring about how you look is not “superficial.” And doing something about your frown lines is not “wrong.” It’s time to X out the judgment, the labels, the doubts, the regrets. Oh, and the frown lines. With XEOMIN®, the only clinically proven anti-wrinkle injection uniquely purified to remove unnecessary proteins
Although introduced in the US in 2010, Xeomin has been used successfully in other countries since 2005. Like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is designed to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin, is exactly the same as in Botox and Dysport.
Patients whose cosmetic results with Botox or Dysport are unsatisfactory may have more success with Xeomin. Our experience shows that people who respond poorly to Botox often respond well to Xeomin. Failure to respond to Botox may be due to the formation of antibodies to proteins that surround the active ingredient of Botox. Since the active ingredient of Xeomin is not coated with protein, antibodies do not form and the patient responds better.

Everything You Need To Know About Xeomin, The “Organic Botox”.
Neurotoxins are the hottest aesthetic service on the market to date. Welcoming Botox®, originally the only toxin option, created a cosmetic boom. With now having four FDA approved toxins on the market, XEOMIN® has paved its way.
Some people express that after using one neurotoxin for a certain amount of time, they feel as though they are no longer achieving the same beautiful results. Because your body has the ability to become immune to a neurotoxin, Xeomin® is a great option to use as it continues to provide the same beautiful results.
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
HOW DOES XEOMIN® WORK?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN®– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
IS XEOMIN® PROVEN?
XEOMIN® was proven effective in two randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled clinical trials of 547 healthy, adult patients. The average age of patients in the study was 46 years. Patients received 20 Units of XEOMIN® and were classified as responders if they had a 2-grade improvement on a 4-point scale as assessed by the physician and patient. Using these criteria, treatment success was higher with XEOMIN® than placebo on Day 30 in both studies (60% and 48% vs. 0% for placebo in both studies). Based on these trials, XEOMIN® received FDA approval for use in glabellar lines in 2011.
HOW DO I KNOW IF XEOMIN® IS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines, XEOMIN® may be right for you. Talk to your doctor to discuss the benefits and risks of treatment. Do not use XEOMIN® if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in XEOMIN®. You should also not use XEOMIN® if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
WHAT SHOULD I TELL MY DOCTOR BEFORE TREATMENT?
Before receiving treatment with XEOMIN®, you should tell your doctor about all of your medical conditions, including whether you have a disease that affects your muscles and nerves, have allergies to any botulinum toxin product, or have experienced any side effect from any other botulinum toxin in the past. In addition, tell your doctor about your medical history and all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your doctor if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last four months or in the past. Be sure your doctor knows exactly which product(s) you received and when you received them.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject XEOMIN® into the muscles in your forehead that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. No anesthesia is required; however, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection. The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The maximum effect occurred at 30 days. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® may cause serious side effects, including allergic reactions. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to XEOMIN® may include: itching, rash, redness, swelling, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint. Tell your doctor or seek medical help right away if you have wheezing, experience other asthma symptoms, or if you become dizzy or faint. In clinical trials of XEOMIN® for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows, headache was the most common side effect. XEOMIN® may cause loss of strength or general muscle weakness, blurred vision, or drooping eyelids within hours to weeks of taking XEOMIN®. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities. Tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not subside.
