Xeomin is a uniquely purified choice for moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions, so frown lines are then softened. Xeomin® is comparable to the most commonly known Botox®. The difference is that unlike Botox®, which contains accessory proteins, Xeomin® is designed to deliver the toxin without any protein additives. That in turn gives it the name “naked’ toxin.
Treatment is administered by giving injections into the muscles of mastication. The injection targets the muscle involved with the contraction. Most patients with chronic pain have had positive results within a week. The use of dental night guard is also used in conjunction of masseter injections.
