Neurotoxin injections are the number one cosmetic procedure in the country. More than five million procedures are done yearly with Botulinum toxin type A to lift the eyebrows, diminish wrinkles in the forehead and frown lines between the eyes. When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.

XEOMIN® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® fibers from contracting. They temporarily block the chemical signal from the nerve that move the muscle. When used in the right amount by a trained professional, the muscle will relax, but not appear frozen, keeping it from pulling too hard on skin that has lost elasticity from environmental exposure. By reducing these contractions, can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
