What is botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin type A—the active ingredient in XEOMIN®—is produced commercially from C botulinum serotype A.
How does XEOMIN® work?
XEOMIN® is injected into muscles to decrease their activity. XEOMIN® blocks the release of a chemical messenger—acetylcholine—that conveys the signal from nerve terminals and causes muscle fibers to contract. Not all terminals are affected by botulinum toxin, so the muscles can still contract, just less forcefully. This allows the muscles to contract more normally.
How often will I need treatment with XEOMIN®?
Everyone is different. However, clinical studies suggest that it generally takes 7 days before most people begin to feel improvement. The effect generally lasts up to 12 weeks, but the effect in individual patients may be significantly longer or shorter.
How many XEOMIN® shots will I need for treatment?
This also varies from person to person. We will decide how many sites to inject and the total dose per muscle based on your condition.
Are all botulinum toxin products the same?
Not all botulinum toxin products are the same. This is reflected in the unique names for each product. The dose of XEOMIN® may be different from other botulinum toxin products.
Price range: $12.00 per unit. Prices vary per client. Consultations are always complimentary.
