Xeomin® is a uniquely purified toxin without proteins. This means the chance of toxin resistance over time is reduced, as well as reduced chance of an inflammatory or allergic reaction if you had a previous reaction to botulinum toxin injections.
Xeomin® can be utilized to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyebrows (the elevens) in adults. It can also be used as treatment for bunny lines, gummy smile, down-turning of the mouth, performing the lip flip and for treatment of TMJ pain/masseter reduction.
Evolve Aesthetics and Regenerative Medicine offers a wide range of injectables and free consultations to find the perfect combination for our clients.
