Botox and Xeomin: Neuromodulators
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA), are called neuromodulators. They block certain chemicals signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. They are used in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. They gradually reduce and smooth wrinkles by relaxing the muscles around them. They help to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines temporarily. They are neurotoxic proteins produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
What are they used for?
The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the face. They can temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows often referred to as the “angry 11s” they can also be treated in other areas like Crow’s Feet around the eyes and smile lines.
When used in small doses, it has both cosmetic and medical uses. They are very helpful in treating many health problems including:
- Temporary smoothening of facial wrinkles and improving your appearance, including frown lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines, neckbands, and forehead wrinkles, among others
- TMJ disorder causes jaw pain and masseter spasms
- Severe underarm sweating
