The injectable neuromodulator Xeomin is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabellar lines, which are the vertical lines between the eyebrows. The product is a competitor to Botox and Dysport, both of which are also used to treat glabellar lines.

And, in this article, we will answer several questions about the product as well as how its surrounding temperature affects its effectiveness.

What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin is a neurotoxin that is used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows or in any areas of the body. It is a type of botulinum toxin that is made from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. This bacterium is the same one that is used to make Botox and Dysport.

Xeomin is administered by injection and it works by paralyzing the muscles that cause the frown lines to form. This will help to improve the appearance of the lines over time.

How Does Xeomin Work?

XEOMIN® can help to block the formation of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. This is especially true for the frown lines between the eyebrows. When XEOMIN® is injected into the facial muscles, it blocks the release of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a chemical messenger that transmits a signal from the nerve terminals to muscle fibers, causing them to contract.

And by blocking its release, Xeomin will not only help get rid of wrinkles but will also treat sudden muscle spasms.

How Long Do the Results Last?

On average, results from this treatment last for about six months, as the solution is fully absorbed into the body over that time. The longevity of the treatment is unique to injectables, as most other dermal filler treatments last only three to four months.

What Are Xeomin’s Side Effects?

As with any medical treatment, there are potential side effects associated with Xeomin. Some of the most common side effects include headache, nausea, eyelid drooping, and dry mouth.

More serious side effects are rare but can have difficulty swallowing, trouble breathing, and chest pain. It is important to discuss the use of Xeomin with your physician to make sure that there won’t be any problems during the process of administering it.

How to prepare for Xeomin Injections?

If you are considering Xeomin injections, it is important to be well-prepared for the procedure. Here are some tips on how to prepare for Xeomin injections:

  1. Consult with a qualified doctor. It is important to consult with a qualified doctor before undergoing any type of injection procedure.
  2. Arrange for transportation. Make sure you have arrangements for transportation after the procedure.
  3. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine before the procedure.
  4. Bring a friend or a family member to help you after the procedure.

What To Expect After Your Xeomin Injection?

Most people are curious about what to expect after they get a Xeomin injection. For the most part, the experience is pretty benign. Some people may experience a small amount of bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a few days.

Some people also report a temporary headache or flu-like symptoms in the first few days after treatment, but these too are usually short-lived.

However, if you feel like you have been experiencing severe symptoms right after your Xeomin injection, it would be best to immediately seek the help of your doctor.

Can Temperature Affect Xeomin’s Potency?

There is no definitive answer to this question as the potency of Xeomin may be affected by a number of environmental factors. In general, it is recommended that Xeomin be stored between 36- and 46-degrees Fahrenheit. However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine whether the temperature in your specific area may have an impact on the efficacy of Xeomin.

Generally, Xeomin that has been reconstituted is ready for use and should be administered within 24 hours. If it is not used immediately, Xeomin must be stored in its original vial in a refrigerator that is set to 2°C – 8°C (36°F – 46°F). It can be stored in this way for up to 24 hours until it is time to use it.

Where Can You Get Xeomin?

Xeomin is a popular injectable treatment for wrinkles. It is a prescription-only medication, and you can only get it from a licensed dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

In this article, we have discussed Xeomin, how it works, and how temperature can affect its effectiveness. For the most part, if stored well, Xeomin will remain potent. Now that you know how to store Xeomin, how it works, and what to do before and after the procedure, you are now ready to use, administer, and go through the procedure.
