Botox/Xeomin injections are a fantastic tool for softening frown lines (around the glabellar area), crow's feet, bunny lines, and lip lines. These injections have also been approved as a remedy for migraines, muscular spasms, and excessive sweating of the hands, soles, and armpits.
Treatment usually lasts 3-4 months. Doses vary. Typically, the Glabella requires 20 units, and crow's feet require 8-12 units on each side. On average, about 44 units are required to cover the frown, forehead, and eye areas. Effects are noticeable about 3-4 days after treatment, with maximum results appearing within 2 weeks.

Over time, as our skin begins to age and lose some of its elasticity, repeated facial expressions can cause persistent glabellar frown lines. Xeomin is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Step 1: Xeomin is injected into the muscle.
Step 2: The active ingredient in Xeomin blocks the signals sent from the nerve endings to the muscle.
Step 3: This block then prevents muscle fibers from contracting, reducing the lines between your eyebrows.
