Xeomin® is an injectable treatment that can be used for both cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. It is produced by the same neurotoxin as traditional Botox®, known as Botulinum toxin, that works by temporarily blocking nerve signals into the muscle. This prevents muscle contractions and can be used to treat a variety of concerns, such as:
- fine lines
- high lip lines (gummy smiles)
- bruxism & TMD
Did You Know?
Because of their extensive expertise in facial muscles and anatomy, dentists administering Xeomin® injections is very safe. In fact, dentists’ thorough knowledge of the face’s structures usually enable them to administer Xeomin® injections with less discomfort.
