Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA, also called botulinum toxin type A), is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
Xeomin is the purest botulinum toxin on the market. Through a proprietary process, the excess proteins are removed from the molecule, thereby decreasing the possibility of an immune response.
Xeomin is used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles (sometimes called “frown lines”) between the eyebrows, and for upper limb spasticity in adults.
Xeomin is used to treat cervical dystonia (severe spasms in the neck muscles). It is also used to treat muscle spasms (stiffness) in the arms.
Xeomin is also used to treat certain eye muscle conditions caused by nerve disorders. This includes uncontrolled blinking or spasm of the eyelids and a condition in which the eyes do not point in the same direction.
