What is Xeomin?
- 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 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.
- Xeomin is also used to temporarily lessen the appearance of facial wrinkles (sometimes called "frown lines") between the eyebrows, and for upper limb spasticity in adults.

After repeat injections, it may take less and less time before your symptoms return, especially if your body develops antibodies to the botulinum toxin. Do not seek botulinum toxin injections from more than one medical professional at a time. If you switch healthcare providers, be sure to tell your new provider how long it has been since your last botulinum toxin injection.
What happens if I miss a dose?
Since Xeomin has a temporary effect and is given at widely spaced intervals, missing a dose is not likely to be harmful.
What should I avoid?
- Xeomin may impair your vision or depth perception. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be able to see clearly.
