If you struggle with cervical dystonia, or in plain terms, your neck muscles contracting involuntarily, you’re probably frustrated and in pain.
One solution to this is Xeomin injections to treat the areas.
What is Xeomin?
XEOMIN (zee-oh-min) is a treatment option for cervical dystonia and blepharospasm.
Xeomin is a form of botulinum toxin (like in Botox) that’s used to temporarily improve the abnormal head position and neck pain associated with both cervical dystonia as well as blepharospasm, which is abnormal contractions of your eyelid muscles.

Converting botulinum toxin type A into XEOMIN:
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin can be used in order to reduce pain and unwanted muscle contractions by blocking the abnormal nerve signals telling your muscles to contract.
This reduces the muscle activity in the neck, thereby getting rid of the associated pain.
How long does it take Xeomin to work?
Patients treated with Xeomin injections can expect results in as little as 5 days. However, you may experience full results up to 10 days after treatment.
Every body is different and therefore, you may have varying results with your Xeomin treatment.
Who is Xeomin right for?
Xeomin is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with cervical dystonia as well as those suffering from blepharospasm who have already been treated with Botox to help improve abnormal spasms of the eyelids.
Xeomin is not right for everyone and therefore, visiting your dermatologist is essential to discover if your condition can be treated with it.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a type of botulinum toxin type A called incobotulinumtoxinA. Merz, the manufacturer of XEOMIN, uses a proprietary purification process to reduce accessory proteins from botulinum toxin type A.1
