Merz Aesthetics® Announces Joe Jonas as New Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) Brand Partner

New U.S. campaign marks the first-ever medical aesthetics partnership for the singer, songwriter and actor

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Merz Aesthetics®, the world’s largest dedicated medical aesthetics business, today announced Joe Jonas as the latest Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) brand partner. The U.S. partnership with Jonas kicks off a new, ground-breaking ‘Beauty on Your Terms’ campaign for Xeomin® and represents the first time the singer, songwriter and actor has partnered with an aesthetics brand. Xeomin® (pronounced phonetically: Zeo-min) is an FDA-approved double filtered anti-wrinkle injection to temporarily help improve the appearance of frown lines with only the ingredients that work and none that don’t.


Making the decision to have an aesthetic treatment was really about self-care and looking and feeling like the best version of myself,” said 33-year-old Jonas, who is known for his confidence and charisma onstage. “As I explored options with my doctor, it was important to me to understand exactly what was in a product before I am treated with it. That’s one of the main reasons Xeomin® has become a complement to my skincare treatment regimen. It provides me with consistent results for my frown lines without any unnecessary ingredients.”

The announcement of Jonas as the newest Xeomin® brand partner is also the start of a multi-channel campaign from Merz Aesthetics®, which includes unique content and experiential activations all creatively integrated to reach today’s customers and consumers wherever they are. Through the ‘Beauty on Your Terms’ campaign, Jonas will help continue the mission to empower women and men to embrace beauty on their own terms.

Joe Jonas is an international pop icon, songwriter and actor and the front man of the multiplatinum group DNCE, although he is perhaps best known for the global pop-rock band Jonas Brothers with his brothers Kevin and Nick Jonas. On the acting front, Joe most recently was seen as a guest-star in HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy Righteous Gemstones and is set to make his feature film debut in 2022 as one of the stars of the highly anticipated Korean war movie Devotion.

Joe Jonas epitomizes what it means to live with confidence,” said Patrick Urban, Merz Aesthetics® President, North America. “As one of biggest pop culture icons today, we are excited to partner with him as we aim to inspire women and men everywhere to prioritize self-care and embrace the freedom to make their own aesthetic decisions.”

Death can happen as a complication if you have severe problems with swallowing or breathing after treatment with XEOMIN.

    • People with certain breathing problems may need to use muscles in their neck to help them breathe and may be at greater risk for serious breathing problems with XEOMIN.
    • Swallowing problems may last for several months, and during that time you may need a feeding tube to receive food and water. If swallowing problems are severe, food or liquids may go into your lungs. People who already have swallowing or breathing problems before receiving XEOMIN have the highest risk of getting these problems.
  • Spread of toxin effects. In some cases, the effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas of the body away from the injection site and cause symptoms of a serious condition called botulism.
