Merz Aesthetics® Announces Teyana Taylor as New Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) Brand Partner

The first-ever medical aesthetics partnership for the R&B superstar entertainer

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


“I always strive to understand the ingredients in any product I’m using and listen to trusted sources like my doctors when choosing what’s right for my specific skin type,” said 31-year-old Taylor. “I had never tried an aesthetic treatment before, so it was important to choose a product that gives me consistent results without any unnecessary ingredients. That’s why I chose Xeomin® for my frown lines.”

Teyana Taylor is a singer-songwriter, actor, dancer and choreographer known for her melodic vocals and dynamic dance moves from the studio to the stage. On top of her three successful studio albums, Taylor most recently starred in Paramount Pictures Coming 2 America and can be seen as the main character in the upcoming A.V. Rockwell featured debut A Thousand And One.

“There are still a lot of stigmas around injectable treatments, especially for women of color – thinking it is not as safe or effective for a variety of skin types,” said Dr. DiAnne Davis, board-certified dermatologist. “But, this is simply untrue. You can still celebrate who you are and embrace desired treatments for anti-aging results. Partnerships like this with Teyana and Xeomin® show that aesthetic treatments can be an option for all skin types in producing a natural-looking result.”

The announcement of Taylor as the newest Xeomin® brand partner is a part of the ‘Beauty on Your Terms’ multi-channel campaign from Merz Aesthetics®, which empowers women and men to embrace beauty on their own terms.

“Teyana Taylor embodies the true meaning of ‘Beauty on Your Terms’ through her music, her style and, now, her beauty treatments,” said Patrick Urban, Merz Aesthetics® President, North America. “As one of the most dynamic and talented female entertainers, we are thrilled to partner with her in furthering our mission in bringing authentic confidence to life and encouraging others to do what makes them feel most confident as well.”

Warnings: XEOMIN may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any of these problems anytime (hours to weeks) after treatment with XEOMIN:

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. The symptoms of botulism include: loss of strength and muscle weakness all over the body, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing.
