Xeomin® is an injectable Botulinum toxin (IncobotulinumtoxinA) that reduces the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. Xeomin® works because of Botulinum toxin which is used to block nerve activity in the muscles, making the face look smooth. Let’s get in depth Xeomin® vs. Botox®, which one is right for you? At Glamor Medical we offer three popular Neuromodulators including Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®.
Why Is Xeomin classified as a Neuromodulators?
If you are unfamiliar with Neuromodulators, they are a purified protein that blocks receptors at nerve endings. In other words they freeze the face where the injection is made. Neuromodulators are also a great treatment option for people that want to smooth current wrinkles and prevent future ones. This is why Xeomin® is popular option for people with conditions like cervical dystonia, facial wrinkles, and blepharospasm.
How Long Does Xeomin® Take To Work?
Ideally you will notice results between 4-7 days post treatment. You may need additional units of Xeomin® in a follow up appointment to obtain the desired look. It is recommended that you get 10-50 units per area, however this is not always the standard. At Glamor Medical we make sure that we see patients again who will require more units. Typically Males or people with stronger muscles will require a larger dose. As a result, Xeomin® lasts for around three to six months which is similar to Botox.
Xeomin® vs. Botox®
Xeomin® gained its popularity after being FDA approved and showing similar results as Botox®. Another amazing thing about Xeomin® is that it does not need to be refrigerated, so it can be easily distributed. The most noted benefit, is that Xeomin® has no additives which means the human body will not build antibodies against it. Typically, your body can form antibodies against other available neurotoxins like Botox®. Since Xeomin is primarily designed to treat frown lines and deeper wrinkles it is recommended for most facial inconsistencies.
On the other hand, Botox was one of the original treatments for facial concerns like wrinkles but is not good when used repeatedly. As more people try out Xeomin they are noticing that it dissolves quicker than Botox. Botox is known to treat frown lines which makes it the better choice for minor cosmetic procedures. All things considered, Botox is a bit more expensive than Xeomin and may stop working for some people. This is something anyone looking to get these treatments should research and discuss with your practitioner.
