XEOMIN

XEOMIN IS A BOTOX ALTERNATIVE FOR TREATING SIGNS OF AGING IN THE BROW AREA.

How it Works

When you frown, squint, or smile, the muscles between your eyebrows contract and cause your skin to furrow. The resulting dynamic lines eventually contribute to persistent lines. As a neurotoxin, XEOMIN works by temporarily blocking signals between your nerves and muscles, causing the muscles to relax and minimizing their ability to contract. This allows lines and wrinkles to smooth out naturally when your face is at rest and prevents muscles from moving in a way that deepens creases.

After your treatment, you should start noticing changes within 2-3 days, with optimal results showing within a week. Your XEOMIN results should last for 3-6 months.

 

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR XEOMIN?

XEOMIN is designed specifically to treat the furrows that appear between the eyebrows due to age and habitual facial expressions. You might be an ideal candidate for XEOMIN injections if:

  • You have moderate to severe glabellar creases

  • You’ve responded well to other neuromuscular blockers in the past, but want to try something new

  • You want a nonsurgical anti-aging intervention with quick results

  • You’re not ready for more invasive procedures

 

BOTOX & XEOMIN: DIFFERENCES

The main difference between Xeomin and Botox has to do with the formulation. Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin. That is, Xeomin contains only a single ingredient (botulinum toxin A), while the formulation of Botox includes various protective proteins clustered around the active molecule. The benefit of Xeomin’s pure-form means users have a lower chance of developing resistance (antibodies) that can limit its desired effects.

Another difference between Botox and Xeomin is the onset of results. While the results of both treatments last for about the same duration (3-6 months), Xeomin requires up to 4 days for results to fully form, while Botox typically only requires about 72 hours.

The final major difference is behind the scenes: since the Xeomin formulation does not contain additional additives it does not have to be refrigerated before use.
