What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is an injectable treatment that is extremely similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic in both form and function: both of these injectables are formulated with botulinum toxin, and both of them are used to combat dynamic wrinkles. This cosmetic treatment was FDA approved for aesthetic use in 2011, is used in 20 countries, and has been administered to over one million people in the United States. It is particularly well suited for treating forehead creases, crow’s feet, and worry lines.
How Does it Work?
Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® is also an injectable neuromodulator comprised of botulinum toxin. Neuromodulators work by targeting the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Once a neuromodulator has been injected into a facial muscle, this muscle begins to relax, allowing the wrinkles above it to smoothen and soften. Because botulinum toxin is removed from the body over time, routine injections need to be undergone in order to maintain results.
Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, XEOMIN® is chemically pure and contains absolutely no additives or fillers. Because of this, there is a slightly lower risk of allergic reaction when undergoing XEOMIN® injections.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Like any injectable treatment, XEOMIN® is not particularly comfortable. However, the pain of injections is typically well-tolerated by patients, and each injection session only lasts between 5-15 minutes. And once patients are done with their treatment session, they can get right back to their daily routine — these injections feature absolutely no downtime!
Improvements from this treatment are usually visible no more than five days after treatment. These results typically last between 3-6 months, at which point additional injections will be needed to sustain any changes.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Almost anyone over the age of 18 that is interested in improving the appearance of dynamic wrinkles is a candidate for XEOMIN®. However, individuals that have had adverse reactions to either BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® in the past should not undergo XEOMIN® injections.
