What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is the latest option in neuromodulators. It was recently approved as a wrinkle treatment by the FDA, after proving its effectiveness in treating cervical dystonia and blepharospasm (uncontrolled eye twitching). This formula has proven effective for some patients that do not respond as well as they’d like to Botox injections, due to slight modifications in the formulation.
"Had the best experience w/ Dr. Olson at JPO Aesthetics. I had a lot of questions about wrinkle relaxers like Botox for heavy lines in my forehead. For my first time experience I was nervous about pain but it was quick and simple! Actually kinda like it. Will be back in 3-4 months."- C.A. / Google / Oct 30, 2020
Frequently Asked Questions
How Is Xeomin Different From Botox?
Xeomin contains no binding proteins. It is pure botulinum toxin with similar dosing and duration of action. The theoretical advantage is less antibody formation and thus perhaps less resistance to the product. Another advantage for practitioners is no need for refrigeration.
On the other hand, Botox has a much longer track record of safety in trained practitioner hands.
How Long Has It Been Around?
Although it was just recently approved by the FDA, Xeomin has been used in Europe since 2008.
Injectable treatments take just a few minutes to complete and patients may return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure. Results become apparent within the first week or two after receiving the injections and may last 3 months or more.
