The botulinum toxin is the primary ingredient used in some of the most popular cosmetic procedures. First making its appearance over 30 years ago under the name Botox (a portmanteau of botulinum toxin), this widely revered neurotoxin quickly gained popularity due to its ability to restore youthfulness and temporarily reverse the signs of aging. The botulinum toxin is sold under several names, each with their own unique aspect that sets them apart from the others. Among these brandnames is Xeomin, which uses a more homogenous formula. While the botulinum toxin in Botox uses accessory proteins, Xeomin does not, but contains only the neurotoxin.
What is the difference between Botox and Xeomin?
Although both Xeomin and Botox use the botulinum toxin, they have several differences in their composition and effects. The most significant difference between Xeomin and Botox has to do with the actual formulation of the substance. Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin. That is, Xeomin contains only a single ingredient (botulinum toxin A), while the composition of Botox includes various accessory proteins that surround the active molecule. Xeomin’s pure-form results in a lower chance of the development of antibodies that can limit its desired effects. Another noticeable difference between the two injectables is the onset of results. While the results of both treatments last for about three to six months, Xeomin takes up to 4 days to see complete results, while Botox typically only takes about three days.
The final major difference between Xeomin and Botox applies more to clinicians than it does to clients. Because Xeomin does not contain additional additives, it does not have to be refrigerated before use like Botox. This feature simplifies distribution and storage of the product, which may make it more appealing than Botox to some medical clinics.
How long do Xeomin injections last?
The length of time a person will see results from Xeomin varies from person to person and is dependent upon a number of factors, including the area being treated, the severity of the condition being treated, if they have received the treatment before and how their body responds to the treatment. On average, the results of Xeomin can last anywhere between 3 and 6 months. After the three month period, a client may consider receiving a follow-up session in order to maintain the results or touch up certain areas. A single treatment session typically takes 15 minutes, with results visible within a week. Some patients need fewer treatments than others.
Can Xeomin be used for crow’s feet?
Yes, Xeomin can be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. Because lines around the eyes are most commonly associated with aging, crow’s feet are one of the most popularly treated areas. Xeomin is effective for reducing the signs of aging and is typically applied to the following areas to reduce the muscle movement that causes wrinkles:
- Between the eyebrows
The treatment helps prevent wrinkles and softens lines. Many people enjoy Xeomin treatments to reduce the visible signs of aging or as an alternative to Botox.
What are the benefits of Xeomin?
Xeomin provides a long list of benefits, including:
- Smooths the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, around the mouth or on the forehead
- Blocks the nerves from signaling the muscles, which causes the muscles to relax and prevents further wrinkling
- Quick procedure, minimal downtime, and noticeable results right away
- Less likely to cause allergic reactions due to the purity of the substance used
