FAQs: Xeomin® Botulinum Toxin
Botulinum toxin, typically known as Botox, is one of the most popular treatments for skin conditions as a result of aging. It’s highly effective against wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. You may not have heard of Xeomin, which is similar to Botox but has a few key differences. Read on to find out more about Xeomin, and why it’s becoming so popular.
Like Botox, Xeomin Is Minimally Invasive and Effective
Botulinum toxin injections like Xeomin are non-surgical and minimally invasive. The treatment doesn’t involve any incision or downtime. In a short in-office procedure, we inject Xeomin into areas of the face to relax the muscles. As a result, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished. You’ll notice a difference almost immediately, and these results can last for several months, depending on the patient. Xeomin treatments require no anesthesia, with just minor injection site pain. You are free to go back to regular daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Botulinum Toxin Injections Have Been Historically Safe
Before its cosmetic use, Botulinum toxin has a long history of use in treating eye and muscle-related issues. Some people feel more comfortable choosing this treatment than newer, similar treatments that are only a few years old.
Botulinum toxin injections are so popular that we see the vast majority of patients experience no negative side effects. Only a minority of patients report mild irritation or redness in the treated area, which usually dissipates on its own without the need for any further treatment.
Xeomin Is More Pure
The major difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin is a pure form of botulinum toxin. Unlike Botox which contains some additives like inactive proteins, Xeomin is free from such products. This eliminates some of the risks of allergic reactions that are seen (albeit rarely) with Botox. The purified structure of Xeomin may help to prevent antibody resistance, something we see with sometimes Botox injections over time. For people looking for a more pure injection with all of the same wrinkle-reducing effects, Xeomin fits the bill.
