Xeomin was FDA approved in 2010 to treat glabellar lines, as well as other conditions. It can help temporarily rid you of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around your eyes. It also treats excessive drooling and abnormal muscle contraction in the neck, eyelids, or limbs.
It is a neurotoxin like Botox and promotes smoother, younger-looking skin.
Both cosmetic preparations are effective treatments. They are relatively convenient and start working once they are injected into the muscle. You may not see the full effect until seven to 14 days after injection, however.
It has been found to work faster and last longer than Botox, and a licensed injector must inject both neurotoxins. There are no generic versions available since Xeomin is a biological drug. However, it is less expensive than Botox and tends to last longer.
Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. This neurotoxin blocks neuromuscular signals to relax targeted muscles are the injection sites. Xeomin and Botox contain the same active ingredients, but they are used and formulated a bit differently.
Xeomin is a “naked” form of botulinum tox and contains no protein additive like Botox. The purified structure of Xeomin helps prevent anti-body resistance.
Xeomin can be stored at room temperature or in a refrigerator before use. Botox needs to be stored in a refrigerator before using it.
What Happens During and after Xeomin Treatments?
Wrinkles will start to fade within three to four days after your Xeomin treatment, and complete results will be apparent within 30 days.
