Like BOTOX® and Dysport®, Xeomin® uses botulinum toxin type A to block signals from the nerves to the muscles. When the nerves cannot communicate with the facial muscles, those muscles stop contracting, smoothing the dynamic lines and wrinkles that develop and deepen due to facial expressions.
However, Xeomin stands out among other neuromodulators through its unique, double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, purifying the injectable.
Why Does Xeomin’s Reduced Ingredient List Matter?
Often, patients who use products like Botox or Dysport for years become desensitized to the treatments, leading injections to become less effective. Since Xeomin does not contain any extra proteins, it reduces the likelihood of developing resistance to the injections.
How Does Xeomin Compare to Other Neuromodulators?
Xeomin and Botox are equally potent, so patients switching from Botox to Xeomin will use the same number of units for their treatment. Both Botox and Xeomin are three times more concentrated than Dysport.
While Dysport’s reduced concentration allows it to diffuse more easily and treat larger treatment areas, Xeomin’s consistency matches Botox, which is better suited for treating precise areas.
What Areas Can I Treat with Xeomin?
Xeomin is FDA-approved to treat horizontal forehead lines and the glabellar lines between the eyebrows.
Because Xeomin ceases the movement of targeted facial muscles, Xeomin treatments offer the added benefits of preventing new lines from forming and delaying current dynamic wrinkles from becoming permanent, static wrinkles.
