FAQS: Xeomin Injections
Most people have heard of Botox, but its lesser-known cousin Xeomin should get a little more attention. Similarly to Botox, it combats the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. But, there are a few key differences between these injections. So, what is Xeomin and how does it work? Why would you choose it over Botox? Let’s take a deeper look at this product and its benefits.
How Do Neuromodulators Work?
Both Botox and Xeomin are made from the same active ingredient – botulinum toxin A. When injected, it effectively temporarily paralyzes the muscles in the area. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. While the name might sound scary, rest assured that this treatment has been used safely for decades. Our clients love the results of this quick, in-office treatment.
What Makes Xeomin Different Than Botox?
Xeomin’s unique formula has been purified – removing any unnecessary proteins and additives for a clean, potent injection. Many people prefer this version because of its purity, and it does reduce the risk of developing resistance (antibodies) that make neurotoxin injections less effective over time. Because of its single ingredient formulation, it’s often referred to as “naked Botox.”
Take Years Off Your Appearance
One of the major benefits of this type of treatment is that it’s fast, with no downtime. After a Xeomin injection, results appear within about 4 days and last 3-6 months. We use it to smooth wrinkles in some of the most common problem areas:
- Forehead lines
- Glabellar lines (the 11s)
- Crow’s feet
- Perioral lines (smoker’s lines)
- Marionette lines
- Bunny lines
- …and more
