What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is another one of the collection of neuromodulators offered at Lennox Aesthetics. Like all of the neuromodulators, Xeomin works by temporarily relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles, frown lines, and other facial and neck muscles spasms. Xeomin is similar to other botulinum toxin type A treatments such as Botox and Dysport. Xeomin is commonly used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). It can also be used to treat muscle spasms in the neck, eyelids, and other areas of the body.
How is Xeomin different from Botox?
Xeomin and Botox are both injectable cosmetic treatments that contain botulinum toxin type A and work in a similar way. They are both used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The main difference between Xeomin and Botox lies in their formulation.
Xeomin is considered to be the “naked” neuromodulator. Other neuromodulators contain proteins clustered around the active molecules, however, Xeomin does not contain proteins. This is believed to be beneficial by reducing the risk of users developing a resistance (antibodies) that decrease the overall desired effects.
The choice between Xeomin and other neuromodulators will depend on individual factors such as our patient’s preference, medical history, and treatment goals.
