Xeomin® What to Expect
Xeomin® is a botulinum type of injectable similar to Botox® and Dysport®. Though its full benefits are not known, Xeomin shows promise as being a longer lasting treatment than its counterparts.
Xeomin contains no additives so the body is less likely to develop antibodies that break down the effects of botulinum toxin type A. It’s called the “naked toxin” because it lacks complex proteins found in the other brands. Pure botulinum is less likely to be rejected by the body, so it is an option for patients who have developed reactions to Botox or Dysport.
Xeomin received FDA approval in July 2011 and was an exciting addition to the cosmetic market for many doctors and patients. Xeomin has therapeutic uses beyond its cosmetic benefits and is used to treat blepharospasm (abnormal spasms in the eyelids) and cervical dystonia which causes abnormal head position and neck pain.
Xeomin® vs. Botox® and Dysport®
All three injectables share a basic makeup, being derived from botulinum toxin A. Xeomin and related products relax the muscles that cause deep worry lines in the forehead and around the eyes.
Xeomin is more similar to Botox than Dysport. Like Botox, it takes about one week to see the full effects of Xeomin. Some doctors believe that Xeomin will prove to be longer lasting than either Botox or Dysport, but a wider set of data needs to be collected to support that theory.
