Xeomin: What is it and How Xeomin Compares to BOTOX®

Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA), made by Merz Pharmaceuticals, is approved by the US FDA for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.  IncobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

Xeomin is similar to other drugs in this category, including Botox and Dysport, that also have FDA approval for the treatment of facial wrinkles. Now that Xeomin is available and FDA approved, doctors can use it to treat the same facial lines treated by Botox and Dysport, including frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Worldwide, more than 84,000 people have been treated with Xeomin injections. The U.S. is actually the 20th country to approve this new drug. It is available in 50-unit and 100-unit vials.

Better or worse than Botox?

Xeomin is the first one that does not need to be refrigerated before use, which may simplify distribution. Xeomin also has no additives, just botulinum toxin type A. This may mean that there is less risk of developing antibodies against Xeomin than other available neurotoxins. The body develops antibodies in response to a foreign invader and attacks. In theory, antibodies could prevent a neurotoxin from having its desired effects. The effects of Xeomin occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox in terms of both onset and duration of action. Xeomin should not be used interchangeably with other botulinum products.

Testimonials

I had the laser hair removal for my under arms and it has been great.  I am one year post treatments and all I have is some light fuzz that grows that Ishave about once every 2 months.  I received 6 treatments and they said that I could go back for a touch up treatment if needed, but so far, I haven’t minded the fuzz that I shave every couple of months.  The service I received was very professional.  I plan to return for another series of hair laser removal for my legs.  I had good service here.

I have never had any procedures of any kind done before and was a little nervous — Dawn was very informative and gave logical advice on what I was looking to have done — I chose the laser treatment for sunspots on my face — she explained every detail of what was happening during treatment and what will happen over the next several weeks — looking forward to a clearer complexion and making my next appointment on the next steps of my preventative maintenance.

I have received excellent services provided by Dawn. She is always professional while being personable enough to make you feel comfortable. I have received laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and scar treatment utilizing the skin p.i.n. I feel like all of the equipment is top of the line and I am VERY happy with my results. I highly recommend this business and will definitely use them again in the future. I really can’t say enough good things about my experience (which could have been very awkward).
