- Xeomin injections require no downtime. You can get the treatment done during your lunch hour and go straight back to work.
- Along with smoothing existing lines, it can help prevent new wrinkles from forming. It’s common for young women to get neurotoxin injections as a preventive measure, delaying (or keeping) deep lines from forming.
- It’s safe for all skin tones and types.
- Effects are temporary, so if you’re unhappy with the results, you’re not stuck with them—they’ll gradually disappear over about four months.
- As with similar treatments, results are temporary, so you’ll have to return to your provider every four months to maintain them.
- While Xeomin can help with lines caused by muscle movements and facial expressions, it can’t erase etched-in lines that are visible when your face is at rest.
- You shouldn’t get Xeomin injections if you’re breastfeeding, are pregnant, or plan to become pregnant. The effects of the drug haven’t been studied in those instances, so the potential effects on an unborn (or new) baby are unknown.
- In the hands of an inexperienced injector, you could temporarily end up with a crooked smile, uneven eyebrows, or droopy eyelids.
Xeomin vs. Botox or other other neuromodulators: How do they compare?
Xeomin is a botulinum toxin type A, so it works similarly to Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA), Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA), and Jeveau (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs), by blocking signals between nerves and muscles so the injected muscle can’t contract and wrinkle the skin.
In terms of cost and life span, it’s also quite similar to other neuromodulators.
Xeomin differs from its competitors in that it doesn’t contain additives, so-called complexing proteins. The way it’s manufactured removes accessory proteins from the active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A.
Doctors theorize that Xeomin’s purity makes it less likely to cause drug resistance over time, though this has yet to be definitively proven.
