Skin Care Secrets from Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens
A BOTOX Alternative
XEOMIN has only recently been approved for cosmetic use in the United States, but it been providing positive results in the UK since 2008. XEOMIN has been purified and simplified to maximize its results. Because it is free of additives that can sometimes inhibit the effectiveness of BOTOX Cosmetic, it has earned the nickname “Naked BOTOX.”
XEOMIN works very much like BOTOX to target muscles that cause wrinkles through frequent muscle contractions. Temporarily slowing down or “paralyzing” these muscles can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, which usually become less visible with repeat treatments. Because XEOMIN is free of proteins that can limit the effectiveness of the toxin, XEOMIN can potentially last longer between treatments than BOTOX.
While there are minor differences between BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport and XEOMIN, each product produces similar results. In many cases, the main difference is in the cost of treatments. XEOMIN is slightly less expensive than BOTOX and may last longer. However, XEOMIN may or may not work best for you, so ask your surgeon to help you decide which product is right for your needs.
