Xeomin is a popular cosmetic injectable used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by minimizing muscle movement. Much like Botox, it uses the botulinum toxin to reduce muscle movement. However, the chemical composition is different from Botox, as Botox contains additional accessory proteins whereas Xeomin uses a purified version of the botulinum toxin without accessory proteins.
How does Xeomin work?
The active ingredient in Xeomin is the botulinum toxin, just like Botox. This toxin works by interfering with the signals sent between nerves and muscles, effectively paralyzing the area of injection. As the muscles can no longer contract, wrinkles formed by muscles in motion, such as the lines between the eyes when flexing the eyebrows, are minimized or completely diminished.
What is a Xeomin injection?
Xeomin is a cosmetic injectable used in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. It does this by reducing muscle movement with the use of the botulinum toxin. The botulinum toxin, which is also present in Botox, interferes with the signal between the nerves and muscles, rendering the muscles unable to move. In areas like the forehead, when the muscles cannot contract, they cannot flex or constrict, therefore the wrinkles made by these movements will not be present. Xeomin is most effective on wrinkles created by muscle contractions, but not on wrinkles that are present without any muscle movement.
Which lasts longer, Botox or Xeomin?
Botox and Xeomin are similar cosmetic injectables, but are each unique with their own characteristics. Introduced in 2002, Botox has been around for longer, and is one of the most well-known injectables. Xeomin was introduced later in the game in 2010 and has gained much popularity as an alternative to Botox. Results from Botox and Xeomin will be similar, however Xeomin is known to last longer. The average duration of visible effects with Botox is around three to four months, whereas Xeomin lasts a bit longer coming in more consistently towards the four month mark. The biggest difference between the composition of Botox and Xeomin is the presence of accessory proteins. Botox uses these proteins, but Xeomin does not.
How many units of Xeomin do you need?
The amount of units of Xeomin needed to achieve your desired result will depend on a number of factors, including: the area of injection, the severity of wrinkles being treated and the unique physiology of the individual. When treating the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the typical amount used is 20 units, although can vary based on the aforementioned factors. When treating medical conditions, more units are usually required, around 50 to 100 units to be effective. Certain conditions, such as muscle spasticity, require the maximum number of units permitted at one time, which is 400. This volume of product is required to provide medical effects and reduce symptoms associated with overactive muscles.
