Xeomin and Botox is used for treatment of wrinkles and facial expression lines such as:
Forehead frown & furrow lines
Nasal bunny lines
Crows feet on the side of the eyes
Lines around the mouth
Platysmal bands on the neck
Xeomin/Botox is not very effective for wrinkles that are present all the time without facial muscle contraction.
In addition to cosmetic treatment, Xeomin & Botox can be used off-label (i.e. it is not FDA approved for these indications) for treatment of:
Excess sweating from forehead and armpits
Bruxism (teeth grinding)
Please note: These off-label treatments are not covered by insurance.
Xeomin/Botox acts by immobilizing the muscle at treated sites. It does this by inhibiting contraction of the targeted muscles. Only those muscles producing these undesirable lines are treated.
The two products are very similar. They take the same time to take effect and last about as long. Xeomin is a purified version of Botulinum toxin with less risk of developing antibodies over time.
Since Xeomin is generally cheaper than Botox, we are able to pass some of those savings to you.
