Botox and Xeomin Keep You From Looking Cranky
Botox® is one of the most popular, non-surgical methods available for eliminating facial wrinkles. Wrinkles on the face are caused by using certain muscles in a consistent pattern over a long period of time, such as squinting and frowning. By the time we are 30 or 40, these wrinkles are well-established. Botox (and its equivalent Xeomin) does its job of eliminating wrinkles by making the underlying facial muscles unable to contract. Without muscle contraction, wrinkles can’t form. It’s that simple.
Xeomin® is a competitive product made by Merz Pharmaceuticals. Xeomin (pronounced ZEE-o-min) is comparable to Botox in every way and is just as effective in getting rid of those glabellar and forehead lines and crow’s feet. They both do an equally great job in relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles. The chief difference between them is in their chemical composition. Xeomin is “naked” … that is, it is made without additives, whereas Botox is compounded with various protein molecules.
