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.
Having no additives, Xeomin may lessen a client’s likelihood of developing antibodies. When the body senses a foreign invader, it responds by creating antibodies and launching an attack. If this were to occur with a neurotoxin such as botulinum toxin type A, the desired effects may not be produced. So in that sense, Xeomin has an advantage over Botox. Otherwise, they are quite comparable. They are mixed and measured in the same units, injection methods are the same and the results are comparable. Many of our clients have switched to Xeomin because they feel it “works in” faster and some are reporting results that last longer … sometimes up to six months. To learn more about Xeomin
