First Came Botox, Then Came Dysport and Now There’s Xeomin! Is Xeomin Right For You!
What is Xeomin (pronounced zee-oh-min)?
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin A) is a neuromodulator just like Botox and is just as effective. Xeomin is made by Merz, the makers of Radiesse and Belotero. Xeomin is the number 1 neuro modulator in Germany. Xeomin is used to decrease moderate to severe wrinkles between a patient’s eyebrows (glabullar lines or 11’s) and to treat other facial wrinkles such as smile lines and forehead lines. Xeomin inhibits the activity of the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles.
What are the Differences Among Xeomin, Botox and Dysport?
Botox is manufactured with a protein coat around its molecule which delays the onset of its actions for a week or so. Xeomin, however, is made without the protein coat so that its onset of action is much quicker – often within only a few days. And every major study comparing Xeomin and Botox demonstrates that Xeomin lasts just as long as Botox and, unit for unit, it is equally effective. Because Xeomin is priced a little lower than Botox, most practices are able to offer it for less per unit. Although Dysport is even less expensive per unit, it is also much less effective that either Botox or Xeomin. Since about three times as many units of Dysport need to be injected for the same effect, the final cost is about the same. Also Dysport tends to spread a bit more than the other neuromodulators making eyebrow droops and lid droops more likely. At Red Bamboo, we use Xeomin and Botox exclusively as our neuromodulators. We always purchase our products directly from the manufacturers and NEVER import foreign products from Canada or Asia.
