XEOMIN ® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.
How Does XEOMIN® differ from BOTOX ® ?
XEOMIN ® and BOTOX ® work the same way to paralyze muscles and smooth wrinkles. They share the identical active ingredient botulinum toxin A. The difference is that BOTOX ® has an accompanying protein,
but XEOMIN ® is naked. In the skin, all of the protein detaches from BOTOX ® within 1 minute of injection so there is no reason why the effect of xeomin should differ from BOTOX ® .
XEOMIN ® has proven effective in clinical trials. It is approved in Europe and the US to diminish glabellar (between the eyebrow) wrinkles.
We have had great results with XEOMIN ® in our office and many patients are preferring it over BOTOX ® as many report results are apparent quicker after injection.
