What is Xeomin – are You a Candidate?
Xeomin is the latest FDA approved, alternative form of Botulinum toxin (BOTOX) used by dermatologists and medical professionals for their patients who want to eliminate the wrinkles on the upper portion of their face. The treatment works similar to BOTOX and Dysport, in that it prevents the release of acetylcholine which will prevent muscles from contracting and wrinkling. The effects of Xeomin are limited to only the sites where it is injected.
For the most optimum cosmetic results, your dermatologist may recommend that Xeomin procedures be repeated about every three to four months and reviews have shown that the more frequently you have the procedure, the better the results will be because it will help to prevent the muscles from returning to the original contractions. Side effects of this type of procedure are rare but may include the product spreading to the surrounding muscles, which may cause a temporary weakness. If you do experience side effects, they are reversible. It is important that you follow the instructions provided by your dermatologist after the procedure to prevent the possibility of the product spreading.
The cost of Xeomin is typically comparable to the cost of botox and in some situations may be less expensive than botox or Dysport. The best results are usually seen in about seven days after the procedure and typically last the same as BOTOX.
