Xeomin is the newest “frown fixer” available to patients across the country. Pronounced zee-oh-min, the new botulinum toxin product acts like its predecessors Botox and Dysport in reducing or preventing contractions of the glabellar muscle between the eyes.
How is Xeomin different from Botox or Dysport?
The difference in Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is that it does not carry the proteins that are typical of the other products. The potential advantage lies in the lessened likelihood of antibodies being formed to the proteins which – for a very limited number of patients – can render the product ineffective. (This typically is only seen in patients who have used botulinum toxin for an extended period of time.)
How is Xeomin similar to Botox or Dysport?
The muscle-restricting action is, for all practical purposes, like Botox and Dysport and the dosing will be the same as Botox. So if you're accustomed to 20 units of Botox, expect to receive 20 units of Xeomin for the same effect and area.
Why would I choose Xeomin over the injectables already available for a longer period of time?
At the introduction of Xeomin, the manufacturer has priced the product a bit lower, so price could be one reason. It’s purported quicker effect could be another. We frequently use both Dysport and Botox in a single session to achieve desired results. We will do the same with Xeomin. As time goes on, which to choose will likely just be patient preference.
How fast does Xeomin work?
Although still very new to the U.S. market, Xeomin is reported to begin taking effect within 2-3 days after injection with effectiveness ranging up to 4 months.
Xeomin is $10/unit
