What is XEOMIN? (Zee-Oh-Min)
XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine very similar to Botox that is injected into muscles and used for various cosmetic and medical conditions such as :
- For treatment of increased muscle stiffness in the arm of adults with upper limb spasticity.
- To treat the abnormal head position and neck pain with cervical dystonia (CD).
- To treat abnormal spasm of the eyelids (blepharospasm) in adults who have had prior treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA (BOTOX).
- To improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults or treatment of dynamic wrinkles of forehead,
for a short period of time (temporary)
We use XEOMIN for several other aesthetic conditions in our Dallas and Southlake cosmetic skincare practice;
- XEOMIN for management of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating
- XEOMIN for temporary non-surgical jaw reduction and facial slimming
- XEOMIN for reduction of gummy smile.
- XEOMIN for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of forehead, crow’s feet. chin wrinkles and prominent neck bands, or platysmal bands
XEOMIN FDA approval: Xeomin from Merz Aesthetics has been used in Europe since 2008. It received FDA approval in November of 2011 and is the newest Neurotoxin on the US market.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions. So frown lines are softened.
What is the difference between XEOMIN and BOTOX?
BOTOX and XEOMIN are very similar in their active ingredient and mechanism of action. XEOMIN is sometimes described as “The Naked BOTOX” due to the absence of carrier proteins present with Botox. Theoretically the lack of carrier protein results in fewer allergic reactions and less chance of developing resistance to the neurotoxin which is sometimes seen in people after repeated treatment with BOTOX. XEOMIN, due to its lack of these additives, does not need to be refrigerated. It is the only one of the three neurotoxins that has this feature.
