Though BOTOX® Cosmetic is more commonly known than XEOMIN®, both are FDA-approved neurotoxin injections that work at the nerve-muscle interface to relax targeted muscles, helping patients achieve youthful facial rejuvenation without surgery or downtime.
BOTOX® injections help reduce facial lines and wrinkles for up to four to six months. It is a quick, safe and effective treatment to help correct visible signs of aging on the face. Having been the top facial wrinkle treatment for over 15 years, Botox has an excellent track record for rejuvenation. Botox® has also been used to treat migraine headaches, excessive sweating, chronic back and jaw pain, and muscle spasms.
Similar to BOTOX®, XEOMIN® works at the nerve-muscle interface to relax targeted muscles, offering the best wrinkle treatment available to smooth frown and forehead lines. Sometimes referred to as “Naked Botox®,” XEOMIN® has none of the additives or complexing proteins found in BOTOX®. Complexing proteins can lead to the development of resistance, or a negative reaction to the injection.
Both Botox® and Xeomin® can help treat:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Crow’s Feet Around the Eyes
- Frown Lines Between the Eyebrows
- Horizontal Lines Across the Forehead
- Worry Lines Around the Mouth
- Lines on the Neck
The choice between BOTOX® and XEOMIN® is a patient and injector preference. Both facial injections work well to smooth wrinkles and lines, but Dr. Schwartz prefers to inject his Kansas City facial rejuvenation patients with XEOMIN®, as he’s noticed many patients see noticeable results for a longer period of time. He’s also observed fewer XEOMIN® patients build up a resistance to the product, as compared to patients using BOTOX®.
Kansas City’s Premier XEOMIN® Injection Practice
At Premier Vein & Body, Dr. Schwartz injects all XEOMIN® himself, ensuring beautiful, youthful facial rejuvenation. Not all XEOMIN® injections are created equal, meaning that the skill of the injector will greatly affect the results, which is why it’s so important to find an experienced, highly trained medical practitioner. Any neurotoxin injection, including XEOMIN®, has the possibility to diffuse. For this reason, injectors must be highly trained to prevent the neurotoxin from spreading into unwanted areas.
