Xeomin is an injectable and a neuromodulator, just like its predecessors Botox and Dysport. It is mainly used in the field of aesthetic medicine in order to smooth frown wrinkles and other skin abnormalities. As an injectable, it does not contain proteins and provides a natural look similar to other neuromodulators. It is as effective and does not present any significant side effects. So it is a safe option for treating wrinkles, brow lines, crows feet and maintaining the skin in its prime state. The same injectable is often used for treating hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, low brows and neck bands. Injectable cost is affordable, and there are discounts when multiple injections are scheduled.

Xeomin vs Botox

Xeomin works exactly like Botox but is quite different in terms of synthesis. It does not contain the typical proteins you would find in Botox, and this is why it is often called the “naked” botulinum product. Without the proteins, it is less likely that antibodies are formed, which increases the effectiveness of the product.

Choosing Xeomin over Other Products

Injectables tends to work quicker than other products like Botox or Dysport. Typically, the results are visible within one week after the injection, and they can last for up to six months. In some cases, the results are apparent after 2 or three days after injection. With injectables, results are natural, and this is crucial for the success of the procedure. Sometimes it is imperative that a combination of Xeomin and other products is used, so as to guarantee the optimal outcome.

Similarities of Xeomin with Botox and Dysport

Its muscle restricting action makes injectables a similar option when compared to Botox and Dysport. Their use is the same, and therefore their differences lie in their composition and their response time. In their essence, they offer similar benefits and smooth wrinkles, frown lines, low brows, neck bands and cases of hyperhidrosis.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Xeomin injections are administered by certified aesthetic practitioners to the affected muscles, so as to block their nerve activity. No multiple treatments are required, and it is prudent to allow a window of at least 3 months prior to the next injection. Recovery is smooth, as injectables do not affect your health in any way. So you will be expected to get back to your daily routine, as soon as you leave the clinic. You are advised to rest and not expose your skin to excessive sunlight, while you are encouraged to contact Dr. Sheffield if any side effects occur.

Easy Process & Great Results

If you are worried about the pain associated with the administration of Xeomin injections, you should not. They are pain-free, and thus they do not cause any discomfort during the procedure. For best results, it is essential that only an experienced professional injects you with injectables. Everything will run smoothly, and you will be able to see the results more quickly than anticipated. Although not everybody’s skin reacts in the same manner, it is safe to say that the results will start within the first week of the injection. This makes it a better option in some ways when compared to Botox and just as reliable when compared to Dysport.
