Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, across the forehead or at the side of the eyes — crow’s feet. It is temporary, lasting 3 months or more. Botox is an anti-aging medication used to get rid of unwanted wrinkles.
Similar to Botox, Xeomin is an anti-wrinkle prescription medication injected into facial muscles to temporarily diminish and prevent moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows otherwise know as the glabellar region, crows feet and forehead lines.
- Xeomin contains less accessory proteins and therefore patients are less likely to form antibodies to it, therefore, less likely to have an allergic reaction. This is also why patients are less likely to become resistant to Xeomin.
- Xeomin works a little bit faster due to the fact that it is not complexed with proteins. The body does not have to waste time breaking down added proteins and therefore, Xeomin can bind to muscles right away creating the anti aging effects faster.
- Xeomin can be stored at room temperature while Botox must be refrigerated.
