Xeomin is a neuromodulator similar to Botox. It is a uniquely purified neuromodulator that doesn't contain the additional accessory proteins commonly found in other kinds of neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, which means the muscles will not produce antibodies in response to the neuromodulator. Because of this you're less likely to experience common side effects and less likely to develop an immune response. It is generally safe for people with autoimmune disease.
Xeomin works just as effectively as the other neuromodulators available for cosmetic use and typically requires similar dosing. It is also faster acting allowing results to be visible sooner than Botox. It's a great option for men and women who have never had neurotoxin before and are interested in something that will help soften wrinkles and prevent static lines. Commonly treated areas include frown lines/"11's," forehead lines, crow's feet, masseter treatment/"jawline slimming", and "orange peel" chin. As with most neuromodulators, results typically last between 3-4 months.
Dosing examples for the most common areas treated:
- Forehead = 6-12 units
- Frown lines/"11s" = 20 units
- Crow's feet = 6-8 units per side
- Masseter/TMJ/"jawline slimming" = 16-20 units per side
- Lip flip = 4-8 units
