If you are ready to lessen your drooping eyelids and glabellar lines, ChristiMD Med Spa in Houston, Texas, offers relief with injections of the FDA-approved neurotoxin, Xeomin® for treatment associated with wrinkles.
During your consultation with Dr. Christi in our Houston-based medical spa, you can discuss Xeomin® vs Botox®, how they compare, Xeomin® costs, and which is right for you.
Xeomin® is similar to other botulinum toxin products like Botox® and Dysport, as it can be used to temporarily block nerve activity in the muscles that are causing wrinkles, frown lines, blepharospasms or issues associated with Cervical Dystonia. Studies have concluded that Xeomin® is safe and effective, even for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Both Xeomin® and Botox® contain botulinum toxin type A under the classification of neurotoxins. These are produced with a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum and are administered through tiny injections into the treatment area to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Xeomin® is not just for cosmetic enhancement. If you are experiencing excessive salivation (chronic sialorrhea), muscle contractions of the neck (cervical dystonia), spasms of the eyelids (blepharospasms) or spasticity of the limbs, Xeomin® is approved for and found successful in treating and providing symptom relief.
Made by Merz, Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) contains no additives and has been proven effective in 2 studies cited in the Journal of Neurological Sciences. One study showed similar results and efficacy to Botox®. In patient comparisons, it also demonstrated “non-inferiority” to Botox® for treatment of Cervical Dystonia. More than 84,000 people worldwide have received Xeomin® injections for relief of wrinkles and muscle spasms.
Because it has no additives, patients may experience less risk of developing antibodies to the drug and sustain longer duration of effectiveness and strength with multiple injections.
Typically, patients see results within a week and return for repeat treatments in about 3-6 months. This makes Xeomin® similar to Botox® in onset of treatment as well as length of duration of results. It should not be administered to individuals interchangeably with other neurotoxins.
As with other botulinum products, there are risks associated with treatment. Some of these include but are not limited to:
As with all medical procedures, you should discuss all the potential risks and side effects with your doctor.
