The Final Face Off: Botox Vs. Xeomin
- Posted on: Sep 15 2017
When it comes to getting rid of the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead, you have a variety of different options to choose from. As one of the most popular options, injections like Botox and Xeomin are effective at temporarily softening your wrinkles. But, what are the differences between these two injectables and how you can land on a decision that’s right for you? Read on to learn more.
Botox is one of the most popular brands in the cosmetic surgery industry. Made of botulinum toxin A and other complex proteins, Botox works to temporarily relax the muscles in your face which in turn disallows you to move your face or make movements— leaving you with smooth skin in the process. One of the great things about Botox is that patients start to see results about 48-72 hours directly after getting injections.
Xeomin and Botox work similarly by targeting the muscles in the face to help soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the main things that separate Xeomin from Botox is that Xeomin is made up entirely of botulinum toxin A. Additionally because Xeomin is made up entirely of botulinum toxin A, it takes a little longer for patients to start seeing results. In fact, it typically takes patients about four full days to start seeing results from Xeomin.
As you age, your skin starts to lose collagen, volume, and elasticity, leaving you with more fine lines and wrinkles than you may care to admit you have.
