Xeomin is a neuromodulator that is in the same class as Botox®. Xeomin is FDA approved for aesthetic use in the human face including the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles in the glabella. It is also has therapeutic indications and is the first-line therapy for blepharospasm. Both Botox and Xeomin can be used throughout the face in a safe fashion. Most commonly, both are utilized in the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), around the lip lines, and along the neck. Bruising is uncommon, and swelling resolves within an hour. Each of these treatments are common “lunchtime” interventions.
There is no mistaking the brand presence of Botox®, but also consider that Botox® was introduced back in the 1980’s. There have been a number of innovations in neuromodulation since the landmark discovery of Botox. Xeomin is the next step in the neuromodulator market. It provides the purest form of neuromodulation on the market, spares the possibility of preservative allergy/rejection, and acts faster while lasting just as long as Botox®. Welcome to the next level of neuromodulators.
Xeomin is Uniquely Purified
Xeomin is the only highly purified neurotoxin on the market that uses a patented process called, Xtract Technology. Xeomin was created and is produced by Merz Aesthetics, a 112 year pharmaceutical company that focuses on nothing but aesthetic products. Their scientists developed the Xtract Technology to remove all of the unnecessary proteins away from the active toxin molecule. Their goal was to achieve an end-product that was as pure as possible. That makes sese, right? Why would anyone want impurities in a product that they would inject into their face? If they could minimize those impurities, wouldn’t they achieve a better purifies toxin than other available products on the market? So, using their special Xtract Technology, Merz is able to eliminate all the unecessary proteins that can result in immunogenicity and dose creep. And, in a double-blind patient satisfaction study, Xeomin had a 93% satisfaction rate at month four and that’s 3% higher than Botox. In a world where some of our patients are more conscious than ever about what they put in their body’s, Xeomin is a great option.
