I have officially added an alternative option to Botox. Don’t panic my Botox lovers! I will always have Botox available as well! *Xeomin* is a uniquely purified neurotoxin. *Xeomin* is made through a unique precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the complexing/unnecessary proteins that don't play an active role in treatment. I myself have had *Xeomin* and feel confident that the results are similar to Botox including the longevity.
*Xeomin Vs Botox: *
Xeomin and Botox both contain botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin works by blocking neuromuscular signals to relax targeted muscles at the injection site. Despite the fact that these treatments contain the same active ingredient, they have some differences in how they are formulated.
The main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin contains a “naked” form of botulinum toxin. Unlike Botox, which contains accessory proteins, Xeomin is designed to deliver the toxin without any protein additives. This purified structure may help prevent antibody resistance, a growing problem that has been seen with injections administered over time. Xeomin is manufactured by Merz Pharma and can be shipped at room temperature. Botox is manufactured by Allergan and is shipped frozen.
