Neuromodulators – Botox and Xeomin
Botox and Xeomin address lines and wrinkles in the same manner: by relaxing targeted facial muscles. When Botox or Xeomin are injected into the muscle they temporarily block the nerve impulses that are needed for contraction. The resulting muscle relaxation and decrease in movement reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the area.

It’s a quick procedure (10-20 minutes) with zero downtime. Our approach to Botox/Xeomin is less is more. We administer just enough product to achieve a younger look while maintaining your ability to show expression. The results of both Xeomin and Botox are temporary. After a period of time, both wear off and the nerve impulses begin to reach the muscle again (causing contractions and wrinkles to begin to appear again). This means that both treatments do require periodic maintenance (typically every 3-6 months) in order to maintain the results over time.

What Is Xeomin, and What Does It Do?

Xeomin is a form of botulism toxin that is used to block muscle movement in areas that contribute to wrinkles. It is used in the forehead, typically between the brows to soften frown lines. Unlike filler, Xeomin only impacts muscle movement, and has no effect on filling deep wrinkles that have already formed.

The same ingredients in Botox and Dysport are used, though Xeomin is somewhat of a purer form of the toxin. With Botox or Dysport, the active part of the toxin is encapsulated in complexing and accessory proteins. Xeomin, however, undergoes an extra step of purification so that there is no complexing protein.

Why do we like and use Xeomin?

The main difference between Xeomin and Botox has to do with the formulation. Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin. That is, Xeomin contains only a single ingredient (botulinum toxin A), while the formulation of Botox includes various protective proteins clustered around the active molecule. The benefit of Xeomin’s pure form means users have a lower chance of developing resistance (antibodies) that can limit its desired effects.
