Xeomin® at Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar
Xeomin®, Botox® and Dysport™️ are all wrinkle reducers commonly used to reduce expression lines and wrinkles.
For some patients, Botox® and Xeomin® may be used interchangeably. For others there may be a preference for one over the other. Some patients report experiencing a quicker onset with Xeomin®. You may notice a decrease in muscle activity in about 2-3 days, with full effect in 7 days. Other patients report a “lighter feeling” when having treatment in their brow than when having Dysport™️.
Xeomin® is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. It is possible to develop antibodies to Botox® and Dysport™️ over time, causing them to become less effective or to have shorter duration.
Neither Xeomin®, Botox® nor Dysport™️ are permanent treatments, They are temporary, and eventually the muscle activity will return. With treatments 2-3 times a year you will be able slow down the progression of expression lines and wrinkles, to help you maintain a more well rested, relaxed and more youthful appearance.
