In the past, people had very few effective options when it came to anti-aging, especially if they didn’t want surgery. Now, all of that has changed! You have probably heard of Botox, but there are other options too, including Xeomin. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL, we offer both, and we’d like to take a little time to tell you how Xeomin is different from Botox.
Xeomin is a neuromodulator that is used to improve the appearance of unwanted glabellar lines. It is administered with a few quick, virtually painless injections. People are starting to demand this treatment more and more frequently as word gets out about its effectiveness, lasting results, and fast appointment times.
How Is Xeomin Different From Botox?
These two treatments are both highly effective options that address fine lines and wrinkles. So, what makes them different?
First, How Are They the Same?
In reality, these treatments have more similarities than dissimilarities. They both improve your skin’s smoothness by limiting the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. Here are some other similarities:
- Fast-showing results
- Long-lasting results
- Convenient appointments
- Natural-looking results
- High safety rating
- High patient satisfaction
- No surgery
- Minimal invasiveness
- No downtime
- Effectiveness for people of all skin types
As you can see, these two treatments have a lot in common. However, there are some subtle differences. Understanding them can help you choose between the two.
The Botulinum Toxin They Use Is Different
The substance that makes both of these treatments work is botulinum toxin, which helps control your muscle contractions. Botox uses onabotulinumtoxinA, which is a version that has some proteins. This treatment uses incobotulinumtoxinA, which does not have proteins.
The only reason this might matter for you is that some people develop an immunity to the form of botulinum toxin used in Botox. When that happens, they can’t renew their results. The botulinum toxin in this treatment is unknown to cause immunity. However, we should note that this only affects a tiny percentage of the people who use injectables as part of their cosmetic care.
They Will Each Evoke a Different Response From You
Choosing between these two treatments is like choosing between different breakfast cereals. Everyone has their own personal preference. Because everyone’s skin is unique, we each respond to these treatments in slightly different ways. The one you choose is just a matter of which you think performs the best on you.
This Treatment Focuses on Glabellar Lines
Botox is used for many different cosmetic services, from improving excessive sweating to doing lip enhancements without filler. This treatment, on the other hand, is specifically focused on softening the lines that appear between your eyebrows. These wrinkles, called glabellar lines or frown lines, are in a particularly dynamic area of the face and could be among the first you start to see.
Botox Came First
Part of the reason you may have heard more about Botox is that it was the first neuromodulator to be FDA approved for cosmetic use, and it has had many years to build a positive reputation for itself. However, you should know that just because Xeomin is lesser-known doesn’t mean it is less effective.
Benefits of Xeomin
It Is Very Effective
This treatment is one of the surest ways to make a big impact on your fine lines and wrinkles. It works on the muscles that cause them by tensing repeatedly over many years. By helping them to stay relaxed, the botulinum toxin lets the surface of your skin smooth out.
Results Show In Just a Few Days
After your injections, you will only need to wait a few days to see improvements in your skin. These changes will continue for the next two weeks until the final results have been achieved.
Results Last 3-4 Months
With just one round of injections, you will get results that stay true for 3-4 months. After that, it is perfectly safe to repeat the treatment to renew its effect. Plus, there is no upper limit to the number of times you can have this service done.
The Appointment Is Fast
So fast, in fact, that you can even schedule it for a break during your workday. Half an hour is the usual amount of time it takes to check you in, do your injections, and get you back into your normal routine.
No Down Time
There is no need to take time off work or plan for a lengthy recovery because this treatment doesn’t require any downtime. You will barely feel the injections, and you will be on your feet and out the door immediately after they are done.
