Xeomin® wrinkle blocker, is somewhat different than Botox® and Dysport®. The difference in Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is that it does not carry the proteins that are typical of the other products. The manufacturing process removes the proteins so that Xeomin is referred to as the “naked” botulinum product.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, your skin ages and repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions to occur and are subsequently softened.
The potential advantage lies in the lessened likelihood of antibodies being formed to the proteins which – for a very limited number of patients – can render the product ineffective.
It’s sometimes quicker effect is a factor for some people but there’s no guarantee you’ll be frown free in 3 days. As time goes on, which one you select will become your preference.
