A E Skin is excited to offer a new neuromodulator called Xeomin, an alternative to Botox. Similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin will relax muscles on the face to improve wrinkles on areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes, to name a few. While Xeomin is the newest such product that has been approved by the FDA, it has been used for several years in Europe under the name Bocouture; and it is made by Merz Aesthetics, the same company that makes Radiesse. Xeomin is similar to Botox and Dysport in that they all last three to four months. Xeomin seems to have a faster onset of action than Botox, meaning that the results are seen faster. Compared to Dysport, Xeomin (and Botox) do not spread as much, which is important because spreading can lead to side effects such as blurred vision and droopy eyelids. The biggest difference between Xeomin and the other neuromodulators is the structure of the protein. Because of this difference, Xeomin has a decreased risk of allergic reactions compared to Botox and Dysport. Another advantage is that Xeomin is stored at room temperature before reconstitution, decreasing the likelihood of degradation.
