What Are BOTOX® and XEOMIN®?
Both injections are made from similar compounds. BOTOX® contains additive while XEOMIN® only contains the main ingredient. BOTOX® tends to take effect faster. XEOMIN® is actually the slowest acting of any facial injection, meaning it will take longer to see results. BOTOX® will begin to take effect in about 72 hours; it takes XEOMIN® over 4 days before results can be seen.
However, XEOMIN® does have one main advantage over BOTOX®. Due to it not having any other additives, a patient will be less likely to receive the treatment negatively. The body won’t be creating antibodies to fight any of the ingredients found in XEOMIN®.
Which One Is Right for You?
A study in which individuals were given each drug at the same time on each side of the face, BOTOX® was the clear winner. Test subjects were found to have a longer reduction of crow’s feet, frown lines, and other wrinkles for the entire study. Test subjects were checked at 2 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, and 4 months, and most subjects showed that it was the superior product.
However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is also right for you. XEOMIN® may be the choice you ultimately go with due to its lower risk.
