I have heard some people say Xeomin lasts longer than Botox, and some say it doesn't last as long. I know it will vary from person to person, but how long is Xeomin expected to last, approximately?
How Long Does Xeomin Last?
Doctor Answers 12
Different people respond differently to the various brands of botulinum toxin (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Myobloc). In general, they all last about the same. My recommendation is to try them out and see how you respond. There is no toxin that last twice as long as the others. If one lasts longer in you than another, it is a matter of days, not weeks or months longer. So it really is not a consideration when choosing your injectable.
How Long Does Xeomin Last?
Based on my experience, and as confirmed by the literature I've read, Xeomin is essentially interchangeable with the other neuromodulators in terms of effectiveness and duration of correction. Dosaging is different (100 units of Botox = 100 of Xeomin = about 300 of Dysport) but assuming equivalence of dosage (and how fresh it is, etc) they are largely similar treatments.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
Longevity of Xeomin
For most people the results of Xeomin is about the same as other wrinkle reducers, and depends on the dosage and probably the genetics of the person, and exact placement of the product.
Of my 9 staff, only one found that Xeomin didn't last as well for her, when we all tried it when it first came on the market.
When it first came out, some of my patients thought it worked at their crows feet better than other toxins they had tried. It hasn't been around for years yet, so as we all gain more experince with it, more answers and impressions may be available.
Smaller doses will last less long than a stronger dose, all else being equal.

Clinically, these two products behave the same.
While there is really not good science to supprot this conclusion, some believe that the effect kicks in a little faster than BOTOX. I am not sure I believe this. However, on longevity, there is no clinical difference: treatment lasts about 4 to 6 months.
Duration of Xeomin's effect
This depends on the amount of material injected and the location into which it was injected.
Many of my patients find that the longer they do the injections, the longer the effects last, and they need re-treatments less frequently.
How Long Does Xeomin Last
Xeomin lasts about the same as Botox
There is not a significant difference in how long Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin last. It is about 3-6 months.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.

This is a topic that is certainly an area of debate, primarily in the professional cosmetic world.
All the companies want their product to last the longest or at least be perceived that way, but whether there is a difference remains to be seen.
I am currently working on a very large study right now to answer this question, or at least better understand it. So hopefully we will have an answer in the near future. But as others mentioned, right now all products appear to last about the same time if dosed properly.
