Xeomin is an FDA-approved alternative to Botox for glabellar wrinkles
Xeomin and Botox work the same way to paralyze muscles and smooth wrinkles. They share the identical active ingredient - botulinum toxin A. The difference is that Botox has an accompanying protein, but xeomin is naked. In the skin, all of the protein detaches from Botox within 1 minute of injection so there is no reason why the effect of xeomin should differ from Botox. Xeomin has proven effective in clinical trials. It is approved in Europe and the US to diminish glabellar (between the...
Xeomin Vs. Botox
Xeomin is another neurotoxin - it is in the same category as Botox and Dysport. It has been used in Europe for many years. It has less proteins then Botox, possibly making it less stable and possibly reducing the chance of resistance. We have been using it in our office for a while and have had results consistant of Botox so far - however the cost to the consumer is cheaper with Xeomin as it stands now. Dr. Grant Stevens

Xeomin and Botox are both botulinum toxin type A
This is a very pertinent question, but it really is difficult to answer simply by stating one or the other is better. The fact is that both products have the same active molecule, the botulinum toxin type A. Because of differences in the way that each is prepared they come "packaged" a little differently chemically, but they are still the same drug. I think the thing to note is that when using these drugs, nobody can really determine with absolute accuracy generalized...
Xeomin Vs. Botox
Xeomin is the third toxins approved by the FDA for the treatment of glabellar furrows - the lines between the eyes. What makes Xeomin different is that it is called a pure neurotoxin - that is, the others (Botox and Dysport) have associated proteins with them on their molecule which leaves after the injection itself. Xeomin does not have these proteins. Does it really make a difference? Probably not. Most clinicians will tell you Xeomin is very similar to Botox in its onset...
Xeomin is similar to Botox and possibly cheaper to the patient.
Xeomin is another Botulinum toxin A like Botox and Dysport with a very similar safety profile and effectiveness. I have used all three and find that each works very effectively when used to reduce wrinkles and shape your brow position. Hope this helps..Laurie A. Casas,MD
