How Long Does Xeomin Last?
Doctor Answers 16
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.
About the Same as Botox
Xeomin typically lasts the same amount of time as botox. I have seen people metabolize botox and xeomin differently, however the duration is usually 3-4 months.
How long does Xeomin last
Xeomin lasts about 3-6 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.
