Xeomin is an effective neuromodulator, approved by the FDA in the USA and HPB in Canada. It is used world wide and has the same safety profile as Botox and Dysport. Feel free to discuss these products with your dermatologist, but treatments are elective cosmetic procedures.
Xeomin is toxic. And it doesn't work well. You couldn't pay me to use it. Why do doctors push something so toxic on the public?

Hi and thanks for posting your question here! Xeomin is an FDA-approved medication that belongs to the same family as Botox and Dysport, as they all share similar active ingredient - Botulinum Toxin Type A. However the way it has been purified and processed is different from other medications in the same family and actually it has less collateral proteins which might offer some benefits. It generally works as good as Botox in the head to head studies. Lots of people at my practice like it and get it on routine basis. What really matters is the technique and experience of the injector. I hope this helps and good luck!

Xeomin and Safety
Xeomin: does it work and is it safe?
Toxic??: I think Not.
Xeomin, although newer to the United States, has been used in millions of people around the world. Botox has had a longer history in the United States. Essentially, Botox has an active core that is surrounded by extraneous proteins. Xeomin, has a very similar active core, with far less extraneous protein content that Botox. This would make the Xeomin product less reactive because it is in effect a more pure formulation. The word toxic, in my opinion, does not apply here at all. It would be interesting to note just what it is that has caused you to formulate an opinion that it is toxic and doesn't work well. Further, with the millions of Botox treatments being performed in the United States, why are you not thinking that doctors aren't pushing Botox on the public? What makes Xeomin any different? I would be interested to know your answers.
