What Is The Difference In Botox & Xeomin?

What Is The Difference In Botox & Xeomin?

Almost no one is a stranger to the brand Botox. You hear it on the mouths of stars, in popular shows, in the neighborhood lady’s groups, and even from some of your best friends. Botox has been intensely treating fine lines and wrinkles for over 15 years until Xeomin entered the medical spa market. Many of our customers ask us, what is the main difference between the two other than price? In this post we will go over both neuromodulators, describe exactly what they do, and explain how they are different.

What is a Neuromodulator?

Before we can begin to compare Botox and Xeomin, it is important that our clients actually know what a neuromodulator is. A neuromodulator is a tiny protein that interferes with synaptic transmissions in our nerve cells preventing the nerve to react in a way that can create a furrow in the skin which over time sustains a more permanent wrinkle.  The neuromodulator used in both Botox and Xeomin is Botulinum toxin type A disables certain nerve endings, depending on placement, which will change the way your face hangs, folds, and moves while making facial expressions. Both Botox and Xeomin have been scientifically proven to provide equally pleasing results in most cases but the differences of the two are in the price and functionality.

Why Botox?

Botox was the first Botulinum toxin type A to be marketed and FDA approved that effectively reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, including crows feet and frown lines between the eyebrows.

Why Xeomin?

Xeomin has the same active ingrediant as Botox but is considered to be the most purest form of Botulinum toxin type A as it has no additives. It also does not need to be stored in a refrigerator or shipped with dry ice like it’s competitor Botox. This helps reduce the overall price down to around $8.
