It’s 2018. Another year, another wrinkle. OY.
Maybe you’ve built up a sensitivity to Botox? Maybe you’re a dude and feel funky about getting Botox, but wouldn’t mind trying a ‘natural facial muscle relaxer’ – so to speak.
Welp, more and more people are checking out Xeomin.
So, what’s XEOMIN®?
Well, like Botox, it’s a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults for a short period of time (temporary). In other words, it takes those awful “11’s” away.
The main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A.
Xeomin is the only one of the three (Xeomin, Botox and Dysport) injectables that does not need to be refrigerated before use, due to its lack of additives. Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives.
A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. Some patients have developed antibodies to Botox which means…it no longer works!
This is a great way to go for dudes (something about it seems more natural and it’s often marketed like that) and for first timers who are Botox curious.
