Botox is a botulinum toxin that is injected directly into the muscle in your face that causes wrinkles.
Once injected, the muscle relaxes and releases the tension cause the visible signs of wrinkles.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is also a botulinum toxin which performs the same wrinkle-reducing duties as Botox.
What Is the Difference?
The main difference between Botox and Xeomin is that Xeomin contains only the botulinum toxin without any additional ingredients.
Botox contains accessory proteins along with the botulinum toxin.
Is Xeomin Safer than Botox?
Due to the pure nature of Xeomin, many physicians have found that patients are ale to better tolerate Xeomin.
In fact, Xeomin is an ideal treatment for patients who have become resistant to Botox over time due to the accessory proteins in the mix.
However, most patients are able to tolerate Botox without issues and it remains the gold standard for targeting unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face.
