Aesthetic Clinique, formerly known as Forever Young Medspa, is proud to offer Xeomin as an injectable. Xeomin is a Botox alternative designed for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
Xeomin can treat several areas of the face and numerous types of wrinkles:
Xeomin can also address vertical neck bands. Additionally, it may be used to contour the jaw and jawline, to treat migraine headaches, and address excess sweating in the armpits and other regions (hyperhidrosis).
Xeomin is not used to treat depressions in the undereye areas or moderate to harsh lines on the cheeks and around the mouth. Dermal fillers are typically a better choice for these issues.
A few differences…
Xeomin is considered to be “pure” and unlike BOTOX & Dysport it does not contain any additives so it is less likely that a patient will develop a resistance to Xeomin.
Xeomin does not require refrigeration
Also unlike Dysport, Xeomin is injected with the exact same dosage as BOTOX unit for unit and this is important as some centers try and mislead unsuspecting patients with per-unit prices. As an example, the average patient requires 40-55 (men require more) units to treat the three most common areas of the face with either BOTOX or Xeomin as they inject unit for unit the same. Dysport requires 2.5 times more units than either BOTOX or Xeomin. Not a bad thing just a different formulation. So when you see Dysport advertised with 50 units for $300 it sounds good but it’s only the equivalent of 20 units of BOTOX or Xeomin.
Generally, both Xeomin & Dysport are about 10% less than BOTOX as each tries to capture market share away from Allergan. In terms of efficacy, there have been no independent studies that show any significant measurable difference between the three other than Dysport which seems to have a faster onset of action than either BOTOX or Dysport. This simply means that in general, Dysport works faster.
Xeomin requires no downtime or recovery time. There is a risk that all Botulinum toxin products may spread from the area where they were injected to other parts of the body, causing potentially life-threatening swallowing and breathing problems. This was predominantly seen in children treated with Botox off-label for cerebral palsy which often require very large doses. These issues have not been reported among people who received Botulinum products for cosmetic uses or to treat blepharospasm.
Other risks may include bleeding and bruising at the injection site and allergic reactions such as itching, swelling, or shortness of breath. Your practitioner should discuss all the potential risks of this procedure with you during your consultation.
When Xeomin is used to treat cervical dystonia, side effects include neck pain, muscle weakness, injection site pain, and musculoskeletal pain. When used to treat blepharospasm, the most common side effects Botulinum products were eyelid sagging, dry eye, dry mouth, diarrhea, headache, visual impairment, shortness of breath (dyspnea), and upper respiratory infections.
