When it comes to non-invasive anti-aging treatments, botox is way ahead of the pack. However, xeomin hit the market as an alternative to botox a few years ago, and has slowly been making inroads and taking some market share. But since xeomin is a new player in the anti-aging game, patients often ask the question – Will xeomin relax my wrinkles.
What is xeomin
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is essentially another brand of botulinum toxin type A, the others being botox and dysport. Unlike the other brands, xeomin does not have any protein additives, so it’s considered a pure form of botulinum toxin. In addition, xeomin does not need to be refrigerated before use.
Will xeomin relax your wrinkles
Yes, Xeomin is actually a wrinkle remedy that is FDA approved for treating wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines). It can also be used to treat crow’s feet and forehead lines, which are all dynamic wrinkles.
Xeomin is a neurotoxin and works in a similar fashion to botox, as it blocks the release of chemicals that would cause the facial muscles to contract. If the muscles don’t contract, the overlying skin eventually becomes smoother, and this reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
It takes about 3-5 days for the effects of xeomin to kick in, and the results last 4-6 months.
So yes, xeomin will relax your wrinkles, and it’s likely to be around for a long time.
