What Is the Difference Between BOTOX Cosmetic and XEOMIN?


BOTOX® Cosmetic and XEOMIN® are treatments that help lessen the appearance of wrinkles and other types of fine lines. They are small proteins that work to temporarily change the nerve impulses of specific muscles. These injections are popular methods of eliminating fine lines and noticeable wrinkles. They commonly target lines across the forehead, crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, and lines around the neck.

These injections are safe for all skin colors and skin types, but it is not recommended for women who are breastfeeding or pregnant. Both of these injectables are inserted into the intended site of the muscle with a very fine needle. Full results from XEOMIN® can be seen about a week after treatment, and the same goes for BOTOX® Cosmetic.

XEOMIN® is an injectable that is newer to the market and it contains only one ingredient. It is considered to be the purest option available on the market because it does not contain any additives. Since XEOMIN® only contains one ingredient, it is more stable and does not need to be refrigerated. Not having to refrigerate the XEOMIN® makes it more convenient to distribute; thus, making it more cost efficient too. The exclusion of additives also means that the individual getting the XEOMIN® injection will not be prone to developing any allergic reactions.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is used for the treatment of wrinkle reduction and elimination, just like it’s counterpart. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections contain a purified protein solution. Since there are added components to BOTOX® Cosmetic, it needs to be refrigerated to ensure that it is not compromised and rendered ineffective. The shelf life of BOTOX® Cosmetic is more delicate than XEOMIN® and needs to be stored in the proper environment to protect its potency.

Both treatment options are effective methods of removing undesired facial lines.
