Xeomin® is a variant of the medication in Botox® and is manufactured by Merz Pharma. Xeomin had been tried and tested for several years before the FDA approved its use in the U.S. in 2010. Like Botox, Xeomin is used for treatment of dynamic lines and wrinkles of the skin.
Xeomin comes in white powder form then gets reconstituted before injection. Xeomin and Botox differ by a protein that is attached to Botox but not to Xeomin. There seems to be no superiority of one brand over another and the choice of treatment is based on the physician’s experience and the patient’s preference.
Results of Xeomin
The results of Xeomin are often seen within 3 to 5 days and last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. Repeated Xeomin injections in regular intervals seem to prolong the duration of efficacy.
