Xeomin: Why It's a Purer Muscle Relaxant

If you’ve been looking for a way to smooth out deepening wrinkles, you’ve probably heard of Botox and Dysport . However, there is now a third FDA-approved treatment to paralyze wrinkles: Xeomin. It has already been used by more than 80,000 people worldwide to treat adults with cervical dystonia characterized by abnormal neck pain and movements, and it is now approved in 20 countries to treat facial wrinkles.

Xeomin works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing the targeted muscle not to contract. Although different types of wrinkle injections have a lot in common, there are three key differences with Xeomin:

1.    Xeomin does not need to be refrigerated, which is an advantage regarding distribution.
2.    Xeomin is lacking some of the proteins that are present in other muscle relaxants. The immune system breaks down those proteins eventually, leading to the need for more frequent treatments. Xeomin on the other hand is largely ignored by the immune system, so the effects last longer in some people.
3.    It is also made without any additives, which reduces the chance of an allergic reaction. The injections are composed of botulinum toxin type A and nothing else.

Xeomin takes about one week for the full effects of the treatment to be realized and lasts from three to six months. Like any other cosmetic procedure, Xeomin has its pros and cons and you should always consult with a skin care specialist before deciding on any treatment.
