What is Xeomin?
BOTOX® and Dysport users who have not seen the results they anticipated have found success with Xeomin.
Xeomin is much like BOTOX and Dysport, but it does not contain the same proteins as they do, which means it doesn’t affect patients the same way. Some patients see amazing results from Xeomin, while others don’t. The only way to know if you’ll love Xeomin is to have the treatment.
Xeomin is a neuromodulator. It relaxes facial muscles, after they have become stiff, which is what causes the fine lines and wrinkles. The Xeomin solution contains botulinum type A in a very small dose like BOTOX® to block the nerve activity in the muscles.
Xeomin has worked wonders on many people. Fine lines and deep wrinkles have been wiped away with this treatment for smoother, younger looking skin.
Just look at some of the before and after photos of some of our patients. You’ll see the amazing power of Xeomin in improving the look and feel of users’ skin.

Xeomin is the latest option that works similarly to Botox and Dysport. Xeomin is a neuromodulator, which like Botox and Dysport is used to relax facial muscles that lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Xeomin contains botulinum type A, which blocks the nerve activity in select muscles. Unlike Botox and Dysport, Xeomin does not contain proteins that may make the product ineffective for a small number of patients. This means that if you’re one of the patients that doesn’t get the results you’re looking for from Botox or Dysport, Xeomin might be worth a try.
