Many have heard of XEOMIN® as an alternative to BOTOX®. However, they may wonder what exactly it is, if it is more beneficial than BOTOX® and what it can do for them.
XEOMIN® is injected into the facial muscles in order to cause them to relax. It is a product that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to be used for cosmetic purposes. Its main purpose is treating frown lines that individuals begin to notice between their eyebrows as they get older. These frown lines are also referred to as glabellar lines.
This injectable has only been approved by the FDA to be used by adults. The truth is individuals who are on the younger side do not normally have frown lines that need to be treated using this product.
XEOMIN® is injected into the facial muscles in order to smooth the skin and give a person a much younger appearance. After a couple of days from the time the product is injected, individuals should begin to notice that the wrinkles between their brows disappear. The skin that is on top of those wrinkles is left smooth. The results may last for about six months.
As was previously mentioned, BOTOX® is one of the most popular products that is used for treating dynamic wrinkles. However, there are benefits that a person can experience by using a product like XEOMIN®. One of the main benefits that a person is going to experience is that the chance of an allergic reaction is decreased with this product. XEOMIN® contains no additives, so experiencing an allergic reaction is much less probable. Another benefit is that it does not need to be refrigerated.
One of the things that individuals are concerned about when getting any kind of cosmetic treatment done is experiencing discomfort. When individuals who have used this product have been asked to rate their discomfort on a scale of one to five, with one being the least amount of discomfort, most people gave the injection a discomfort rate of two.
