Botox and Xeomin are two popular injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. While Botox is a household name, Xeomin is a lesser known treatment that also has botulinum toxin A formulation to treat facial aging. Although both these injectables serve the same purpose, there are some differences in their use and formulation. Khan Eyelid and Facial Aesthetics, led by oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Tanya Khan, provides both Botox and Xeomin to patients in Plano, Dallas, Austin, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Difference Between Botox and Xeomin
Xeomin is considered a “naked” form of neurotoxin as it does not contain the added proteins that Botox does. The purified form of Xeomin helps prevent the body from building up antibody resistance that may occur with repeated injections, which could reduce effectiveness. Xeomin may be a more ideal treatment for patients that receive injections frequently and have stopped seeing ideal results, or that have allergies to Botox. Results from Xeomin may take a day or two longer to appear versus Botox, but is a very similar treatment in terms of procedure, cost, and longevity of results.
What Can Be Treated with Botox or Xeomin?

Crow’s feet: Lines at the corners of the eyes
