BOTOX® has gained a reputation for delivering age-defying cosmetic results. For years, it has dominated the market. The procedure has become so popular that competitors are springing up. However, few people know about the other choices. In the Granite Bay area, BOTOX® is just one of the many treatment options available.
Our aim is to educate you on the most trusted and effective treatments available. In that spirit, we will discuss BOTOX® and XEOMIN®. Chances are you may not have heard of the latter. But it has been used in Europe since 2008 and was FDA-approved in 2011. Nevertheless, many patients have not had it presented to them as a treatment option.
Nancy Shibayama, M.D. strives to stay at the forefront of aesthetic medicine. That is the reason she educates her clients on both of the top treatment options. Her office is one of the most respected and trusted aesthetic medicine facilities in the Granite Bay area.
What Can BOTOX® and XEOMIN® Improve?
These are injectable treatments. They both are proven to reduce the appearance of frown lines between the brow area and other facial wrinkles. Results are temporary and follow-up treatments are needed to maintain your renewed appearance. Overall, the spectrum of uses, administration, and recovery time is equal between the two treatments. That brings us to the question of why you might be a better candidate for one over the other.
Which is Right for You?
One of the most obvious differences between XEOMIN® and BOTOX® is that the former lacks the carrier proteins found in the latter. It is called the naked BOTOX® for this reason. It has no need for refrigeration because it is free of the additives that BOTOX® uses. Deciding which product is the best option for you has little to do with whether one product is superior to the other, and more to do with your individual wants and needs. Only a skilled professional can guide you in picking the correct treatment.
