Every single year, medical professionals produce new treatments that are designed to treat cosmetic problems associated with aging. As these new products come to the market, there is a lot of curiosity about what these products are, how they work and whether or not they are safe. This is true of the product XEOMIN®.
XEOMIN® is very similar to BOTOX® in that it is used by cosmetic professionals to address dynamic wrinkles, especially frown lines between the eyebrows. The product has been reviewed and approved by the FDA. This approval came after the FDA did two separate clinical trials. The results of these trials were released and discussed in the Journal of Neurological Sciences. In part, these tests showed that XEOMIN® was able to produce the same effects that BOTOX® did when used to treat certain conditions.
Since its release, more than 80,000 individuals have used XEOMIN® in connection with cosmetic procedures. In fact, the FDA-approval of the drug in the United States makes the United States the 20th country to give this drug their full approval.
Since this product produces effects that are similar to those produced by BOTOX®, a person might ask which one is better. Each drug has its benefits. One of the benefits of XEOMIN® is that it does not need to be stored in a refrigerator prior to using it. This might make the distribution of the product a lot easier since it can be shipped from one place to another without being transported in a refrigerated container. This could also mean that cosmetic professionals will have a larger supply of this product on hand because certain storage issues are eliminated.
Another benefit of XEOMIN® is that nothing additional has been added, and so it’s harder for the human body to create antibodies against this product as opposed to other products that are used in cosmetic procedures. The idea is that the human body creates antibodies when it notes a foreign substance that it perceives to be attacking the body. Products that have additives in them are more likely to trigger this response than XEOMIN®. As a result, there is less chance of XEOMIN® having its effects nullified by the production of antibodies.
Both BOTOX® and XEOMIN® start to take effect after one week, and both products remain in your system for about six months. It is good to note that these products should not be used together or interchangeably.
