We have added Xeomin to our menu! We will continue to inject Botox as well, but it’s nice to have a gluten free, preservative free alternative to offer as well.
Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. Some patients have developed antibodies to Botox and Dysport.
Xeomin is the only one of the three (Xeomin, Botox and Dysport) injectables that does not need to be refrigerated before use, due to its lack of additives.
Xeomin may be “mildly more convenient” than Botox or Dysport, as the “product’s lack of complex proteins will help prevent antibody formation, or resistance to neuromuscular treatment with botulinum type A toxin, in patients being treated for neuromuscular conditions.
Botox and Xeomin ARE interchangeable: meaning you can inject Botox and then in 2 weeks touch up with Botox if needed. Or treat with Botox and then 3 months later try Xeomin.
When can I expect to see results from Xeomin injections?
You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection (MUCH FASTER THAN BOTOX). The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The maximum effect occurred at 30 days. The typical duration of effect was up to 3 months in clinical trials but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
Does Xeomin contain the same medication as Botox?
Well yes and no, Xeomin contains just one type of Botulinum Toxin- Type A. Botox contains 3. And no preservatives (Botox and Dysport both have preservatives).
Are there different side effects?
No, same side effects as Botox and Dysport.
Is there a price difference?
No, it’s the same price as Botox, as it has the same effectiveness.
Is Xeomin gluten free?

Vollure, Volbella, and Juvederm are all for lines and/or lips. They hydrate the lips and replace lost volume.
