BOTOX VS. XEOMIN: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?Written by Lela Lankerani, MD, Board Certified Dermatologist on October 11, 2018 • 8 Comments
Botox and Xeomin are two types of injectable neurotoxins (forms of botulinum toxin type A) that have been approved by the FDA for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Many people think that Botox and Xeomin are basically the same thing. Probably the biggest myth about Xeomin is that it is simply a cheap and generic version of Botox. In reality, there are some significant differences between the two products. [Note: Dysport is yet another popular neurotoxin injectable that also differs from both Botox and Xeomin. Learn more about those differences here.]
BOTOX & XEOMIN: SIMILARITIESXeomin and Botox do share some similarities. Both treatments are effective in eliminating expression lines and wrinkles that occur due to repetitious muscle contractions involved in everyday facial movements. Specifically, both treatments have been FDA approved for addressing forehead wrinkles that occur due to squinting or raising of the eyebrows.
Both types of neurotoxins address lines and wrinkles in the same manner: by relaxing targeted facial muscles. When Botox or Xeomin are injected into the muscle they temporarily block the nerve impulses that are needed for contraction. The resulting muscle relaxation and decrease in movement reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the area.
The results of both Xeomin and Botox are temporary. After a period of time, both wear off and the nerve impulses begin to reach the muscle again (causing contractions and wrinkles to begin to appear again). This means that both treatments do require periodic maintenance (typically every 3-6 months) in order to maintain the results over time.
Finally, Botox and Xeomin are dosed similarly (i.e. 20 units of Botox equals the strength of 20 units of Xeomin). This is not the case when compared to other types of neurotoxins (i.e., Dysport).
BOTOX & XEOMIN: DIFFERENCESThe main difference between Xeomin and Botox has to do with the formulation. Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin. That is, Xeomin contains only a single ingredient (botulinum toxin A), while the formulation of Botox includes various protective proteins clustered around the active molecule. The benefit of Xeomin’s pure-form means users have a lower chance of developing resistance (antibodies) that can limit its desired effects.
Another difference between Botox and Xeomin is the onset of results. While the results of both treatments last for about the same duration (3-6 months), Xeomin requires up to 4 days for results to fully form, while Botox typically only requires about 72 hours.
The final major difference is behind the scenes: since the Xeomin formulation does not contain additional additives it does not have to be refrigerated before use. This feature simplifies distribution and storage of the product, which may make it more desirable than Botox to some clinical practices.
THE FINAL WORDIn the end, the choice between Botox and Xeomin may be best left to an experienced injector. A skilled provider will analyze your current facial characteristics and health history to determine the best course of treatment given your desired end result.

Dermal Fillers- (lips) are FDA approved and very safe . You will love how you look after your session. You are most likely familiar with popular injectable fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra and Radiesse., but one filler you may not have heard of yet is VERSA.
The official name is REVANESSE VERSA and it’s a relatively new dermal filler. Considered a multi-purpose dermal filler, it can be used to improve the appearance of facial areas such as the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and lips.
Like most fillers today, VERSA’s primary active ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid (HA). It is a naturally occurring substance that can be used aesthetically to correct facial lines and folds, as well as restore facial volume. However, not all fillers are created equal. VERSA is a homogenous filler due to the company’s advanced wet milling technology and proprietary formula. What this means is that the filler particles are spherical and uniform, which creates the ideal balance between volume and smoothness. When these particles are compared to Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane, there is a distinct difference with the others looking more jagged and inconsistent in shape.
The high viscosity of VERSA allows it to be easily injected with a very fine needling resulting in less disruption to the face. Studies have also shown that swelling occurs 24% more often with another popular dermal filler compared to VERSA. VERSA uses premium quality HA that has a higher molecular weight allowing it to break down slowly over time for added longevity.
