With the release of the new Xeomin anti-wrinkle injectable, how do we know which to choose? Botox, Dysport or Xeomin?
We sat down with Ashlee Woodward Cosmetic specialist registered nurse at Dr. Laith Barnouti’s clinic at Plastic Surgery Sydney, who has been using Xeomin both on her patients and herself since it was released. She answered some of our most frequently asked questions about the new ‘anti-frown injectable’ Xeomin.
What do you prefer to treat patients with Xeomin / Botox or other?
Ashlee – I think because fewer people have heard of Xeomin it may not be as popular at this point in time.
But once I have used Xeomin on my clients they are just as happy to continue using the product regularly as if it was Botox or Dysport.
What do you prefer to use for yourself Xeomin / Botox or other?
Ashlee – I personally have tried all three botulinum toxin anti wrinkle products and feel that all have similar attributes. After a two week period I could not tell the different between all of the brands as they all gave great results with lasting effects.
Have you noticed any side effects of Xeomin?
Ashlee – I have noticed the usual redness and small amount of inflammation after injecting, which disappears generally after twenty minutes post injections. I also get the occasional headache a few days after using the Xeomin, this usually occurs with any anti wrinkle product I use.
In your opinion, what are the benefits of Xeomin?
Ashlee – I believe that Xeomin is much more cost effective for consumers and will make non invasive cosmetic procedures more enticing for old and new clients on a budget.
Xeomin also does not need to be refrigerated unlike other botulin toxin products. This makes medical professionals less concerned about the storage of the product.
This new drug is also considered very safe by the FDA and patients feel safe knowing they are using a safe product with less side effects.
How do you think Xeomin will compare to the high percentage use of Botox in the non-surgical cosmetic industry?
Ashlee – I feel at first Xeomin will not be as popular due to the fact that some consumers will want to stick with their regular brand, but once the Xeomin is more readily available and clients are educated about it I think more people will feel comfortable to use the brand.
This drug does not contain any additional additives, which means it is less likely to cause allergic reactions.
