WHAT IS THE BEST ANTI-AGING TREATMENT OF 2022?
- Botox and Xeomin are two of the most effective treatments available for wrinkles on the market. They’re also more cost-effective and less risky than options such as a surgical facelift. Results typically appear within days after treatment and last for months.
But what are the differences between Xeomin and Botox? Let’s hear from Allergan and Merz directly to see what may be best for you!
Why BOTOX® COSMETIC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an established brand that delivers consistent results. In a survey, people treated† with BOTOX® Cosmetic say it:
- Is a brand they trust
- Produces predictable results
- Provides subtle results
When surveyed, 62% of respondents say treatment is worth the investment.‡ In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its kind evaluated by the FDA for safety and efficacy in three treatment areas, as well as for patient satisfaction in frown lines and forehead lines in adults.
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.
Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
The Smart Toxin Formula
We believe the purity and performance of the product matter. That’s why we take the time to double filter our smart toxin with a proprietary XTRACT Technology™ process.
Our unique formula removes unnecessary proteins so the active ingredient contains only what is needed to smooth frown lines, treatment after treatment.* Time is on your side, and so are we.
FDA APPROVED. CLINICALLY PROVEN.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
STATE-OF-THE-ART MANUFACTURING PROCESS.
Xeomin® is made through a unique precision manufacturing process called XTRACT Technology™, that uses two filtration steps to isolate the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the complexing/unnecessary proteins that don’t play an active role in treatment. Xeomin® is a double filtered neurotoxin. Head-to-head studies evaluating the relative risk of immunogenicity due to the presence or absence of complexing/unnecessary proteins have not been performed.
So Which Is Better ?
The reality is , we don’t know. It is possible that certain people will respond better to one or the other, and the reason for that is unknown.
This is why it is so important to educate yourself, and talk to your aesthetic provider in detail about what your goals and preferences are prior to having any toxin injected.
