How Much Does Xeomin® Cost?

When you smile, laugh, or frown, your facial muscles pull and crease your skin. Over time, these creases become more prominent and do not go away even when your face is at rest. If this sounds like your situation, you can get rid of those wrinkles and creases with Xeomin®. This neuromodulator targets facial muscles to let the skin relax and smooth lines and wrinkles. 

What is Xeomin®?

Xeomin® is one of several available neuromodulators, but it has unique properties that make providers reach for it. Neuromodulators like Xeomin® smooth away dynamic wrinkles caused by muscles’ action on the facial skin. They are not as effective for static wrinkles caused by loose skin and collagen loss. They are among the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world, thanks to their ability to help you look younger and more refreshed with no surgery or recovery time.

How Does Xeomin® Work?

All neuromodulators use different versions of botulinum A, the active ingredient. Xeomin® is often referred to as the “naked” neuromodulator because, unlike Botox® or Dysport®, its botulinum A has no accessory proteins surrounding it. This gives it somewhat different properties, but all three work in the same way at the level of the nerves and muscles. Xeomin® works by stopping the facial nerves from sending signals to the muscles. Without these signals, the muscles stop contracting. The skin relaxes and becomes smoother, letting your lines and wrinkles fade away. 

How Much Does Xeomin® Cost?

Many factors affect the cost of your Xeomin® treatment, including:

  • Your location
  • Your provider
  • Number of areas treated
  • Number of units needed for each area
  • Your desired results

One of the main cost variables for neurotoxins like Xeomin® is how many units your provider uses to treat you. Xeomin® and Botox® usually have a similar price per unit. Dysport® typically costs less per unit but may require more units to achieve the same results. 

As with all neuromodulators, you should consider that Xeomin® lasts a few months, and you will need repeated treatments if you want to maintain your results. While repeated neuromodulator treatments over long periods can make some people less responsive, Xeomin®’s formula is less likely to have this effect. 

How is Xeomin® Different from Botox® and Dysport®?

Many people have become interested in Xeomin® as a purified alternative to Botox® and Dysport®. Without the accessory proteins used by its competitors, Xeomin® is less likely to attract the immune system’s attention. Over time, repeated exposure can cause the body to become desensitized, but Xeomin® makes this less likely. Providers may recommend Xeomin® for people who no longer respond well to other neuromodulators. This nakedness also makes Xeomin® a smaller molecule, letting it spread out more evenly under the skin. 

Where is Xeomin® Used?

The FDA originally approved Xeomin® to treat glabellar lines, often known as the 11’s. These vertical lines between the brows can cause you to look serious or even angry. In Specialty Aesthetic Surgery, Xeomin® is often used to treat neuromuscular conditions of the eye like spasms and eyelid twitches. 

In general, neuromodulators work well for aesthetic purposes, but they also excel at managing conditions caused by muscle contractions or overactive nerves. Conditions that involve muscle spasms or rigidity may be treated with neuromodulators. Like the other neuromodulators, Xeomin® has an excellent safety record and FDA approval. 

What Results Will I See With Xeomin®?

Xeomin® results take longer to appear than other neuromodulators. The difference is only a few days, with Xeomin® results appearing around day four. You will see the targeted muscles move less, leaving the skin smoother and younger-looking. Xeomin® results last three to four months, comparable to other neuromodulators. Xeomin® may be more suitable than the other neuromodulators for long-term use since its lack of proteins keeps it from causing desensitization over time. 

Is There Downtime With Xeomin®?

Xeomin® injections take ten to fifteen minutes, and afterward, you can go back to your usual activities. You might have some sensitivity or redness at the injection sites, but this will fade within a day or two. Your injection specialist may advise you not to rub your face or give you other recommendations. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin®?

If you have glabellar lines between your brows, or if you have eyelid spasms or other neuromuscular issues, Xeomin® can help. Good candidates for Xeomin® are not allergic to any neuromodulators and have reasonable expectations. You may be a good candidate if you want to smooth away the 11s with the purest available neuromodulator. People with certain neuromuscular conditions should not have Xeomin® or other neuromodulators.
