The latest muscle relaxant approved by the FDA has reached doctor’s offices: XEOMIN® (Incobotulinum toxin A). Although XEOMIN® has been used in European face procedures for the past five years (on over 84,000 people), the FDA has only recently given it the green light for use in the United States.
Some of the benefits of XEOMIN® include:
- No need for refrigeration prior to reconstituting the product just before use
- No addition of additives, which may reduce occasional allergic reactions seen with these types of products
XEOMIN® shares many similarities with BOTOX® and Dysport®, the two most popular wrinkle reduction products on the market. Your results will be visible within 2-3 days after treatment, with the peak effect occurring around 7-10 days. You can expect your results to last for up to four months before additional treatments will be necessary.
I have used XEOMIN® on over 20 patients already and find it to be a reliable product, producing results similar to the other available products. I have used it to decrease wrinkle lines between the eyebrows, in the forehead, and around the corner of the eyes with great results. To date, no patients have noted any difference between XEOMIN® and the other available products on the market.
Hopefully the addition of a new muscle relaxer in the market will stimulate more competition between the suppliers – which will benefit patients seeking more affordable treatments.
