If you consider yourself to be a Botox addict or have been thinking about getting Botox injections to eliminate wrinkles on your forehead, you may be a good candidate for a Xeomin injections, a Botox alternative. Xeomin is scheduled for release in the United States in spring 2012 and will join the lineup of Botox competitors, including Botox.
Botox continues to be among the most-coveted types of minimally-invasive surgery in the United States and is especially popular among baby boomers who want to eliminate lines and wrinkles around their forehead. Deep furrows along the forehead can make you appear much older than your real age, and the only other option to get rid of them is with facelift surgery. Botox is an affordable alternative to surgery, and is also less painful. Just one injection every few months is all it takes to get rid of those lines and wrinkles, and achieve a more youthful look.
Xeomin is derived from botulinum toxin Type A and works in the same way as Botox . The toxin relaxes the muscles so that it’s impossible for you to frown or create creases and wrinkles on the skin. The treatment is performed within a few minutes, and you’ll walk away with smoother skin and a more youthful look. Xeomin was created by Merz Aesthetics and has now gained FDA approval for cosmetic use.
Unlike Botox, this formulation doesn’t require refrigeration prior to use, which means it could end up being a much less expensive and convenient option for many physicians and medical spas around the country – which translates to lower costs per injection for the consumer.
Physicians around the country have been waiting for Xeomin to come to the U.S market, just so that they have another option available for patients pursuing non-invasive wrinkle treatments. In recent years, demand for Dysport has increased as more patients are comfortable with straying away from Botox and trying something new. Xeomin may enjoy similar success and the treatment can be tailored to meet the patient’s needs.
