According to statistics provided by the American Society of Physicians (ASPS), more than seven million BOTOX and botulinum toxin type A treatments were performed in the U.S. in a recent year. However, recent research, such as a study published in the Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology journal, has shown that some patients become immune to BOTOX with repeated treatments. Xeomin is an alternative treatment to BOTOX, approved by the FDA.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication produced by Merz Aesthetics and approved by the FDA for treating moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Like BOTOX, the active ingredient in Xeomin is botulinum toxin type A. It works by acting on the nerve endings to prevent muscle fibers from contracting and reduces the lines and wrinkles muscles contractions cause.
