XEOMIN is a botulinum toxin that has been used internationally since 2005 and was introduced to the US market in 2010 by Merz Pharmaceuticals, LLC. The FDA recently approved Xeomin for the treatment of severe frown lines.
Xeomin is similar to other treatments such as Botox, but has it's own advantages, beginning with the fact that it contains no additives, just botulinum toxin type A. This may mean that there is less risk of developing antibodies against Xeomin than other available neurotoxins. The body develops antibodies in response to a foreign invader and attacks. In theory, antibodies could prevent a neurotoxin from having its desired effects.
The full effects of Xeomin occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox in terms of both onset and duration of action. Xeomin prices are also quite competitive to existing botulinum toxin therapies.
