The Differences Between Xeomin and Botox


Posted by Dr. Katarzyna Skura in Art Aesthetica on April 09, 2024

As you experience the side effects of aging, you can notice the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin folds.  Reducing the appearance of these lines and wrinkles can reverse years of side effects caused by unwanted repetitive facial movements. With its pure formulation, Xeomin is a clean injectable that can reverse years of aging. Read more to learn about Xeomin and its comparison to the original neuromodulator Botox.

Differences Between Xeomin and Botox

Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002 to treat wrinkles and fine lines. As the first FDA-approved modulator, Botox has paved the road for those to follow for the past 21 years. Xeomin is a more updated neuromodulator similar to Botox.

Although Xeomin and Botox both treat wrinkles and fine lines, many differences cause them to stand apart from one another. The Xeomin formulation uses a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, while Botox is composed of a complex mixture of unneeded proteins. Xeomin has been coined as the naked injectable for only including what is needed for lasting results.

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin is an injectable neuromodulator similar to Botox. These neuromodulator treatments temporarily reduce muscle movement by injecting botulinum toxin into the underlying muscle. This blocks specific nerve signals- halting muscle contraction. When the muscles relax, your unwanted wrinkles diminish.

Xeomin wrinkle and fine line treatments require no downtime, letting you return to your daily activities right after your appointment. Treatments typically take 15 minutes, with antiwrinkle results lasting between three and six months.

What is Xeomin used for?

 Xeomin is used for all the same areas that Botox is used for. Xeomin can treat moderate to severe lines, including frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and more by softening their appearance and completely vanishing them.


Xeomin is formulated using the unique XTRACT Technology™ Merz Xeomin manufacturing process. Xeomin is a smart toxin that uses a double-filtered formula to remove unnecessary proteins, ensuring that you get the purest form of the active ingredient.


Results from Xeomin can appear within a week after your procedure, and you can notice the full effects emerging after a month. Xeomin typically lasts three to six months. Repeat treatments can be scheduled every few months to maintain your desired treatment goals. Xeomin delivers predictable, customizable, and life-changing results.

Which Option Will Help You Achieve Your Aesthetic Goals?

Choosing the proper injection can be difficult. This can depend on the area of treatment and your lifestyle. Xeomin is an excellent option for those looking for a pure formula and wanting to treat their fine lines and wrinkles. For those wishing to minimize frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, Xeomin is a purer option for you.
