New Injectable: Xeomin

What's new in anti-aging injections? Xeomin. This is a Botulinum Toxin type A product, like Botox. It has been used to treat abnormal neck pain and eyelid spasms and is now approved by the FDA to treat frown lines. It works like Botox to relax muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. The differences between Botox and Xeomin are, Xeomin does not need to be refrigerated making it easier to distribute (hopefully making it a bit less expensive!) and it contains no additives which lessens the chance for developing antibodies to it. Antibodies would cause you to be resistant to it. It may take about 1 week after injection to see the full effects, lasts 3 to 6 months and costs $400 to $600. Xeomin is available this spring at doctor's offices.
