San Francisco Xeomin cosmetic facial filler injection treatment reduces forehead deep wrinkles, frown lines & crows feet. Xeomin cost and locate Xeomin near me.
Dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead and frown lines occur when we make common facial expressions such as smiling, laughing and frowning. When we’re young, the lines aren’t visible when our face is at rest. With age, however, lines can get etched in and gradually deepen into static wrinkles if nothing is done to minimize our facial muscle contraction. Fortunately it was discovered that drugs such as neuromodulators can temporarily block muscle activity and relax dynamic lines and wrinkles. There are currently three brands of neuromodulators being used for this purpose: BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport and Xeomin®.
Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) claims to be different than BOTOX treatment and Dysport procedure because it contains no additives, just botulinum toxin type A. In theory, this means a lower risk of developing antibodies to Xeomin®, which could potentially cause the modulator to stop working. In practice, the incidence of patients developing antibodies to BOTOX or Dysport injections is incredibly rare and can be prevented with prudent use of these products.
The biggest concern with Xeomin® is that many doctors find that a higher dose is required to produce the same effects as BOTOX®, even though the manufacturer Merz claims the dosing ratio is exactly the same. Furthermore, many clinics discontinued Xeomin® after a short trial because it simply doesn’t last as long as BOTOX® or Dysport. Merz offered an explanation for this, stating that Xeomin needs to be reconstituted more carefully than Botox otherwise 30 to 40 percent of the product can remain in the vial. This may be true but why take a risk with Xeomin when such a high margin of error doesn’t seem to exist with Botox and Dysport?
Botox is the most popular neuromodulator on the market because it performs consistently and reliably. It has been studied extensively over the years and is FDA-cleared for the most number of indications. Dysport offers excellent longevity and performance as well. Its highly purified proteins are slightly different than BOTOX® which means Dysport is accepted very well by most patients, even in extremely rare cases when BOTOX® treatments cannot be tolerated. The majority of our patients and physicians find that they like the results of BOTOX® and Dysport the most and for this reason we have chosen to work with only these two products at Azala.
