Is Botox or Xeomin Best for Your Next Treatment

You are in the market for a cosmetic facial treatment that doesn’t involve surgery. You want your skin to look younger and smoother, and for your lines and wrinkles to vanish. You have heard there are various ways to achieve these results, but how do you know which the best treatment is?

The AgeLess Center in Atlanta is a leading studio for cosmetic enhancement in Georgia. We offer a range of non-surgical procedures including Botox and Xeomin, both of which will minimize wrinkles and lines, and have you feeling and looking refreshed and more youthful in a short period of time.

So let’s compare the two treatments.

Comparison Between Our Atlanta Botox and Xeomin Treatments

  1. Botox and Xeomin are both approved by the FDA as non-surgical cosmetic processes that will reduce or at very least minimize typical lines and wrinkles associated with age.
  2. A neurotoxin (specifically Botulinum toxin (BTX) A) is the active ingredient in both treatments. It affects the facial muscles by restricting the movement that typically causes facial lines and wrinkles.
  3. Xeomin is manufactured by Merz; Botox is manufactured by Allergan.
  4. Both treatments are regarded as temporary and will last for three to nine months before another treatment is needed to prolong the effect.
  5. Xeomin is an excellent option for minimizing wrinkles on the forehead and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. The skin is obviously smoother to the feel and looks younger. Botox does the same thing and is regarded as the first non-surgical facelift.
  6. Botox treatments take only about 15 minutes. Xeomin treatments can be even quicker.
  7. Botox has been used for about a decade longer than Xeomin.
  8. Both treatments have other medicinal uses. Botox was originally developed to counter severe shoulder, neck, and eyelid spasms, crossed-eyes, as well as severe headaches and migraines. Xeomin is also good for eyelid spasm as well as dystonia that results in neck pain.
  9. Both treatments are very reasonably priced though Xeomin is slightly cheaper than Botox: $7 per unit versus $9 per unit. This should not be the deciding factor.
  10. Neither treatment has a recovery time.

Ultimately, the Botox and Xeomin treatments offered at The AgeLess Center are both quick and simple. If you still aren’t sure which one will suit you best, give us a call to schedule an appointment with our specialist at 404.233.5255.
