How to Pick Between Botox or Xeomin

Have you been curious about how to pick between Botox or Xeomin for your unwanted wrinkles?

You are not alone.

While Botox has long been the brand name for wrinkle reduction, Xeomin has been rumored to be an equally effective brand to accomplish the same goals.

So which is better for you? We explore more, below.

What Is Botox?

Botox is an injectable toxin that can target unwanted lines such as frown lines, forehead lines, smoker’s lines, and even crow’s feet.

What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin is the same type of toxin as Botox and treats all of the same dynamic facial wrinkles.

What’s the Difference?

The main difference between Botox and Xeomin is that Xeomin does not contain any of the accessory proteins that Botox has which are designed to preserve it.

These extra proteins can sometimes lead to patients becoming non-responsive to Botox over time.

The lack of proteins in Xeomin makes it a purer solution that many believe can bond to facial muscles faster to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


Because Xeomin contains no accessory proteins it does not need to be refrigerated which makes it easier to manufacture, market, and ship.

This allows for a lower price point for the patient.

How to Pick Between Botox or Xeomin?

When it comes to deciding whether Botox or Xeomin is right for you, you really can’t go wrong.

Botox products yield the same results and are administered in the same way.

Xeomin is generally priced lower when compared to Botox, which makes it an attractive option for patients looking for great results without wanting to pay the premium price for the Botox name.
