Xeomin is toxic. And it doesn’t work well. You couldn’t pay me to use it. Why do doctors push something so toxic on the public?

Xeomin

 
Hi and thanks for posting your question here! Xeomin is an FDA-approved medication that belongs to the same family as Botox and Dysport, as they all share similar active ingredient – Botulinum Toxin Type A. However the way it has been purified and processed is different from other medications in the same family and actually it has less collateral proteins which might offer some benefits. It generally works as good as Botox in the head to head studies. Lots of people at my practice like it and get it on routine basis. What really matters is the technique and experience of the injector. I hope this helps and good luck!
