Xeomin vs. Botox: A Comprehensive Comparison

Discover the key differences and similarities between Xeomin and Botox at Dvida Spa, helping you make an informed decision for your anti-aging needs.

At Dvida Spa, we're frequently asked about the differences between Xeomin and Botox. Both are popular neurotoxin injectables used to smooth wrinkles, but subtle nuances set them apart. Understanding these can help you choose the right option for your anti-aging strategy.

What are Xeomin and Botox?

Xeomin and Botox are both injectable neuromodulators that temporarily relax facial muscles, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They're derived from botulinum toxin type A but are formulated differently.

Key Differences

Purity: Xeomin is often referred to as the 'naked injectable.' It contains only botulinum toxin A, without any protein additives. This purity means that clients are less likely to develop resistance (antibodies) that can reduce effectiveness over time.

Onset of Action: Some clients report that Xeomin takes effect slightly faster than Botox, though this can vary.

Spread: Xeomin might spread less than Botox, offering more precision in targeting specific areas.


Efficacy: Both Botox and Xeomin are highly effective in smoothing wrinkles, particularly around the forehead, eyes, and mouth.

Duration: The effects of both treatments typically last around 3 to 4 months, depending on the individual's metabolism, the area treated, and the dosage.

Usage: Both are used to treat dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement.

Considerations for Choosing

Allergies: Botox's additional proteins can, in rare cases, trigger allergies. Xeomin, being protein-free, may be a safer choice for those with sensitivities.

Treatment Areas: Botox might be preferable for broader areas due to its spread, while Xeomin’s precision is ideal for smaller areas.

Personal Experience: Some clients may respond better to one treatment over the other.

Both Xeomin and Botox offer viable paths to reducing visible signs of aging. The choice between them should be based on individual needs, goals, and skin types. At Dvida Spa, we provide a personalized approach to ensure the best results for each client. Contact us to explore your options for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
