What’s the difference between Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport?
The main difference between Xeomin and Botox or Dysport, is that Xeomin contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A. Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. Some patients have developed antibodies to Botox and Dysport.
Xeomin is the only one of the three injectables that does not need to be refrigerated before use, due to its lack of additives. The retail cost of Xeomin is roughly the same as for Botox per unit. Dysport is slightly less expensive per unit but patients average 20 units of Xeomin per visit, vs. 20 units of Botox and 40 units of Dysport.
The average retail cost to a patient in the US, for a Xeomin treatment, is between $300.00 – $400.00 every 3 months based on the recommended dose of 20 Units per treatment session.
