Currently, there are a variety of different kinds of botulinum toxin type A and B products that have different uses. Uses include, but are not limited to, eye problems, overactive bladder, migraines, muscle spasms, and cosmetic reasons. Botox is the most popular brand. However, there are other available brands, like Xeomin. Your doctor should choose the right product for you, as depending on the brand, medication is administered in different amounts.
Many people think that Xeomin is only used for diminishing wrinkles and lines, but it can do much more. It can also help treat issues like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), strabismus (crossed eyes), blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking), and cervical dystonia. Xeomin can treat overactive bladder for people who can’t tolerate the side effects of some medications or who won’t respond to them.
It is important that Xeomin is given by a skilled and experienced medical professional. When wrinkles, muscle spasms, and eye disorders are being treated, it is injected into the affected muscles. When it is used for the prevention of chronic migraines, it is injected into the neck and head muscles, and it is injected into the bladder when it is used for an overactive bladder.
The number of injections, injection site, how frequently you receive medication, and your dose are all determined by your response to therapy and the condition for which you are being treated. Most patients begin to notice results within a few days to a couple of weeks and the effects usually last from three to six months.
