Definition - What does Xeomin mean?

Xeomin is a type of botulinum toxin that is used to stop muscle movement in areas that may be prone to wrinkling. Xeomin only works to reduce movement that could potentially create wrinkles and cannot treat deep wrinkles that have already formed. The same ingredients of Xeomin can be found in Botox and Dysport, though Xeomin is reported to be a purer form of toxin.

TheConsultation explains Xeomin

Xeomin has fewer proteins than Botox or Dysport. Essentially, there is another step of purification in Xeomin, so there are no complexed proteins or additives. It consists of only botulinum toxin type. This means that individuals are less likely to build up antibodies which sometimes can be seen in patients who elect Botox treatments. Candidates for Xeomin treatment are generally those who aren't seeing the same results from Botox or Dysport treatments. Xeomin is also the only botulinum toxin that doesn't require refrigeration which means for easier distribution and storage.
