Unlike Botox, Xeomin does not have a preservative protein. Once Botox is injected, the botulinum molecule beginning freeing itself from the preservative protein before its free to bond with the muscles. Once bonded the muscle begins to relax then causing the wrinkle to fade away. Xeomin does not have preservative protein making it immediately available to the muscle receptors, binding immediately with reducing wrinkles at a steady and fast pace.
