Use of incobotulinum toxin a (xeomin) for cosmetic facial rejuvination

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Botulinum toxin therapy is commonly used for cosmetic treatment of glabellar, forehead, lateral periocular, and other facial rhytids. Many providers have familiarity with onobotulinum toxin A (Botox®) and are accustomed to the dosing, diffusion, onset, and duration of action. Patients also commonly refer to all botulinum toxins as "Botulinum toxin" and are not familiar with other variations of the toxin. While some patients are loyal to Botulinum toxin either from past use, patient recommendation, or even media, many patients would like to try other similar medications including incobotulinum toxin A (Xeomin®) and abobotulinum toxin A (Dysport®); this chapter will focus on the former.
