For answers, Dermatology Times and Cosmetic Surgery Times developed an online survey for readers. The activity presented images from 6 patients who were photographed on the day of their injection and 30 days after treatment with either Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA, Merz Pharmaceuticals) or Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA, Allergan).

For answers, Dermatology Times and Cosmetic Surgery Times developed an online survey for readers. The activity presented images from 6 patients who were photographed on the day of their injection and 30 days after treatment with either Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA, Merz Pharmaceuticals) or Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA, Allergan).

Participants were asked to determine, if they could, which injectable toxin each patient received - and results showed that physicians were unable to accurately identify the toxin used.

This supplement details the pulse poll, the head-to-head trial, and the Xeomin pivotal trials.
