What are Dysport® and Xeomin®?

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows form facial lines. Other factors that can cause facial lines to include the following:

  • Damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment
  • Cellular changes due to aging
  • Reduced collagen

Dysport® is a natural-looking, fast-acting, and long-lasting injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. You’ll have a fresher, more youthful appearance without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.

Xeomin® is a “smart toxin” injectable with a double-filtered formula. Because it doesn’t include unnecessary proteins, you get only what’s needed for smoother frown lines, producing the most natural-looking results possible.

Dysport® and Xeomin® are neuromodulators that work by inhibiting nerve transmission. A messenger is released from a neuron that affects the transmission of signals between neurons. When injected into the targeted area beneath the skin’s surface, it binds to the muscle receptors and signals to block the release of acetylcholine. Because acetylcholine activates muscles, blocking it temporarily reduces muscle activity and improves the appearance of wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions.

How are Dysport® and Xeomin® Different from BOTOX®?

BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® temporarily improve wrinkles' appearance. All three relax the muscles that cause creases, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

BOTOX® is typically used for moderate to severe wrinkles. It was the first FDA-approved treatment of frown lines and forehead lines for up to six months.

Dysport® is similar to BOTOX® but is said to diffuse more quickly, making it a better choice for treating large areas or people with sensitive skin. Dysport® results generally last up to four months. 

Xeomin® is considered a “naked injectable,” meaning it does not contain additives. A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. While some patients have developed antibodies to BOTOX® and Dysport®, this has not been reported with Xeomin®.

What Should I Expect During Dysport® And Xeomin® Treatment?

Dysport® and Xeomin® procedures are quick and relatively painless and can be performed at our aesthetic center. During the appointment, your highly-trained injector will determine the best dosage for the injection site. The neuromodulator of your choice is then injected into precisely targeted areas. You may feel a slight prick as the needle enters the skin, but any pain or discomfort is minimal, and you can use a cold compress immediately after the procedure to reduce this. Each session takes approximately ten to twenty minutes, making Dysport® and Xeomin® excellent options for lunchtime anti-aging.
