Botox is the most well known neuromodulator for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles, but there are also two other effective options to choose from – Dysport and Xeomin. Each of these neuromodulators provide amazing results, smoothing and softening wrinkles to achieve a younger appearance. So, what’s the difference? At Taban MD, we offer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin to accurately customize each patient’s treatment for his or her specific needs and cosmetic goals.
How Do Neuromodulators Work?
The neuromodulators Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin all use the substance botulinum toxin type A to temporarily block nerve signals that are sent to the facial muscles that help create expressions, and therefore, wrinkles. Each of these treatments are ideal for dynamic wrinkles or expression lines, which includes forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
What’s the Difference?
The formulations of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are slightly different, making them better suited for different outcomes.
Botox and Xeomin are the most similar formulations in terms of units needed to achieve the desired result. Botox is the most famous brand of botulinum toxin. Dysport is a slightly lighter formulation, allowing it to diffuse further and treat larger areas. Xeomin is the lightest formula because it does not have any proteins, which allows it to move and migrate faster, making it ideal for treating even larger areas than Dysport.
The subtle differences between each of these injectable neuromodulators can be used to achieve flawless results in the hands of an experienced and skilled injector.
