Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® are neurotoxins that are injected into the muscle to temporarily weaken that muscle.
These are muscles that form wrinkles when we raise our brows, frown, wrinkle our eyes. Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® are Botolinum Toxins manufactured by different companies. Some studies show that Dysport® may last a little bit longer, and it works more effectively around crow's feet and around the eyes.
Botox® was approved by the FDA in 2002; Dysport® was approved in 2009. Both have undergone extensive clinical testing and have been in use since the late 1980s.
How long do Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® last?
Most clients see improvement of wrinkles within 1 to 3 days of injection with Dysport® and within 3 to 5 days with Botox®. The results will usually last about 3 to 4 months. With repeated injections, a duration of 5 to 6 months is possible in some clients.
Am I going to look like a robot?
Most of us want to look better, but not too different. It is possible to achieve a frozen look with Botox® or Dysport®, however we usually prefer relaxing the wrinkles without making you look like "plastic."
How long does it last?
The toxins show the best effects when done three or four times a year. Clients who are getting toxins for a while see the effects lasting longer and need only two or three injections a year.
Dysport is great if you have a wedding or an ‘emergency’ party to go to. For someone who wants a fast fix.
What are the areas?
The three most common areas for neurotoxin injections are between the eyebrows, the forehead and next to the eyes, where "crow's feet" form.
