Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin

Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin | Chicago | Jacob Bloom, MDBotox, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromodulators that cause temporary muscle tone loss when injected into specific areas. 

Consequently, neuromodulator injections can develop a cosmetically appealing effect by reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead as well as furrows between the eyebrows. 

Following the Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin injectable treatment, the superficial skin layer remains wrinkle-free and smooth. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal manner, which helps maintain regular facial expressions.

Injection Procedure and Results

It takes around ten minutes to inject the neuromodulator. The results last for three to four months. Neuromodulators are known to create a long-term reduction in forehead lines, crow’s feet, and furrows between the brows after the patient receive three to four treatments.  

The patient will not need any local anesthetic or sedation for this injectable treatment, and they can return to their normal activities right after their session. 

The neuromodulators become effective within two to five days following the treatment. But it may take up to two weeks for the complete outcomes to become obvious. 

Patients commonly experience bruising at the injection site, and this is normal. However, the side effects are minimally visible and temporary. Neuromodulators can effectively treat deep furrows between the brows, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

The injectable treatment is relatively painless, and the effects will become apparent in three to five days. The complete results of the treatment will be visible in nearly ten days after the injection. 

A treatment series lasts for nearly three months. Routine treatments can reduce fine lines for longer-lasting results over time. Some patients may experience redness at the injection site or mild headaches within 12 hours of undergoing the neuromodulator treatment. 


Botox Injections

Botox is a popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment available to patients today. It allows patients to accomplish a natural-looking and more youthful facial appearance. 

Botox paralyzes the underlying facial muscles in the treated sites to mitigate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, repetitive injection prevents the development of new wrinkles as well. 

The effects of Botox can last for between three to four months and only impact the treated area. This enables the injection provider to use it in a manner that creates natural-looking outcomes.

It takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete the treatment. A majority of patients feel little to no pain when receiving the injections. The results will become apparent after two days. But the complete outcomes will be noticeable in around ten days. 


Dysport Injections 

Both Dysport and Botox are similar in the manner in which they relax facial muscles and treat wrinkles. It can also create a more youthful eye appearance by lifting a sagging brow.

Dysport injections are also quick and painless, similar to Botox. Dysport and Botox have an almost identical formulation. However, it contains a lesser concentration of protein in comparison to Botox. 


Xeomin Injections

Xeomin is a neuromodulator as well, and it prevents the contraction of muscles. It has been approved for the cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe frown lines, lines between the brows, and other lines on the brow.
