Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®: What’s the Difference?

Frustrated by fine lines and wrinkles, neckbands, or a gummy smile? Botox® may be the anti-wrinkle treatment most people are familiar with, but you have other options. Xeomin® and Dysport® work in the same basic way but have several of their own benefits. Your Rejuve Med Spa expert injectors will help you determine which may best meet your needs. 

*Individual Results May Vary

What are Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®?

All three of these products are injectable anti-aging treatments that relax muscles to smooth wrinkles and other facial concerns. They all use a compound called botulinum toxin that works by acting on the nerves that tell your facial muscles to contract. As a result, these muscles stop pulling on and creasing your skin. These products are often called neurotoxins, but a more accurate term is neuromodulators since they do not damage your nerves in any way. 

Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport®: What’s the Difference?

While Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport® can all help you look more refreshed and youthful, they have several differences that might make one preferable to the others for your goals. Differences include how long they last and what results you can expect. 

How Quickly Do They Work?

While all of these products take effect quickly, there are some differences. Dysport® results appear most quickly, with many people seeing results within 24 hours. Xeomin® results are usually visible within three to five days. Botox® results can become visible within three to seven days. All results can take a few weeks to develop fully.

How Long Do They Last?

Results vary, but neuromodulators will usually last three to five months for most people. Your expert injector can discuss what you should expect. While these products are similar in how long they last, Xeomin® is often used for people who have become resistant to the proteins used by Dysport® and Botox®. 

What Do They Treat?

While all neuromodulators work the same way, their properties make them useful for different tasks. Botox® is the most widely tested and has many medical uses as well as being used for the face and neck. Dysport® is FDA-approved to treat glabellar lines (vertical lines between the brows), where it spreads out more than Botox® to affect a broader area. Xeomin® is also approved to treat glabellar lines, one of the most common areas of concern. 

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®, Xeomin®, or Dysport®?

After receiving your injections, you can return to your usual activities with no downtime. You may experience some minor redness, bruising, or swelling in the injection area that can last a day or two. You should avoid rubbing your face for a few hours after treatment and limit strenuous exercise for the rest of the day. The lack of downtime makes these treatment options convenient for any schedule. 

The staff is absolutely amazing- very friendly and all very knowledgeable. The procedures are all very seamless, the explanations are thorough, and they ensure you are very comfortable before and during and even after. I have even brought my 14-year-old daughter.
