How Is Botox® Different From Dysport® and Xeomin®?
Botox® differs from Dysport® and Xeomin® in several small but important ways. All three contain the same ingredient, botulinum toxin. However, Xeomin® uses a pure, isolated version of the toxin, while Dysport® and Botox® use a version that also contains other proteins that do not affect treatment. All three are very safe and effective, but one may work better for an individual than the others, depending on their response.
Only Botox® has FDA approval to treat crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and forehead lines. Dysport® contains a more flexible formula approved for use on glabellar lines. All three use the same botulinum toxin and have the same effect on nerves and muscles.
What Results Will I See From Botox®?
You will see results from Botox® in about three or eight days, although full results can take two weeks.. Once fully developed, you can expect your results to last about three to four months.
You will see wrinkles begin to smooth out within a few days of your injections, leaving the treated areas looking relaxed and softened. The neurotoxin in Botox® has no permanent effects on muscles or nerves, so when the treatment wears off, all systems return to normal.
