Dysport vs Botox
Dysport works to maintain a natural look, whilst also reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, worry lines and forehead wrinkles. Similar to Botox, Dysport uses clostridium botulinum toxin by injection to temporarily paralyse the facial muscles responsible for wrinkle formation.
Most people are suitable for Dysport, however do come and chat to our friendly staff who will assess further the right treatment for you; if you have deep scars, thick or oily skin, then another treatment option may be better for you.
The advantage of Dysport is in its quick results. Compared to Botox, which can take around 3-5 days to show any sign of working, Dysport acts fast and you’ll see a reduction in wrinkles in as quick as 24 hours. Dysport is also much more long-lasting, and remains effective for up to 5 months.
XEOMIN vs Dysport and Botox
XEOMIN, Dysport and Botox are very similar products, but there are some significant differences.
Unlike its rivals (Botox, Dysport), XEOMIN is “naked,” meaning that it is pure and has no additives. This reduces the likelihood of the patient developing a resistance to XEOMIN.
When the human body senses a foreign agent, it creates antibodies in response and launches an attack on invader. This is why botulinum toxin type A sometimes stops working for some patients.
XEOMIN is diluted in the same proportion as Botox and it also takes from 3 to 7 days for the full effects of XEOMIN to take place, and the results last from three to 5 months depending on the patient.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a naturally occurring protein called onabotulinumtoxin A.
XEOMIN injections, like Botox injections, relax the muscles that commonly cause wrinkles between eyes (frown lines), smile lines (crow’s feet) and forehead lines (transverse worry lines). These wrinkles are the result of often use of the upper facial muscles (frowning, squinting, smiling, raising eyebrows, quizzical expressions). These frequent muscle movements lead to dynamic wrinkles and XEOMIN is a great choice for eliminating these wrinkles.
