If you’re thinking about getting injections to improve the appearance of your face, BOTOX®, XEOMIN® and Dysport® are all popular products that you can choose from. These products share several similarities, but depending on what they’re used for, they can also be quite different from each other. Once you understand the differences, it will become much easier for you to decide what injectable is best for your needs. Of course, our team of professionals will make sure that you make an informed decision.

Understanding the Similarities

All of these products are similar in that they’re effective at altering nerve impulses within the muscles in your face. By blocking nerve impulses, these injectable products are good at reducing the appearance of certain types of wrinkles.

Although all of the products are similar in this way, each brand is created with a different formula. However, they all perform the same function. BOTOX®, XEOMIN® and Dysport® are regularly used to reduce the appearance of perpendicular frown lines and forehead lines, but they can be just as effective when used against nasal squint lines and crow’s feet.

Since all of these products are very similar, they produce very similar results. However, depending on the person, different products can produce different reactions and results.

The Differences Between BOTOX®, XEOMIN® and Dysport®

In many situations, Dysport® works particularly well for correcting the wrinkles that cause crow’s feet. However, for minor corrections to rogue wrinkles, BOTOX® might be the better option. It all depends on the unique situation. It’s quite common for physicians to use all three products interchangeably because each product is better for a specific purpose than the others.

Unlike the other products, XEOMIN® doesn’t contain added surface proteins. The XEOMIN® formula contains only the purified protein solution, and once injected, it can move faster and further than alternative products, which is why it’s popular for larger treatment areas.

Dysport® is different than the other products because it tends to spread out better across the treatment area, and it’s a popular choice for patients who no longer respond well to BOTOX®. Again, this all depends on the unique situation.
