Botox, Xeomin & Dysport

Differences Of Botox, Xeomin and Dysport.

Xeomin is a purified neurotoxin. It is referred to as a ‘naked’ molecule because there are no additive surface proteins, just the botulism toxin. This solitary agent migrates further and faster, to effectively work upon all facial areas upon injection. There is less risk of an allergic reaction or rejection for the client from the absence of protein additives. In comparison, Botox and Dysport are considered ‘heavier’ because they contain added proteins. These proteins are for protection and are clustered around the botulinum to enable them to last a little longer. However, the clinical argument is that these protective proteins may also shield the active part of the neurotoxin thereby minimizing product effectiveness.*


One of the noted benefits of Dysport is that it spreads a little more than Botox and it is commonly used by patients who have stopped responding to Botox. It is also injected at a different strength and affects a slightly larger area than Botox and Xeomin. It has been reported that Dysport typically takes two to three days until the effects of the treatment are seen. Botox takes seven to ten days while Xeomin and Botox takes five to six days.*

Dysport may be the best option in areas where several injections are needed because of its easy spreading to cover a greater area on the face. In the areas where the spread needs to be minimized, Xeomin and Botox may be the best option to concentrate on deeper wrinkling. Over time with different Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injections, clients begin to favor which treatment works best for them.*
