Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles on your face. It relaxes facial muscles, leading to reduced wrinkles and smoother skin. Wrinkle reduction on the forehead is one of the most pleasing aspects of Botox therapy for many people.
One of the benefits of Botox for reducing wrinkles and fine lines is that it is a non-surgical method. You will have no incisions to heal, stitches, scarring, or skin discoloration. This makes Botox injections an ideal treatment for those who want the benefits of plastic surgery without the hassle and complications that come with it. A brief injection is far preferable to many people than going under the knife.
Botox has become like Coke and Kleenex in that it is a brand that has become synonymous with a certain type of product. But did you know that a similar product called Dysport was approved several years after Botox for the same use?
Dysport is created using the same active ingredient as Botox and works to restrict muscle activity that generates creasing and frown lines. It is also administered via injection like Botox.
The side effects of Dysport are generally minimal and temporary in nature. They are throat and nose irritation, eyelid swelling, nausea, skin irritation, and inflammation.
In addition to going to work on the skin more quickly than Botox, there is some evidence that Dysport may be better at improving the appearance of crow’s feet — the wrinkles that appear around the eyes when you smile or squint.
Xeomin is approved by the FDA for treating adults with moderate to severe frown lines between eyebrows. It works by restricting nerve activity in muscles near the area of the eyebrow lines.
Xeomin is better able to be transported because it does not require refrigeration before use. It contains no additives, meaning there is less of a chance of the patient developing an immune system reaction. Xeomin’s effects are felt within one week and last up to six months.
