Believe it or not there is a range of dermal filler products that as trained cosmetic nurses we inject into our patients on the daily. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are products derived from botulinum toxin, a muscle relaxant designed to prevent and reduce wrinkles and fine lines in the face. So what exactly is the difference between these and what are their benefits?
Botox is the most sought-after non-surgical treatment. It can last up to 4 months, so frequent visits by patients are very common. Not only does it minimise wrinkles it also helps reduce migraines, some eye disorders, sweating, combats an overactive bladder, and relieves joint pain like TMJ.
Dysport diffuses into the tissue more than other products due to the structure of the protein. You’ll begin to notice results within a few days and they typically last four months. Dysport is cheaper than Botox in units, but you will need 2.5 to 3 times more of it to get the same effect.
Xeomin is botulinum toxin A in its purest form. If you’re a long-term user of anti-wrinkle treatments your body may have begun to develop a resistance to the additives in the other products. With Xeomin, you’ll have better results that last longer. Xeomin disperses differently into the muscle tissue due to an absence of proteins.
