Dysport® and Xeomin® injections are two of the most requested treatments. They diminish signs of aging by resting the muscle to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and help prevent new ones from forming. Treatments are fast, effective, and virtually painless, with results that lasts up to four months.
All two products are highly purified proteins derived from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. When injected in tiny amounts, they temporarily relax the muscular contractions that can cause wrinkles to form on our skin. Dysport® and Xeomin® are most commonly used in the lines across the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. Injections are virtually painless, have no downtime, and take less than 15 minutes to perform.
Beyond treating wrinkles and fine lines in the upper face, Dysport® and Xeomin® injections may also be used to:
Once injected, Dysport® and Xeomin® gradually relax the underlying muscle activity that causes a line or wrinkle to form. They do this by preventing the muscle's nerve receptors from receiving the signal from your brain to contract. This process happens over a series of days, with results lasting three to four months on average.
Results from your Dysport® or Xeomin® treatment will gradually set in over a few days, with the full effect seen by two weeks. Some patients may experience a faster onset with Dysport®, but not always. Your Xeomin and Dysport® results typically last three to four months, although some patients experience even greater longevity up to six months. Just as the onset of Botox® and Dysport® is gradual, so is how the products wears off, gradually. If you choose to discontinue use of Xeomin® or Dysport®, your skin will simply return to the appearance it had before you started treatment.
Any adult concerned about smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and preventing future ones from forming is a great candidate for Xeomin® or Dysport®! Your provider will discuss specific medical conditions and situations that may contraindicate you for treatment.
Both Xeomin® and Dysport® are measured in units. The units needed will vary depending on the area treated and the strength of your muscles in that area. During your initial consultation, your provider will evaluate the muscle movement in your area of concern and provide you with an estimated number of units and cost for your treatment.
