Botox Xeomin And Dysport – Which Is The Best For Preventing Wrinkles!

In the past, people that wish to prevent lines and wrinkle on their forehead or erase those that have developed on them use a particular neuromodulator known as Botox.

Lately, two similar neuromodulators appeared in the marketplace, having received US FDA approval. They are Dysport (2009) and Xeomin (2011). These two products operate by stunning the nerve endings and ensure that the muscles that surround the areas where a person is injected are frozen. Although these products perform similar functions, this post will highlight the benefits and usage of each of them in a bid to determine the best neuromodulator for wrinkle prevention.

Overview Of Dysport, Xeomin And Botox

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have active components in them. They all fall under the same classification of drugs. Besides, they all use Botulinum toxin, a neurotransmitter to stun the nerve cells that provide a specific facial muscles. Theresult is the paralysis of the facial muscles which become stagnant and hinder additional formation of wrinkles. These are the similarities that exist between these products.

The molecular structure that exists in these products isnot the same. This is the reason for differences in their performance when they are injected.

The three products have been scientifically tested and confirmed to possess the same strength; hence, the issue of superiority does not exist. They all have a duration limit that ranges between three to five months; although, this depends on the muscles’ size and strength around which they are injected.

In addition, it takes between two to five days for these products to display their optimum results, depending on how they perform when injected under the skin.

Botox

Botox is the non-surgical cosmetic treatment given to reduce the occurrence of wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet and on the sides of the eyes to enhance youthful appearance.

In 1999, Botox received a US FDA approval and has since dominated the marketplace as the only US FDA approved product in its category. Millions of customers use this product as a part of their beauty regime to look younger. It is widely known for removing wrinkles on the forehead. There are proteins in Botox. They cluster around the region where Botox is injected. This makes it last than other related product. Numerous customers have attested to the potency and effectiveness of Botox. This has boosted the confidence given to it by both administrators and users.

Dysport

There are similarities that exist between Dysport and Botox. First and foremost, both products contain added proteins. Besides, Dysport is lighter than Botox. The way it spreads is not also the same way as Botox because its diffusion is higher and its spread covers a larger area.

To determine which one to use among Xeomin, Dysport and Botox, cost is a major factor. The least expensive among them is Dysport however, additional units of it are required to produce the same result as Botox or Xeomin.

Dysport has a great benefit as it produces a more natural appearance in people that are injected with it. As a result, it is suitable for people who desire body changes that are difficult to notice.

Xeomin

Unlike Dysport and Botox, Xeomin is free from all forms of protein additives. Being the purest form of neuromodulator, this product has several upsides. An outstanding feature of Xeomin is that it requires no refrigeration storage; hence, can be stored at room temperature. For this reason, it is less expensive than Botox which gives the same outcome for the exact number of units used.

Besides, the occurrence of allergic reactions is rare in Xeomin and the absence of additives in it further reduces the reaction.

Some people develop antibodies to neuromodulators and this reduces their efficiency with time. The probability of developing antibodies to Xeomin is very low since it is free from protein additives.

In conclusion, your choice of neuromodulator: Botox, Xeomin or Dysport will be based on certain factors like the kind of result you seek and the extent of wrinkle you intend to eliminate.
