BOTOX vs. Xeomin vs. Dysport: Is there a difference? I get asked this question all the time and wanted to share what I know here to help select the best Botox treatment for erasing wrinkles and revealing younger-looking skin.
Since BOTOX came out almost 30 years ago, it has become synonymous with erasing wrinkles and the term most people use describing this popular treatment. There are now three different products on the market that are FDA-approved and contain the same core ingredient of botulinum toxin Type A: BOTOX from Allergen, Xeomin from Merz, and Dysport from Galderma.
When it comes to comparing these three products and recommending one as better than the other, I like to say that it’s like comparing Kleenex to Puffs. They are basically the same thing, just in different packages with different branding.
The Real Difference Between BOTOX, Xeomin, and Dysport
As I said, these are all three basically the same product made with the same core ingredient. The difference can be found in the slightly different way each company formulates their product and the accessory proteins they use. Which one you select depends on the type of treatment, the look you want to achieve, and the technique of application.
• All 3 products have nice holds, but they do set differently.
• All 3 produce results that last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on the technique used and each person’s unique body chemistry.
• All 3 can take between 1 to 2 weeks to set completely.
Here at Francesca’s Facelift in Las Vegas, I choose BOTOX, Xeomin or Dysport depending on the look I want to achieve for my patient or which will be the best option for them.
Also, I can’t emphasize this enough, the placement for injections makes all the difference in erasing wrinkles and achieving more youthful-looking skin. It also is key for natural-looking results that last a long time.
