Botox / Dysport / Xeomin

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New Jersey and the Tri-state Area

Botox® (technically known as “Botulinum toxin type A”) is an injection that is able to smooth wrinkles caused by facial movements such as smiling or frowning. It is the most popular of the class of neuromodulators along with Dysport and Xeomin, all of which are available at Palisade Plastic Surgery. These injectable treatments work by blocking the muscular nerve signals, which weaken the muscles so they can’t contract to form wrinkles in the overlying skin.  It is important to have a well informed sense of the anatomy and interplay of the facial muscles to render balanced youthful rejuvenation without distortions or asymmetries.

Treatments are a quick and pain-free process, with no downtime and anti-aging benefits lasting three to four months or even longer. 

Our surgeons pride themselves on providing a comprehensive facial analysis on every patient seeking surgical or non-surgical facial rejuvenation, with customized treatment plans attuned to a patient’s anatomy and goals. 

This may require incorporating ancillary procedures such as: 

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Laser Resurfacing 
  • Chemical Peels
  • Fat Grafting

What is the difference between Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?

1) Formulation: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have slightly different formulations of botulinum toxin type A. Botox contains onabotulinumtoxinA, Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxinA, and Xeomin contains incobotulinumtoxinA. These variations in formulation can result in differences in dosing and diffusion of the medication.

2) Protein Complex: Botox and Dysport are formulated with accessory proteins, while Xeomin is a “naked” form of botulinum toxin without any accessory proteins. This difference may affect how the body reacts to the medication and the potential for antibody formation.

3) Unit Conversion: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are measured and dosed differently. The unit conversion ratios between the three products are not equivalent, meaning the dosing for the same area of treatment may vary between them. It’s important to consult with a medical professional experienced with the specific product being used.

4) Onset and Duration: While the onset and duration of action can vary between individuals, some studies suggest that Dysport may have a slightly quicker onset of action compared to Botox, with results appearing within a few days. The duration of effect can also vary, but generally, all three products provide results lasting between 3 to 6 months.

5) Personal Preference: Some individuals may have personal preferences based on their experiences or the recommendations of their healthcare provider. The effectiveness and suitability of a particular product can vary depending on individual factors, desired outcomes, and the expertise of the injector.
