If you are looking a bit grumpy and tired with frown lines, prominent crow’s feet and lip pucker lines, Botox Cosmetic, Dysport or Xeomin treatments are an easy way to enhance your appearance. These treatments are the most popular and safe cosmetic treatment in the world and can give you a relaxed and rested appearance within a matter of days by erasing unwanted lines and facial wrinkles.
Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatments are simple and almost painless, performed with very small injections into facial muscles that cause them to relax and wrinkles to fade. The injections are very precise and affect only a few muscles of the face. The result is a relaxed, less-wrinkled appearance to the skin.
What is the difference between Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?
All three products are variations of botulinum toxin, a medication used to relax the muscles, but all are made by different reputable pharmaceutical companies. Having options means better pricing and a product that works just right for you.
All three of these products are considered extremely safe as a cosmetic treatment to enhance one’s appearance and visible results will be noticed in only a few days. Your doctor may recommend one or another of these products for you based on your situation and needs and the individual characteristics of each product and it's predicted response. (For optimum improvement treatments are recommended three to four times a year.)
Results can be further enhanced with the addition of soft tissue fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse and Sculptra. IPL Light and Laser PhotoFacials skin treatments, Laser resurfacing, eyelid surgery, chemical peels, and laser or Fotona skin tightening can be used together with Botox or Dysport to achieve the optimum result.
Successful injection of Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin or Dysport requires skill, experience and judgment to perform the treatment safely and effectively. Gateway Aesthetic Institute has years of experience with both.
