One of the first ways age starts showing on the face is through expression lines and dynamic wrinkles. These are the ones that show up when we make faces like squinting, frowning, smiling, etc. Over time, as collagen levels drop, these lines and wrinkles do not fade as quickly as they once did. That is why wrinkle relaxers have become so popular. Although BOTOX® is probably to most recognized name, it is actually only one of three options out there. Both Xeomin® and Dysport® have their own unique sets of pros and cons as well.
Xeomin® stands out the most from the three wrinkle relaxers because it is a single-ingredient injection. It is a purified protein serum used to temporarily relax muscles. Due to it not having any additives, it does not need to be refrigerated like the others. It is also considered to be more precise. One of the biggest advantages of Xeomin® is that the human body is less likely to develop a resistance to it because it lacks multiple ingredients.
Dysport® is more similar to BOTOX®. Of all three wrinkle relaxers, Dysport® tends to diffuse the most. This makes it ideal for treating spread out clusters of wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, in some cases.
When you think of wrinkle relaxers, you likely think of BOTOX®. BOTOX® provides a full complement of protective proteins. It is considered to be more precise than Dysport®, making it great to treat isolated wrinkles. Although the effects of Dysport® may appear slightly sooner, BOTOX® injections tend to last a bit longer. Of the three, BOTOX® is the most researched and widely used, something many people find appealing.
