BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can soften and reduce lines created during natural facial movements and can also erase aging marks, making you look younger and more refreshed as a result. Read more about Botox Cosmetic Treatments.
Xeomin® was recently approved by the FDA for use in the glabellar area. The new product contains the same chains of amino acids but without the complex proteins. Its purity makes it easier to conserve, while having the same therapeutic effects as Botox. Like Botox, it requires the same doses to achieve optimal results.
The number of injections necessary will vary from patient to patient, depending upon how many muscles are affected and the severity of the condition. The results of a Xeomin treatment are usually evident after one week and last, on average, up to 12 weeks.
Dysport is an FDA-approved treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. The active ingredient in Dysport is botulinum toxin type A . The inactive ingredient is human albumin and lactose. Dysport may contain cow’s milk protein.
Dysport was developed in Europe during the early 1990s, and has been used there successfully for several years. In April 2009, Dysport was approved by the FDA for use in the US, and is expected to rival Botox, the most popular cosmetic procedure, with its convenience and long-lasting results.
