There comes a time in each of our lives when we realize that we could use a little help in the wrinkle department. No matter how diligent your skincare regimen may be, there’s no way to stave off aging skin forever. That’s where MedSpa services come in.
Probably the most recognizable name in non-invasive anti-aging procedures today is Botox, but it’s not the only game in town. There is a range of botulinum-based injectables that can help you regain a more youthful appearance, most notably Dysport and Xeomin. Your aesthetician can advise you on which one is best for you and your goals, but here is a brief overview to help you ask the right questions.
Botox and Dysport both contain added proteins in addition to the toxin, but Xeomin does not. Xeomin is referred to as a naked injectable, and the idea behind it is to keep your body from becoming resistant to it. The added proteins in Botox and Dysport are intended to make the effects of the toxin last longer. Which one you use is largely based upon your particular needs and goals.
As a MedSpa client, another consideration you may have is the length of time required for each of these products to take effect after injection. Dysport is the quickest one requiring about 24 hours. It also spreads a little more than Botox or Xeomin do, and is often used for clients who require several injections in one region or who have built up a tolerance to Botox. The onset of Botox usually requires about 72 hours, and Xeomin may need as much as four days to see visible results.
