Botox®, Xeomin®, & Dysport® At a Glance
Botox® in Northern Virginia is an excellent way to erase lines and wrinkles when applied to the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. It works by relaxing the muscles allowing the overlying skin to smoothen, thus diminishing wrinkles.
This quick, no downtime procedure is safe, reliable, and predictable, making it one of the most widely performed cosmetic procedures. Other areas in which Botox® can be used include around the mouth for smoker’s lines, and on the neck for certain wrinkles.
Xeomin® is the latest neurotoxin to be approved for cosmetic use. It is very similar to Botox®, except that it does not have some extra protein along with the toxin. This lack of protein may lead to less resistance for its users.
Dysport® is another relatively recently approved competitor to Botox®. Both Xeomin® and Dysport® have been available in Europe for years, and enjoy a similar safety and efficacy profile as Botox® in Mclean, VA.
Each of these products are offered at the Cosmetic Dermatology Center.

More About Botox®, Xeomin®, & Dysport®
These products are widely recognized for their ability to reduce facial lines and creases and help patients combat the signs of aging.
While some injectors and patients have a personal preference for one brand over another, they are all safe and effective with some variation in their onset.
So, which of these neurotoxins is right for you? Here’s what you need to know about Dysport, Xeomin and Botox in Northern Virginia.
What Are They and How Do They Work?
Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin Aesthetic are brand names for botulinum toxin and considered neuromodulators.
All three are used as cosmetic injectables to block nerve signals and prevent muscle contraction.
Once facial muscles are temporarily deactivated, they limit the expressions that are responsible for the development and deepening of wrinkles.
Therefore, many patients seek these treatments to improve existing lines and prevent future creases from forming.
What Aesthetic Concerns Can These Neurotoxins Treat?
These neurotoxins are FDA-approved to diminish forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
In the hands of a skilled and experienced injector like Dr. Hayre, they can also be used off-label to treat neck bands, chin dimpling, wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, and a gummy smile.
How Quickly Do They Begin to Work?
This is where Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin slightly differ.
Most aesthetic experts believe that Dysport works the fastest, followed by Botox, and then Xeomin.
Patients often note the effects of Dysport within 2-3 days, the effects of Botox in 2-7 days, and the effects of Xeomin in 3-4 days.
How Long Do Results Last for Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?
Dysport and Botox in Northern Virginia last up to 4 months, while the effects Xeomin are typically present for about 3 months.
However, product duration can vary from patient to patient, depending on the amount injected, strength of facial muscles, and rate at which the substance is metabolized by the body.
