Banish Crow’s Feet and Frown Lines Easily With a Neurotoxin Treatment

If crow’s feet, frown lines, and other signs of aging are making you frustrated about your appearance, you’re not alone. Many men and women turn to aesthetic treatments to banish those unwanted facial lines. 

One of the most popular forms of aesthetic treatments is injectable neuromodulators. These neurotoxins designed for aesthetic use offer a safe, effective, and nonpermanent anti-aging solution that helps you feel confident in your skin again.

At Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, our providers are experts at rejuvenating aging skin with injectables as part of our comprehensive line of aesthetic services

When it comes to injectables, it’s not one-size-fits-all. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you learn the differences between the top neuromodulators: Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®.

How injectable neuromodulators erase imperfections

Neuromodulators diminish or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines by using botulinum toxin. Injected in small amounts, the toxin quickly goes to work to relax the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles. 

The injection blocks the nerves that tell your muscles to contract, meaning they stay relaxed. This allows your skin to smooth out, getting rid of wrinkles and taking years off of your appearance. 

Here’s a quick look at the three most popular neuromodulators and how they help you reach your aesthetic goals.

All about Botox

Botox is a well-known name for anti-aging treatments, and it has a reputation for its reliability and amazing results. Botox was the first FDA-approved neuromodulator and therefore the original injectable. 

Many first-time users appreciate the extensive research that’s gone into Botox, as well as the consistency and predictability of its results. Some changes are evident 3-5 days after treatment, but full effects take about two weeks to show. 

All about Dysport

Dysport uses a concentrated formula of botulinum toxin to create a targeted focus on lines between your eyebrows. Plus, Dysport is known for quicker results. 

The concentrated formula gives you precise correction fast in the target area, and our patients report results 2-3 days after their treatment. Dysport is a great choice if you want quick, targeted improvements. 

All about Xeomin

Xeomin is very similar to Botox. In fact, it’s a “naked” form of the popular treatment, meaning it doesn’t have any of the additives or additional ingredients you’ll find in Botox. This makes it safer and easier to use for long-term injection treatments. 

There are some great benefits to using Xeomin over Botox. For example, if you’re allergic to the additives in Botox, Xeomin is free from them. Plus, building a tolerance to Xeomin is much less likely. Patients also note that their results appear more quickly and last longer with Xeomin compared to Botox. 

Selecting an injectable for your aesthetic goals

Though Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin belong to the same family of neuromodulators, they have slight differences, including:

Different brands of neurotoxin treatment also come with different costs. 

Your provider at Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery works with you to carefully review each treatment option and listen to your concerns. Choosing the right injectable for you involves considering your:
