Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are three similar cosmetic products that are easy to confuse. But, what differentiates the three? What exactly do they have in common? And, what does this mean for you?
Xeomin is manufactured by Merz Aesthetics. Dysport is produced by Galderma. Botox is the property of Allergan Co.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are derived from botulinum toxin. The toxin is a protein that blocks neurotransmission, thus, causing flaccid paralysis.
Compared to its competitors, Xeomin is purer and doesn’t have any additives. Thus, it’s less likely to cause adverse effects, and the body is less likely to become resistant to it.
While Dysport, by design, is primarily for medical procedures. The official Dysport website references spasticity and dystonia. Additionally, Dysport has aesthetic uses. But, its formula includes additives to dilute the product.
Lastly, the oldest of the three is Botox. The range of therapies and procedures for this product is quite vast, including spasticity, migraines, overactive bladder, spasms, dystonia, strabismus, hyperhidrosis, wrinkles, fine lines, and muscle stiffness. For a full list of side effects and uses of Botox, visit their official website.
