Is Botox My Only Option for Wrinkles?

Botox in Phoenix, AZBotox is used around the world by millions of men and women to get rid of frown lines and stubborn wrinkles. But is it your own option?

In a word, no. However, there is much you should consider before and while undergoing Botox treatments. Let’s look at the different neurotoxins available to help you combat signs of aging, no matter what kind of treatments you’ve undergone.


Botox has been on the market the longest of any of the three neurotoxins we’re going to discuss. It is an FDA approved treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is a prescription medicine but does have powerful long-term results that other neurotoxins don’t have because of their limited time on the market.


Xeomin is used similarly to fight wrinkles and frown lines. It is a more purified protein which technically makes it a more natural product than the other neurotoxins on our list. It is also an FDA approved product. It works in the same way as Botox, by blocking chemicals that tell your facial muscles to contract in the areas you don’t want them to. There are side effects to consider, just like with Botox, but in reality, the likelihood of complications is slim. It is also a clinically proven treatment for wrinkles and fine lines.


Dysport takes effect immediately, which is different from Xeomin and Botox which typically take up to 7 to 10 days to come to their full effect. If you’re in need of a quick bit of help for your wrinkles, then Dysport is a good option for you.

How Neurotoxins Work

Each of these options is injected underneath the skin where it gets to work telling your muscles what not to do. Whether you choose a synthetic option like Botox or Dysport or if you prefer something more natural like Xeomin, the results are the same: wrinkle reduction. It is important that you rotate the neurotoxins you use as your body will become resistant to a single product if used consistently.

Let us help you decide on the right treatment option for your frown lines and wrinkles.

Farhan Taghizadeh, MD.

We pride ourselves on offering the latest cosmetic technologies and procedures. I am constantly in contact with some of the biggest aesthetic companies in the country to find out what new devices are coming out so that we can help you look your best. I have extensive cosmetic surgery training, and I have performed over 3,500 facelifts. My goal is to meet you where you are - whether you are noticing sun damage or are tired of looking 15 years older than you feel-together we can find a way to bring that spark back to your life!

I completed my ENT training at the University of Rochester in 2004. To further deepen my understanding of the face, I did a facial plastic surgery fellowship in Switzerland (where I also developed a love of chocolate!). These experiences gave me an in-depth understanding of head and neck structures, an understanding that I use and refine every day to help you achieve the outcome you seek.

"Whether you have a serious medical condition or are interested in rejuvenating your look, I look forward to getting to know you and making you feel great!"
