Botox 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.
