Diving into Neuromodulators: A Definitive Guide to BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomi

The three main neruotoxins you may encounter are BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®. They all work similarly by temporarily blocking the nerves in facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

Do All Neuromodulators Work Similarly?

While BOTOX (Allergan), Dysport (Galderma), and XEOMIN (Merz) all contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin, each brand has a slightly different formulation. Typically, these three are used by practitioners to target fine lines and wrinkles on the brow, forehead, crow’s feet, bunny lines, frown lines, and nasal squint lines.

BOTOX Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A)

Dysport (Abobotulinum Toxin Type A)

XEOMIN (Incobotulinum Toxin Type A)

Why choose one Neuromodulator over the other?

Benefits of Botox: BOTOX is widely recognized as the first neuromodulator introduced. While its fame doesn’t guarantee superior wrinkle treatment, its longer existence has led to more research and clinical data.

Benefits of Dysport: Dysport works twice as fast as BOTOX and XEOMIN. Its tinier molecules spread quickly and cover more area, making it great for even distribution on the forehead and crow’s feet.

Benefits of Xeomin: XEOMIN stands out for its pure formulation, containing just one ingredient and devoid of additives or preservatives. This absence of potentially reactive components makes it a potential alternative neuromodulator if you’ve had challenges with tolerating BOTOX or Dysport in the past.
