Botox, Xeomin, Dysport

As we get older, loss of bone, fat, collagen, and elastin in our face can lead to an aged appearance. You can combat this with neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin! Dr. Amy Kulak, MD, can help the people of Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville and Orange Park, Florida, but what are the differences between these three neuromodulators?

What Is Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport?

Neuromodulators are tiny proteins that block communications between nerve and muscle cells. By blocking communication, these neuromodulators prevent the targeted muscles in the face from moving. These muscles are used for both smiling and frowning, which contribute to smile lines and wrinkles.

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport each contain Botulinum toxin type A, which is typically dangerous to humans. However, before injection, the active ingredient is purified from the source. Since it’s no longer toxic to humans, these products work to reduce wrinkles and stave off the unwanted negative side-effects of aging!

What Is Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport?

Each of these three neuromodulators provides similar benefits but do have their differences. Here are some of the differences between the three?

  • Botox – The FDA approved Botox in 2002 for the treatment of forehead wrinkles, Crow’s feet, and other fine lines to the face
  • Dysport – Dysport and Botox work in a similar fashion. Where they differ is the dose size. Dysport’s larger dose size makes it a better option for larger surface areas like the forehead
  • Xeomin – Xeomin is relatively new, being approved by the FDA in 2011. Experts consider Xeomin as the purest injectable, making it a reliable option for those with skin sensitivities

What Is Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport?

Non-reconstructive surgery procedures are used to inject these products into the face. This procedure typically takes only 10 minutes to complete and requires no anesthesia. You will begin to notice the effects of these fillers within 2-3 days, and the results last anywhere between three and four months.

Some patients come back to repeat their treatment as soon as they notice the effects wearing off. Others wait six months before returning for more treatment. If you are looking for botox injections, you must seek professional assistance. Back-alley injection services can be dangerous

Dr. Kulak did a fabulous job. She repaired a very large gaping hole where my mother’s eyelid wise. Dr. Kulak was able to do so without using a skin graft, which greatly shortened the recovery time. Now, my mother’s eyelid looks virtually the same even though about 75% of it was removed. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Kulak’s professionalism, attention to detail, concern and care. Highly... recommend her more

Went to doctor kulak to have surgery on my eyes. Had a significant amount of baggy skin over my eye lids. After being referred to her by doctor Futch in Macclenny and a few visits finally decided to have it done and I am so thankful that I did. Doctor kulak is the best. You can’t even tell I have had surgery. Everyone in her office is supper sweet. Thank you to everyone in doctor kulak’s office... for making this experience an easy one 😊read more
