BOTOX® vs XEOMIN vs DYSPORT

Botox, Xeomin and Dysport carry botulinum toxin, but have slight differences that make each treatment unique and more or less suitable for each person.

  • Botox works well for lip lines, crow’s feet, masseter, and other fine wrinkles. It has a high concentration and is slow-moving, perfect for small areas.
  • Dysport works better for larger surface areas like the forehead, since it’s fast-acting and spreads more evenly.
  • Xeomin is very similar to Botox, but it has a different type of botulinum toxin with no accessory protein, which helps avoid body resistance to the treatment.
