Which wrinkle relaxer is best for me?
Each product, whether Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, or Jeuveau, works slightly differently, so choosing the “best” product will be based upon what you are trying to achieve. For example, if you want a faster result, you may want to try Dysport or Jeuveau. If you have deep forehead lines, you may get a better result with Botox. Some people get better results with Xeomin, as they have built up a resistance to the proteins in the other products. When we work with you we will carefully evaluate your skin condition and determine the best way to smooth away those frown lines, brow creases, and crow’s feet.
What does it mean if my Botox injections aren’t working like they did before?
Some people develop antibodies to the proteins in Botox, which make it less effective. In these cases, switching to Xeomin, which is completely pure, without the added proteins, could resolve the issue.
Why would you choose Dysport as a wrinkle relaxer?
For a quick onset, you want a product that will diffuse more thoroughly on the forehead faster. The thinner formula of Dysport can often achieve a nicer, more even result for certain clients. Everyone is different, and we promise to guide you in the right direction, based upon your skin type and the number of wrinkles you want to smooth away.
