How Does Dysport Differ From Botox And Xeomin?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), and Xeomin® are all brand names of the neuromodulator Botulinum Type A. You can think of them as different takes on the same product, like Coke and Pepsi. They are more alike than they are different. Though they all work to relax muscles that cause facial wrinkling, there are subtle differences in compound composition, injection techniques, dosage strengths, and storage requirements. Dr. Cox will recommend the best treatment for your specific needs.
Botox was the first product approved for cosmetic use. It is a brand name that we often think of as a generic product name, (like Band-Aid or Kleenex). It remains the most popular product and is often considered the gold standard. Dysport came next, and has a slightly wider field effect than Botox or Xeomin.
Prep Your Skin for your Dysport® Treatment
In preparation for your injectable treatment, we recommend avoiding topical products such as retinol, Retin-A, retinoids, and glycolic acid for at least two days before your procedure. Avoid drinking alcohol 48-72 hours before your procedure – save the happy hour for another night rather than the night before your injectable treatment.
After Your Appointment
When it comes to aftercare, you’ll need to stay away from some of the same things you avoided before treatment, as well as anything that can irritate your skin or affect the placement of the neuromodulator in the muscle. Follow these tips to help ensure optimal results and avoid any complications. We want you looking and feeling your very best as soon as possible after your treatment!
For the first few hours after your treatment: Don’t lie down and don’t wear a hat. Don’t rub or put any pressure on your treatment area.
Over the next few days: Leave your treatment area alone. Avoid any physical pressure, laying down on your face, or rubbing on the area of injection for a few days.
Wait 24 hours to work out or exert yourself after your treatment. By raising your blood pressure, exercise can both increase your risk for bruising or swelling and increase the chances of the product spreading rather than remaining in the area your injector intended the product to stay. Avoid excessive heat and UV exposure. Sun exposure can prolong redness or swelling after injections, so protect your skin with sunscreen and good sun protection practices. You will also want to avoid saunas, hot yoga, steam rooms, or other activities that involve lots of heat.
Don’t drink alcohol for 24 hours after injections as it can increase the risk of bruising.
Continue to avoid blood thinners for 24 hours after your treatment. (Tylenol is OK).
Wait two days to re-introduce retinol into your skincare routine.
At Aspire Weight Loss & Wellness, we believe that education is key. Not only before treatment, but after as well. We want your injectables to look great and last as long as possible, so we offer you the opportunity to schedule a follow-up consultation with your injector. Your injector will examine your results and help provide any further tips or advice on how to achieve optimal results for your next treatment.
