Xeomin & Dysport

When you look in the mirror, are you starting to notice fine lines across your forehead, between your brows, or at the corners of your eyes? If so, it may be time to consider a neuromodulator injectable. At First State MedSpa, we offer a selection of treatment options to meet your individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Xeomin® & Dysport®

There are a number of different injectable treatments available on the market today. One of the most common types of injectables includes neuromodulators such as Xeomin®, Dysport®, and Botox. These products all contain botulinum toxin type A, which works to smooth dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that form as a result of repeated facial movements.
So, what is the main difference between these injectable products? The main distinction lies in their formulation. This will influence how the product spreads, the dosage used, and how quickly results can be seen.

The most common neuromodulator treatment areas include:
• Glabellar lines also called frown lines
• Crow’s feet
• Forehead creases
• Corners of the mouth
• A “cobblestoned” appearance on the chin

You will be able to return to your regular activities directly after treatment. However, we do recommend that you avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for the rest of the day. Mild swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site are normal and should dissipate with time.
