What’s the difference between Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all injections of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. While they all produce similar results, there are some differences between the three treatments. One key difference between Dysport and Botox is that Dysport is a smaller molecule, which may result in a faster onset of action and a slightly different distribution of the product within the target muscles. Xeomin is a brand name for incobotulinumtoxinA, which is also similar to Botox and Dysport in terms of its use and effects. Xeomin is a “naked” botulinum toxin, meaning it does not contain any additional proteins that can interfere with the treatment. This may make Xeomin a good option for individuals who have developed a resistance to other botulinum toxin treatments.
