Botox Cosmetic, Dysport & Xeomin in Las Vegas
at Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are prescription (injectable) medicines primarily used to improve the look of face wrinkles and neck bands, by relaxing underlying muscles that cause face wrinkles and neck bands. We also use Botox, Dysport or Xeomin for face or jawline slimming (aka jaw or masseter muscle reduction for masseter hypertrophy); to reduce excess facial fullness in the lower / lateral cheeks, and thus, create a more attractive, thinner, oval or heart-shaped face.
Related uses include Botox, Dysport or Xeomin for teeth grinding (i.e. Bruxism ) and temporal mandibular syndrome ( TMJ Syndrome ). Relaxing the masseter muscle with Botox or Dysport may reduce night-time / sleep teeth grinding and / or discomfort associated with TMJ Syndrome.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are simple, nonsurgical treatments administered by our dermatologists, Robert Strimling, MD and Lionel Handler, MD of Strimling Dermatology, Laser & Vein Institute of Summerlin, Las Vegas.
Cosmetic improvement is temporary lasting between 3-6 months for most. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin may also prevent wrinkles if performed regularly.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are FDA approved for frown line improvement and Botox is also approved for lateral eyelid lines (or crow’s feet). 11.8 million Botox procedures have been administered in the US since 2002. 92% of 303 surveyed patients were satisfied with their Botox experience.
Dysport has been used in fifteen European countries since 1990 and Xeomin in 20 countries since 2010.
Botox is also FDA approved for the treatment of severe underarm sweating. Botox is also approved for severe and frequent migraine headaches. Likewise, improvement is temporary, lasting 6-12 months in our experience.
What are the differences between Botox, Dysport and Xeomin?
All three are slightly different versions of botulinum toxin type A; Botox (ONAbotulinum toxin A), Dysport (ABObotulinum toxin A) and Xeomin (INCObotulinum toxin A. All are medications called biologics. Biologics are complex organic molecules derived from living organisms that are inherently unique, complicated to replicate and sensitive to the manufacturing process, thus, accounting for subtle differences. (Conventional drugs are generally formulated from chemical compounds.) Both Botox and Dysport are stabilized with a protein envelope, while Xeomin is not. Therefore, Xeomin is a much smaller molecule and possibly, less likely to stimulate an antibody immune reaction. Antibody development may reduce duration and / or quality of response. In contrast, the smaller, naked Xeomin compound may be more quickly or easily degraded and not last as long. Individual responses vary. Also, each unit of Botox is equivalent to 2.5 to 3 units of Dysport; however, this is accounted for when using either product to achieve the desired effects. Whereas, Botox and Xeomin units are equivalent. That being said, the similarities between the products far exceed these subtle differences and all 3 products are relatively equivalent when injected by an experienced and knowledgable injector. Any notable difference in effect or duration might also be related to individual variation in response to one product vs. another.
Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are often used concomitantly with the Wrinkle Fillers, but also, can be used together with most other cosmetic procedures.
