The Benefits of Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Other Neuromodulators

The Benefits of Botox, Dysport, Xeomin and Other Neuromodulators

For eons, people have searched for the legendary “fountain of youth.” In fact, that’s what Ponce De Leon was searching for when he steered his fleet to Florida. A few hundred years later, doctors would discover that the fountain is actually a syringe, and the youth-restoring waters are actually neuromodulators.

In recent years, the administration and efficacy of neuromodulators has advanced, and products like Dysport, Botox and Xeomin have gained popularity among people of all ages for their aesthetic benefits. 

So what’s so great about neuromodulators? A lot! Keep reading to learn what they are and how they work to restore and sustain a more youthful you.

How Do They Work? 

Neuromodulators work by altering the way our nerves talk with each other. Like a helpful mediator, these substances inform how your nerves respond to other messages they receive. Products like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin bind to receptors in targeted muscles and block the release of the activating substance called “acetylcholine.” By relaxing that muscle, they also relax wrinkles and tighten the skin

How Can They Help?

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin have a number of benefits across a variety of areas. Botox and other neuromodulators can be used to treat TMJ and even Hyperhidrosis, a condition causing excessive sweating. 

Perhaps most popular, though, is the ability for neuromodulators to impact our appearance. They can be used to relax wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet and improve facial contour. They can also help treat sagging or crepey skin, shrink pores and reduce redness. Used alone or in combination with other treatments, neuromodulators help us see a more familiar, youthful face in the mirror. 

Which Should You Use?

Debating Dysport vs. Botox vs. Xeomin? While neuromodulators all work in similar ways, different options work better for different people depending on their wants and needs. 

  • Dysport has a larger molecule than others. It boasts the quickest, strongest results. Dysport is recommended for those with high metabolisms and those who want a stronger, more “frozen” look. 
  • Botox is perhaps the most famous neuromodulator, and is FDA-approved for the widest variety of treatments. Botox is recommended for targeted treatments of lines and wrinkles. 
  • Xeomin is considered by some to be the most “pure” neuromodulator, because it doesn’t have an added protein found in others. This helps prevent resistance over time. Xeomin is recommended for people with autoimmune issues, allergies and other sensitivities and for those who want a more subtle result. 

The results of neuromodulators wear off after 3-4 months, and we recommend alternating between products to maximize results.

Consider MicroTox for Targeted Treatments

MicroTox combines the benefits of Botox with the science of microneedling. Using ultra-thin needles, the neuromodulator can be delivered directly into specific areas in a virtually painless process. MicroTox can shrink pores in the nose, chin and cheeks, reduce red tones in the skin, and tighten skin in the neck to improve crepiness.
