What is the difference between Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin?
The composition of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin is very similar, as they are derived from bacterium Clostridium Botulinum or botulinum toxin type A. The key difference between these brands is the potency of the active proteins. Some people respond better to different products. Our team of professionals can help you determine which product is best for you based on treatment history and desired outcomes.
How many injections will I need?
This will depend on your skin and your goals. The recommended dose can differ, but in general, an average treatment consists of between 25-75 units total.
How long does it take to see results with Botox?
Results happen gradually, and the toxin effects will begin to appear in the days following treatment. It can take up to two weeks to see your final results.
How long does Botox last?
Botox usually lasts about three to four months. The results of your first treatment may not last as long as subsequent treatments.
Does Botox have side effects?
Common side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling or tenderness around the injection site, along with dry mouth and headaches. These usually resolve on their own in the days following treatment. Rarely, allergic reactions can occur. Seek medical attention and tell your doctor if you experience difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, itchiness, hives or other signs of an allergic reaction.
In very rare cases, serious symptoms can occur. In clinical trials, health care professionals found that a confirmed serious case of detrimental side effects occurred just 36 times out of 400 participants. Seek medical help if you experience general muscle weakness, drooping eyelids, decreased eyesight, double vision, blurred vision, loss of bladder control, neck pain or shortness of breath. These symptoms could be signs of life-threatening complications.
At what age should you start getting Botox?
Botox prevents wrinkles from forming at their earliest stages, so many patients choose to start Botox treatments when they first notice wrinkles at around age 30 or 40. However, Botox is approved for patients aged 18 and up, so you can begin treatment whenever you feel your skin can benefit from it.
