Dysport™ & Xeomin
Dysport™ and Xeomin are commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Using a tiny needle, it is injected under the skin into the muscles that form wrinkles in the forehead, upper bridge of the nose, crow’s feet and neck bands. Excessive chin dimpling may also be improved with Dysport™ and Xeomin.
What does Dysport/Xeomin treat?
Made from a purified protein, Dysport™ and Xeomin block nerve impulses thus weakening muscles that form wrinkles and giving the face a rejuvenated look.
Dysport™ and Xeomin may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms.
When will I notice results?
Dysport™ and Xeomin start working 2-3 days after the injection, and the maximal effect occurs at about a week after the procedure. The effects last on average from three to four months, and in some instances even longer. The treatment then needs to be repeated for the continuing effect to take place.
During the procedure
Dysport™ and Xeomin treatments take about 10 minutes and is performed right in the office setting. The amount of the medication to be injected depends on the area(s) to be treated and the relative strength of the muscles. Men usually require a higher amount as compared to women.
Usually no anesthesia is required, although topical numbing cream may be used to reduce the discomfort.
