Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all different brands of a similar protein that prevents or decreases the ability of a muscle to contract. While there are small nuances between them, great results can be achieved by them all.
Dr. Grossman has been a pioneer in the use of Baby Botox for over 20 years. Developed in response to the need of Hollywood’s elite to be able to move, and the fear of the everyday woman of that “frozen look”, Dr. Grossman’s unique light touch has earned her a loyal following of patients. When Allergan looked at the retention rate of their top Botox users, the average percentage of patients that returned to these elite doctors was 53%. Dr. Grossman’s retention rate was 97%.
While most think of these products to treat the “11s” between their brows, these products have a myriad of other uses on the face. Other common uses include softening the horizontal lines of the brows as well as giving the brows a slight lift, the “brow lift in a bottle”. We also regularly use to treat crows feet, the fine lines under the eyes, chin dimpling and lipstick lines around the mouth. In select patients, these products can also assist in improving nasolabial folds, the downward turn of corners of the mouth and re-shaping the jaw line.
In the neck, these neuromodulators help soften the vertical bands that form with time and the horizontal rings that form. Placement along the jawline also gives the lower face a “snugdown” known as a Neffertiti lift.
What are the differences between the current products:
Botox is the original protein used. It has a long track record and is the name most patients recognize. Dysport is similar, but has different proteins attached to the active molecules. Dysport takes more quickly and some feel lasts longer. Xeomin is the most “eco-friendly” product. It does not require refrigeration, eliminating the Styrofoam waste and is the cleanest brand. It has the least amount of extraneous proteins attached.
