A double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jarmuz exceeds expectations for patient care & results.
BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN are best known for softening wrinkles around the eyes and brow, including crow's feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead wrinkles. However, these products actually are good options for treating several areas around the face, as shown below.
Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm can treat multiple areas in a single session that's customized to your precise goals.
What's the Difference Between BOTOX, Dysport & XEOMIN?
Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm help determine during your consultation whether BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, or XEOMIN is the best option for your specific needs. The products are very similar. BOTOX is probably the most well-known cosmetic product in the world, and its popularity stems from how effectively it can diminish dynamic wrinkles. Dysport and XEOMIN, though less well known, are equally effective. Dynamic wrinkles are those, such as the vertical "worry lines" between the eyebrows and crow's feet at the corners of the eyes, caused by the repeated movement of facial muscles as our expressions change.
The products are formulated using botulinum toxin type A, which relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles by preventing nerves from sending signals to the muscles. All 3 products are safe and can be used in different areas of the face. The primary differences between the products are:
- Results following Dysport and XEOMIN treatments typically appear about a day or 2 earlier than for patients treated with BOTOX.
- Dysport and XEOMIN are injected deeper into the skin than BOTOX.
- Dysport and XEOMIN spread more than BOTOX.
Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm can evaluate your face, listen to your goals, and recommend which product is best for you. We may even combine the 2 for a comprehensive rejuvenation.
Real Patient Results
View our BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN gallery.
A treatment with these injectables can take as little as 10 minutes. First, we apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to numb the area, and then your injector uses a very fine needle to inject a tiny amount of BOTOX, Dysport, or XEOMIN into the muscles that contract and cause dynamic wrinkles.
You'll be able to see improvement after just a few days, and your smoother skin may last up to 4 months. When your results begin to fade, you can repeat the treatment for continued improvement.
An Emphasis on Natural-Looking Results
Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm believe cosmetic procedures are only truly successful when they aren't noticeable. When it comes to BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN treatments, patients are sometimes concerned that their results will look unnatural or "frozen." You can rest assured that is not the case for our patients. We take a conservative approach, using small doses of these products to ensure that your face moves easily and naturally — just with fewer wrinkles.
Treatments for Men
More men are getting injectable treatments than ever before. Social media and the desire to look younger in a competitive work environment are motivating men to seek non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN. Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm's team can perform these discreet treatments during a lunch hour, and they don't require downtime. We can maintain your masculine facial contours while making you look younger and more alert.
Surgical & Non-Surgical Alternatives
In some cases, these injections may be the best option if you are seeking results that last longer or are more extensive. Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm offer several anti-aging procedures that may be right for you, including:
Additionally, there are other non-surgical treatments that can be used on their own or combined with BOTOX, Dysport, or XEOMIN for a comprehensive non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Some of the options include:
Whatever your goals are, Dr. Jarmuz and Dr. Boehm can use their experience and skill to create a customized plan just for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the main differences between BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN?
BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and XEOMIN share the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin type A. Although they work in the same fashion, they are a bit different from each other. Many of these differences are fairly technical and don't mean much to the everyday patient. For example, Dysport has a different consistency than BOTOX Cosmetic. It's important to remember that each patient is different, and Dr. Jarmuz or Dr. Boehm can help you better understand which product (or combination of products) is best for you during your consultation.
What is the difference between these products and injectable fillers?
BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN are used to treat "dynamic wrinkles," which are wrinkles that form due to repeated facial movement. The active ingredient works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Injectable fillers are different from these products because, just as their name implies, they physically fill in wrinkles using special gels. This makes injectable fillers especially useful on deeper lines, such as nasolabial folds.
Will people be able to tell I've had treatment?
No. When performed by a trained medical professional, such as the injectors at our office, BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN yield results that are subtle and natural-looking. Your friends and family may comment that you look well-rested, refreshed, or simply better — but they likely won't know you've had injections unless you tell them.
