What do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin Have in Common?
First there was Botox, then came Dysport, and now there is Xeomin. The names of these products represent a group of therapeutic dermatologist treatments called, “neuro-modulators.” This word describes the way in which they all diminish the appearance of wrinkles. By blocking a chemical between the nerve and muscle, these “neuro-modulators” prevent the contraction of that given muscle, thereby preventing the skin from folding and wrinkles from forming.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for cosmetic use and share a similar mechanism of action.
