Home / Injectables / Wrinkle Relaxers

Ever since BOTOX® hit the market in the ’90s as a solution to reverse the signs of age, the popularity of the product and similar wrinkle relaxers has been enormous. Today you see people regularly heading into the med spa for their “tox,” and coming out afterward looking younger and refreshed. Now there are four different types of wrinkle relaxers–called neuromodulators–each specially formulated to relax your muscles and smooth away lines.

What Wrinkle Relaxers Do for You

Lines and wrinkles form by repetitive facial movements (think of smiling, frowning, squinting–even chewing). Over time, the muscles lose their ability to relax, and they remain contracted. This is what causes lines and wrinkles in your face. Neuromodulators are designed to force the muscles to relax, which causes the wrinkles to fade or disappear and prevents new wrinkles from occurring.

All neuromodulator injectables are based on botulinum toxin type A. This is a bacteria modified into a purified protein that is proven to be safe and effective. Botulinum toxin targets the muscles that are contracted, forming the wrinkle lines you want to get rid of. Botulinum toxin temporarily blocks nerve receptors in the muscle, stopping the muscles from being able to contract.

What Are the Different Types of Wrinkle Relaxers?

Taking years off your face is the goal, but where to start? BOTOX® is the go-to for many because it’s so well known. But others on the market are known to be excellent, too. Each has its own positives to think about when you’re choosing a product.

BOTOX® and Dysport are all fairly well-known wrinkle relaxers, although, of course, BOTOX® is a household name these days. Each of them can help you turn back the clock and slow down the signs of aging.

Essentially, they are similar products. Each of these injectables are FDA approved, and they are each based on the botulinum toxin. The effects last several months. Despite their similarities, each has its own unique take on the ultimate outcome of smoothing lines and wrinkles from your face.

BOTOX® and Dysport


What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a trusted injectable treatment, FDA-approved, to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and forehead. It’s perfect for targeted areas like crow’s feet and frown lines, providing a refreshed and youthful appearance. By relaxing the muscles, BOTOX® helps reduce the visible signs of aging with minimal discomfort and no downtime.


What is Dysport®?

Dysport® works similarly to BOTOX® but is often preferred for treating larger areas, such as the entire forehead. It’s specially formulated to spread more, offering a gentle smoothing effect that allows for natural facial expressions. If you’re seeking a subtle yet effective solution for a more relaxed look, Dysport® could be ideal.


Xeomin is approved for the same areas as Botox and Dysport. It has no additives or preservatives, leading to its nickname, “naked Botox.” This quality lowers your chance of building up a resistance to it. It is a good alternative to Boxtox or Dysport if you’ve built up a resistance to those wrinkle relaxers.

What to Expect During Treatment

The first step will be a consultation and discussion with our providers to talk about your cosmetic goals and to choose the right wrinkle relaxer for you. Once the consultation is done and you’re ready to begin, the treatment is short and simple. Our specialists will inject the wrinkle relaxer into the targeted area or areas. Once this is complete, you can be on your way–no downtime or recovery required. And with a smoother, younger-looking face, and a boost in your beauty and confidence!


Who is the ideal candidate for BOTOX®?

The ideal candidate for BOTOX® is anyone looking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, such as crow’s feet or forehead lines. It’s suitable for most adults in good health and seeking a non-invasive solution to signs of aging.

How long does the effect of BOTOX® last?

The effects of BOTOX® can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on individual factors like the area treated, your age, and your lifestyle. Regular follow-up treatments can help maintain a smooth, refreshed appearance.

Does BOTOX® treatment hurt?

BOTOX® injections involve minimal discomfort. Most clients describe the sensation as a slight pinch or sting, which quickly subsides. The procedure is quick, usually taking only a few minutes, and there’s no downtime afterward.

Are there any side effects of BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is generally safe and has few side effects. Some clients may experience mild bruising or redness at the injection site, but these are typically temporary. Rarely, some may experience headache or a slight drooping of the eyelid, which usually resolves on its own.

Can BOTOX® be used for conditions other than wrinkles?

Besides its cosmetic use in reducing wrinkles, BOTOX® is also FDA-approved for treating several medical conditions, including chronic migraines, excessive sweating, and certain muscle disorders. It’s a versatile treatment with both aesthetic and therapeutic benefits. However, it’s essential to consult with your healthcare provider to determine whether BOTOX® is a suitable treatment option for your specific medical condition.

Dysport® FAQs

How is Dysport® different from BOTOX®?

The key difference between Dysport and BOTOX® lies in their formulation, allowing Dysport® to spread more than BOTOX®. This characteristic makes Dysport® especially effective for treating larger areas like the forehead, providing a smoother transition between treated and untreated areas. Dysport’s® unique properties may also result in a more natural look, maintaining greater facial expression in the treated areas.

Who should consider Dysport® injections?

Dysport® is ideal for individuals who want to soften the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without sacrificing the natural movement in the rest of their face. It’s suitable for adults under 65 looking for a quick, effective solution to look fresher and more relaxed.

How long do the results of Dysport® last?

The results of Dysport® can last up to 4 months, though individual results may vary. Many clients see improvement within 2-3 days after treatment, with the peak effect occurring around 30 days post-injection.

Is the Dysport® injection painful?

Dysport® injections are generally well-tolerated. The procedure involves a fine needle, and most clients experience only minor discomfort similar to a quick pinch. The procedure is fast, typically taking only a few minutes, with minimal downtime required.

What are the potential side effects of Dysport®?

While Dysport® is safe for most people, some common side effects include slight pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, headache, and, in rare cases, eyelid drooping or muscle weakness. These effects are typically mild and resolve on their own. Always ensure that a qualified healthcare professional performs injections to minimize risks.
