Injectibles (Dysport / Xeomin)

Dysport and Xeomin are botulinum toxin products used to treat frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, the forehead and around the eyes. It also treats chin creases, horizontal neck lines and wrinkles around the mouth. 


Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. The injection of botulinum enables the muscle to relax by blocking nerve signals or chemicals that tell muscles to contract. The result is skin that appears smoother.

  • Frown lines
  • Skin bands on the neck


  • It’s safe. It’s extremely rare to see a complication from Dysport/Xeomin that has been related to distant spread effect (affecting a distant muscle) when given at the proper dosages. (If you have had a dropped brow with past injections, always mention that during your initial consultation. There are muscles that will be avoided for that not to happen.)
  • It’s temporary. If it’s your first time considering injections, it can be reassuring to know the effect won’t last without re-injection every 3-4 months.
  • It’s not necessary to look frozen. Small doses at just the right time will create a soft, animated look. There is no need to relax the muscles to the point of no movement. The purpose is to relax the muscle so its movement doesn’t create a wrinkle in motion, which can then turn into a wrinkle at rest.
  • Dysport/Xeomin are given with the tiniest of needles. Bruising is typically not an issue with Dysport/Xeomin injections.
  • Dysport/Xeomin is often combined with other cosmetic skin procedures as part of a customized treatment plan. Chemical peels, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion can further improve your results and help prevent new lines and wrinkles.


Results begin to be noticeable in a few days but can take up to a week for full effect. Results typically last 3-4 months.  


Procedures generally last around 15 minutes, and no anesthesia is required. You can get back to your routine immediately.  The only word of caution is to not rub or massage the injected areas, as the Dysport or Xeomin can spread to another area of your face and cause temporary facial weakness or drooping.
