Alternatives to BOTOX
There are several alternatives to BOTOX: Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. Each of these wrinkle relaxers (also known as neuromodulators) achieves similar outstanding results to BOTOX. They do have some differences in terms of their makeup and benefits.
Like BOTOX, Dysport smooths the face and creates a more youthful appearance. However, Dysport is a more diluted substance than BOTOX. This factor allows Dysport to spread more quickly and thus be effective sooner. Dysport allows more range of motion, and it’s a good choice for larger areas of the face, such as the forehead.
Dysport can be used as an alternative for those who have developed a resistance to BOTOX over time.
Xeomin is as effective as Botox in smoothing away wrinkles and lines. It is known for being a more pure neuromodulator, which means it can be less likely to lead to an allergic reaction. Xeomin also has the benefit for patients that it’s less easy to build a resistance to over time.
Xeomin is an excellent alternative to BOTOX, providing all the benefits, the same treatment time, and smoother, younger-looking results.
Out of the different types of neuromodulators that achieve similar effects as BOTOX does, Jeuveau is the most similar to BOTOX. If you’re already using BOTOX and love the effects, but you’ve developed a resistance to it, Jeuveau may be a perfect alternative for you.
Studies have shown that Jeuveau may provide results more quickly than BOTOX, and it may last longer as well. For those looking for an alternative to BOTOX, Jeuveau will provide smoother skin, a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance, and eliminate or greatly reduce wrinkles.
Daxxify is a neurotoxin similar to BOTOX that targets facial lines and wrinkles. These lines and wrinkles are formed by repeated muscle contractions such as frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows, causing the skin to furrow and fold.
DAXXIFY works below the surface to temporarily reduce underlying muscle activity for fewer lines and wrinkles similar to BOTOX. It’s FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, with results that last six months for most and up to nine months for some.
