What is the difference between Dysport, Botox & Xeomin?

This is a question that we are asked often by clients and the first thing to know is Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Medicis) and Xeomin (Merz) are all similar neuromodulators that are indicated to temporarily alter or reduce nerve impulses of targeted muscles; therefore reducing or causing atrophy of the muscle (which eliminates contraction-induced wrinkles).

Each brand has a slight difference with their formulation of essentially the same substance “bacterium clostridium botulinum (or Botulinum Toxin A) which all work the same way by blocking nerve impulses of the treated muscles.

How do Neuromodulators temporarily reduce wrinkles?

By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses you are in a sense causing paralysis of the muscles (temporarily) which prevents them from moving and therefore no creasing in the skin can occur.

Which Neuromodulator is the most effective?

All work to correct what they are indicated to do: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are indicated for Crow’s feet, frown lines, nasal squint lines, and lines around the neck, eyebrow lifting, underarm sweating and migraines. Dysport in my opinion offers greater results for the crow’s feet without affecting the smile. From what I have seen and experienced myself from Botox & Xeomin is that they offer better correction to deeper wrinkles than Dysport.


The difference between Xeomin & Botox in formulation is Botox has a protein added which our body can build a resistance to and therefore Botox over time may not work as well as Xeomin (this isn’t guaranteed, however the potential is there).

Our physicians currently offer Xeomin & Botox at our clinics and they are both reconstituted at the same level of 1:1. Reconstitution levels will affect results more than whether you use Xeomin or Botox. Some doctors will dilute more than others (1:1 is the recommended ratio for the reduction of wrinkles).

Tattoo Removal – Performed by Students at our Laser Academy!

Students at Body Bar Laser Academy are proud to demonstrate their Tattoo Removal skills using our Candela Alex TriVantage Q-Swithched laser. The ATV is effective in the removal of all colours of ink on all skin colours. Tattoo removal requires a laser that has a very short pulse duration in order to avoid effecting surrounding tissue while treatment. Nanosecond or Picosecond lasers have been the gold standard in removing ink & pigmented legions on all skin types.
