Botox Dysport Xeomin Jeuveau

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau?

Since earning FDA-approval in 2002, Botox has become a household name and synonymous with neurotoxin injections.

To the extent that many people refer to all neuromodulators as Botox. However, there are actually four neurotoxin options currently available – Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.

If you are considering a neurotoxin to relax wrinkles and lines, you may be wondering if Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or Jeuveau is right for you.

Here’s a look at each of these FDA-approved neuromodulators according to candidacy, onset of results, and longevity.


Botox is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that is injected into targeted facial muscles in order to block communication between nerves and muscles.

In doing so, Botox partially or fully inhibits muscle contraction and relaxes wrinkles and lines.

It also helps to prevent expression lines – horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet – from becoming deeper and more prominent.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Botox?

Botox is an excellent option for anyone who wants to refresh their appearance and counteract bothersome wrinkles.

It is especially well-suited to women and men who want to zero-in on finer or more discrete wrinkles and are looking for a neurotoxin with an exceptional track record.

How Quickly Does It Take Effect?

Following Botox injections, many patients begin to note wrinkle reduction in three-to-five days. It can take up to one week to see full effects.

How Long Do Botox Results Last?

Botox results can last three-to-four months.


Dysport received FDA-approval in 2010, but had been used successfully in Europe for a number of years prior.

Like Botox, it is derived from Clostridium botulinum bacterium and works to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Dysport?

One of the key benefits of Dysport is that it offers greater diffusion than Botox. Accordingly, it is ideal for treating larger wrinkles or areas like the forehead. With that being said, it may not be optimal for targeting finer lines.

How Quickly Does It Take Effect?

Many Dysport users prefer this neurotoxin because it produces noticeable wrinkle reduction in 2-3 days.

How Long Do Dysport Results Last?

Dysport results typically last 3-4 months. Although some patients find that effects can persist for longer.


Xeomin is made of IncobotulinumtoxinA and, like Botox, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, it is injected into muscles to smooth skin. However, it is the only neurotoxin that is free of any additives.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Xeomin?

In the event that a patient develops a tolerance to Botox or Dysport, Xeomin can serve as an ideal solution.

How Quickly Does It Take Effect?

Xeomin usually takes effect within three-to-four days. But it may be 30 days until final outcomes become evident.

How Long Do Xeomin Results Last?

While Xeomin results are said to last 3 months, some patients report effects fading after 2 months.

With that being said, this longevity is appreciated by those that have become resistant to Botox or Dysport.


Jeuveau is an FDA-approved neurotoxin, and the first new neuromodulator to hit the aesthetic market in nearly a decade. It is for cosmetic-use only and currently cleared for treatment of moderate to severe forehead lines.

It’s worth noting that Jeuveau is molecularly identical to Botox and offers the same efficacy and safety.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Jeuveau?

If you are looking for an alternative to Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin or are a new neurotoxin user, Jeuveau may be right for you. It’s also an attractive option to women and men seeking the latest technology.

How Long Do Jeuveau Results Last?

Like Botox, Jeuveau results typically last three-to-four months.
