Benefits of Dysport® and XEOMIN® for the NYC Area
Dysport® and XEOMIN® appeal to Long Island and New York area residents who prefer these injectable BOTOX® alternatives for the subtle improvement they can deliver, often at a lower cost. All three neuromodulators contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, which interrupts the nerve impulses of targeted muscles, diminishing the wrinkles that are created when those muscles contract. Once the medication takes effect, usually within seven days, the appearance of dynamic wrinkles is reduced, helping patients look relaxed and rejuvenated. Results last three to six months.
At Cosmoplastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh will explain how Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and BOTOX® Cosmetic compare so that together you can select the right product for your needs. XEOMIN®, which in Europe has been used safely and effectively since 2008, contains no additives, so it may involve less risk of developing antibodies. For this reason, it may also be appropriate for patients for whom BOTOX® has lost its effectiveness.
Dysport®, on the other hand, has the added advantage that it takes effect quicker for those who have an event and need to see results earlier. Both Dysport® and XEOMIN® tend to spread more easily, which can be beneficial for certain treatment areas but not for others—another reason why you should select a provider with experience and knowledge .
Dr. Alizadeh and his team at Cosmoplastic Surgery have performed tens of thousands of injections and have, as a result, perfected the procedure to achieve maximum results with minimal downtime and pain. In one simple Dysport® or XEOMIN® treatment session, we can improve not only the appearance of lines, but also the shape of your brows, eyes, and corners of your mouth.
If you've decided to try an injectable neuromodulator to help improve your appearance, far more important than the product used is the individual performing the treatment. Dr. Alizadeh performs most injectable treatments himself because doing so gives him control over your safety and aesthetic outcomes.
Dr. Alizadeh understands that, even though Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and BOTOX® Cosmetic contain the same active ingredient, they are all formulated slightly differently and, therefore, have advantages and disadvantages. He has the training and long-term experience to use the medication with skill and confidence to achieve wonderful, natural-looking results.
