There are so many types of Botox what’s the difference ?

The biggest difference between brands is the form of botulinum toxin that is used. Botox is made of onabotulinumtoxinA, Dysport is abobotulinumtoxinA, Jeuveau is another form of botulinum toxin type A, and Xeomin is incobotulinumtoxinA. At the end of the day, all of these forms are effective in relaxing muscular contraction, so all will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, there are some slight nuances that arise due to the different formulations.

Depending on the brand used some brands have a faster onset According to the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM), the average onset of Dysport is 3 hours, Botox is 72 hours, and Xeomin is 96 hours. In practice, most people notice the results of Dysport and Jeuveau within 3-7 days post injection, while Botox and Xeomin are typically noticeable after 1-2 weeks.

Why do some people become resistant to botox ?

some people may develop a tolerance or resistance to neurotoxins due to the creation of antibodies. A person’s immune system may identify the ingredients used in these injections as being a foreign invader, so it responds by producing antibodies that neutralize their effect. While resistance can occur with any of these four types of injections, it’s most common with Botox and Dysport. Botox and Dysport contain additives that can “irritate” the immune system and, thus, trigger the creation of antibodies.

Xeomin, on the other hand, consists solely of botulinum toxin, so it’s less likely to cause resistance than its counterparts, however there still have been reported cases of tolerance to xeomin. This has led researchers to believe that it might be the actual botulinum toxin causing antibody formation instead of, or possibly in addition to the additives, however the jury is still out on that. All in all, only about 1 in 100 people who receive a neurotox injection will develop a resistance to it.

What should activities should I avoid after Botox injection?

Do not rub or massage the treated area and avoid make-up if possible.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face the first night, DO NOT WEAR SUNGLASSES

  • Do not exercise or partake in any strenuous activity for the next 12 hrs

  • Avoid excessive alcohol consumption for the next 24hrs

  • Do not have any beauty treatments on your face e.g. facials, facial massage for 2 weeks- this may cause the injected solution to spread to nearby muscles.

  • Avoid exposure to strong sunlight, very cold temperatures and saunas for the next 2 weeks

What should I do after Botox ?

Frown repeatedly for about one hour immediately following the treatment. This will help the treatment to be more effective by increasing the uptake by the targeted muscle groups, then after this time try to avoid extreme facial expressions for the next 12 hours

  • Keep upright for the first 4 hours

  • You can gently apply light make-up after treatment but use a light dabbing motion instead of a rubbing or spreading motion
