So Many Neurotoxins!!! What’s the difference and which one is right for me?



There is almost no downtime necessary to administer neurotoxins. You can have your BOTOX injections without worrying about ruining your weekend plans or beach vacation because sun exposure will not impair the results of the toxin.

So Many Neurotoxins!!!

A little more information regarding the different neurotoxins can be found below:

If you were to imagine the active component in a few of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures, you probably wouldn’t picture neurotoxins. Instead, you’re probably envisioning something terrifying or dangerous.

Although the term “neurotoxin” conjures up images of something terrifying, in reality, neurotoxins have many beneficial and harmless uses. Neurotoxins are utilized in a variety of highly desirable cosmetic procedures. Xeomin, Jeuveau, BOTOX, and Dysport are all available at I AM Medical Spas. Let’s dive deeper into the cosmetic usage of neurotoxins so you can grasp the science behind these anti-aging treatments.

Botulinum Toxin Type A

The ingredients in BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are botulinum toxin type A, which comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The neurotoxic operates by weakening or paralyzing the muscles. Nerves can also be blocked by botulinum toxin type A. Depending on the dose and product type of the neurotoxic, the effects can continue for three to twelve months. Multiple companies have created cosmetic products containing this neurotoxin to attain various cosmetic and functional effects.


Using botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX is among the most popular cosmetic procedures. It is generally used to relax face muscles, thereby minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. Crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, and many more signs of aging can be effectively treated with BOTOX. Excessive perspiration can be controlled with BOTOX, a neurotoxin, by blocking the nerves in the underarm area.


Dysport is an injectable that uses a different dilution of botulinum toxin type A. The molecular weight of this substance differs somewhat from that of BOTOX. When administered by an experienced practitioner, this diluting agent retains all of the toxin’s effectiveness. Because it gives a natural yet enhanced look without coming across as “frozen,” this toxin happens to be one of our favorites.


Xeomin is a prescription drug injected into muscles that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin refers to their toxins as SmartTox. In order to achieve consistently smoother frown lines with each treatment, Xeomin® the SmartTox uses a double-filtered solution that eliminates extraneous components.


Jeuveau is a cosmetic procedure that uses botulinum toxin type A. When compared to BOTOX, Jeuveau is very similar and gives very similar outcomes. The main distinction is in the formulation of the two products and the fact that Jeuveau employs an alternative method for neurotoxic purification. Jeuveau is thought to have the lowest diffusion of any toxin and may be the most exact.
