Xeomin or Dysport
This is a common question here at Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness. Xeomin and Dysport are both phenomenal products and usually it comes down to personal preference. However, there are a few main differences.
Xeomin was created to be “cleaner” than its competitors because it has removed the proteins from the injection. The protein load in other products may be associated with patients not seeing results over long term use.
Dysport hit the market in 2009 and has been approved in 69 countries. Unlike its competitors, Dysport affects a larger treatment area. Results tend to show in 2-3 days and seems to work stronger.

Dysport & Xeomin Aftercare
The benefit of dysport & xeomin is there is no recovery time. However, there are precautions that should be taken to maintain desired results.
- Keep your head up and avoid laying down the first 4-6 hours. It would be best if you were extra cautious the first few hours to prevent unwanted complications and negative side effects.
- Avoid sleeping on your face the first night. You want to make sure the product stays in the desired area.
Do not rub or massage the treated area. We get it, the muscles may feel uncomfortable after your injections. Rubbing can cause increased stress in those areas.
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Alcohol thins the blood and can lead to bruising.
- Avoid strenuous activities for 24-48 hours. This will help prevent your blood pressure from rising and minimize bruising risk.
