Botox, Dysport, & Xeomin

Well-known injections effective at smoothing facial wrinkles and creases by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles.

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin: How Do They Compare?

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections are popular FDA-approved injectable neuromodulators. They temporarily relax muscles in the face to soften lines created by repeated muscle activity. The treatments block nerve signals to the muscles, making it so that those muscles can no longer contract. The outcome is smooth, relaxed skin.

Dysport is the preferred treatment for bigger areas of the face. Botox treats smaller areas concentrating on deeper wrinkling. Xeomin is most like Botox in that both need up to two weeks for full treatment. On the other hand, Dysport has a quicker onset for patients seeking faster results.

Everyone’s body metabolizes each toxin differently, so patients undergo trial and error to figure out which treatment works best for them. When initially deciding on which to go with, consult with an experienced aesthetic professional at Bare VT. We are a trusted provider of these injections in the Burlington region of Vermont.

Patients turn to Botox to enhance their look because it:



These before and after pictures show real Botox results of our patients. Botox’s unique formulation temporarily improves moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Like any cosmetic treatment, individual results may vary.

How Does Botox Work?

Wrinkles on the face result from cellular changes, free radical damage, or reduction in collagen over time. When a person frowns, squints, or raises their eyebrows repeatedly, the muscle contractions cause skin to fold and furrow. Gradually, this leads to unwanted facial lines. Botox goes under the skin surface to block muscle contractions. This temporarily reduces crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines in adults.


How Much Does Botox Cost?

Botox pricing is determined on a per unit basis. Depending on the treatment area and personal plan, Botox cost differs greatly.

Botox Results

Patients may start seeing improvement within 24-48 hours, and full results in 30 days. The results vary but can last up to four months for moderate to severe wrinkles.

Botox Side Effects

When performed by an experienced doctor, Botox injections are safe. Complications may include:

  • Headache
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Pain, swelling, or bruising at the treatment site
  • Drooling or crooked smile
  • Excessive tearing or dry eyes

Benefits of Dysport

Dysport quickly smooths away wrinkles and creases, restoring a youthful appearance. Like Botox, it delivers a natural look, sessions are quick, and there is no downtime necessary. Distinct benefits include:

  • Versatile treatments target the forehead, nose, mouth, crow’s feet, and neck
  • Smooth consistency
  • Long-lasting results visible after 2-3 days
  • Prevents new wrinkles
  • Fewer injections needed and more affordable than Botox

Dysport Before and After

See our patients’ before and after pictures to see the possible outcome with Dysport. Treatment results may vary per individual.

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport is like Botox in that it works to temporarily cease communication between muscles and nerves. Injected facial muscles stop contracting and as a result, skin stays smooth. Dysport is effective at diminishing frown lines, crow’s feet, and other creases from regular facial expressions.


How Much Does Dysport Cost?

Dysport cost varies per treatment area. After determining your aesthetic goals, a qualified nurse will estimate how many units you need.

Dysport Results

Improvement in your skin may be noticeable as soon as two days after the treatment. These results can last for up to four months with proper skin care.

Dysport Side Effects

Like any cosmetic procedure, there are risks and side effects to consider when you choose Dysport. Some of these are mild and should resolve on their own:

  • Pain at injection site
  • Sinus pressure
  • Hives or rashes at injection site
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Nausea

Benefits of Xeomin

Like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin treatments are quick and painless. Xeomin’s benefits include the following:

  • Natural results in 7-9 days
  • Suitable for addressing forehead furrows, frown lines, crow’s feet
  • Slightly more affordable than Botox
  • No additives, reducing risk for reactions

Xeomin Before and After

Before and after images of our patients who have received Xeomin help future patients get a better idea of what they can expect. Individual results may vary.

How Does Xeomin Work?

As your skin ages and loses elasticity, repeated frowning and squinting can cause permanent frown lines. Xeomin’s active ingredient, botulinum type A, targets nerve endings to block muscle contractions. This treatment inhibits these contractions and temporarily smooths the lines between your eyebrows.


How Much Does Xeomin Cost?

Xeomin cost depends on the treatment area and the patient’s skin condition. 

Xeomin Results

Treatment results begin to show as early as 3-4 days post-injection. Patients enjoy smooth skin for up to three months. The duration varies per individual depending on factors like skin care routine, patient age, and skin type.

Xeomin Side Effects

Common side effects after getting Xeomin include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Swollen or bruised eyelids
  • Reduced blinking
  • Pain, redness, swelling at injection site

Bonnie G. S.

The people who work at Bare are fantastic! So kind and welcoming. It’s a bit of an uncomfortable feeling knowing what you want changed about you and Bare makes you feel normal and beautiful!

I recently left a review about my lashes I had gotten done but want to update my review because Shelby reached out to me immediately to try and make it right! Like I said in my previous review I absolutely love this place and the fact they were so quick to contact me to resolve the problem I was having is incredible. I wish I could give them 10 stars. Thanks again for helping me out and I look forward to my next appointment.

I recently had an appointment for vein treatment. Sclerotherapy and laser was done. I was so impressed by the professional treatment I received. My results were amazing and will continue to improve. If anyone has unsightly spider veins and want to see them go away go to Bare Medical Spa in Burlington and see Sarah and Jamie.

Patricia C.

I have always had really dark circles under my eyes, but was always skeptical about getting fillers. Sarah quickly put me at ease and explained in detail about the process. I had my cheeks and tear troughs done and could not be happier.

Wren A.

I’ve been going to Bare for a while now (getting the laser hair removal packages) and they are amazing! They’re very informative and they make you feel welcome everytime you walk through the door.
