Dysport and Xeomin: The Anti-Wrinkle Injection Alternatives You Need to Know About

Dr. Vi Sharma has worked in the field of cosmetic surgery

He has a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery, Monash University; and former member of the Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine and the Royal Australian College of General Practice.

For the past 15 years, Anti Wrinkle has obtained control of the “muscle relaxing” injectable arena. But two Anti Wrinkle alternatives have entered the market, Dysport and Xeomin.

Both are approved for use in Canada, following FDA approval in the United States. Although newcomers in the industry, Dysport and Xeomin were used in Europe for years to treat neuromuscular conditions before arriving in the North American market.


There are many similarities between the three non-surgical cosmetic treatments:

Anti Wrinkle, Dysport, and Xeomin contain the same protein ingredient derived from botulinum toxin type A, which is used to relax the muscles when injected.

All 3 have a duration of 3 to 6 months and take a few days to take effect (gradual onset).

All three products are excellent and effective for treating frown lines across the forehead and the two lines that form between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, masseter reduction, and treating neck banding.

Minor and temporary side effects may be experienced by any one of them after receiving the treatment.


Anti Wrinkle, Dysport, and Xeomin all have exceptional credit. You can compare them to Coke and Pepsi. Some may want Dysport because of its faster onset, while others are pretty satisfied with the results of Anti Wrinkle Injections and will not go to the other alternative. It is important to note that these three products should not be used interchangeably, and all of them should only be injected by a certified cosmetic doctor.

Onset Period

Dysport – 1 to 2 days and needs to be refrigerated

Anti Wrinkle – 3-4 days and needs to be refrigerated

Xeomin – takes a week for the full effect and doesn’t require refrigeration

Unit Size and Price

Dysport – has smaller molecules and is 10% cheaper than the 2. 50 units of Dysport is equivalent to 20 units of Anti Wrinkle.

Anti Wrinkle – same sized molecules and similar price with Xeomin

Xeomin – same sized molecules and comparable price with Xeomin

Pain Level and Stability

Dysport – less stingy when injected than Anti Wrinkle

Anti Wrinkle – stable around the injection site

Xeomin – no additives and lesser risk of antibody formation. However, the protein amount is less and can cause unwanted spread beyond the injection area.
