Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin, Dysport and Jeuveau are among the most frequently used cosmetic procedure in the U.S. to smooth wrinkles that form due to facial expression and movement. Frowning, squinting, smiling, and other facial movements cause the development of static lines and wrinkles.
Many people ask, “when is the best time to start Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau?” Many people wait to schedule their first neurotoxin appointment after expression lines appear. The longer you wait the more difficult it will be to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Prevention is the best option and will benefit you in the long run. Get ahead of the expression lines before they develop or worsen.
Chronological aging is easier to stop in its tracks than some might think. You don't have to drive to a big city to prevent and treat your wrinkles. We provide Amarillo and the surrounding areas with everything they need to prevent significant signs of aging. We carry Xeomin, Dysport Jeuveau and Botox in our Amarillo clinic to give you a variety of all the currently FDA approved options!
Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin, and Dysport all contain the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin. They are injected into specific muscles that cause expression lines. Some of the most common placed injection are in the glabella (between the eyes) that cause the “11” lines, the forehead to prevent and soften horizontal lines, and by the eye to help with “crow’s feet”.
Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin, and Dysport are neurotoxins that are FDA approved and have been used safely for years. They work to temporarily inhibit signals in the muscles that cause them to contract preventing worsening of expression lines. This will assist to visually decrease “11” lines, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet.
Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin all contain the same active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A. The main difference between the four products are in the formulation. Currently in the United States there are only four botulinum neurotoxins licensed for use. The four products ProgressMD uses are onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox Cosmetic), incobotulinumtonxin A (Xeomin), prabotulinumtoxin A (Jeuveau) and abobotulinumtoxin A (Dysport). These designated names were developed to emphasize that each of the individual products vary in potency and that they are not interchangeable. This influences the dose and units that you receive depending on the product you select. All work toward the same goals of achieving cosmetic improvement of fine lines and wrinkles (rhytids).
Differences in the formulation include protective proteins attached to the molecules of the product. Botox Cosmetic has larger protein, causing this to be a heavy molecule which takes a little longer to see results. Dysport has small proteins causing it to be slight decrease the onset of results. Xeomin is a more purified version of the botulinum toxin A and doesn't have have any proteins attached. This decreases the incidence of developing a resistance to the product. Jeuveau's unique perk is that it doesn't spread out as far post injection and its best for those who are more prone to having Ptosis and or that have heavy eyelids before receiving any injections.
With the previously noted difference between Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin, and Dysport, they all work with the same mechanism of action. All three neurotoxins prevent acetylcholine (ACh) release from the presynaptic membrane, causing temporary calming of the muscle contractions by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses.
With this temporary effect, the decrease muscle movement helps smooth fine lines, and further prevents wrinkles (rhytids) from becoming deeper.

To Maintain Affordable Regular Unit Rates and To Offer Specials on Botox, Xeomin, Jeuveau and Dysport we are adding in small minimums for the two kinds of appointments patient need. We inject conservatively at our clinic the first time we treat you since we can always add more units of the above items in the following 14 days once the product has fully had a chance to set into the areas treated. Once any of the above are injected and if something were to feel heavy - it cannot be reversed quickly like Dermal Fillers. We also do not feel that area pricing structures benefit clients pocket books. We do charge by the unit to keep things affordable and customized to your needs. We do not pre-draw syringes like some providers do either with large doses for every client. Our providers will evaluate your specific needs before they draw product for you - also ensuring you are getting injected with X amount that was pulled into a syringe this morning that may be more than what you actually need today in our chair. We highly suggest booking a 2 week follow up if its your first time with us- or contacting us post 14 days from seeing you if a small touch-up is needed to ensure you enjoy your results for the next 3-5 months.
Consultations are free and we do suggest them if you are interested, but are unsure about what option to pick, how many units you might need and or any other questions about this popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. We are happy to help answer any questions you might have and ensure you are a good candidate heath wise before we move forward with the treatment itself. You can book both the consultation and the appointment on the same day and or separately.
