my first toxin treatment was "british Botox" (ie Dysport) 60u for my frown when I was 26. LOVED IT. then I had 20u Botox botox and it didn't work, then 30u, sort of worked, 40u just in my frown and finally it was frozen for 3 weeks then started wearing off. So I was a Dysport girl for 11 years. Then I tried Xeomin (a little reluctantly) after I got used to the fact that my face still FELT like it was moving despite looking in the mirror and it was definitely FROZEN. I found Xeomin to last for ages, particularly in my frown, probably longer than Dysport although from treatment to treatment over the years the duration varies so it is hard to say exactly. Plus I like no movement so I don't tend to let it wear off totally before retreating. you can see in my frown before and after photo I attached that my frown still wasn't ready to be treated but my forehead was so bad that I couldn't wait any longer. my treatment was on 30/11/15 then 18/5/16. So this time I only had 10 units in my frown and 9 units in my forehead. I will ONLY have Xeomin now unless they come out with a purified version of Dysport, because I have met quite a few people now that Botox & Dysport stopped working on because you can develop antibodies which stop all brands of tox working EVER AGAIN. Personally, I don't want to die with wrinkles. Xeomin is the purest and has the lowest risk, it costs the same, works the same if not better actually on me. But it is a lot to do with your injector as to how and where they inject you. like I get my xeomin injected quite differently to Dysport, particularly in my forehead, having smaller units in more places seems to work better with Xeomin. It pays to go to someone good even if it costs more as all injectors are not the same. I get my frown,eyes,forehead, upside down smile and nose wrinkles treated 3-6 monthly. its all about prevention!!!!
Xeomin now my preferred choice
Trying to get before and after photos to load (having issues) prior treatment was 30/11/15 which my 20 unit frown hadn't worn off yet but I was going to a wedding and my forehead was terrible so had a "top up" 10 unit frown and 9 unit forehead as well as lower face
Xeomin my preferred choice
Still trying to get photos to work for my review
