There are many different brands and types of facial injections on the market and it can be arduous work to sift through all of them looking for the right fit.

Dysport for example is a faster acting injection but may not have as long lasting effects as Botox. Xeomin is the newest neurotoxin to the US and is the purest form of botulinum toxin type A.
