Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after Plastic Surgeons in Palm Beach for patients interested in Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. These products are well known for treating wrinkles by causing muscles to relax. They have been proven to be a very safe, effective non-surgical treatment, and have been used in millions of patients. Wrinkles can cause someone to look older, less youthful, and less confident. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin help reduce these wrinkles to achieve a younger, smoother, and healthier appearance. Dr. Rueda is well known for his unique and novel technique for injection that minimizes bruising; he performs these injections guided by a special machine that helps the needle avoid any veins in the face and thereby greatly reduce the chance of bleeding or bruising.

In order to make muscles contract the nerves must give a signal to the muscle by releasing a substance called “acetylcholine”. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work by preventing this substance from being released by the nerves thereby decreasing muscle movement (relaxing the muscle). The wrinkles formed by movement of the muscle are called “dynamic wrinkles”, and are best treated with these products. Wrinkles that are present without movement of the face are called “static wrinkles”, and are best treated with methods like fillers, lasers, peels, and surgery. The FDA has approved the use of Botox for use in eleven lines (also known as “glabellar lines”) as well as for crow’s feet. Its effect can last anywhere from 3-6 months, although may last longer in some individuals.

Although they have different names (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) these products are all substances derived from the same chemicals. Their individual characteristics have been compared in multiple scientific articles, but more similarities than differences were found. Botox was the first product in the market and is therefore the most widely used. There is some scientific evidence to suggest that Dysport may work faster than Botox or Xeomin, however, all of them seem to have the same duration of action. Xeomin has less ingredients in its formula and therefore has become popular for patients who want a more natural alternative.

Recovery and Downtime

Recovery and Downtime


Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are placed with injections in the muscle to be treated. The dose largely depends on the desired effect and the muscle to be treated. For patients who want a natural look with less wrinkles a modest amount is injected. For patient’s who desire a frozen look, a larger dose is needed. In general, men need larger doses because of the larger and bulkier nature of their muscles. Dr. Rueda does not believe in standard doses and performs a careful analysis of each patient’s goals and anatomy. The dose is fine tuned until the patient achieves their desired outcomes; however this requires incredible precision and technical skill.
