What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable dynamic wrinkle treatment that temporarily relaxes the muscles. When used for cosmetic purposes, BOTOX® targets the muscles in the face to alleviate wrinkles. Smiling, laughing, frowning and other expressions all contribute to muscles contracting, which creates wrinkles over time and contributes to the facial features looking older and the skin seeming less elastic.
What Is Dysport®
As a similar drug to BOTOX®, Dysport® is an injectable neurotoxin used to treat wrinkles and facial folds in the skin. Both drugs are derived from a form of botulinum toxin type A and are injected directly into the muscles to temporarily relax and soften lines in the face. Common injection sites include forehead lines that are produced when you frown or lines around the eyes and nose. BOTOX® and Dysport® also treat protruding neck bands as well as a gummy smile. However, it is vital that both BOTOX® and Dysport® be administered by a healthcare professional who can properly inject and manipulate the correct amount of the drug to produce the most aesthetically pleasing results.
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau® works by targeting the underlying cause of dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form on the face when you frown, smile, squint, look confused, or get angry. All these expressions require your facial muscles to move and contract, which can cause the overlying skin to form wrinkles and fine lines. Over time, these wrinkles become a permanent fixture of your appearance.
Jeuveau’s® formula contains a purified form of a neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin blocks nerve signals to the muscles, which prevents stiff facial muscles from being able to contract. This helps to soften the appearance of existing wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. It also helps prevent new wrinkles from forming
