Botox is used for deep wrinkles due to long term use of muscles of expression (i.e. Crow’s feet, Frown lines and forehead). Botox is injected into the superficial muscles of expression, relaxing the muscles and thus allowing the wrinkles to “relax” away. Results occur within 1 week following treatment without any down time. The treatment is well tolerated resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Although originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms, BOTOX Cosmetic was quickly recognized for its cosmetic value. Properly placed injections of BOTOX Cosmetic block nerve impulses sent to muscles, weakening them to the point where they cannot contract, and temporarily eliminating moderately severe furrows and lines. BOTOX Cosmetic is used to treat the following:
- Forehead Lines
- Frown Lines Between The Eyes
- Crows Feet
- Bands On The Neck Area
In addition to its cosmetic applications, it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.

Dysport is an injectable that is a wrinkle relaxer that works similarly to BOTOX® to reduce and soften dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face to provide younger-looking skin in both men and women. Dynamic wrinkles are formed by recurrent facial movements and expressions (like frowning, laughing, and smiling) that over time causes the overlying skin to have a furrowed line that is visible even when your face is relaxed. This injectable temporarily softens the muscle so the skin appears smoother, but with natural-looking results that don’t give you a “frozen” face.
Dysport is a popular treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. Although the results it produces are similar to other more known botulinum toxin type A proteins on the market ,there are some slight differences.

Jeuveau is used by both men and women to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and is an alternative to Botox and Dysport.
Jeuveau, also known as #NEWTOX, is another purified form of botulinum toxin that has been shown to deliver temporary improvement in moderate to severe frown lines by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines and reducing the appearance of movement lines. Jeuveau is another, non-surgical option that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain a more youthful appearance.
Muscle control that creates your wrinkles begin to diminish in five to seven days, and full correction occurs in 14 days. There is no real downtime associated with a Jeuveau treatment, although you may see sleight redness at the injection site immediately after treatment that diminishes very quickly. The results of Jeuveau (or competitive neurotoxin brands such as Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin) can last anywhere from three to four months.
Does it really matter who injects my Botox, Dysport or Jeuveau?
It is important that you use a highly trained specialist who is familiar with facial anatomy, advanced techniques and medical conditions that might prevent you from having the treatment. Bad injection outcome is common when patients go to individuals who are not experts in the field of medicine. These “practioners” commonly administer incorrect dosages and treat in the wrong areas, resulting in an undesirable and unnatural outcome.
