If you have fine lines or wrinkles, the neuromodulators BOTOX, Dysport or Jeuveau could be a great way to smooth out your features. These medications are highly effective at treating and preventing wrinkles that are caused by years of moving your face.
How do BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau work?
Many people have heard about BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau but not many know how they work. These medications contain abobotulinumtoxinA (or the Botulinum toxin type A). The Botulinum toxin blocks muscular nerve activity, which causes a temporary reduction in your muscular activity. That means your facial muscles temporarily don’t contract to cause frown lines. All of the rest of your facial muscles continue to work normally, so you can smile, laugh, and more.
No anesthesia is necessary for BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau injections, and patients typically only experience minimal pain, if any during the procedure.
After cleansing the treatment area, Dr. Dodde or a skilled and certified injector carefully injects the medication into the muscles of the face that contribute to wrinkles using an extremely small needle to minimize discomfort. Since there are many important muscles in the face, it is vital that your aesthetician has experience administering BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau.
A treatment session can take as little as 15 minutes, so it can fit easily into your schedule.
BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau Results and Recovery
After the injections, patients will see noticeable results after a day, with the results peaking at approximately 2 weeks. Side effects of these medications may vary from person to person and are typically mild and resolved quickly.
It is important for patients to have BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau administered every few months for the most effective and ongoing improvements.
Why get BOTOX, Dysport or Jeuveau treatments?
BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau are injections that can help smooth out the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles and to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. These medications prevent troublesome facial muscles from contracting to create frown lines, which can help your face appear younger and less harsh. In addition, carefully planned injections can arch or elevate the eyebrows, subtly lift the lips and potentially help with tension headaches and migraines. BOTOX has been around for several years and has been used extensively around the world with safe, consistent results.
