What can Nuceiva® Do for Me?
Although Nuceiva® is similar to Botox® and Dysport®, it is unique in its strictly aesthetic formula. This product was designed exclusively for cosmetic purposes, particularly to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
How do Botox®, Dysport®, & Nuceiva® Work?
The skin on your face is stretched across facial muscles. As your muscles move, the skin stretched over them shifts and folds. When the skin folds repeatedly on a regular basis, creases start to appear in those folds, causing what we call wrinkles.
Botox®, Dysport®, and Nuceiva® are injectable treatments made from the botulinum A toxin. When injected into specific facial muscles, the toxin has a temporary freezing effect; blocking commands for movement from reaching the muscle for a period of weeks. Because the muscle has stopped forcing the skin to fold, the crease starts to smooth out, giving your face a more youthful and relaxed appearance.
None of these treatments are permanent, however, you are unlikely to need treatment more often than every three months. You will most likely start to notice the effects of Botox® within a few days.
What can Botox® Do for Me?
Botox has been approved for a variety of cosmetic and therapeutic uses. Whether you’re interested in enhancing certain features or finding relief for certain conditions, Botox may work for you. In addition to the dermal filling uses Botox is well known for, Botox can also be used to help with conditions like TMJ (jaw pain) and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
