What Are Botox® Dysport® & Nuceiva®?
Botox® has been a household name for 20 years, but you might be less familiar with Dysport® and Nuceiva®. All 3 are wrinkle 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.
By temporarily freezing the muscles, these treatments can help reduce the look of wrinkles.
How Do Botox® Dysport® & Nuceiva® Work?
The skin on your face is stretched across facial muscles. As your muscles move, the skin over top shifts and folds. When it folds repeatedly, creases start to appear in those folds, causing wrinkles.
When injected into your facial muscles, botulinum A toxin has a temporary freezing effect, creating less movement, and ultimately, fewer wrinkles. 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.
What Can Botox® Do for Me?
Botox® has been approved for a variety of cosmetic and therapeutic procedures. Whether you are interested in wrinkle treatments or finding relief from certain medical conditions Botox® may work for you.
Includes, but is not limited to:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyebrows (also known as the number “11s” )
- Crows’ feet
- Jaw tension/ TMJ
- Hyperhydrosis (Excessive Sweating)
What Can Nuceiva® Do for Me?
Nuceiva, also nicknamed “NEWTOX,” is the latest in neurotoxins to be approved in Canada (2019) for wrinkle treatments using the same molecule as Botox. Manufactured using Hi-Pure™ Technology, this product was designed exclusively for cosmetic purposes, particularly to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows.
It is marketed in the USA under the name Jeuveau® in case it has popped up in your social media feeds or in Google when you have been searching.
It offers a quick treatment time, and patients most often see results in 3-7 days, lasting 3-4 months.
What Can Dysport® Do For Me?
Dysport® is particularly useful for reducing the appearance of lines between your eyebrows. This effective injectable treats moderate to severe lines rather than mild cases.
It smooths wrinkles and lines without changing the look of the rest of your face or inhibiting movement. The results of Dysport® are natural looking and have a high rate of satisfaction.
Dysport® injections take very little time and you’ll start seeing a difference after a couple of days. Results last up to 5 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on the type of neurotoxin used patients see results within 3-14 days.
None of these treatments are permanent. Neurotoxins get metabolized by the body after 3 months. You will require a re-treatment of neurotoxin every 3-4 months to keep you looking refreshed and wrinkle-free.
