BOTOX® has led the cosmetic injectable industry for many years as the most popular non-surgical treatment available. But, as the industry innovates, there are more BOTOX® alternatives available than ever. If you’re considering your options, then it can feel overwhelming knowing which one is best for you. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we believe in having choices, and we offer some of the leading neurotoxins on the market. Here’s what to know about them, their differences, and which one is best for you.

What Are Neurotoxins?

Sometimes called neuromodulators, these injectable treatments are made with different forms of botulinum toxin type A, a bacteria that can effectively block chemical movement signals in the muscles. This process is beneficial for cosmetic treatment because it can relax furrows in areas like the brow that tend to hold on to tension. It can also smooth dynamic wrinkles that are the result of facial expressions over time. Finally, it can also prevent the further formation of aging signs if used early enough. These options are very safe when administered by an experienced injector and are some of the best ways to achieve a more refreshed look without surgery or downtime.

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®?

BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau® are simply different brands of the same treatment. There are, however, minor differences that may mean one option is better for your goals than the other. For example, many people prefer BOTOX® for its reliable results and decades-long reputation. Others prefer Dysport® because it has a more concentrated formulation and can produce results slightly longer than BOTOX®. And still others prefer Jeuveau® for its lower cost and can produce results slightly faster than BOTOX®. The best way to pick the right option for you is by discussing your goals with an experienced injector who can recommend your best options.

What Can I Expect From My Treatment?

Since neurotoxins are only temporary, you should plan on returning for re-treatment every 3-4 months. This might seem daunting, but keep in mind that treatment sessions only take about 15 minutes and require no downtime or recovery. Patients tolerate the injection process without any anesthetic, meaning you can easily fit your neurotoxin treatments in your busy schedule. Afterward, you can expect some redness and sensitivity at the injection sites, but this subsides within a day. You’ll be given detailed instructions to follow afterward, so make sure to follow them for best results. It can take up to two weeks for your full results to settle in, after which you’ll see a noticeably more refreshed and rejuvenated look.

Increasingly, patients are choosing non-invasive cosmetic treatments over surgery. Dermal fillers are growing in popularity, as they can treat signs of aging such as wrinkles and lost volume without the long recovery periods associated with plastic surgery. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to augment the lips, nose, or earlobes. 

At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer a variety of dermal fillers including Restylane® and Versa. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about dermal fillers. 

How Do Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are typically made using hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that naturally occurs in the body and gives skin a plump appearance. Fillers are injected into the skin to increase fullness and regain a plump appearance. They can be used to build volume or to “fill in” wrinkles. 

How Long Do Fillers Last?

The ingredients in dermal fillers are eventually broken down by the body, then safely and naturally flushed away. The results of filler injections are not permanent, but the duration varies between individual products. Some dermal fillers break down within six months, while others last up to two years.

Do Dermal Filler Injections Hurt?

Dermal fillers can be slightly uncomfortable, but topical anesthetic is typically applied to the treatment area to relieve pain from injections. Some brands of dermal filler products have anesthetic included in their formulas as well.

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX®/Dysport® and Dermal Filler?

BOTOX® or Dysport® and dermal fillers can be used to minimize wrinkles, but they work in different ways. BOTOX® or Dysport® temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles, so wrinkles can’t form or worsen as the patient makes facial expressions. Dermal fillers, however, plump the area they are injected into, effectively “filling in” the wrinkle. The Laser Skin & Wellness team will determine which injectable is best for you during a consultation.
