As we age, we begin to lose the volume and elasticity in our skin, which can cause us to look tired, stressed, and older than we actually are. Thankfully, there are a number of nonsurgical options available to help fight back against the signs of aging. At You-Nique in Pineville, NC, we offer a variety of neuromodulators, including BOTOX®, Dysport, and Jeuveau® to keep our patients looking their best.


These medications are designed to relax the muscles that cause signs of aging. This helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and other types of wrinkles. If you’re looking for an effective way to turn back the clock without surgery, be sure to schedule a consultation to see if any of these treatments is right for you. During your consultation, we will assess your individual needs and goals. We will also discuss your medical history and any potential allergies or side effects that you may be experiencing. Based on the results of your assessment, we will then recommend either Dysport, Botox, or Jeuveau®.


Understand the Difference

While all three medications are effective, they each have their own unique properties. For instance, Dysport works well for treating the lines between your eyebrows, while Botox is better suited for crow’s feet and forehead lines. Jeuveau®, on the other hand, is a newer product that has been shown to be particularly effective in reducing different types of wrinkles. Our doctor will help you choose the right product to help you achieve your desired results.


Since its first FDA approval in 1989, Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. The active ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, a substance that temporarily relaxes muscle contractions. This makes it an ideal treatment for reducing the appearance of three signs of aging: glabellar lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Most Botox treatments take just a few minutes to complete, and the results can last for up to four months. In general, patients will need to return for additional treatments every three to six months to maintain their results. However, some people may find that they need to return more frequently, while others may only need occasional touch-ups.


Dysport is a botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, which makes it easier to spread and helps to prevent unwelcome side effects such as drooping eyelids. Additionally, Dysport is considered particularly successful in treating moderate to severe glabellar lines, which are the lines that form vertically between your eyebrows as you age. These lines are caused by repetitive muscle contractions, sun damage, and genetics. Treatment involves the injection of the product into the muscle groups that cause the glabellar lines. The process takes about 10-30 minutes per session, and most people need a few sessions for optimal results. Two of the advantages of Dysport are that no anesthesia is required and there is no downtime. This makes it an ideal option for busy people who want to improve their appearance without having to take time off from their busy schedules.


Although Jeuveau® is a relatively new injectable medication on the market, it has already gained popularity for its long-lasting results. Also known as “Newtox,” this medication uses a more purified botulinum toxin than other injectables, which allows it to last 5-6 months. Patients typically see results within 3-5 days after injection, and Jeuveau® can be used to smooth away frown lines, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as give a subtle lift to the eyebrows. Whether you’re looking for a change from your current injectable or you’re just starting out with this type of treatment, Jeuveau® is definitely worth considering.

Most people require 2-4 sessions spread over a period of several months. However, some people may need more frequent treatments depending on factors such as their metabolism. The toxin can be metabolized faster in some people, making the effects of the injection wear off more quickly. In addition, certain facial muscles may require more treatment than others. We will be able to assess your individual needs and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. With regular treatments, you can enjoy long-lasting results that help you look your best for months.

In general, good candidates for these medications are healthy adults who have realistic expectations about the results of treatment. Treatment is not recommended for people who have active skin infections or conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. People who are taking medication for muscle spasms may also not be ideal candidates.
