Skinspirations' Wrinkle Relaxants Include Botox, Dysport & Jeuveau
There are now four FDA-approved injectable medications that relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and can lift facial features by relaxing the muscles that otherwise pull them downward. All of the wrinkle relaxant medications are different forms of botulinum toxins, which sounds scary but they're really just proteins that turn off muscle contraction.
Most people are familiar with Botox® Cosmetic, which is not only the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure done in the United States, it's the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. It has also been used safely for a variety of medical conditions including migraine headaches and muscle spasticity.
Dysport™, a similar muscle relaxant, was FDA-approved in the U.S. in 2009 & is considered so safe that it's now approved for spasticity in children. Xeomin is another injectable muscle relaxant.
The newest member of the neuromodulator family is Jeaveau™, which is also very similar to Botox and used for smoothing facial lines.
Injectable muscle relaxants like Botox® are most known for their use in relaxing frown lines, crow's feet and forehead creases but there are many other ways and places they can be used.
Advanced treatment techniques that we provide at Skinspirations with these products include lifting the eyebrows, jawline, and/or corners of the mouth, softening lines on the neck and décolletage, turning out the upper lip, and smoothing a "bumpy" or creased chin. When done by an expert, you'll love the results and no one else will be the wiser.
You can be confident that you're getting the safest, most effective wrinkle reducing treatment at Skinspirations, where we've performed over 15,000 neuromodulator treatments. Our providers teach other doctors and providers both basic and advanced techniques with the muscle relaxants as well as dermal fillers. Skinspirations has been designated a Diamond level practice by the maker of Botox® Cosmetic, meaning that we're one of the busiest Botox providers in the country.
Differences between injectable muscle relaxants - Coke vs Pepsi
All four available cosmetic neuromodulators have similar safety profiles and produce results that last roughly 3-6 months.
Jeuveau, the newest "tox" on the block, appears to work sooner & last longer than Botox, which had been the gold standard wrinkle relaxant for years. With Jeuveau, visible relaxation of the treated lines starts within 2-3 days for many people and the duration sometimes lasts for over 5 months, compared to about 3 months for Botox Cosmetic.
Dysport's effects become evident within 2-5 days versus 4-7 days for the others, its results persist for an average of 3-4 months, and it's thought that Dysport spreads a bit more, which can be a benefit in some areas.
The pricing for the products is similar when comparable doses are used and there are currently rewards programs for Botox® and Dysport™, with one expected any day now for Jeuveau™.

Neuromodulator Dosing and Pricing
Every day Skinspirations receives questions from patients asking about the way injectable muscle relaxants are prepared and priced, and it is confusing until you understand the difference between dilution and dosage (units).
All of the cosmetic neuromodulators like Botox Cosmetic are packaged as freeze-dried powders so they have to be mixed with a liquid in order for them to be injected.
