BOTOX / DYSPORT / JEUVEAU

Eliminate The Frown Lines, Forehead Lines And Crow’s Feet At The Youth Fountain

Dr. Shakov accomplishes this primarily through the use of Botox® or Dysport®. Dr. Shakov will inject the appropriate amounts of the medications under the skin to partially and temporarily relax the underlying muscle. That relaxation prevents you from the squinting or scrunching that are the cause of the wrinkles while still allowing you facial expressiveness!

What Is The Difference Between Botox And Dysport and Jeaveau?

Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau® are all made from purified botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) and can be used in almost identical ways

What Can Be Treated With Botox And Dysport and Jeaveau?

  • Crows feet (the area outside the eyes)
  • Glabellar area (the frown lines between your eyebrows)
  • Forehead lines
  • “Bunny” lines (the wrinkles across the top of your nose when you scrunch your face)
  • Crows feet (the area outside the eyes)
  • Lip lines
  • Down-turned smile
  • Gummy Smile (when smiling if the upper gums are overly exposed)
  • Dimpled chin
  • Platysmal bands of the neck

What Happens During A Botox Or Dysport or Jeuveau Treatment?

Like all of our cosmetic treatments, Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau treatments begins with an in-depth assessment of your skin’s current state. Dr. Shakov will assess the degree and depth of the wrinkles in question and work out how many units will be needed to address the issue.

After the assessment is done, we apply a topical anesthetic to lessen the sting from the needle prior to Dr. Shakov injecting the appropriate areas.

How Long Does It Take?

Plan to be with us for an hour, depending on how many areas need to be treated. The actual time for injections is quite fast, but Dr. Shakov likes to ensure that each patient is given a thorough assessment before treatment begins

Does It Hurt?

As with most injections, the sensation is a sharp prick followed by a slight stinging sensation. To lessen this discomfort we apply a topical anestheti

How Long Is The Recovery Time?

Aside from some minor redness and swelling, most patients have no recovery time at all. The Youth Fountain has several patients who come in for Botox or Dysport on their lunch breaks! The effects usually take between 3-10 days.

There is a slight risk of allergic reaction and temporary bruising at the injection site.

No. Botox and Dysport are not to be used by patients with a history of allergic reaction to botulinum toxin products or anyone who has an active skin infection at the proposed injection site

As the effects of Botox and Dysport are temporary, it is recommended that our patients repeat the injections every 3 months. The effects will wear off gradually and naturally, and repeated injections are completely voluntary.
