Botox®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau® are similar injectables that are formulated to smooth lines and wrinkles on the upper areas of the face, including the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). We will help you determine which injectable best suits your needs during your personal consultation.
Dr. Shakov will inject the appropriate amounts of the medication under the skin to partially and temporarily relax the underlying muscle that causes your wrinkles to form.
FDA-approved Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are all made from purified botulinum toxin type A and can be used in almost identical ways.
Like all our cosmetic treatments, Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau treatments begin with an in-depth assessment of your skin. Dr. Shakov will assess the degree and depth of the wrinkles in question to determine how many units will be needed to meet your needs.
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are all well-tolerated treatments. As with most injections, you may experience the feeling of a sharp prick followed by a slight stinging sensation. To lessen this discomfort, we will apply a topical anesthetic as needed to lessen the sting from the needle prior to your injections.
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.
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 on their lunch breaks! The full effects usually take between 3-10 days to develop.
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are priced by the unit, not by the areas of the face you are treating. We will help you determine your cost during your consultation.
