Your facial muscles are constantly engaging throughout the day. You laugh, you frown, you concentrate, you squint from the sun and do many other daily activities with expression.
When your muscles contract, your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that can become permanently etched on your face.
Frown lines between your eyes can become particularly noticeable at a relatively young age, making you look angry or worried even when you’re not (aka your Resting Face).
By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown, Dysport and Jeuveau can be used to smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
In addition to Botox Cosmetic, Dysport (Galderma product) and Jeuveau (Evolus product) are two other options we offer in our neurotoxin arsenal to combat fine lines and wrinkles.
We use both Dysport and Jeuveau to treat a variety of conditions ranging from most popular, frown lines to axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the armpits).
The answer is not to flex. Dysport and Jeuveau prevent your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. When you disable that motion, you’re appearance is smoother resulting in a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
The famous frown lines (or 11’s as we call them). We inject small amounts of Dysport/Jeuveau directly into the facial muscles underlying the frown lines. It usually takes three to five small, almost painless injections between the eyebrows for an effective treatment. No local anesthetic is required but if you are concerned, your injector can numb the skin over the area before injecting. You can expect treatment to take ~10-15 minutes.
Dysport and Jeuveau injections generally last between 12 and 16 weeks, however many people find after several treatments that they don’t need another one for longer, because they have “unlearned” the habit of frowning or squinting that originally led to the development of these lines. The lasting effect of treatment with Dysport/Jeuveau differs between individuals.
