If you want to take years off your face, you may be looking into neurotoxins. They can temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help you feel more confident in your own skin. Since there are several different types of neurotoxins you can choose from, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with all the options so you can make an informed decision.
Types of Neurotoxins
Botox is the most popular neurotoxin because it’s been around ever since it got approved by the FDA in 2002. It can treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows as well as crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. By undergoing Botox treatments, you can enjoy long-lasting results for up to 4 months without any pain or downtime.
If your goal is fast results, you can’t go wrong with Dysport because it can leave you with a noticeably younger face in only 1 to 2 days. It’s important to note that even though it works faster, it lasts up to 4 months, just like Botox. It offers a high spreadability so it’s a great option if you have a variety of concerns over a large area.
Since Xeomin contains absolutely no additives, we like to call it a “naked injectable.” It only has one ingredient, botulinum toxin type A. If you’ve tried Botox in the past and are no longer benefiting from it, you may want to try Xeomin. Its results are gradual and also last for 3 to 4 months.
Also known as #Newtox, Jeuveau is our newest neurotoxin as it was recently approved by the FDA earlier this year. It is a great alternative to Botox and the first injectable that is only used for aesthetic purposes. Jeuveau may even provide longer results that last for up to 6 months.
While our neurotoxins have the same goal of helping you look younger by reducing your lines and wrinkles, they each have their own unique characteristics. Therefore, it’s a good idea to understand all of your options before making a decision.
