Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau
Conveniently Located to Serve Dublin, OH
You can’t avoid the early signs of aging forever. At some point in time, your youthful features will eventually give way to fine lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, there’s a way to fight back. Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Jeuveau are neuromodulators (botulinum toxins) that were developed to treat the signs of aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles. These cosmetic treatments are essentially painless and a safe, effective way of treating aging skin.
How Do Neuromodulators Work?
Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by putting a pause on muscle movement. The formula works by blocking signals to the nerves that direct muscles to contract. Without receiving these nerve signals, these overworked facial muscles can relax back to their at-rest state.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau?
Common areas for injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. We also commonly treat neck bands, masseter muscles, and downward turned corners of the mouth. Neuromodulators have proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and are capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
Differences Between Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau
Generally, the differences between Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are unimportant; any of these three neuromodulators makes an excellent choice for fine line reduction.
While some of these injectables are only FDA-approved for use on certain wrinkles, each neuromodulator’s off-label wrinkle-reduction uses have been seen to be consistently safe and effective.
Since each neuromodulator contains slightly different ingredients, allergies can play a role in determining which option is best for each patient.
Reasons for Considering a Treatment
Neuromodulators have become incredibly popular due to their ability to provide stunning results without the need for invasive surgery. They can help effectively treat:
- Large wrinkles or furrows on your forehead
- Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes
- A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows
- To decrease the width of the face and make it less square and more round.
- Vertical and/or horizontal bands of the neck
- Downward-turned corners of the mouth
- Bunny lines of the nose
- To lift the eyebrows non surgically
- Enlarged pores
Botulinum toxin works by relaxing the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. Typically, a minimal volume of product is injected with fine needles into the area near the wrinkles. Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau work by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles. The result, which is seen after 2-7 days, is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects provided by these treatments will last approximately three to four months.
Are you a Candidate for Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that most people would make good candidates for. These injectables are great options if you desire smoother, more youthful skin without having to go through the hassles of invasive surgery. If you are in good physical health and have realistic expectations about the possibilities of the treatment, then you will make a good candidate for neuromodulators.

Had been thinking about Botox but was nervous about needles, pain and looking “frozen”. Didn’t really think I needed it- until I saw a picture of myself! Decided if I was going to do it, I was going to a Facial Surgeon to discuss my fears. Dr. Bapna was wonderful to work with. Walked me through everything, calmed me down and now, not only do I wish I had done it sooner, don’t know what I was so wigged out. No pain! I’ve since done a few other things and look great, if I so say so myself. Dr. Bapna has magic hands.
Preparing for Your Injectable Treatment
In preparation for the procedure, we recommend avoiding NSAIDs, Aspirin, and any other blood-thinning medications and supplements for 5-7 days prior to the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Exercise can be resumed 4 hours after the procedure. It is advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
Are Neuromodulator Injections Painful?
Before a Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau treatment, topical or local anesthesia may be applied to the targeted area. This will prevent any pain during the injection process. Slight tenderness may be felt after the injections for a short time.
When Can Results Be Seen?
Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau results can be seen in a matter of days. The full benefits should generally be visible in around 10 to 14 days after the treatment.
The effects of neuromodulators typically last for three to four months. Patients can come in for maintenance treatments once the results begin to fade.
How Much do Injectable Treatments Cost?
The price of injectable treatments varies from patient to patient depending on the current condition of the skin and the desired end result. During a consultation, we’ll analyze the quality of your skin and talk to you about your aesthetic goals to determine the best treatment plan for you. At this time, we’ll discuss the cost of your injectable treatment as well.
