Affordable Injectable Treatments
BOTOX® Cosmetic St. Louis
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau (#Newtox) are three FDA-approved treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in targeted areas of the face by immobilizing the underlying muscles. When administered by an experienced professional, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are extremely safe and produce results within a few days of treatment. At The Lifestyle Center, Dr. Richard Moore provides affordable Dysport®, Jeuveau, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for patients in St. Louis and Ladue. Contact us today to learn more.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport®/Jeuveau?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from a toxin that is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Health professionals administer small doses of this botulinum toxin product in order to treat a variety of health problems such as wrinkles, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, overactive bladder, and more. Typically injected in the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial areas, BOTOX® Cosmetic treats wrinkles, can prevent fine wrinkles, and works to stop previously existing lines from deepening. These injections use very fine needles, so any pain you may experience is minimal.
Also known as abobotulinumtoxinA, Dysport® improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, glabellar lines, and crow’s feet. Patients who opt for Dypsort® report a diminished appearance of wrinkles and a softer appearance. Jeuveau, also called Newtox, is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A that gives patients impressive results. These three treatments are similar to one another, but they all share a few key differences, which we will discuss below.
IS BOTOX® Cosmetic/Jeuveau/Dysport® Right for You?
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau, and Dysport® can dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles that result from the contractions of the underlying muscles. They are commonly used to treat:
- Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (also known as glabellar frown lines).
- Crow's feet (fine lines and creases that appear on the outer edge of the eyes when smiling).
- Forehead lines (the furrows that appear on your forehead when you raise your eyebrows).
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau (#Newtox) are derived from the same source. However, there are key differences among these three injectables. Dysport® contains a slightly smaller protein, allowing it to spread out from the injection site an average of 3 centimeters. BOTOX® Cosmetic has a larger protein and spreads an average of 1 centimeter from the injection site. Due to the greater spread of Dysport®, the end result is a softer, less frozen appearance. Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® last for approximately 3 to 4 months.
Jeuveau, the next generation of neuromodulators, is an all-new premium beauty product that also improves moderate to severe frown lines. Much like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, it is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A and produces dramatic results. Jeuveau differs from BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® as it undergoes an advanced purification and drying process. While a premium product, this new generation neuromodulator is priced competitively with BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®. We can help determine which of these treatments is right for your aesthetic needs!
What to Expect from BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau
As with all of our skin care and anti aging treatments, you will meet with Dr. Moore before undergoing treatment. During this initial consultation, we will discuss a number of factors, including your goals for treatment, any pre-existing medical conditions, and other therapies, such as Venus Freeze or an IPL, which might complement a BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau, or Dysport® session.
When you come in for your BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau, or Dysport® appointment, you can expect either Dr. Moore or our registered nurse to first ask you to frown and squint. This allows us to pinpoint the areas where an injection will produce the best results. We use an ultra-fine needle to perform the injections, so no localized numbing is necessary. The number of injections you need will depend on the type and severity of the wrinkles being treated. The full effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau, and Dysport® become visible within 10 to 14 days of treatment and last approximately 3 to 4 months.
