Procedures offered at our clinic in Spokane: facelift, deep plane facelift,….
When signs of aging start to become apparent on the face, it’s common for people to look for over-the-counter solutions, such as anti-aging serums, lotions, and creams. Sometimes, these will be effective for some time, but patients usually find themselves hoping for more impressive improvements.
One option is facelift surgery, but it’s not ideal for every person. Busy people may not want to deal with an invasive procedure with a long recovery time. Instead, they want something convenient, painless, and effective.
Dysport and Jeuveau are known as neuromodulators. These injectables are an effective way to wipe away creases, lines, and wrinkles that might make you look older and more tired than you feel on the inside. At Sand Plastic Surgery of Spokane, we deliver the results you want. Our procedures can minimize aesthetic flaws while highlighting your natural beauty.
Both of these products are neuromodulators, which means they are created using botulinum toxin. The way they work is by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles that tell them to contract when you frown, squint, cry, laugh, or smile. By making these small facial muscles inactive, it creates smooth skin and a more youthful and softer complexion.
When you choose neuromodulator injections like Jeuveau or Dysport, the process takes only around 20 minutes to complete. Before the injections are done, you’ll have your skin numbed with a topical anesthetic. This ensures the procedure is painless and comfortable. After treatment, results last from three to six months.
Dysport is an injectable that is often used as an alternative treatment for patients who have become resistant to BOTOX. The main difference between the two is that Dysport uses abobutulinumtoxinA instead of onabotulinumtoxinA. Both of these substances work in much the same way. They can temporarily paralyze the small facial muscles that create wrinkles. Changes with BOTOX may last longer, while Dysport often has quicker visible results.
Jeuveau uses the botulinum toxin type A which is very similar in action to Dysport and BOTOX. It also helps block nerve signals from telling your facial muscles to contract. It’s a highly cost-effective injectable that has gained popularity due to being more affordable than BOTOX.
The primary difference between Jeuveau and BOTOX is that Jeuveau has only been approved for cosmetic uses, such as smoothing away fine lines and fighting wrinkles. On the other hand, BOTOX has several medical uses, such as treating TMJ and migraines and easing the excessive sweating associated with hyperhidrosis.
Curious about the benefits of neuromodulators compared to surgery? There are several of them. Below are the benefits associated with choosing these types of injectables:
If you’ve had BOTOX cosmetic treatments but the results are no longer excellent, Dysport and Jeuveau are alternatives. Many people find that BOTOX works well during initial treatments but the body builds up resistance over time. If you’re one of these patients, Jeuveau or Dysport are excellent alternative treatments that can create the same age-fighting results as BOTOX.
Not sure if you’re a good candidate for Jeuveau or Dysport? All you need to do is set up a private consultation with the team at Sand Plastic Surgery of Spokane. We can determine if this is the right solution for your anti-aging desires.
There are a few requirements to be aware of if you are looking to try Jeuveau or Dysport. First, you need to be both physically and mentally healthy. Second, you should be a nonsmoker. Finally, those who get these injections should have a realistic attitude toward the outcomes they can expect.
Similar to BOTOX, Dysport and Jeuveau are noninvasive and do not require downtime. Instead, you can go back to your typical activities immediately. Bruising, tenderness, itching, and swelling may occur at injection sites but will resolve in a few hours or by the next day. Most people do not consider these side effects serious enough to interfere with their daily life.
