Repeated facial movements from our natural expressions will etch lines into facial skin, much like folding a sheet of paper multiple times.  When we are young, the skin will recover; as the years go by, skin elasticity will be lost, and lines tend to remain and contribute to an aging face. Neuromodulators like Botox®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau® are wrinkle-smoothing injectables.   By limiting contraction of facial muscles that cause wrinkling,  the facial skin becomes more smooth and youthful.

Botox® Cosmetic Overview

Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment worldwide.  Originally used to treat muscle spasms, Botox® was then found to be a powerful anti-aging treatment.  Botox® is a well-tested, proven wrinkle resolution procedure with millions of successful treatments since its FDA approval in 2002.

Botox® Cosmetic is the trade name for onabotulinumtoxinA. When we apply it to muscles under the skin in small doses, it softens crow’s feet, horizontal forehead creases, vertical frown lines between the eyes (11 lines), and horizontal “bunny lines” on the upper nose.  It can also be used to elevate the eyebrows, elevate the corners of the lips, smooth lines around the mouth and lips, and improve a gummy smile.   Botox® can be combined with dermal fillers for a “liquid facelift” for more complete total facial rejuvenation. 

Botox® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment, with results becoming noticeable within days and lasting up to six months.  Side-effects are minimal with some swelling or redness around the injection sites.  This resolves within hours to a day.

Jeuveau® Overview

There is an alternative to treat dynamic wrinkles for residents in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Jeuveau® is another FDA-approved neuromodulator.  It is used for the improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.  These results last up to six months as well and provide our patients with another option to treat expression lines and wrinkles.

Xeomin® Overview

Xeomin®, like Botox® and Jeuveau, smooths facial lines and wrinkles.   Xeomin® is known as a naked neurotoxin, which means that it does not contain additives present in other neuromodulators.  This may mean that the tendency to develop resistance to it is less.  Xeomin® is sometimes chosen when Botox® has become less effective over time; however it is excellent as a first time treatment as well.

Choosing the Best for You

Botox®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau are similar cosmetic treatments used to reduce the signs of facial aging.  Double board-certified, Dr. Jonathan Weinrach has extensive experience with neuromodulators and is happy to discuss options when recommending a treatment plan for you.

Neuromodulators work best for dynamic wrinkles and lines.  These are lines that appear when underlying muscles move.  Static wrinkles and lines are present while muscles are at rest.  Along with a good skin care regimen, treatment of dynamic lines early with Botox®, Xeomin®, or Jeaveau may delay formation of static lines in the future.
