How Do BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Work?

Botox Cosmetic

Neurotoxins, also called neuromodulators, like BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau, are used to treat wrinkles that are caused by the contractions of facial muscles, which is different from the way dermal fillers restore volume within the skin to fill out wrinkles and folds. When a small amount of neurotoxin is injected into facial muscles, it temporarily suspends their ability to contract and crease the skin. Over time, the wrinkles, creases, and furrows of the face fade away.

What Do BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Treat?

Our BOTOX Cosmetic, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau patients typically desire a subtle yet noticeable improvement in their look but don’t feel that surgery is necessary. This treatment is commonly used to:

DAXXIFY logo
  • Soften the vertical creases between the eyebrows
  • Smooth deep forehead wrinkles
  • Diminish crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes

Other areas that may respond to BOTOX Cosmetic, Jeuveau, and DAXXIFY include wrinkles around the mouth and nose, as well as the neck.

What Else Can BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Be Used For?

Other uses for BOTOX, Jeuveau, and DAXXIFY injections include:

  • Migraines
  • Jawline (masseter) reduction
  • TMJ
  • Excessive underarm sweating

Can BOTOX, Jeuveau, and DAXXIFY Enhance Facial Plastic Surgery Results?

Regular BOTOX, Jeuveau, or DAXXIFY treatments can enhance the results of facial plastic surgery procedures such as facelift and brow lift surgery in a variety of ways, which include:

  • Smoothing out lines not addressed or fully corrected by surgery
  • Rejuvenating the upper face when combined with a facelift
  • Providing a subtle brow lift to complement eyelid surgery
  • Preventing new wrinkles from forming to maintain surgical results

“I have always been curious about Botox but a little apprehensive to try it. However, the experience I had at Koch made me completely change my mind. Pam did a fantastic job of explaining the procedure and making me feel comfortable. I cannot express how happy I am with my results and would recommend Koch to my friends. I will definitely be returning there for further treatments.”

What To Expect During BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Treatments

BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau treatments consist of a simple series of injections performed using a very fine needle. Although most patients do not experience discomfort, if you are concerned, we can numb the areas with ice or anesthetic cream. The procedure usually takes just minutes to complete.

Your specific facial anatomy and the location of lines and wrinkles determine the exact injection sites for your treatment. Typically, treatment for crow’s feet includes 3 injection locations. Treating glabellar lines (“worry lines”) usually includes 5 separate injection sites just above and between the brow.

How Many Units of BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Will I Need?

BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau treatments are based on the number of units injected in each area. Here are the typical number of units for common treatment areas:

  • Forehead lines: 5 to 25 units
  • Glabellar lines: 20 to 25 units
  • Crow’s feet: 5 to 15 units (each side)

What Is BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau Recovery Like?

Neurotoxin treatments typically require little or no downtime, and patients are usually able to resume their normal activities immediately. We do recommend that you avoid putting pressure on treated areas for the remainder of the day.

There is no charge for a comprehensive BOTOX, DAXXIFY, or Jeuveau consultation.

We will listen intently to what you have to say, and together we will develop the best approach to your treatment.

Neuromodulators vs. Dermal Fillers

While both are injectable facial rejuvenation treatments, neuromodulators and dermal fillers have some important differences, including:

Neuromodulators

  • Smooth out lines caused by facial muscle contractions
  • Treat other concerns, such as migraine headaches and excessive sweating
  • Results begin in 2 to 5 days and continue to improve for up to 2 weeks
  • Last 3 to 4 months

Dermal Fillers

  • Add and restore volume within the skin to smooth out facial folds, restore volume around the eyes and on the cheeks
  • Reshape facial features such as the nose, lips, and jawline
  • Provide immediate results
  • Last 6 months to 2 years, depending on the filler and treatment area

BOTOX, DAXXIFY, & Jeuveau FAQ

Are BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau safe?

Yes. BOTOX was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002. Jeuveau, also called #NEWTOX, attained FDA approval in 2019. It is the first alternative to BOTOX to be released in the U.S. in 10 years. DAXXIFY is the newest neuromodulator designed to treat frown lines. It is a vegan product that has been shown to last up to 6 months, twice as long as other neuromodulators. When administered by a trained, experienced professional, these treatments are very safe and have a low risk of complications for most people.

What is the difference between BOTOX, DAXXIFY, and Jeuveau?

BOTOX and Jeuveau are both purified botulinum toxin products that temporarily correct dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX has medical uses as well. Jeuveau was developed exclusively for cosmetic use. Its state-of-the-art manufacturing process may make it more potent and cost-effective than other neurotoxins. DAXXIFY is a neuromodulator powered by peptides, not derived from human blood products, making is a vegan product that enables it to last up to twice as long as other injectable frown line treatments. During your consultation, your practitioner will recommend the injectable best suited to your desired improvements, whether it’s BOTOX, Jeuveau, DAXXIFY, dermal fillers, or a combination of treatments.

Do BOTOX, Jeuveau, and DAXXIFY work as a preventative?

They can. When people in their late 20s to early 30s begin BOTOX, Jeuveau, or DAXXIFY treatments before lines and creases have a chance to develop or become significant, they can hold off these common signs of aging seen in people in their late 30s and up. This option typically isn’t costly because we use less product per treatment and space treatments farther apart than when addressing actual wrinkles.

What’s the best age to start BOTOX, Jeuveau, or DAXXIFY treatments?

The best age to start BOTOX, Jeuveau, or DAXXIFY treatments depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming, you can have your first treatment as a young adult. Learn more about the benefits of proactive BOTOX in this blog post. There really isn’t an upper age limit if you want to look refreshed or more youthful; however, deeper lines and widespread wrinkles may require a laser treatment or cosmetic surgery.

When will I see results?

Following a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic, patients can expect to see results in 3 to 5 days, with improvements continuing for up to 2 weeks. Results from Jeuveau injections may appear as early as 2 to 3 days and continue to improve for about 7 to 10 days.  Results from DAXXIFY typically appear within 2-3 days following treatment and last 6 months on average.

How long will my results last?

Most BOTOX and Jeuveau patients retain their refreshed, rejuvenated appearance for 3 to 4 months. With regular maintenance treatments, results may last up to 6 months. DAXXIFY results typically last up to 6 months, requiring less maintenance for longer results.
