Botox is a pioneering neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is the most well-known and widely used botulinum toxin type A for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes. Botox temporarily paralyzes muscles, which can smooth wrinkles and treat muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and migraines. Its cosmetic use primarily targets facial wrinkles, including frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Depending on the treatment area, Botox’s effects typically last three to six months.


 Jeuveau, often called “Newtox,” is a relatively recent addition to the botulinum toxin type A family, specifically approved for cosmetic use. It is designed to temporarily enhance the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Jeuveau is marketed as a modern-made neurotoxin manufactured using a proprietary process called Hi-Pure technology. Its duration and effectiveness are comparable to Botox, offering an alternative for those seeking aesthetic improvements.


Dysport is a botulinum toxin type A product that acts as a muscle relaxant and is approved for therapeutic and aesthetic indications. Dysport is primarily used in cosmetics to treat frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look of the rest of your face. It is known for its rapid onset, with some patients seeing improvement in just 2-3 days after treatment. Dysport’s effects can last up to four to six months, making it a competitive choice for individuals looking to reduce facial wrinkles and lines.

Frequently Ask Questions

Good candidates for Neurotoxin treatments like Botox, Jeuveau, and Dysport are adults who wish to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, manage excessive sweating, or treat muscle spasms.

Results from Neurotoxin treatments can be seen as early as 2-3 days after the procedure, with full effects typically becoming apparent within 1-2 weeks. The onset of action may vary depending on the specific product used and the individual’s response to the treatment.

The results of Neurotoxin treatments can last anywhere from three to six months. The duration depends on the area treated, the specific product used, and the individual’s metabolism.

No downtime is usually required after neurotoxin treatments, which allows patients to return to their normal activities immediately. Side effects are mild and can include temporary bruising, swelling at the injection site, or a headache. Serious side effects are rare, including muscle weakness or difficulty breathing if the toxin spreads beyond the treatment area.

Before Neurotoxin treatment, avoid alcohol, blood-thinning medications, and certain supplements to reduce the risk of bruising. After treatment, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 24 hours to prevent the spreading of the toxin. It’s also recommended to stay upright for several hours after the procedure.

During Neurotoxin treatment, small amounts of the product are injected into the targeted muscles using a fine needle. The procedure is quick, usually taking just a few minutes, and is relatively painless, though you may feel a slight pinch. No anesthesia is required, but a topical numbing cream may be applied to the area if needed.
