A refreshed facial look with BOTOX or Jeuveau

BOTOX and Jeuveau are cosmetic neuromodulators. The active ingredient reaches below the skin’s surface, treating the very muscle activity causing the frown lines and wrinkles to form gradually over time. Dr. Repta or his staff will inject either BOTOX or Jeuveau into the targeted muscles, partially reducing the muscle motions. The result is a diminished appearance of creases and wrinkles.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX is also an excellent preventative treatment for further wrinkles, as it slows down the production of wrinkles. With Dr. Repta’s precise and meticulous approach, you will maintain your natural facial expressions following BOTOX injections—Dr. Repta reduces the activity of targeted muscles that contribute to wrinkles. This does not mean you will have a “frozen” or “surprised” appearance following BOTOX. Dr. Repta and his staff have delivered some of the best BOTOX Scottsdale has to offer, and he looks forward to helping you achieve your cosmetic goals.

BOTOX results & recovery

BOTOX results typically last four to six months. As muscle activity gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to resurface and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less and less over time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

What should I expect?

Occasionally, patients can experience temporary bruising after BOTOX. Some patients have experienced a mild headache after BOTOX treatment, but this is rare. Drooping usually happens when the Botox moves around, so don’t rub the treated area for at least 12 hours after the procedure and avoid exercise and heat for about 24 hours.

BOTOX 101: Everything you ever wanted to know about BOTOX

Botox has quickly become the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in the country. Many of us have experienced Botox before, but if not, we probably know someone who has appreciated the positive effects of this treatment.

So, what is BOTOX, and what does it do? BOTOX is a neurotoxin that is spun down to become a purified protein. It temporarily blocks the receptors that make muscles “fire” or contract, so a softening of lines and wrinkles can occur.

Is Jeuveau a good alternative to BOTOX?

Jeuveau is a newcomer to the aesthetic market and a safe and effective alternative to BOTOX. FDA approved in 2019, Jeuveau is produced by a slightly different method and was developed strictly for the aesthetic market, whereas BOTOX is FDA approved to treat a range of conditions. If BOTOX injections are not producing the smoothing effect they did earlier, Jeuveau is an excellent alternative. 

Cosmetically, BOTOX or Jeuveau are primarily injected into the upper third of the face to diminish wrinkles between the eyes, on the forehead, and around the eyes to smooth crow’s feet. It can also be injected to brighten the area around the eyes by lifting the brows slightly, and when placed around the mouth, it can give the lips a slight lift, adding volume to your pout when injected in small amounts.

There are many medical conditions, too, that BOTOX can successfully treat. TMJ, muscle stiffness, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and chronic migraines are complaints that could be treated with the administration of BOTOX.

The treatment experience: BOTOX and Jeuveau

A BOTOX treatment is quick and straightforward and is typically administered in 15 minutes or less. The needle used to inject the BOTOX is tiny. There is minimal discomfort with the procedure. Everyone’s body is different, but BOTOX usually wears off in about 3 to 4 months, and you will be ready to be treated again. After your injections, it is important to avoid strenuous exercise and be gentle when cleansing your face that night. The next day, though, it is entirely okay to resume your regular activity.

Always be sure to find a physician who is experienced in providing BOTOX treatments to ensure optimal results. Call and schedule your appointment today with Dr. Repta.
