Relax Wrinkle-Causing Muscles with Injectables in New Jersey

Our facial muscles allow us to express ourselves in a huge variety of ways, as well as to accomplish everyday tasks—like squinting in bright light or drinking through a straw—without much thought. Unfortunately, those same facial muscles also cause what are known as dynamic wrinkles to develop over time. Using specialized injectables known as neuromodulators, including Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau, New Jersey’s The Peer Group can prevent wrinkle-forming contractions in those muscles, giving you the best of both worlds: You can still make all of the facial expressions you want, but your face will appear more youthful.

Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau are all FDA approved for treating frown lines, also known as 11’s, which typically appear between the eyebrows when someone is making worried, puzzled, or similar expressions. The group of nonsurgical treatments known as neuromodulators also includes BOTOX®, which is FDA approved for treating frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.

How Do Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau Work?

Although Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau each have some unique characteristics, they are all neuromodulators and work the same basic way. The injectables contain a form of botulinum toxin, which can be safely injected into specific muscles, where it works to halt the flow of signals that trigger contractions via the nervous system.

Even if the brain sends directions to these targeted muscles to contract as part of a routine facial expression, they will remain at rest while the other muscles necessary for the movement contract as expected. Keeping key muscles still as opposed to active allows the surface of the skin to stay smooth instead of pulling into wrinkles and folds.

The effect wears off over time, after which new injections of Dysport®, Xeomin®, or Jeuveau can be made to renew the effects.

Note that Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau are not dermal fillers, which add volume below the skin to smooth out a different type of facial wrinkle or create new facial contours.

Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau Treatment Details

Before deciding on any specific treatment plan, you will meet with one of The Peer Group’s experienced physicians for a consultation. This is when you can share your cosmetic goals and medical history and get answers to questions you have about the available options. Together, you will determine whether Dysport®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau, or a different treatment would best meet your needs.

Treating frown lines requires injections made at five points along the eyebrows. These take only a few minutes to administer. The entire Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau injection process can take less than 15 minutes total.

Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau Recovery and Results

Any injection can cause slight side effects where the needle entered the skin. Some combination of swelling, redness, soreness, sensitivity, and bruising should be expected to develop shortly after the treatment and to fade over the next couple of days. With that in mind, patients are free to return to their typical daily activities as soon as they feel comfortable doing so—even right after their session.

Dysport® results typically begin to appear three or four days after the injections are made, and they can last up to three months.
Xeomin® results develop in the same amount of time, and can also be expected to last for about three months.

Jeuveau is the newest of the most commonly used neuromodulators, with results often developing in two to three days. The effects may last up to three months for some patients.










What Injectables Are Available to Address Other Signs of Facial Aging?

Facial hollows, thinning lips, and creases like nasolabial folds that develop due to volume loss require a strategy other than neuromodulators. The Peer Group offers the Juvéderm®, RHA® Revance, and Restylane® collections for patients who want to address signs of aging apart from dynamic wrinkles.

Fillers can be combined with neuromodulators like Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau to create a balanced and more youthful look, so that the forehead does not appear younger while the cheeks and mid-face still appear aged.
