There are 5 different neurotoxins on the market, Botox being the most recognized name. At Bella Viságe, we use 2 competitor medications called Dysport, made by Galderma, and Jeuveau, made by Evolus. Why don’t we use Botox? It’s simple really, Dysport and Jeuveau work much quicker and both companies offer better coupons than Botox. All these medications have been extensively researched for safety and effectiveness and are FDA approved to use for smoothing wrinkles in the upper face.
All neurotoxins are made up of the same molecule, Botulinum, and work by relaxing the muscle they are injected into. For example, when the toxin is injected into the frontalis muscles in the forehead, we can accomplish temporary, intended muscle relaxation which results in smoothing out the lines that run horizontally.
