How Does Jeuveau® Differ from Dysport®?

Featured Image

When it comes to the most widely used cosmetic treatments available today, injectable wrinkle relaxers are near (if not at) the top of the list. While BOTOX® is a well-known wrinkle relaxer – and perhaps the most popular – there are a number of other products that are gaining popularity. At JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson is committed to staying up-to-date on the most current and effective cosmetic products on the market and proudly offers a complete range of injectable wrinkle relaxers, including BOTOX and others. Here, you’ll find a helpful guide on the difference between Dysport and Jeuveau, two popular BOTOX alternatives.

How do wrinkle relaxers work?

Many injectable wrinkle relaxers contain a purified form of botulinum toxin. When injected into certain facial muscles, the product reacts with the muscle’s neuroreceptors and forces temporary paralysis. As a result, dynamic lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface – meaning those associated with facial expressions and muscle movements – are forced to relax and appear smoother. Some of the most common dynamic lines that can be treated with injectable wrinkle relaxers include:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Glabellar lines
  • 11 lines
  • Angry forehead wrinkles

Which wrinkle relaxer should I get?

Many patients are surprised to find that BOTOX is not their only option for smoothing out dynamic wrinkles. Two other options, Jeuveau and Dysport, are becoming increasingly popular for patients looking to restore a more youthful appearance.

What’s the difference between Dysport vs. Jeuveau?

Dysport and Jeuveau each contain different strains of botulinum toxin and are formulated in different countries. However, their efficacy is virtually the same. For many patients, the most compelling difference between Jeuveau and Dysport is the price, with Jeuveau sometimes offering a more economical option without sacrificing safety or results.

Both Dysport and Jeuveau are reported by many patients to last slightly longer than BOTOX, though this can vary from person to person. On average, Dysport and Jeuveau can provide up to 4 – 5 months’ worth of results, while BOTOX typically needs to be reinjected every 3 – 4 months for a consistently smooth look.

Can I get wrinkle relaxers and fillers at the same time?

Absolutely. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like Jeuveau and Dysport, serve a different purpose compared with injectable dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. Rather than targeting expressive lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are designed to address static lines and wrinkles. Static lines are those related to aging and volume loss, and static wrinkles do not come and go with facial expressions in the same way that dynamic lines do. Examples of static facial lines include nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dermal fillers can also help to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks and under the eyes and plump up naturally thin features, like the lips.
