Botox, Dysport & Xeomin
BOTOX® is THE household word for treating facial wrinkles. This safe and effective procedure delivers such amazing results that a quick office visit for a treatment can now replace the need for cosmetic surgery.
BOTOX® and its main competitors, Dysport® and Jeuveau®, are equally successful in softening or eliminating facial lines and wrinkles for adults of any age. They are most commonly used for frown lines, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), laugh lines, and forehead lines. Dr. Enzer also has years of experience using BOTOX® and Dysport® to treat fine upper lip lines, chin creases, unsightly neck bands, and even the outer corners of the mouth to turn a frown into a smile.
Dr. Enzer is a leading authority in treating facial wrinkles with BOTOX® and Dysport® and has over 25 years of experience in their medical and cosmetic uses. Dr. Enzer has also lectured extensively on the cosmetic uses of these medications, and has taught hundreds of physicians his techniques on performing the procedure.
Xeomin® was added to the United States market in 2010. The benefit of Xeomin® is that there is less risk of developing a tolerance to the product because it has fewer proteins built up around the molecule. Although not as commonly used as BOTOX® or Dysport®, we offer this product as an option for our patients as well.
The most recent addition in February 2019 to the United States market is Jeauveau®. The FDA greenlit Jeuveau®, the first new neurotoxin approved for aesthetic usage in nearly a decade. Jeuveau® is used to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, technically called the glabellar lines, but often referred to as the “11s.” (Off-label, wrinkle relaxers are also used to treat other areas, like crow’s feet around the eyes, and smile lines.) The most novel thing about Jeuveau® is its unique marketing strategy, targeting younger millennials in a fresher way, with emojis, an app, diverse models, and lots of pink. This product targets the age bracket for “baby botulinum” and preventative measures for 20’s-30’s demographics. The hashtag #NEWTOX is the product’s signature.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure only takes about 10 to 15 minutes and is performed in our office by Dr. Enzer and/or our nurse practitioner, Ashley Wright, FNP.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime for the procedure and no restrictions on your activity. Side effects are uncommon, the most frequent being a bruise especially in the outer corner of the eyes (crow’s feet). About 15% of patients can develop a headache after these treatments. There is always a concern for over-treatment, especially in the forehead area, which results in heavy brows and upper lids.
When will I see my results, and how long will they last?
You can expect to see your results from BOTOX® or Jeuveau® within 7 to 10 days, and the duration of the product’s effect usually lasts between 3 to 4 months. With Dysport®, your results are usually apparent within 3 to 4 days and will last the same amount of time – between 3 to 4 months.
