Botox® is the only FDA-approved prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is used to temporarily reduce the look of both moderate to severe lines on the face. Most commonly treated areas include the crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead furrows.

Why to Consider a Botox® treatment

  • Subtly smooth the vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
  • “Crow’s Feet”, the small wrinkles around your eyes.
  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.

What is the General Procedure

Botox® works by blocking impulses from the nerve to the facial muscle, thereby relaxing the facial muscles. As the facial muscles relax the skin begins to smooth out. The Botox® treatment will last approximately three to five months. The patient then can elect to repeat the procedure.

What is Jeuveau

JeuveauTM (onabotulinumtoxinA-vfs) by Evolus has been approved by the FDA for temporary improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults. It is safe and effective. This new product from evolvusTM is available at Arizona Dermatology Group now.

This new entry in the improvement of your vertical lines between your eyebrows is a longer-lasting competitor to Botox. The clinical studies show that people still had growth at 150 days, so to keep your treatment up it is only needed 3 times a year vs botox at 4 times per year.

#Newtox is the social media tag that is being used to promote the new JeuveauTM product. Botulinum Type A by Botox, a product by Allergan, is the leading nonsurgical procedure performed in the United States.
