Neurotoxins such as Botox, Dysport, Jeaveau and Xeomin are derived from an amazing serum from the bacterium “Clostridium botulinum” that contains tiny refined amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein. It’s been studied in numerous clinical trials and reviewed in multiple scientific journals and discovered to be safe and extremely effective at temporarily smoothing away wrinkles around the face and neck for three to six months.

Both neurotoxins are comprised of the same ingredient, Botulinum A, used to prevent wrinkles in adults by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin. Once the muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother. The most important factor in having Dysport or Botox injected is the skill of the injector. Dysport, on average, is less expensive than Botox. Typically, Dysport results are visible within 1 to 2 days, while Botox can take up to 5 days, but Botox results typically last a bit longer. However, Dysport injections are about 2 centimeters deeper than Botox injections, so they can encompass a wider treatment area. Some patients who have tried both prefer one neurotoxin over the other for a variety of reasons.
The procedure itself only takes about ten or fifteen minutes to complete. You’ll be able to go back to your daily activities immediately.
Unlike most surgical procedures, Botox is not permanent. Results wear off in 3-6 months, and it’s safe to add more at any time if desired. We always recommend a conservative approach if it’s your first time getting Botox so you can gradually achieve the look you want.
Being injected with a neurotoxin is a completely elective procedure that helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles making you look and feel younger!
Results may vary from patient to patient. Typically the neurotoxins begin smoothing out wrinkles within a few days following treatment. The full effect doesn’t occur until about 7 to 10 days after the procedure. Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau and Xeomin all have slightly different timelines for when they fully take effect.
Botox treatments perform other incredible things besides relaxing wrinkles. The cosmetic drug is popular at halting migraines and calming underarm sweating. It can be injected into the pectoral muscles to give one’s decollete a smoother appearance. The injectable is now popular for those who grind their teeth or to treat TMJ; it shrinks the muscles and jawline when injected along that part of the face and can cleverly tighten the jowls.
Neurotoxins not only treat lines and wrinkles that you already have, it also prevents wrinkles from developing in the future.
If you’ve never tried Dysport, Botox or other injectables, don’t worry, it’s simple, quick and relatively painless. Neurotoxin injections aren’t permanent and wear off over time. We always recommend starting out conservative and then adding more if desired until you have the perfect result.
Minor side effects may include tenderness, swelling, redness, slight numbness or bruising and headache. These conditions do not last long and don’t effect everyone. Once treated patients are able to move about and assume their regular routine. Our master injectors take the time to consult with you and fully understand your goals before making a recommendation.

It’s been 15 years since the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) gave the green light for the first neurotoxin, Botox cosmetic use in the United States. Since that time, Botox and other neurotoxins have only soared in popularity. Millions of vials have been safely administered in the United States since 2002.
Neurotoxins work by relaxing facial expression muscles, especially those around the eyes and brow that are notorious for developing deep wrinkles such as crow’s feet, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles.
I have been coming to Trilogy Medical Center for a long time. Shauna is by far the best injector Trilogy has had! She is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of her job.
Trilogy Medical Spa is hands-down the best med-spa in Utah. I had a membership to another med-spa when I found Trilogy and was extremely loyal to my dermatologist for all of my injecting needs (lips, Botox, etc). There’s just something different about Trilogy…. I’ve had facials, PRP, and injections all done at Trilogy and they’re now my one-stop shop for all of my med-spa needs.
Dr. Kat and the rest of the staff were super friendly, helpful, and professional. The consultation was great and I never felt like anyone was pressuring me to do things I wasn’t comfortable with.
I was thoroughly impressed by the staff the range of services they offer and the passion that Dr. Kat has for women’s health. What a fabulous place to feel better from head to toe!
Injectable neurotoxins such as Dysport, Botox, Xeomin or Jeaveau are superb muscle relaxants and offers quick results with minimal downtime. It is considered a non-invasive dermatological treatment and one that has revolutionized the way women and men maintain a youthful and natural-looking appearance.
If the injectable were not amazing at what it can deliver to foreheads and crow’s feet, for example, then it would have quickly disappeared from the skin care “menu” of med- spas and dermatologists’ and plastic surgeons’ offices around the world.
Neurotoxin treatments are a huge hit, considering approximately 10.9 million vials of the injectables have been sold in the United States since 2002. Not only do A-list stars make visits for the quick anti-aging procedure, but young adults to mature adults with non-celebrity status also are obsessed with the incredible skin care drug that can allow one to look rested, more youthful and five to 10 years younger
The best results from any neurotoxin injection depend on who’s doing the injecting. The experienced and certified staff at Trilogy Medical Center are compassionate to the client and artistic with the fine work they do in halting wrinkles and delivering a more youthful and attractive-looking you. Our injectors are sensitive to the individual needs and expectations of their patients. They take a conservative approach especially for new patients trying injectables for the first time.
