About
Botox® / Dysport® / Nuceiva® / Jeuveau®

At SKN, we use only the highest grade neuromodulators including Botox®, Dysport®, Nuceiva®, and Jeuveau®. Depending on each person’s individual needs, we will carefully choose the best product to maximize results and ensure safety. Neuromodulators work to temporarily block nerve impulses. Blocking these nerve impulses relaxes the muscles making wrinkles and lines less noticeable. These products are most effective when used to treat wrinkles or lines that haven’t taken full form or only appear when you do things like smile, or frown.

Overview

Botox®
Botox® is the brand name of a toxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This highly advanced toxin has been isolated so that small amounts may be injected into the human body for several uses. The most common use of Botox® is to temporarily limit muscle activity that is causing wrinkles.
Dysport®
Much like the more commonly used Botox®, Dysport® is a neuromodulator that limits muscle activity. Dysport® is believed to have a slightly faster onset than Botox®.
Xeomin®
Xeomin® is one of the newest products we use at SKN but it can still be extremely effective. Like the more commonly know Botox®, it works to eliminate wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscle activity. The unique thing about Xeomin® is that it contains no additives.
Nuceiva® / Jeuveau®
Nuceiva® / Jeuveau® is the newest neuromodulator on the Canadian market. It is only used for aesthetic purposes. Studies indicate essentially equivalent results with Botox®. It is commonly referred to as "Newtox" on social media.
