Our Botox® Beverly Hills procedure is one of our most popular med spa treatments in Beverly Hills, with many patients turning to the injectable product to reduce signs of aging that emerge when they frown, squint, scowl, or smile. Now, similar products like Dysport and Jeuveau are also available. Dr. Ourian is proud to offer the highest quality Botox®, Dysport, and Jeuveau injections with excellent, natural-looking, and beautiful results.
What Are Botox®, Dysport, and Jeuveau? What’s The Difference?
Botox® is the oldest and most widely-known option. Some patients prefer Botox® because it has been in use for the longest, with proven effective results. Dr. Ourian’s signature Beverly Hills Botox injections results typically last about 3-4 months.
Dysport is slightly less potent compared to Botox® due to a smaller molecular weight. However, it is sometimes preferred for treating larger areas, like the forehead, because it diffuses better than other products due to these smaller molecules. Dysport results are also visible quickly after injection—sometimes within 24 hours—though results may not last as long for some patients.
Jeuveau is the newest product of the three, in use since 2019. Jeuveau is more similar to Botox® and is sometimes referred to as “Newtox,” and the results are overall comparable. Jeuveau results typically last 3-6 months.
How Does Botox® Work?
The active ingredient in Botox®, Dysport, and Jeuveau is a purified form of botulinum toxin. This neurotoxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles where the products are injected. When injected by an expert such as Dr. Ourian, Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau soften facial expressions that cause wrinkles.
Who is a Good Candidate for Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau?
Los Angeles Botox patients that have wrinkles or fine lines caused by repetitive movement and facial expressions typically make good candidates for neurotoxin injections. The areas typically treated are:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- “Eleven lines” between the eyebrows
- Frown lines
In addition, injecting neurotoxins prevents wrinkles from worsening due to making repeated facial expressions like frowning, squinting, or smiling. Today’s injection techniques ensure that patients can avoid the “frozen” look of the past and still freely express themselves, however.
Some patients who have certain skin disorders, muscle weakness in the intended treatment area, deep facial scarring, or thicker skin may not be suited to Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau. Patients with signs of aging due to volume loss are also better suited to treatments such as dermal fillers rather than Botox, Dysport, or Jeuveau. Dr. Ourian will evaluate your health, cosmetic goals, and treatment area to determine whether neurotoxin injectables are the best option for you during a complimentary consultation appointment.

Dr. Ourian will first evaluate the treatment area determine the proper injection site. The area will then be sterilized and prepared for injection.

The number of injections will vary depending on your goals for the procedure. Injections are completed very quickly, with appointments lasting no more than about 20-30 minutes.
