LunaSol Med Spa
Xeomin, & Jeuveau
While for years the facelift was among the only treatments for ailing, sagging and wrinkled skin, today’s client seeks a more elegant solution to aging. BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeuveau are among the world’s most popular and time-tested injectables for reversing age-related fine lines, wrinkles, creases, furrows and folds that mar the appearance and sabotage one’s self-esteem. These safe, non-invasive compounds work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for our most frequent facial contractions, such as smiling, squinting, frowning or yawning. The result is beautiful, smooth skin that glows with youthful radiance. You can come to our med spa for a unique personalized neuromodulator treatment!

While you may think that all, neuromodulators (BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin & Jeauveau) are virtually identical, they each have their own recommended applications and benefits. They are indeed all used to smooth out expression lines and wrinkles on the face, but their composition and behavior warrant use on different areas. BOTOX has been FDA-approved for many years, while Dysport has been widely in use in Europe but was not FDA-approved for use in the United States until 2009. There is, however, a third option that sometimes flies under the injection radar, Xeomin, which is approved to treat wrinkles like the "11" lines between the brows and frown lines. Jeuveau, also called Newtox, is a new version of the same active ingredient used in original Botox and was approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles in February 2019. All treatments are offered by LunaSol Med Spa in Wake Forest, NC, and our highly trained medical providers can help you determine which injectable will produce the most beautiful results for you.
Before & After Gallery >>
The eternal dream of man to remain young and beautiful forever has always been a motivating factor towards innovation and experimentation. This dream has been responsible for the increasing popularity of cosmetic surgery, leading to the sudden influx in the use of Botox®. Although the results are temporary, Botox®.treatments have gained popularity all over the U.S. and throughout the world because of the simplicity of the procedure and fast immediate results.
Frown lines are caused by overactive muscles in the face. Botox® Cosmetic is intramuscular, blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. Botox® is used extensively for getting rid of expression lines in foreheads, furrows between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. It produces real, noticeable results with no surgery and no recovery time.
The full effects of Botox® injections can be seen within 5 to 7 days. The results last from three to six months after which most patients gradually return to their former state.
Like Botox®, Dysport® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A, and it is also effective for frown lines and brow furrows.
Dysport® works within one to two days. In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving the Dysport® treatment. This rapid response could be the deciding factor for a woman or man looking to improve their appearance before a big social event or meeting.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxin, line Xeomin are medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions and so frown lines soften. Xeomin is an injectable that's said to be similar to Botox. The filler helps decrease frown lines between the eyebrows by blocking the transmission of nerves to the muscles in that area.
There's help for moderate to severe glabellar lines. Those pesky little wrinkles between your eyebrows that won't go away-aka frown lines.
Hello, Jeuveau, our new injectable treatment that temporarily improves the look of those frown lines. Jeuveau is the first product of its kind dedicated exclusively to aesthetics. Jeuveau has shown to improve those frown lines in an average of 3 treatments over the course of 1 year.
HOW IS JEUVEAU DIFFERENT THAN BOTOX®?
Like BOTOX®, Jeuveau is used to temporarily paralyze the underlying facial muscles in the face, creating a smoother look and alleviating frown lines, and results last approximately three months. Jeuveau offers several advantages and is quickly becoming the most requested neurotoxin.
As with BOTOX®, Jeuveau requires upkeep in order for the results to last long-term. Jeuveau may be a great alternative to many people who want to retain a more youthful look or ward off the development of lines and wrinkles.
Pre/Post Treatment Information
(BOTOX, DYSPORT, XEOMIN & JEUVEAU)
In order to minimize the risk of possible side effects and complications of injections please follow these simple steps:
Pre-Treatment Instructions for Injectables
Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, ibuprofen, Aleve, aspirin and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
Schedule your filler and neuromodulator (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau) appointments at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the filler and neuromodulator injections may take approximately 4 to 7 days to begin to appear. Also, bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period.
Please reschedule your appointment with us at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish in the area.
If you have a history of cold sores please let your provider know, they may prescribe an anti-viral medication prior to treatment.
Be sure to eat and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Post-Treatment for Neuromodulators
1. Please do not manipulate or massage the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Delay receiving facial or laser treatments after injections for at least 10 days. Ask your provider if you are not sure about the time frame of certain services
2. Recent studies have shown that moving treated muscles for 10-15 minutes immediately after neuromodulator treatments may speed the onset of effect.
3. Keep your head higher than your heart for 4 hours after your treatment. This will prevent the medications used from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.
4. Depending on the medication used, dosing, and your body chemistry, results may begin to be seen in 4-7 days. Full effect should be seen 2 weeks after your treatment . Please keep your follow up appointment to assess to see if a touch up or adjustment needs to be made. You are charged for the amount of product used and will be charged for any used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.
Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 12 hours after treatment. Excessive heat generated may cause breakdown of the medication.
Post-Treatment Instructions Dermal Filler
Avoid significant movement or massage of the treated area, unless instructed by your provider.
Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
Avoid extensive sun or heat for 72 hours.
Avoid consuming excess amounts of alcohol or salts to avoid excess swelling.
If you have swelling you may apply a cool compress for 15 minutes each hour.
Use Tylenol for discomfort.
Try to sleep face up and slightly elevated if you experience swelling.
Take Arnica to help the bruising and swelling, starting at least 2 days prior to injections.

How do I move forward with the treatment?
If you are interested in learning more about BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau the first step is to schedule a private consultation with one of our top aestheticians in the comfort of our LunaSol office suites. During this session, your provider will examine your skin, review your medical history, answer your questions and work to fashion a customized treatment plan that will address your unique needs and desires.
Sometimes the aesthetician will suggest other dermal fillers that work in tandem with BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau to give you more comprehensive, age-defying results. We work together to maximize your outcome. In some cases, the combination of fillers may actually be even more effective to achieve your desired look.
The consultation is also a great opportunity to review our vast library of before and after photographs, so that you can anticipate the changes that are possible with your treatment.
