Nuceiva vs Botox: Which is Right For Me?

Are you feeling self conscious about any forehead lines, wrinkles, or folds? Nuceiva is the newest and most advanced wrinkle treatment that can give you an instantly rejuvenated appearance.

Until very recently, patients did not have many options when it came to anti-wrinkle treatments and the three most common products used to smooth out fine lines were Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox, with Botox dominating the market.

But there’s a new kid on the block! Nuceiva is the most recent and advanced anti-wrinkle treatment to be approved by Health Canada, as well as the FDA, and it has been shown to have many benefits, including:

  • Quick and painless treatment
  • It’s more cost-effective than Botox (approximately 25% cheaper)
  • There is no downtime
  • Injections are made in a precise manner that won’t impact the surrounding area

Nuceiva vs Botox: Similarities and Differences

Approved by Health Canada and the FDA, Nuceiva temporarily relaxes specific facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses, just the same way Botox does. Here are some of the similarities and differences between these two anti-wrinkle treatments:

  1. Both wrinkle injections contain the same neurotoxin ingredients. However, Nuceiva is designed and marketed solely for cosmetic treatment.
  2. Nuceiva’s entire focus is combatting the effects of facial ageing, where as Botox is now being prescribed extensively for non-aesthetic medical purposes.
  3. Nucevia can temporarily improve frown lines between your brows or other facial areas, and its efficacy is backed by many years of proven benefits for botulinum toxin injection.
  4. Nuceiva carries the same risks and potential side effects as Botox.
  5. Botox is the most popular wrinkle injection, but Nuceiva is gaining popularity quickly amongst male and female patients of all ages.

Considering Switching From Botox to Nuceiva? Here’s What Will Happen

Because Nuceiva’s formula is like Botox, switching from one to the other is completely fine. Your skin specialist iwl likely advise that you wait for a few months before undergoing any additional treatments and they will use any information from your past procedures to inform your next one.

Things to Note

  • Neuromodulators can behave differently for each client.
  • Though they are similar, you may experience the effects slightly differently, with some lasting longer and others taking effect faster.
  • Patients may prefer the way one product works over another, but switching up is a great idea if your usual treatment isn’t giving you the results you want.
  • Concentration and dosage are slightly different and your skin specialist will explain the expected treatment cost and what results you can expect.

What Will The Nuceiva Treatment Be Like?

One of the biggest benefits of professional anti-wrinkle injection is that you will have very natural results. Soft, selective muscle relaxing with Nuceiva leaves you with as much facial expression as you want.

Here are some other things you can expect:

  • You will have a consultation with your skin specialist that will include a detailed conversation about the effects and risks of Nuceiva.
  • Your session will be fast (10-20 minutes) and you’ll be able to return to your daily activities straight after.
  • Tiny needles are used to administer Nuceiva, which is why you won’t experience any pain or discomfort during the treatment.
  • While no downtime is needed, there are a few restrictions. For example, you may be asked to skip the gym and avoid pressing on the area for at least 24 hours following the treatment.
  • Some of the temporary side effects of Nuceiva include headaches or mild bruising at the treatment site.
