Both are neuromodulators.
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles!
Cost per unit:
- Nuceiva – $10
- Botox – $12
WHAT IS NUCEIVA?
Nuceiva contains Prabotulinumtoxin A, a safe and effective drug for cosmetic purposes. Nuceiva works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. By relaxing muscles under the skin, Nuceiva prevents certain muscle movements and as a result smooths fine lines and wrinkles.
What’s the difference between Botox & Nuceiva?
Nucevia costs less the Botox brand and therefore is more affordable.
Many clients find that Nucevia starts to work in as little as 2 days, whereas Botox can take up to 2 weeks.
Both wrinkle treatments are neuromodulators. The generic name for Botox is Onabotulinum toxin – The generic name for Nuceiva is Prabotulinum toxin… see the similarity?
Many medications have slight modifications that change their name, but in essence, they are very much the same and it comes down to the brand name. Think Kleenex VS Puffs.
Both work similarly to decrease the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles giving you a more youthful appearance. Nuceiva is a bit more affordable than Botox at Spa Tru and we find our patients enjoy the savings.
Reduce the appearance of Frown Lines
HOW DOES A NEUROMODULATOR WORK?
Neuromodulators target one of the underlying causes of frown lines —the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. One of our Medical Aesthetic Injectors at Spa Tru will inject these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity, in turn, your result is a visible smoothing of your frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. When you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause 11’s AKA frown lines.
Treatment requires almost no downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure because you can go about your normal routine immediately after you leave the clinic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
Derived from sources that exist in nature.
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Spa Tru offers a complimentary consultation for injections, so we make sure you know exactly how it all works.
