Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that prevent muscle contraction causing relaxation of the muscles immediately beneath the skin. This relaxation causes the overlying skin to appear smoother and wrinkle-free.
Why Try Botox?
Botox is approved for treating the smooth part of the forehead above and between the eyebrows called the glabella, as well as crows feet and forehead line. Dysport is approved for treating Glabella lines only.
Glabella lines are especially noticeable when you frown. They become more pronounced with age and collagen loss.
What to Expect after Your Botox or Dysport Treatments?
Both Botox and Dysport injections take just a few minutes and are relatively painless. Your provider will apply an anesthetic solution to the area being treated to reduce any discomfort. You may experience a slight pressure as your skin specialist inserts the fine needle to deliver the Botox or Dysport. After the procedure, you can resume regular activity.
You can expect to see results from Dysport within a couple of days and results last up to four months. Botox takes a little longer to see effects. It is normal to see results in a week, but in some cases, it may take a month for the full effect to develop. Botox treatments can last up to six months.
