Hello, smooth forehead and goodbye wrinkly eyes! Botox and Dysport are both great treatment options to treat and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial furrows. Results last about 3-4 months.
*Please do not schedule any facial services within 2 weeks after receiving this treatment.
Botox and Dysport are types of neurotoxins used to block muscle contractions. Both injections treat spasms from neurological disorders and other medical conditions. Now they are widely used as facial wrinkle treatments.
These neurotoxins are most often used to instantly correct moderate to severe wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, and crows feet around the eyes. Botox/Dysport injections are completely non-surgical and cause minimal discomfort. The injection takes about ten minutes. The effects of Botox/Dysport last from 3-4 months. Skincare specialists may adjust the number of units injected to give you the absolute best results.
Pre-care includes avoiding the use of aspirin, NSAIDs, Ginko Biloba, Green Tea, or vitamins A and E for up to one-week pre-injections. These products often increase the risk of bruising. Also, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages 24 hours before your treatment.
There is minimal downtime. You may see small bumps immediately following injections, but these will resolve in a few hours.
There could be some product migration to other muscles and minor discomfort during the injections. However, Botox and Dysport are safe, FDA approved, and the risks are rare.
Exercise your treated muscles for about 1-2 hours after treatment by frowning, raising your eyebrows, and squinting. These actions work the product into your muscles.
Stay in a vertical position for up to four hours following injections. Do not rest your head or lie down. You can use ice, take Tylenol, but avoid massaging the treated areas after treatment.
Expect your Botox/Dysport treatment to take full effect between several days after injections to about two weeks after treatment. The average is about 3-7 days.
The full effect means the time when you see maximum relaxation of the muscles groups treated, and two weeks is the maximum time for smoothing of the lines and wrinkles.
