BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport
Chances are that you’ve heard about the benefits of neuromodulators (BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport). With more than 3 million treatments administered last year alone, BOTOX is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Clearly, people all around you are experiencing the benefits of neuromodulator treatment, and perhaps you are wondering if this wrinkle treatment is right for you.
One of the concerns we hear from women interested in BOTOX or Dysport in Dallas and Fort Worth is the fear that the face will appear “frozen” or stiff after treatment. When performed by a certified injector, natural and beautiful results can be achieved. No one should be able to tell that you have had BOTOX, but people will notice that you look rested and refreshed.
When facial muscles contract, the skin wrinkles. As we age, these wrinkles become deeper and more prominent. Neuromodulators can reduce or even eliminate wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles that contract to produce small lines on the face. Both BOTOX and Dysport consist of purified forms of the botulinum toxin, which is safe and effective in very small doses when injected around small muscles.
Treatment will be individualized, but usually involves a small number of injections in the regions to be addressed. Both BOTOX and Dysport are great options for men and women who are beginning to show signs of aging, but are not ready for cosmetic surgery.
Injection of a neuromodulator usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes. First, the skin is cleaned with alcohol, and then a topical anesthetic is applied if desired. Tiny needles are used, so there is very little discomfort, swelling, or redness. Most patients find that they are able to return to work or other normal activities immediately after their injections.
It takes some time for the effects of the neuromodulator treatment to emerge, but most people see results in 5 to 7 days. Effects typically last 3 to 4 months, though the wrinkle reduction effect may last longer, especially if you maintain regular treatments. We schedule patients on specific days to allow timely use of each reconstituted vial of BOTOX and Dysport. Consultations may be scheduled alone or in conjunction with another treatment, such as injectable fillers to help enhance the lips or smooth lines.
