BOTOX® and Dysport®

We all must face the continuance of time, but we do not have to exhibit the decades of exposure to the elements that often plagues us as the years pass. When we look good on the outside, it is easier to feel good inside and with our minimally invasive, effective aesthetic treatments, it is possible to regain the external beauty of our youth to some degree. We are not in the business of frozen faces and duck lips, rather a more natural and refreshed look is preferred.

With Botox® and Dysport® we can smooth out the lines caused by years of sun exposure, frowning, squinting, laughing, and deep thinking! There is no downtime, limited risk, and beautiful results that give you a refreshed, rested, and rejuvenated appearance. No one will even know that you had it, you will look so natural, but you will receive compliments on how rejuvenated you look!

BOTOX ® and Dysport® are ideal solutions for individuals aged 18-65 looking for a safe, non-surgical approach to the reduction in the appearance of facial wrinkles. The facial areas typically treated include horizontal forehead lines, frown lines in between the brows, crow’s feet, and bunny lines on the bridge of the nose. In addition, a spa brow lift can be done to gently increase the brow arches.

A Little History

BOTOX® was approved for cosmetic use in 2002, but research actually began in the 1950s when Dr. Vernon Brooks discovered the potential muscle “relaxing” effects. For over 2 decades now it has been researched and utilized in a number of treatment modalities including cervical dystonia (severe neck spasms), hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), migraines, TMJ, overactive bladder, crossed-eyes, and may even be beneficial in treating depression!

How is Botox performed?

A very small needle is used to inject the solution into the facial musculature and elicits very little pain depending on the area treated. Results are not apparent until 3-7 days after treatment and typically last from 3-6 months. The amount needed varies depending on the individual and desired results.

How does it work?

Botox stops the release of a substance called acetylcholine from a protein inside the neuron which acts to stimulate muscle movement. This blocking of communication results in weakness and immobility of the facial muscle responsible for making wrinkles appear.

Is it dangerous?

Many people are fearful to have a “toxin” injected into their face, wondering what the ill effects could be. The truth is, BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) contain only tiny amounts of a highly purified Botulinum Toxin Protein and the amount utilized cosmetically for the facial muscles is extremely minute. Despite the fear-invoking word “toxin”, botulinum injections for facial rhytids (wrinkles) is very safe and if by some chance you were not happy with your results, then it wears off after 3-4 months. The key to ensuring a good experience is by selecting an experienced injector that has been properly trained in administration and technique.
