HOW DO BOTOX AND DYSPORT WORK?
Botox® Cosmetic & Dysport® work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that are responsible for skin wrinkling. This injectable treatment can improve the appearance of certain wrinkles that are related to facial expressionsuch as crow’s feet, frown and forehead lines.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR NEUROTOXIN TREATMENT?
The best candidates for this treatment are men and women who are looking to improve the appearance of certain expression-related wrinkles such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. It is important to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. If you are older than 65, you may have a less optimal outcome.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX® COSMETIC AND DYSPORT®?
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and has been used for many years in treating patients with muscular disease and over ten years in the cosmetic market. Dysport® is derived from cow based protein and is newer to the US market, but has been used in Europe for many years. Your clinician will assess and go over which treatment is right for you based on cost, amount of product needed to achieve desired results, and previous experience with the products.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE?
The procedure is relatively quick and simple with minimal pain or discomfort. A series of pinpoint injections are made into the targeted muscles and, if necessary, a topical anesthetic cream or ice can be applied to help reduce discomfort.
