Years of repeatedly contracting the facial muscles will eventually result in the appearance of wrinkles in your thinning facial skin. However, with just a few injections of Dysport® or Botox®, we can reduce the muscle movements that create those unsightly lines and wrinkles. Ultimately, we are able to reduce the activity of the muscles that create those unattractive lines and prevent the superficial aging of your face.
Dysport® and Botox® are both FDA-cleared for cosmetic use in the USA. In our clinical experience, neuromodulators are both safe and effective for the temporary smoothing of the furrows between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines and more. They are also effective in the treatment of migraine headaches, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the armpits, hands and feet), TMJ and chronic neck, shoulder and back pain. Treatments generally take just 10-20 minutes, although times vary from person to person.
Dysport® generally takes effect within 24 to 48 hours while Botox® may take 5 to 7 days to show effect. However, both products show full effect on muscle relaxation at 14 days. In many studies, and in all of our in-office clinical outcomes, Dysport® has shown about a 30-day longer duration of effect. The most common side effects of both products are a short-term, dull headache or minor discomfort at the injection site. Due to the time of onset and the length of duration, we recommend Dysport®. However, we do carry both products to accommodate client preferences. We recommend that both Dysport® and Botox® treatments be spaced at least 90 days apart, after your first 14-day follow-up visit in our office.
We recommend this product for: preventing or correcting forehead lines, bunny lines and crow’s feet, treating your 11’s, correcting a gummy or toothy smile, getting a nonsurgical brow lift, lifting the tip of the nose, reducing lip lines, lifting the corners of the mouth and correcting facial asymmetries due to Bells Palsy or surgery. These products can also treat: tension headaches, migraine headaches, tooth clenching, tooth grinding, TMJ and excessive sweating of the hands, feet or underarms. Dysport® and Botox® may also be useful for chronic spastic muscle pain of the neck, shoulder and spine or for slimming down a wide or square jaw line without the need for surgery.
