These are prescription-only medications that helps reduce wrinkles on the face. They work particularly well on frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and crow’s feet (wrinkles by the sides of the eyes).
As we get older, the wrinkles on our face tend to get deeper and much more visible. These wrinkles make us look and feel older than we really are. And while that’s just how life is, it doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. BOTOX® & Dysport can help reduce those wrinkles and make you look and feel younger. They can also be used to prevent wrinkles from forming as early as in your 20s.
BOTOX® is derived from the botulinum toxin, a protein and neurotoxin that causes muscles to relax. It is that property of BOTOX® that is beneficial in its use as an aesthetic treatment. When the injected muscles in the face relax, the associated wrinkles tend to soften, producing a pleasant “youthful” appearance on the face. Dysport works similarly. The two are like Coca Cola vs Pepsi. Dysport tends to have a faster onset (3 days) vs Botox (7 days).
Dysport tends to have a faster onset (3 days ) vs Botox (7 days). Both will have their maximum results in 14 days.
The effects are impressive, but are only temporary and usually last three to five months. Therefore, follow-up injections are required to maintain the effects.
Wrinkles such as worry lines, laugh lines, neck lines, crow’s feet and neck bands are caused by muscles under the skin contracting when we laugh, smile or express emotions facially. Wrinkle erasers work on the root of the cause- the muscles. They temporarily weaken the skin’s muscles, reducing their ability to contract. No contractions mean no wrinkles, and skin is smoother, tighter and wrinkle-free. Dr. Moran’s philosophy is to start small for a more natural, expressive look. Subsequent doses can be adjusted accordingly.
Please tell Dr. Moran if you:
Before your treatment, Dr. Moran will perform a complete medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. Dr. Moran will also perform a complete facial examination to see which areas of your face can benefit from the treatment. You will be asked to do things like raise and furrow your eyebrows, squint, and wrinkle your nose. Factors such as wrinkle crease depth and symmetry are noted, and your treatment plan will be designed around those findings. Dr. Moran will ask about medications you are taking, allergies you may have, or activities you may be undergoing.
Right after the treatment, expect a slight discomfort from the injected areas. There shouldn’t be any pain afterward. You may be asked to perform facial exercises by frowning and smiling frequently for the next hour right after the treatment. Approximately 10 days later, you will start to see the effects of the neurotoxin in the form of less wrinkles and smoother skin. You can resume your normal daily activities right after the treatment, although anything strenuous should be avoided for one to two days.
