Dysport® & Botox®
As you age, the skin reduces the production of collagen and elastin. The repeated facial expressions of laughing, scowling or squinting can lead to visible lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, these dynamic wrinkles are preventable and treatable by using Neuromodulators. Dysport®&Botox® is an injectable treatment that helps to block chemical signals from reaching the nerves, temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for certain motions of the face.
What can I expect from Dysport®&Botox® treatments?
Discomfort from Dysport®&Botox® injectables is minimal and brief and most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. Some patients prefer to numb the area with a cold pack prior to injecting. There is no downtime and most patients return to work or their normal activities. Sometimes patients experience minor redness or bruising, but these are easily covered with makeup. In about 5-7 days, patients start seeing the results on the treated areas. Depending on patients, the retention can last up to 4-5 months.
Do Neuromodulators prevent new lines & wrinkles from forming?
Yes! One of the most remarkable things about Dysport®&Botox® is that not only do they reduce the appearance of existing lines, they also prevent the formation of new ones – effectively “stopping the clock” on part of the aging process.
