Life’s ups and downs carry you through a journey of emotions that you feel internally and whether you realize it or not, show externally. While others can easily see and read your facial expressions, you yourself may not realize the amount of facial contractions that occur with every day feelings. Over time, facial lines and wrinkles from years of laughter, smiles, frowns, and worry may become more prominent as a result of reduced skin elasticity from the natural aging process. BOTOX® Cosmetic, as well as Dysport, both work in reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles in both men and women.
Botox and Dysport are a simple, non-surgical treatments for facial wrinkles. Both are FDA approved and when injected into a muscle, it blocks nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. The effect is that it temporarily weakens the facial muscles and smoothes or eliminates wrinkles. This section of the website, as well as other sections, may contain usage that is considered off-label. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a registered trademark of Allergan and Dysport is a registered trademark of Medicis.
Botox and Dysport are injected into the muscles, blocking nerve impulses and reducing muscle activity that causes moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. Once muscles activity is reduced, skin relaxes, forming a smoother, more natural appearance. Furthermore, early use of Botox or Dysport may delay the development of fine lines.
Both Botox and Dysport can provide immediate, less-invasive facial rejuvenation. There is no downtime and results will take full effect between 24 hours to 3-5 days, depending upon which product is used. While the results are not permanent, you can ultimately pause the aging process with simple, quick injections every 3-6 months to keep skin looking youthful and revitalized.
