Botox and Dysport are highly effective, non-surgical procedures that can dramatically reduce your toughest wrinkles within days. FDA approved, this treatment provides a safe and simple way to smooth the deep, persistent lines between your brows, across your forehead, around your outer eyes and around your lips. Within 3-5 days, you will see a marked improvement, which may continue to improve for as long as a week to ten days and should last three to four months.
Botox and Dysport can also help raise the arch of the eyebrow, lift the corners of the mouth, reduce excessive sweating and even mitigate migraine pain.
Most Common Questions About Botox or Dysport
1. What exactly is Botox?
Botox and Dysport both are very purified strands of protein that cause temporary muscle weakness by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles.
2. Does the procedure hurt?
There can be a little discomfort when having Botox or Dysport injected, but most patients find it very tolerable! In fact, the majority of the time, they report the treatment wasn’t nearly as bad as they imagined it would be. We use ice to numb the skin before each injection and inject with a very, very small needle. The medication itself can burn a little bit going in, but usually only lasts a few seconds and disappears. The treatment itself usually only takes 5-10 minutes.
3. Is there any way I can prepare before my treatment?
Yes. Always try to avoid any aspirin containing products (ie. IbuProfen, Advil, Aleve, Aspirin, etc.) or blood-thinning medications for 2 weeks prior to your injection. This will reduce the possibility of any bruising. Always check with your doctor if it is a medication you need to use everyday before discontinuing it. Also, remember to get a good night’s sleep and eat a healthy breakfast before coming in. If you do not eat, you could end up feeling dizzy during your appointment.
4. How do I care for my face after my treatment?
There are only a few guidelines we recommend you follow after your procedure. First, do not lay down flat on your back for at least 4 hours following your injection. This helps keep the medicine where we injected it. Second, we discourage doing any activities that raise your blood pressure, including strenuous exercise the day of your appointment. The next day, you may resume normal activity. And finally, use the muscles we treat as much as you can that day. This helps the Botox or Dysport work into the muscle and can make your treatment more successful!
