BOTOX® & DYSPORT™
The most popular way to reduce wrinkles on the face without surgery.
WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?
Botox® is FDA approved and the most popular way to reduce wrinkles on the face. This simple, non-invasive and pain free procedure smooths frown lines, crow’s feet, furrows on the forehead and skin bands on the neck to create a refreshed, less tired more youthful appearance! It is a quick five minute procedure with no down time that can easily be performed during the lunch hour.
WHAT IS DYSPORT?
Dysport is an injectable made from the same neurotoxin as Botox. Like Botox, Dysport received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment.
While similar to Botox, some research suggests that Dysport may be faster-acting and last longer. It also spreads farther from the injection site, thus allowing a broader area of small wrinkles to be treated with fewer injections. Your pre-treatment consultation with your provider will determine the best neurotoxin agent for your needs.
WHO WILL INJECT MY BOTOX OR DYSPORT TREATMENT?
At Hydrogen, LLC Med Spa, your BOTOX® Cosmetic and/or Dysport treatment will be administered by an advanced trained and licensed Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant. Injections of Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport are quick, comfortable and performed with no down time in the comfort of our luxurious Med Spa setting.
DOES IT HURT TO GET INJECTED WITH BOTOX OR DYSPORT?
Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is not normally needed. If concerned however, you can request an anesthetic (numbing) cream prior to treatment.
The treatment session typically lasts less than five minutes with full effect taking several days as the muscles gradually relax.
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO MAKE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you appear as if you’ve “had work done.” Our trained providers will work with your goals to ensure a natural, youthful appearance.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE THE EFFECTS? HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
BOTOX® Cosmetic can take seven to ten days for treatment to set in, and visible results have been shown to last up to four months. Personal results will vary, so speak with your healthcare provider about what to expect and when to schedule your next appointment. Dysport has a quicker onset, and results can be seen as soon as 24-48 hours. This may be better suited for patients that need a more immediate outcome, although length of results are approximately the same for Dysport and BOTOX® Cosmetic. Both Botox and Dysport will last up to four months.
