Wrinkles are formed over time from repetitive movements of the underlying facial muscles which cause the overlying skin to crease. With injectables you are able to achieve a natural look, not a ‘frozen’ one. Everyone is unique and many of our patients prefer a natural softening of their appearance. We do not have a recipe that we use on everyone, instead we will to talk through the areas that are the most bothersome to you to understand your desired results and create an individualized treatment plan.
Botox & Dysport
Botox and Dysport are among the world’s most popular and time-tested injectables for reversing or preventing age-related fine lines, wrinkles, creases, furrows and folds. They offer a quick and effective way to soften the appearance of wrinkles and lines including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
What are Botox & Dysport?
They are purified proteins that differ very slightly in their chemical configuration. They gradually cause relaxation of the muscle by muting the signal from the brain to the muscle. When the targeted muscles are relaxed, the movements causing wrinkles will be lessened hence diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
How long until I see results?
The effect is gradual. You will start to notice improvement within 3-5 days and peak results within 10-14 days.
How long will the results last?
Individual results will vary based on many factors but on average results will last for 3-4 months.
Are there any common side effects?
You may experience slight bruising and/ or temporary swelling from the injections. But in general, when done correctly, they are very safe, effective, and side effect free.
