Botox & Dysport Q & A
What is Botox®? and Dysport®
Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulator injectable medications that target contracted muscles beneath your skin that cause wrinkles, creases, and expression lines to form. The skilled team of professionals at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics uses Botox® and Dysport® to help your expression look younger and more pleasant.
How does Botox and Dysport work?
Repeated facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and squinting can result in permanently contracted muscles that create wrinkles and creases over time. Botox® and Dysport® neuromodulation injection therapies block nerve signals to your muscles, causing them to relax.
The experienced, licensed injector team at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics uses Botox and Dysport to smooth and rejuvenate your skin without giving your face a “frozen” look.
Which areas can be treated with Botox and Dysport?
Botox® and Dysport® reduces the appearance of wrinkles, creases, or lines in the following areas:
Between the eyebrows
Around the lips
Botox® and Dysport® can also:
Brighten your eyes by creating a lift in your eyebrow area.
Reduce a “gummy” smile
Treat excessive sweating
When will I see results from Botox or Dysport injections?
Botox® and Dysport® results are typically noticeable within 3-5 days of treatment, with full results visible within 10-14 days
How long will my results from Botox or Dysport injections last?
Botox® and Dysport® results last between 3-5 months on average. Touch-up treatments are important to help maintain improvements to your skin for long-lasting wrinkle reduction.
Are Botox and Dysport injections safe?
Botox® and Dysport® are both FDA approved for cosmetic use and are considered safe, effective treatments for wrinkles and lines caused by repetitive facial expression. You may experience a little redness or irritation around the treatment site, but this usually subsides quickly within 1-3 hours. More serious side effects are possible but very rare.
Am I a candidate for Botox or Dysport?
If you have mild to moderate wrinkles or creases caused by repeated facial expressions, Botox® or Dysport® may be right for you. Wrinkles caused by skin laxity and other factors may respond better to dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®.
