BOTOX AND DYSPORT Q & A
What is Botox?
You’ve likely heard of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment on the market, but what exactly is Botox? The drug comes in the form of an injection that, when strategically placed by a licensed professional, can alleviate the wrinkles and lines that inevitably develop as you age.
What is Dysport?
Like Botox, Dysport injections are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Dysport is primarily used to reduce the appearance of lines in the area between your eyebrows.
Your provider performs Dysport injections in the office, and you can leave immediately after the procedure is finished.
How can Botox and Dysport make me look younger?
The wrinkles that appear on your face as you age have a lot to do with the movements and expressions that you make. You form wrinkles near muscles that are overworked.
Botox is designed to specifically alleviate forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines, while Dysport is used to alleviate moderate to severe wrinkles between your eyebrows. These wrinkles can become prominent even when your face is relaxed.
The results of your injections last three months or more. If you’re satisfied with your new look, you can book follow-up injections to maintain them.
What are the side effects of Botox and Dysport?
- Droopy eyelids
