Botox and Dysport are purified proteins derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected into your facial muscles, these amazing formulas can smooth out wrinkles by controlling muscle activity in specific areas. Both Botox and Dysport are temporary treatments that harmlessly wear off over time.
Although the formulas are quite similar, there are some mild differences in Botox and Dysport that make their injection areas different. At this time, Dysport is FDA-approved for injection in your glabellar lines (also known as 11 lines or frown lines) between your eyebrows. Botox is FDA-approved for injection in your glabellar lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet.
Botox and Dysport aren't dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane®. Instead, they're in a class called neuromodulators. Dermal fillers erase the smile lines and resolve other volume problems from under your eyes down to your chin.
Botox and Dysport smooth the wrinkles around your eyes and upwards, including your forehead. Botox and Dysport don't impact facial volume, and dermal fillers don't impact muscle movement. Although dermal fillers and neuromodulators are different, they work together well, and you can have both treatments at once if you wish.
Generally, most patients see results within three days. As the injectable takes effect, you'll notice that you look fresher and younger.
No, most patients rate Botox and Dysport treatment as virtually pain-free. Your City Skin and Laser Clinic specialist injects the product with extremely tiny needles, so a brief sting is all you're likely to experience. The injections take only around 10 minutes, and any discomfort fades right away.
Botox lasts up to four months, and Dysport up to five months. It’s important to understand, however, that each patient may respond to neuromodulators differently so you may enjoy superior results with either product.
Botox and Dysport can help you look younger in as little as a few days, with no downtime at all. Call City Skin and Laser Clinic today or book your consultation online to get your treatment.
