Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions.
- Time: About 30 Minutes
- Cost: $12 Per Unit
What are Neuromodulators?
Neuromodulators aka Botox and Dysport are used to soften or diminish fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. They block the nerve signals to overworked muscles, allowing muscles to return to their at-rest position. The cookie-cutter one size fits all approach often gives this treatment a bad name. Botox/Dysport injections are not a one size fits all injection! The treatment is customized to fit your personalized goals. Whether you want natural movement or no movement at all, this is the treatment for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This procedure is quick and comfortable. The targeted areas are carefully marked to serve as a guide for the injector. The injections are then precisely delivered into the muscles. Price varies depending on the number of units used. Personalized estimation of units is discussed at the appointment. The injections process takes around 30 minutes to complete. You can expect full results in about 14 days.
Areas to be treated:
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are the perfect solutions to treat and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial furrows. They work well on crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and the frown lines between the eyebrows.
Botox and Dysport are great for removing tension in certain muscles on the face in order to correct fine lines. Injecting between the eyebrows releases muscle tension in that area, reduce the appearance of bunny lines and glabellar frown lines. This helps Botox and Dysport patients look stress-free.
Botox or Dysport around the lips can lessen the appearance of vertical lip lines, also called smoker’s lines or lipstick lines. This can make the lips look younger. It can also be injected to lift the upper lip, preventing gums from showing when smiling.
Botox or Dysport can effectively smooth out the appearance of a dimpled chin (known as orange-peel chin or peau d’orange chin).
These neuromodulators can also relax muscles on the sides of the neck and jaw. Injecting Botox or Dysport in the masseter muscles in the jaw helps to soften the area for a more feminine look. Injections in the neck address harsh vertical neck bands.
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport benefit people who want to prevent or reduce the appearance of wrinkles without going through surgery. There is no downtime or recovery time required. The results are subtle yet effective, and the effects typically last for 3 to 4 months.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox/Dysport?
Most people are excellent candidates for these neuromodulators. Botox and Dysport are recommended for healthy individuals ages 18 and above as per the US Food and Drug Administration. Many patients come in for preventative Botox or Dysport injections around age 25.
The best candidates for Botox and Dysport are people who are committed to maintaining healthy skin. Additionally, if you currently have a skin infection in the targeted areas, you will need to treat it before coming in.
Your Botox/Dysport Consultation
A consultation for neuromodulators will involve a detailed conversation about your appearance goals. Inform our aesthetic professionals about any allergies to help them determine if Botox or Dysport is safe for you.
Prepare your complete medical history, including information on any current prescriptions and supplements, any past procedures, and any pre-existing conditions.
Realistic expectations are key—because neuromodulators are a form of non-surgical treatment for correcting fine lines and wrinkles, the results are different from facelift surgeries. Our skincare professionals will help you determine whether your signs of aging can be improved with Botox or Dysport.
How to Prepare for a Botox/Dysport Session
To prepare for a Botox and Dysport treatment, avoid aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These medications can increase the chance of bruising and swelling after injections. Inform Dr. Herzog about any medication allergies you may have during your consultation.
Avoid drinking alcohol for at least two to three days to prevent excessive bruising after the treatment.
On the day of your Botox or Dysport appointment, refrain from wearing makeup or skincare products to keep your skin safe.
