Every time you squint, frown or even smile, you contract muscles in your face. Over time, these natural facial expressions can begin to form lines and wrinkles on your skin, making you appear older than you are. Luckily, these effects of aging can be treated without going under the knife!
To most, Botox® and Dysport® are recognizable names—and they remain the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatments for aging on the market.
Improve Wrinkles with Botox
Botox Cosmetic is a medicine that is injected into desired muscles to temporarily freeze their movement. In reducing muscle activity, the treatment can improve the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyebrows. One to two days after your Botox injections, you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of lines and wrinkles.
To most patients, a Botox treatment feels like a pinch! But if you’re concerned with discomfort, speak to your specialist about numbing the treatment area. A standard procedure takes about ten minutes—and you can return to your daily activities immediately after your session! Botox results typically last up to four months, but results may vary.
At Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care, we also use Botox to treat Hyperhidrosis. Learn more about treatments for excessive sweating here.
Naturally Smooth Lines with Dysport
Like Botox, Dysport is a prescription that is injected into muscles to temporarily reduce their movement and activity. The injections help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, and since only treated muscles are affected, your facial expressions remain natural. You’ll notice improvement in your appearance two to three days after your Dysport session.
Most Dysport procedures take between 10 to 20 minutes. Your specialist will address your treatment plan with you, as well as the number of injections necessary and post-procedure care. The smoothing of lines and wrinkles typically lasts up to four months, but results may vary.
