The Benefits of Injectable Wrinkle Treatments
With the help of Botox and Dysport, patients can resolve a number of wrinkles:
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines between the brows
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Lipstick lines around the lips
- Chin wrinkles, or orange-peel chin
Additionally, jaw and jawline contouring can be achieved, as can reduction of harsh vertical platysmal neck bands.
In terms of medical uses, Dysport and Botox can be utilized in the correction of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the armpits and in other areas. They can also help treat migraine headaches.
For patients interested in treating moderate wrinkles and harsh age lines, Dr. Jeffords will most likely recommend trying a dermal filler product instead of Botox or Dysport. Dermal fillers are injectables that can restore volume in order to fill under eye depressions and wrinkles on the cheeks and around the mouth.
How Do Botox and Dysport Work?
Botox is manufactured by Allergan. Dysport is a product of Ipsen/Medicis. Both injectables are refined forms of Botulinum toxin type A.
These products are neuromodulators, meaning they are used to modify the effects of neurotransmitters on the nerves. Nerve signals are what cause our muscles to contract.
After years of making the same facial movements over and over again, the overused muscles in our face become stiff and stuck in contracted positions. This leads to bunched wrinkles in the overlying skin.
With the help of Dysport and Botox injections, the overused facial muscles can relax. This allows the skin to become flat and smooth again, giving patients a more youthful appearance.
What Is a Botox/Dysport Treatment Like?
This is an office procedure. The sites intended for treatment are first marked as a guide. A small amount of topical numbing cream is placed on the injections sites. Then very small quantities of Botox/Dysport are placed just beneath the skin at the muscles.
No recovery is needed after treatment with Botox or Dysport. Instead, you can return to work or home just after the procedure. A very small degree of swelling or bruising may be present but will fade shortly.
Within a few days, you will have diminished abilities to frown, scowl, or squint. When the muscles relax, the wrinkles lessen. These treatments last 3-4 months. After this, you can return for a follow-up treatment to preserve your results.
