Ahhhh, Botox. Luckily, the stigma is quickly wearing away. Results are getting better, more natural, and easier than they ever have been. Especially when being treated by advanced practitioners. Botox & Dysport are both neuromodulators and work by stopping the movement of the muscle treated for 3+ months. This stops this muscle from contracting and causing creases and wrinkles in the skin. Therefore, keeping up with your Botox and Dysport treatments will keep letting the skin smooth out and prevent the wrinkles from re-forming. Amazingly, they can also be used to fix facial asymmetry, slim faces, give brow lifts, give a minimal lip enhancement, and minimize sweating.
What is the Botox or Dysport treatment like?
This is a very quick treatment that involves having a few teeny tiny injections to the area needing treatment. When we say ‘20 units’, don’t worry, that doesn’t mean 20 injections!
How many Botox or Dysport treatments do I need?
When recommended doses are given, clients generally only need 1 treatment every 3-6 months. It’s best to keep up with your regular treatments to avoid the lines from re-forming due to muscle action again.
What to expect after a Botox/Dysport treatment.
A tiny bit of local swelling and redness can happen that generally resolves within an hour. There is always the possibility of bruising as well which can also depend on current medications, age, and certain disorders. We’ll do everything we can to prevent bruising for you.
Who can NOT have this treatment?
Anyone pregnant, or people with certain types of nerve or muscle disorders such as ALS, Myesthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton Syndrome.
