What is Botox or Dysport? What benefit does it offer?
Botox and Dysport are two of the most well-known anti-aging treatments available today. These injectable intramuscular compounds remove wrinkles by temporarily constraining the muscle in the targeted area. The treatments are quick and virtually painless with visible results in a matter of days. Botox and Dysport minimize unwanted wrinkles and smooth facial lines resulting in fresher, smoother, softer facial features.
What areas are appropriate for this procedure?
Botox and Dysport are especially good for smoothing forehead lines, ‘frown lines,’ brow furrows, and crows’ feet around the eyes. Spa Radiance Medical nurses are highly skilled injectors and can use advanced techniques to address other areas of concern as well.
What is the treatment experience?
A Botox or Dysport appointment begins with a discussion of the improvements you would like to see in the facial area. The practitioner marks the treatment areas and calculates how much serum is needed. The nurse cleanses the area with alcohol and uses a very fine needle to inject the serum from a sterlile syringe. Then a small ice pack is applied to the treatment area to maintain numbness and reduce swelling. The experience is barely painful, merely the prick of the needle, and lasts a few seconds per injection.
There is little to no downtime. Some patients experience bruising in the injection areas, which can be addressed with further ice packs, arnica pills, topical arnica, and LED lights. To lessen the potential for bruising we recommend refraining from alcohol and aspirin consumption 24 hours prior to treatment.
Botox or Dysport takes about two weeks to reach full effect. Depending upon the treatment area, the results may last from three to six months, with the effect slowly fading out over time.
What’s the difference between relaxants and fillers like Dermal Fillers?
Botox and Dysport are used to relax individual facial muscles, like the furrows on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet beside the eyes. Fillers ‘fill in’ the lines and contour the face, adding plumpness to the skin on top of the muscles. Fillers and injectable relaxants are often used in conjunction to restore a naturally youthful appearance. Your Spa Radiance Medical professional will recommend a personalized treatment plan that may include the fillers and injectable treatments most appropriate for your needs.
Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in the world. Botox smoothes away wrinkles by weakening the underlying muscles that repetitively
form wrinkles. Botox injectable treatments may last up to four months.
Dysport is an injectable treatment that temporarily blocks the signals that particular nerves send to muscles in targeted areas, while leaving the untargeted muscles free for normal facial expression. Dysport is used to reduce contraction of muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles.
