Wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines are a common concern. Many people are interested in reversing these signs of aging, but not as many are willing to undergo a surgical procedure. That’s why we offer both BOTOX® and Dysport® at OC SkinLab. Contact our office in San Juan Capistrano today to find out which of these injectables is right for you.
What Is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable treatment specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles, which are the wrinkles that form when we make facial expressions. Over time, these lines and wrinkles become etched into our skin. When injected into key areas of the face, BOTOX® relaxes the muscles responsible for forming dynamic wrinkles and relieves the tension holding them in place.
What Is Dysport®?
Dysport® is a newer neuromodulator like the older BOTOX®, but it tends to work a little differently. Some reports show that Dysport® diffuses more easily once injected, making it a good option for the crow’s feet and glabella (the space between the eyes). In comparison to BOTOX®, Dysport® has been shown in clinical studies to start working sooner, last longer and impart more “natural looking” results. In fact, Dysport® is the preferred neuromodulator by Dr. Hure.
The Benefits of BOTOX® and Dysport®
Both injectables come with many benefits, including:
- Quick treatment time
- Little, if any, downtime
- Results that can last up to six months
- Minimally invasive
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Treatment begins with a consultation with our specialist, during which you will be able to talk about your aesthetic goals, concerns, and medical history. We will also give you more detailed information about the advantages of BOTOX® and Dysport® and help you decide which one is right for you.
Treatment sessions are quick and usually take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. After receiving their injections, most people can go right back to their daily routine.
When Will I See Results?
Patients typically start to see results about five to ten days after receiving BOTOX® injections, and they will continue to improve over the course of the next one or two weeks. Initial results will set in more quickly for Dysport®, with full effect by one week. Results can last anywhere from three to six months, after which patients can come back for re-treatments as needed. To ensure that every patient achieves the best result, quick follow up visits are scheduled to determine if additional units are needed.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Potential side effects include minor headache, swelling, bruising, itching and tenderness at the treatment site. However, these aftereffects are minor and typically go away within a few days after injections were administered.
If you are frustrated with lackluster results from topical creams and serums, BOTOX® or Dysport® could be the answer. We will be happy to help you learn more at OC SkinLab, located in San Juan Capistrano. Contact our office today to schedule your first appointment!
