BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® injections can substantially reduce the wrinkles that result from contractions caused by underlying muscles. These two popular anti-aging treatments work by blocking the muscle contractions that create creases and wrinkles along your brow and between your eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are commonly used to address:
- Crow's feet: Lines that radiate from the outer edges of your eyes when you squint and smile
- Frown (glabellar) lines: Creases that appear between the eyebrows and can make you appear upset or stressed
- Brow lines: Lateral furrows on your forehead that become more pronounced when you lift your eyebrows
Comparing Anti-aging Options
Although the compound used in BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® is derived from the same source, there are a few key differences between the two injectables. Dysport® contains a protein with a smaller circumference, which allows it to spread further from the injection site. BOTOX® Cosmetic, with its larger-sized molecules, expands over a smaller area. On the one hand, thanks to the wider spread of Dysport®, patients can expect a softer result and a reduced risk of a frozen or unnatural look. On the other hand, BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively treat the most stubborn and deep furrows that can substantially detract from a youthful appearance.
Your Treatment and Its Effects
During your initial consultation, you and your doctor will discuss your unique aesthetic concerns and other factors to determine which therapy is best for you. You will review any pre-existing medical conditions, and explore other therapies, like laser resurfacing or dermal fillers, which might complement treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®.
When you visit our office for your BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections, you will be asked to first squint or frown. This allows the doctor or technician to identify the areas where injections will produce the greatest impact. By using an ultra-fine needle, your treatment can begin right away, without the need for a numbing agent. The number of injections you need will depend on the type and severity of the lines and wrinkles you would like to address. Your treatment will be quick - usually just fifteen minutes or less. You may notice the benefits right away, although the effects will become more noticeable about 10 to 14 days later. The results of your treatment should last for approximately four to six months, after which time you can return to our office periodic touch-ups.
