Are you sick and tired of looking at those wrinkles on your forehead or at the base of your nose? If so, stop worrying (and adding to those stress lines!) because you may be a good candidate to undergo botulinum toxin treatment
What are Botox® and Dysport®?
Known as botulinum toxins, both Botox® and Dysport® relax your forehead muscles by blocking the nerve signals that help them contract. The end result is you look more refreshed and less tired or angry. Botulinum toxin can also help smooth out frown lines, crow’s feet, and skin bands on the neck. Often, their use is combined with facial fillers (Juvederm®, Restylane®, etc.) to help provide a nonsurgical or “liquid” face-lift. Botox® can also be used to treat patients who suffer from extreme sweating, or hyperhidrosis.
How is the procedure performed?
The treatment area will be cleaned and the botulinum toxin is injected directly into this area at several points using a very fine needle. The injections take only 15-20 minutes and you should be able to return to your normal routine almost immediately.
What to expect after undergoing botulinum toxin treatment?
You may experience some redness but this should resolve quickly. You will start seeing results in 3-4 days and by 7 days post-treatment, you should be able to fully enjoy your wrinkle-free treatment area! Results typically last 3-5 months and can be repeated to help you maintain your new, refreshed look. Of course, if you really want to improve the quality of your skin so it looks younger and healthier, combine these treatments with our key skin care products and/or chemical peels…you won’t be disappointed!
