As people get older, visible signs of aging appear on the skin in the form of fine lines and wrinkles. The body’s natural collagen begins to degenerate, leading to laugh lines or crow’s feet around the eyes, bunny lines when smiling, and even sagging eyelids. The good news is that cosmetic treatments are affordable, simple, nonsurgical procedures that can smooth the appearance of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and saggy brows that are associated with aging.
Wrinkles are caused by the repetitive contraction of facial muscles. This can cause deep furrows in our brows and lines in our skin and neck that age our appearance. While these changes are a natural part of life, there are ways to relax, soften, and smooth out these pesky age indicators. Botox and Dysport are both neuromodulators which are injected into specific facial muscles to reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles.
How Botox Can Work for You
The most famous neuromodulator brand is Botox. It has been used for decades to treat millions of patients all over the world. This is a highly-purified protein neuromodulator, which means it can temporarily weaken the injected muscle to prevent repetitive contractions. The result is to soften, smooth, and temporarily eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. The most common areas treated are forehead wrinkles, fine lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet or laugh lines around the eyes, and bunny lines around the nose.
Botox is injected with a tiny needle directly into the muscles that are causing the lines. When these muscles are temporarily immobilized, a person can no longer draw these muscles together and the wrinkles and bunny lines smooth out. This incredible serum can also be used to lift the eyebrows, helping to reduce the appearance of saggy eyelids or hooded eyes.
Results begin to show in as little as 2 to 4 days and reach peak efficacy in 10 to 14 days. These results will typically last between 3 to 4 months, with a progressive duration of effect the longer a patient continues with consecutive treatment.
Dysport May Be Perfect For You
Dysport is also a neuromodulator injection which is used to temporarily smooth and soften frown lines, laugh lines, and bunny lines. This product works remarkably well for moderate to severe wrinkles and can last longer with consecutive treatments.
When Dysport is injected into the muscles above the eyebrows, the muscle temporarily ceases to receive nerve impulses, preventing frowning and ultimately leading to a smooth, softer appearance.
Results of Dysport have been seen in 1 to 2 days and have been shown to last 4 months on average, with some patients reporting 6 months of natural-looking results between treatments with consecutive use. While Botox and Dysport are made of the same ingredient, studies of Dysport show the product may spread out over a larger area.
Your physician will help you decide which product is best for you, depending on what area you want to be treated, how close to the eye or mouth you will receive injections and your overall goals. Both Botox and Dysport are proven safe by decades of proven research and clinical studies. A consultation is all you need to discuss which product is right for truly amazing results.
