BOTOX® / Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are FDA-approved medications that treat wrinkles and lines. They promote smoother skin by preventing wrinkles and lines from forming. Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® and Dysport® work by temporarily reducing muscle contraction and movement, reducing wrinkles and lines associated with these movements. Additionally, these medications can make you look slimmer and improve your smile by weakening the target muscle. Each individual’s dosage depends on their specific needs and goals. No downtime is required, and the treatment is quick and comfortable. These neuromodulators generally produce results after two days and last for three to four months.

BOTOX® and Dysport® are well known for their roles in the aesthetic world. BOTOX® and Dysport® are both neuromodulators used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and deep furrows on the face. They reduce wrinkles and folds in the skin by reducing underlying muscle activity.

Dysport® takes effect faster than BOTOX®, but it costs and lasts about the same. There are claims that one works better than the other, but in our experience, they are not significantly different.

BOTOX® and Dysport® injections are not permanent. In most cases, BOTOX® or Dysport® treatments require a touch-up after three to four months. *Results will vary from patient to patient.

Neuromodulator injections do not require a recovery period or downtime. Possible side effects may include headaches, bruises, and temporary redness at the injection site.
