BOTOX® or DYSPORT®

ABOUT

Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

To get Botox, or not to get Botox, that seems to be the question on the minds of women (and men) spanning from ages 25 to 65. It is one of the most effective wrinkle treatment on the market today, Botox is just one of many FDA-approved brands that do the very same thing. “Botox is a brand name just like Chanel or Loius Vuiton. Dysport is another brand name for the injectable anti-wrinkle treatment. BOTOX® or Dysport work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles and easing the muscle tension that causes fine lines and wrinkles. 

Treatments can be performed in under 30 minutes and you can return to work, however, no lying down or lifting for four hours post procedure, and refrain from exercising for the rest of the day. You may resume your normal activity the next day and can expect the full effect of the treatment between 7 and 14 days.

 

HOW IT WORKS:

STEP 1. CONSULTATION

Prior to the procedure, you will have a one-on-one consultation with our experienced injector. During this appointment, we will examine your skin, review your medical history, and discuss any current medications. We will then explain the procedure, and what you can expect. To help prevent bruising from the injections, it is recommended to avoid all blood thinning medications and supplements for two weeks prior to injections. These include ibuprofen, Excedrin, Aspirin, Alleve, vitamin E, fish oil, and multi-vitamins. Believe it or not, coffee and alcohol are also blood thinning agents and should be avoided the day of and night before the treatment. Since bruising is always possible, plan injections at least 2 weeks prior to an event. Breastfeeding and pregnancy, neuromuscular and neurological disorders are not suitable for this treatment. We do have other treatments that will be discussed if this is not an option for you.

For optimal anti-wrinkle results, ask about how ZO® Skin Health’s skin care and peels, Dermal Fillers and Microneedling can enhance your results.

STEP 2. TREATMENT PLAN

If we agree that you are a good candidate for the treatment we will create an individual treatment plan. If time allows we can accommodate your treatment at the same appointment.

STEP 3. INJECTION

Once a plan has been determined, our experienced injector uses a very fine needle to inject the neurotoxin to the targeted facial muscles. Most patients compare the sensation to a pinprick or slight pinch. We do our best to make the treatment as comfortable as possible and have other methods of minimizing pain. Most patients report little to no after effects aside from minimal redness, headache, or bruising, which resolve quickly.

On average, the effects of most BOTOX® or Dysport can be seen within 7-14 days and effects last approximately 3-4 months.
