BOTOX and DYSPORT

The onset of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines is a common problem for men and women as they age. Though these lines and wrinkles are just reminders of your maturity and wisdom, they can also make you appear tired and even angry. At New South Family Medicine and MedSpa, one way we treat these problem areas is with Botox and Dysport, which is a quick and virtually painless treatment that can help you to look rested and rejuvenated.

RELAX AND ENJOY

 

Using a very fine needle, both Botox and Dysport are placed directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows, lines, and wrinkles.

No anesthetic is required for the targeted injection area, though you may request the provider to numb the area with ice packs or topical anesthetic cream. Results are typically seen within three to five days following your treatment, and long-term results can last up to four months, although areas that are treated regularly may retain results longer.

What is BOTOX/DYSPORT?
 

Neurotoxins, such as Botox® and Dysport®, are used to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. This procedure is the most commonly performed minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment at New South Family Medicine and MedSpa. Neurotoxins are frequently used to treat fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes. They can also be used to soften the jawline, turn up the corners of the mouth, minimize the appearance of a gummy smile, and more. 

How do BOTOX and DYSPORT work?
 

When injected into facial muscles, the toxin temporarily blocks neuron activity, which prevents full muscle contraction. Because the muscles can no longer contract, the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial movements like frowning, raising eyebrows, or squinting is significantly reduced.

What are the Advantages of BOTOX and DYSPORT?

  • Fast and effective. A typical treatment will show improvement approximately after 4-7 days.

  • Little discomfort – we take great care in administering these injections.

  • There is no “downtime.” After the injections, you may resume normal activity or go back to work.

  • Creates natural-looking outcomes without evidence that you’ve had work done.

  • There is no decrease in sensation or numbness of treated areas.

  • The effects of injections are reversible; lasting 3 to 4 months

  • Repeating injections may cause a muscle memory response to develop, thus enhancing the effects.

  • A non-surgical approach to treating wrinkles, and eliminates the need for anesthesia and long recovery times.

AREAS WE TREAT

Are BOTOX and DYSPORT injections painful?
 

At New South Family Medicine and MedSpa, we can apply a topical anesthetic cream and/or ice compresses for several minutes prior to the treatment to numb the area. When the injection begins, you may feel a slight stinging sensation, but it will quickly subside. Once the injection is complete, the nurse will apply an ice compress to address any initial discomfort.

Are BOTOX and DYSPORT injections safe?
 

Both have an excellent safety profile. However, if you are pregnant or have a neurological disease, you should not be treated with Botox or Dysport Cosmetic injections.
