What is Botox?
Botox is renowned as a convenient, non-surgical, and effective treatment for any facial wrinkling. This treatment works by paralyzing the muscles in the face, stopping them from tensing up and causing wrinkles. It is derived from the Botulinum Toxin.
What are the benefits of Botox?
Patients can see results within just 5 days of the procedure, and the procedure itself is very short and unintrusive, taking less than 30 minutes per session. Botox can be used to smooth and remove a wide variety of wrinkles including frown lines, crow's feet, forehead lines, and more. While it is very effective, it will not "freeze" or make your face look unnatural. This treatment lasts up to six months. Results can, however, take between a week to a month before appearing.
Botox can also be used to treat conditions such as crossed eyes, muscle spasms, migraines, foot pain, overactive bladders, gastroenteritis, and even depression. Frowning, a physical manifestation of stress and anxiety, helps your brain realize you are stressed by giving it a physical signal to interpret, a process which Botox stops by preventing you from frowning as much.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injection treatment that works to remove and reduce wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles and decreasing their movement. The decreased contractions allow for the wrinkles to go away and prevent wrinkles from forming. The active ingredient in this injectable is Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is the same as Botox's. Dysport is mainly used to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows. These frown lines are sometimes called 11's because they look like the number 11.
What are the benefits of Dysport?
There are numerous benefits to Dysport. First off, Dysport reduces wrinkles in much the same way as Botox, and it also lasts for up to 5 months with relatively few side effects. Dysport also works faster than Botox as it only takes a couple of days to show results.
