At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, we offer both Botox and Dysport to treat your lines and wrinkles in the upper face. Botox and Dysport can effectively smooth out lines that are caused by facial expressions weakening the skin, which is a natural part of the aging process. With Botox and Dysport, patients can look younger without surgery.
Botox and Dysport are both neuromodulator injectables that target wrinkles in the upper face. Neuromodulators are composed of neurotoxins that target the facial muscles, temporarily reducing their activity. A professional injector like Adley DaSilva knows exactly where to place the formula so that only wrinkle-causing muscles are affected, leaving patients the ability to express themselves without the lines. While Botox and Dysport work the same way, the two formulas are slightly different when it comes to price, the length of results, and how soon results show. Adley will go over both formulas during a consultation to determine which one is right for you.
Both men and women in the Port St. Lucie area can benefit from nonsurgical treatment with Botox or Dysport. Botox or Dysport can be an effective solution for those who want to look younger, but don’t require, or are not ready for a surgical procedure like the facelift or brow lift. Botox and Dysport can treat dynamic wrinkles, those that are caused by facial expressions like smiling or frowning. Those that experience static wrinkles, wrinkles that are present when the face is relaxed, may be better candidates for dermal fillers. Botox or Dysport are often combined with other treatments like dermal fillers or laser treatments for optimal facial rejuvenation. Botox and Dysport can also provide maintenance to the results of a past procedure like a facelift or brow lift.
Botox and Dysport can treat the following types of wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes
- Frown lines between the brows
- Forehead lines
Prior to treatment with Botox or Dysport, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream can be applied for those worried about discomfort. Adley will then use the syringe with a very thin needle to place a small amount of Botox or Dysport below the skin. This will involve several specific points around the forehead and brows. The exact treatment process and the amount of the formula needed will be gone over during your consultation. The injection process is complete in about 15 minutes.
Because treatment with Botox and Dysport is nonsurgical, there is no recovery time necessary. Patients can expect some mild side effects like swelling, redness, and itching at the injection sites. These side effects should resolve in the next few hours. Normal activity can be resumed, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first day. Heat and direct sunlight should be avoided for several days.
If Botox was used, results will become noticeable in about 4-6 days, providing smoother skin for a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. These results can last for about 6 months before a touch-up session is needed. If Dysport was used, results will become apparent in about 2-3 days and can last for up to 4 months before a touch-up session is needed.
The first step to receiving Botox or Dysport is to schedule your consultation at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging with Adley. He will examine your signs of aging and discuss your concerns to determine which treatment is right for you. Although nonsurgical, Botox and Dysport should only be administered by a professional like Adley to ensure the safest most effective results. Contact us today at (772)218-9632.
