BOTOX/DYSPORT

Botox/Dysport is a fast, safe and convenient cosmetic procedure that temporarily inhibits muscle contraction under the skin to give it a smoother appearance while reducing or eliminating wrinkles quickly with a treatment usually being performed in as little as 10 minutes.
Botox/Dysport is most commonly injected into the skin of the face or neck, creating a younger, plumper look and addressing concerns like lines, wrinkles, volume loss and sagging, with your untreated muscles still working normally, so you still maintain natural expressions.
The results can be seen almost immediately and typically last three to four months, Botox/Dysport is typically more subtle than surgery giving a more natural solution to any skin aging concerns.

A botox/dysport procedure requires little to no special preparations for an injection, without an extensive recovery time following a procedure you can return to your regular activities quickly, which is why Botox/Dysport is often referred to as the “lunch hour facelift.”
Concerns about fine lines and wrinkles you may have are usually attributed to these factors:

  1. Loss of collagen
  2. Free radicals from the sun and the environment
  3. Repeated muscle contractions from
      • Frowning
      • Laugh/smile lines
      • Raising eyebrows
      • Squinting

 

WHERE CAN YOU GET BOTOX/DYSPORT?

The most popular use for Botox or Dysport is in the facial muscles.

By relaxing different facial muscles – from the forehead to the neck – wrinkles can be minimized, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin

  1. Upper face:
      • Frown lines (between eyebrows)
      • Forehead lines
      • Top of the nose (bunny lines)
      • Eyebrows/hooded eyes
      • Wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet)
      • Under the eyes (tear trough)
  2. Lower Face:
      • Lipstick lines (around the mouth)
      • Chin (to prevent dimpling)
      • Jawline & Neck
      • Jaw Angle (teeth grinding — bruxism)

What To Expect

First, a consultation with our nurse aesthetician is scheduled in one of our private consultation rooms.

During this face-to-face consultation, our experienced injector/aesthetician will provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs and based on your facial analysis and health history.

A thorough health history is obtained from an upper provider such as a Nurse Practitioner, a Physician Assistant or a Physician via telemedicine or face to face consult before any treatment can be performed.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM BOTOX/DYSPORT

For some patients receiving Botox/Dysport injections has been reported to feel a lot like a pinch, this varies depending on the patient.
The most common Botox/Dysport side effects at injection sites include:

  1. Redness
  2. Swelling
  3. Bleeding

You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results that can last up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
These injectables are not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return to a pre-treatment state.

WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE GETTING BOTOX/DYSPORT

  • Alcohol: Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)
  • Avoid: Avoid anti-inflammatory/blood thinning medications, if possible for a period of 2 weeks before treatment. Medications and supplements such as aspirin, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve and other NSAIDS have a blood thinning effect and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.
  • Special Day: Schedule your Dermal Filler and Botox appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the Botox/Dysport injections will take approximately 4 to 7 days to appear. Also bruising and swelling may be apparent in that time period.
  • Discontinue Retin-A 2 days before and 2 days after treatment.
  • Reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance if you have a rash, cold sore or blemish on the area.
  • Health History: If you have a history of cold sores please let us know, an anti-viral medication prior to treatment can be prescribed.
  • Food: Be sure to have a good breakfast, including food and drink before your procedure. This will decrease the chances of lightheadedness during your treatment.
  • Pregnant: You are not a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you are prone to bruising or swelling taking Arnica tablets 48 hours prior to injections helps the healing process.

 

AFTER CARE INSTRUCTION FOR BOTOX/DYSPORT INJECTIONS

  • After your treatment you can resume your day.
  • Do NOT manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment. Do NOT receive facial/ laser treatments or microdermabrasion after Botox/Dysport injections for at least 10 days. Ask your provider if you are not sure about the time frame of certain services.
  • Rest: Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after your Botox/Dysport treatment. This will prevent the Botox/Dysport from tracking into the orbit of your eye and causing drooping eyelid.
  • Results: It can take approximately 4 to 7 days for results to be seen. If the desired result is not seen after 2 weeks of your treatment you may need additional Botox/Dysport. You are charged for the amount of product used. Therefore, you will be charged for a product used during any touch-up or subsequent appointments.
  • Exercise: Do NOT perform activities involving straining, heavy lifting, or vigorous exercise for 6 hours after treatment. This will keep the Botox/Dysport in the injected area and not elsewhere.
  • Be Gentle: When washing your face within the 1st 24 hours, GENTLY scrub.
  • For Discomfort: You may take Tylenol.
  • Side Effects: bruising and swelling are normal, applying topical Arnica cream/gel can help reduce the appearance.
