Neurotoxins (Botox and Dysport)

arrow down

Dysport and Botox are neurotoxins that present great options to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas like the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows. These dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movements over time, such as frowning, squinting, or raising the eyebrows, and can become more prominent with age. By relaxing the underlying muscles, wrinkles appear diminished and give the skin a smoother, more youthful look. The frequency of treatments depends on individual factors such as metabolism, muscle strength, and the desired longevity of results. Generally, injections are administered every three to six months to maintain optimal results.

Personal goals and preferences play a significant role in deciding whether to undergo Botox or Dysport treatment. Dysport has a faster onsite time and larger spread of the neurotoxin. You may be seeking a subtle enhancement to your appearance, aiming to look more refreshed and youthful, or you may desire a more dramatic change. Please communicate your specific cosmetic goals with your healthcare provider to ensure that your expectations align with the potential outcomes of either treatment.
