Patients who are combating the signs of aging are often curious about non-invasive ways of turning back the hands of time on their face. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds can develop due to volume and collagen loss and skin laxity. Boca Raton area patients often want to learn more about cosmetic injectables, which continue to gain popularity with patients interested in anti-aging solutions. Many patients may be advised to consider Botox or Dysport injections in lieu of dermal fillers, or in addition to them.
Botox and Dysport are two brands of neuromodulators. They are fabricated from botulinum toxin type A. These medications are used to reduce muscle contractions. When the solution is injected directly into the muscles they relax, which can smooth out dynamic wrinkles such as those on the forehead, between the eyebrows, or those around the eyes (crows feet).
Botox and Dysport require a few days to show results. This is because the muscle contractions need to be reduced in order for the skin to smooth out. Our doctors will advise patients on how often they will need reinjection to maintain their results, though a single treatment with Botox or Dysport will often last for several months before further treatment is necessary.
The appointment for injections is fast, easy, and affordable. Many patients come in during their lunch break and can leave without interruption in their day. Botox and Dysport may cause some redness and itching at the injection site, but this is minor and short-term.
