Book your appointment online or call the office to arrange your consultation.
What are Dysport and Botox?
Dysport® and Botox® are injectable treatments that help smooth out fine lines and dynamic wrinkles, resulting from repeated muscle contractions or movements.
When your provider injects the treatment into a specific area of your face, it can cause the muscles to stop contracting and prevent the skin on top from creasing.
What is the difference between Dysport and Botox?
Dysport and Botox work in different ways to treat similar cosmetic concerns. Dysport can also treat signs of aging, even though Botox is well-known and a preferred choice for many people. The formula of Dysport is also more fluid in nature than Botox, making it an excellent treatment for wider areas.
If you’re no longer seeing results from using Botox, Dysport is a great alternative. Many people respond well to Dysport, and, in some cases, better than Botox.
However, whether you choose Dysport or Botox, they can help with any existing wrinkles you have and also prevent new lines from forming.
What can Dysport and Botox treat?
Dysport and Botox can treat similar cosmetic concerns, including:
- Dynamic wrinkles
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Crow’s feet
- Gummy smile
- Glabellar lines (between the eyebrows)
- Platysmal bands in the neck
Depending on your aesthetic goals, your provider at Align Body & Wellness can recommend a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
What is the process for getting Dysport and Botox?
Before injecting Dysport or Botox, your provider makes sure you’re comfortable by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This helps minimize any discomfort or pain you might experience during the process.
Dysport and Botox injections are quick, in-office treatments. There’s little to no downtime afterward, so you can return to your normal activities following your injection. You might experience some bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this quickly resolves for most people.
However, it’s important that you don’t rub your skin where you got the injection because it can spread the treatment to other areas.
How long do the results last for Dysport and Botox?
While Dysport typically appears for most people within a few days*, Botox results appear within one to two weeks*. The full results of these treatments last about three to four months*, but they both fade gradually over time.
If you’re seeing the results fade, you can return to Align Body & Wellness for follow-up maintenance treatments.
