As we age, lines and wrinkles seem inevitable. Eventually, we look in the mirror one day and notice that we don’t look like ourselves. Instead, we look tired, angry, or sad, even when we’re happy inside. But there’s good news. You can fight back against signs of aging, and BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments can help.
Lines and wrinkles can form because of muscle movement – every time you smile or make another expression, you move muscles. As you age and your skin’s regenerative properties slow down, the wrinkles you see when you smile will remain in place even when your muscles relax. These are the lines and wrinkles that make your expression appear sad and angry when you aren’t.
BOTOX® and Dysport® are injectable treatments that your doctor inserts into strategic muscles that cause these wrinkles. The treatment relaxes the muscle to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the surface. The result is a smoother, younger-looking appearance that no longer looks tired or sad.
The treatment helps minimize lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and lines on the neck. It has even been used to successfully reduce migraine headaches.
The procedure is safe and effective and requires no anesthesia. You will only feel a very mild pin-prick from a very fine needle. There’s no downtime, and you can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment. Your doctor will give you specific aftercare instructions following the procedure.
Most healthy adults, both men and women, who want to reduce visible lines and wrinkles are good candidates for the treatment. The doctor will assess your individual needs and your overall health to determine if BOTOX® and Dysport® treatments are right for you.
Some people may experience mild bruising, but this goes away quickly. Visible results are evident within 24 hours, and over the next five days, you’ll see more improvement as your lines and wrinkles fade. The procedure lasts four months or longer, with some people seeing results for a full year. Your doctor will determine the number of treatments necessary to reach your goals, which varies by individual.
