You wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and what do you see? Wrinkles around the corners of your eyes. Deep folds running from your nose to your mouth. Creases that seem imprinted on your forehead. These lines affect almost everyone eventually and are primarily the result of facial expressions made throughout the years — from a smile to a laugh to the frown that creeps across your face every time you see them in the mirror. Expression lines are difficult to avoid and just as difficult to accept. Perhaps you have many or only one, but it’s possible to treat them no matter the number.
Botox and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators that stunt muscle movement to smooth unwanted lines and reverse the effects of time. Offered at Peninsula Glow Medical Spa in Monterey, CA, regular Botox or Dysport treatments can be an empowering self-care routine that will help you feel and look years younger. If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation to receive a personalized skincare treatment plan from one of our expert injectors, please give us a call at (831) 233-3143.
Neuromodulators have many cosmetic benefits. If you’re struggling with any of the following signs of facial aging, Botox or Dysport can help:
The molecular size of Dysport is smaller than Botox, which means it spreads more easily. This makes Dysport better at treating large areas, such as the forehead, where spreading can be beneficial. However, Dysport is also more diluted than Botox, which means more doses are needed to achieve equal results. Patients seeking to treat small areas, such as glabellar lines, are often better off with Botox, while patients with larger cosmetic concerns are recommended Dysport.
The effects of Dysport may be noticeable quicker than Botox. Improvements may be seen two to five days after a Dysport treatment, while it may be four to seven days before results are seen with Botox. Patients who are looking to stave off wrinkles quickly before a special event may find Dysport particularly useful.
Treatment with Botox or Dysport requires no downtime. Often referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure,’ neuromodulator injections are well-liked because the treatment can be done quickly, and you can return to work or daily activities immediately afterward. There may be some redness or swelling around the injection site, but this is normal and only temporary.
How long it takes for your results to reveal themselves depends on which product you choose. Your results may last anywhere from three to four months before you will require a touch-up to sustain the benefits of your treatment. Plan to schedule follow-up injections three to four times a year if you’re interested in maintaining your results.
