What are BOTOX and Dysport?

BOTOX and Dysport are neuromodulators that, when injected, temporarily smooth out dynamic lines that form as a result of repetitive facial contractions.

These lines can alter the facial expression, making one appear tired, sad, or angry, even when in the best of spirits. With no anesthesia, incisions, downtime, or discomfort, BOTOX in Redwood City can revitalize your look for up to 5 months. 

How Do Neuromodulators Work?

BOTOX and Dysport are made with botulinum toxin type A, a compound that temporarily blocks the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This tells the brain to soften and relax certain contracting muscles, providing optimal cosmetic benefits for those struggling with dynamic facial lines. BOTOX and Dysport do not create any permanent changes, however. Once their effects wear off in around 3-5 months, the wrinkles that were there before simply return.

Medical Uses for BOTOX in Redwood City

  • Lazy eye — Failure of the muscles that control eye position
  • Cerebral palsy — Muscles contract the limbs towards the core
  • Hyperhidrosis — Excessive perspiration caused by overactive sweat glands
  • Chronic migraines — Intense headaches that can be debilitating
  • Bladder dysfunction — Urinary incontinence caused by an overactive bladder
  • Eye twitching — Repetitive,involuntary movements in the muscles surrounding the eyes

What is the Difference Between BOTOX and Dysport?

BOTOX and Dysport can both achieve remarkable anti-aging results that last 3-5 months. Some patients see their initial changes faster with Dysport, usually within 2-3 days, whereas with BOTOX it may take up to one week.

BOTOX in Redwood City is around 3 times as potent as Dysport, meaning more Dysport is required to achieve the same results as BOTOX. The price of Dysport injections is typically lower than for BOTOX, however, so the tradeoff is well-managed.

What are the Benefits of BOTOX?

  • Safe, non-surgical, and FDA-approved
  • No anesthesia or discomfort
  • No recovery time
  • Creates a more youthful, inviting facial expression
  • Smooths away dynamic lines and creases
  • Boosts self-image
  • Results last 3-5 months
  • Can be paired with dermal fillers for a non-invasive facelift

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Neuromodulators?

Good candidates for BOTOX and Dysport are over 18 and are seeking a safe, non-invasive option for reducing stubborn wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. They may wish to refresh their appearance but are not yet ready for a plastic surgery procedure that comes with lengthy downtime.

Patients should not be pregnant or nursing and should not have any allergies to any ingredients in neuromodulators. As with any cosmetic treatment, clients should be mentally and physically healthy in order to undergo their injections of Dysport in Redwood City, and they should have realistic expectations for their results.

What can I expect during my treatment?

To ensure your total comfort throughout your session, our practitioners can numb your skin prior to your injections. An ultra-fine needle is then used to administer the BOTOX or Dysport strategically at carefully chosen points unique to your facial structure. Most patients report a barely noticeable sting as the needle goes in and out but no other discomfort or pain. Once your injections are complete, you are free to immediately return to work, school, shopping, or other normal activities.

What happens after my session?

There is no downtime after treatments of Dysport or BOTOX in Redwood City. This is one of the greatest benefits of neuromodulators. There are few side effects, either, although clients may experience minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites.

You are advised to avoid excessive heat and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours, and you should refrain from touching, rubbing, or scratching your face to prevent the product from migrating to an unintended area.
