Botox is most often used on forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the outside corner of the eye) and frown lines (wrinkles between the eyes). Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox. The Botox procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required, but can be used if patient desires. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles. Botox results are visible typically seven to ten days after treatment, but for complete result we suggested waiting the recommend full two weeks. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
The effects from Botox will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. That is why we recommend coming in every 3 months for your next Botox treatment and not to wait until the full effects of Botox is gone, because the muscles are being trained to stay relaxed.
Dysport: Dysport injections work quite well and the results last 3-4 months before the product wear off. Patients often do it again right away. And depending on the patient, he or she can see results right away. But if the wrinkles have been there for a long time, it can take weeks or months for the results to be noticeable. It is always important to make sure the #Botox or other product is injected by a doctor or licensed nurse. By using these products do require a bit of training and things can go wrong. The most common side effect is tiny bruise at the site of injection. Dysport is particularly used in the upper half of the face, where there are wrinkles created over time by moving muscles in the area. Furrowing your brown or scrunching up your forehead may be expressive during conversation, but it also creates wrinkles.
