Understand How Botox Helps
Botox was the original treatment approved by the FDA to help temporarily alleviate the presence of moderate to severe frown lines. Botox works by limiting the ability to make certain facial expressions, smoothing out the lines due to reduced use. This lack of use also prevents additional creases from forming.
Botox and Dysport are the two injectable options we provide at Parasol Dermatology. These two treatments are very similar but have the following individual properties:
- Botox: Botox is appropriate for addressing very specific areas of concern. Once injected, it doesn’t tend to spread very far, so only the target area is affected. When a specific target area needs to be treated, Botox is used.
- Dysport: Dysport is formulated to address a larger area with a single injection. Due to its more diffuse nature, it will produce an effect that is more moderate and wider spread than that achieved with Botox.
These injections have been shown to be effective for crow’s feet, motion lines, necklines, large muscles, facial asymmetry and the 11 lines (the two vertical lines between your eyebrows). They have also been used to treat excessive sweating. Outside of dermatological practices, they have also been used to effectively treat cases of chronic migraines in some patients.
A great part of receiving these injections is their long-lasting effects. Botox and Dysport injections generally last for up to three months. Throughout this time, your muscles are experiencing a degree of retraining. Consistent applications of these treatments can produce longer-lasting results. The most notable lasting results occur after receiving consistent treatments for two years.
Botox is a largely painless procedure, but topical anesthetics are offered on request. We can also use ice to numb the area prior to the injections and utilize distraction techniques to keep your mind off the procedure. There are potential side effects from receiving Botox or Dysport injections, as with any procedure. Thankfully, these are quite rare and typically pass quickly.
Receiving Botox or Dysport At Parasol Dermatology
One aspect that makes these treatments popular is the complete lack of downtime. You won’t have to worry about scheduling time off of work to receive your treatment. Immediately after the procedure, it’s normal to have some slight bruising or swelling, but these tend to fade quickly. Given the quick treatment time and lack of downtime, it’s a great “lunch-break treatment” you can receive in the middle of your day. If you’re looking for opportunities to restore your youthful appearance with a brief visit, call Parasol Dermatology today. Dr. Bolante is looking forward to helping you look your best.
