Botoxwrinkle correction and prevention
How skin ages and wrinkles is a complex process and happens from a combination of many factors. As part of this aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance
Botox®correction and prevention
Botox is an injectable made by Allergan that improves the appearance of frown and forehead lines, crow’s feet that result from age, stress and overactive muscles.* This natural, purified protein, injected in very low doses, relaxes the overactive muscles that cause unwanted facial lines to form.* Botox has been used for more than 11 years to treat one million patients worldwide. Botox has been proven as a safe and effective therapy and approved for cosmetic use by the FDA.*
There are minimal side effects associated with Botox injections, however some patients might experience slight swelling of the treated area.* Following a Botox treatment, the area usually takes about 5-10 days to soften and the results last between 3-5 months or longer if you follow recommendations for maintenance treatments.* A repeat maintenance treatment should be performed after that time.* Over time, patients require less frequent visits as they break the habit of contracting frown lines and other muscles of facial expression.
Dysport®correction and prevention
Dysport is an injectable form of botulinum toxin Type A approved to treat forehead wrinkles and frown lines in the U.S., and has been used to treat neurological disorders outside the United States for more than 15 years.* Initial reports suggest that Dysport may act quicker than Botox.* Botox takes three to five days to work, while Dysport seems to work within one to two days.* In some cases, wrinkles begin to fade as soon as 24 hours after receiving Dysport treatment.* This rapid response could be the deciding factor for anyone looking to improve their appearance before a big social event
