Have you noticed that time and age are quickly robbing you of your youthful glow? Even if you’re only in your 20s or 30s, frown lines, falling brow, and crow’s feet can start to surface. And no one wants to look their age, much less look older than they truly are due to premature aging. Simply cheering at your child’s soccer games, laughing at your favorite movie, smiling through happy events, or even working on your tan will cause you to age quicker than you should.
Luckily for us, we live in an exciting time when you don’t have to put up with the effects of aging! Sure, you could go under the knife for a facelift to treat sagging skin. However, there are excellent non-invasive anti-aging treatments that allow you to recover quickly without the pain of plastic surgery.
Why suffer through premature aging because you enjoy showing your emotions through facial expressions? We can control the formation of lines with neuromodulator injections. Injectables such as BOTOX® and Dysport® are a popular option for women – and men – who want to look younger, and let’s face it, doesn’t everyone want to?!
What are BOTOX and Dysport?
BOTOX and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators. Among other things, they are used to alter nerve impulses, reducing contraction-induced wrinkles. Many people turn to such injections to reduce the appearance of facial aging. Both types of injections produce results within days of treatment with results lasting for several months.
How Do These Injections Work?
These botulinum toxin injections typically work in four stages:
- Forced Muscle Relaxation: The moment when your target problem areas are addressed through botulinum injections
- Muscle Atrophy: The loosening of the tightened, wrinkle-vexed muscles
- Muscle Rehab: When the treated muscle rehabilitates as the injected toxin wears off
- Return of Muscle Function: The formerly contracted muscle will return to full function within 4 to 6 months
Great news – if you are happy with your results, you have several months to enjoy your more youthful appearance and plan for follow-up appointments to maintain your desired look. On the other hand, if you’re not pleased with the results, results still wear off in just a few months. At that point, you can choose a different method such as cosmetic surgery to enhance your appearance.
Also good news, if you’re in your 20s or 30s, neuromuscular injections will most likely give you the fantastic, line- results you want in just one visit. Patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s are still great candidates for injections, but years of sun damage and deep lines and wrinkles don’t just disappear after one visit. You will need multiple visits to accomplish your desired look, as well as regular maintenance.
The bad news? Results are temporary and last only a few months. You need regular injections to be able to root for your kid’s team or spend a joyous day sunning at the beach without fear of wrinkles. However, since the injections are safe, you can feel to show your emotions as long as you return regularly for treatment.
Similarities of Dysport and BOTOX for Wrinkles
Dysport and Botox are both a form of botulinum type A that are used to relax overactive facial muscles. Although Dysport only earned its FDA approval for use in the US in 2009, it has been in successful use in Europe for just as long as BOTOX has been used in the States. Both types of injections accomplish the same beauty goals with results that last for a comparable amount of time.
Advantages of Dysport Over BOTOX
At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Boynton Beach, we prefer the use of Dysport injections to help you obtain the rejuvenated look you desire. Here’s why:
- Dysport results are noticeable slightly sooner than BOTOX results, and results may even last slightly longer.
- Dysport accomplishes the same results using only about half the injected volume as Botox.
- The results may have a wider field effect than BOTOX.
3 Reasons to Get Dysport Neuromuscular Injectables in Boynton Beach
While there are many purposes to get Dysport injections, including the advantages above, here are 3 excellent reasons:
- It is easily tolerated, with very minimal, if any, pain, bruising, or swelling.
- There is little to no downtime afterward, so you can jump right back into your normal activities afterward.
- Perhaps most importantly, your improved look is gradual instead of all at once, so no one will ever know you had anything done. Your friends will comment on how you look so well rested and it will remain your secret that you had Dysport injections.
While some people openly share about the anti-aging treatments they receive, others like to keep it under wraps. With Dysport, if you don’t want to let the cat out of the bag, you don’t have to! When your smile lines or crow’s feet fade as the effects of Dysport take hold, you simply look more refreshed and relaxed, as if you spent the weekend at the spa being pampered.
