BOTOX AND DYSPORT
If you’re trying to look younger, prevent aging, tighten your skin and get rid of annoying wrinkles, Windermere Dental & Medical Spa has two great options for you: BOTOX® and Dysport. These safe and effective injectables are used around the world as one of the most popular ways to prevent and fight wrinkles and give your face a youthful re-fresh.
Let our medical team explain to you the difference between these two name brands and show you how to get the face you’ve always wanted without the use of plastic surgery.
BOTOX®: A NAME YOU CAN TRUST
BOTOX® is an FDA approved way to smooth out wrinkles caused by aging and our everyday movements. Wrinkles on your forehead and around the eyes are mostly caused and made worse by expression. So BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles around these areas and smoothing out the skin.
The areas around our eyes, forehead and mouth are the most expressive areas of the face and therefore most prone to these types of wrinkles. The most common form of these wrinkles are the crow’s feet that appear around the eyes, but BOTOX® is also perfect for treating other areas such as:
- Forehead Creases
- Crow’s Feet
- Creases Between the Eyes
- Neck Bands
- Bunny Lines
- Masseter/Temporalis (muscles responsible for TMJ)
- Chin Dimpling
- Upper Lip
- Down Turned Corners of the Mouth
- Contouring the Jawline
- Lifting the Brows
- Excessive armpit, hand or feet sweating
- Gummy smile
Because we never stop emoting, the appearance of wrinkles are made worse as we age. It’s up to you and the experts at Windermere Dental & Medical Spa to determine which areas would benefit most from BOTOX®.
DYSPORT®: A NEW ALTERNATIVE
While it has been in available in Europe for a while, Dysport is relatively new to the United States. Here at WDS we love disport! It is widely marketed as a BOTOX® alternative because it is used to treat the same problems, and it has the same results, but it does have some subtle differences.
One of the biggest differences is Dysport’s protein-rich formula. These extra proteins give the body less reason to fight against the formula and could lead to longer and quicker results. The dilution of the product is also greater. Having a higher dilution factor means the formula spreads further after injection. When the formula spreads more, there is the need for fewer injections.
There are other differences between the two that encompass everything from how long the formulas last, to how quickly results are seen and more. When you call and set up your consultation, we will discuss the differences between the two brands and figure out which injector is right for you.
WHAT IS INJECTION TREATMENT LIKE?
The great thing about BOTOX® and Dysport is their ability to be administered in only a few minutes. This means you can easily fit an appointment around your busy work schedule…sometimes even the same day! Unlike plastic surgery where there is a long recovery time, these injections feature only minimal discomfort and practically no recovery time.
Even though the recovery time and side effects are small, there are still precautions you should take after your appointment. You’ll want to avoid touching or overly manipulating the area around the injections, and also avoid prolonged periods of looking down so that the solution is evenly distributed around the face.
There’s a reason why BOTOX® and Dysport are the go-to solutions for wrinkles. They’re easy, they’re effective and they work. It’s one of the few treatments for wrinkles that can be done on the same day with little-to-no recovery time needed.
