The effects of aging can leave our skin with wrinkles and fine lines. Although there is no way of stopping this from happening, there are ways to treat these skin concerns. Surgery is not for everyone. While it may leave you with scars, it also requires an extensive recovery period, puts strain on your body, and is very expensive. Alternative methods for anti-aging come in the form of injectables. At Rejuvené MD, we offer Dysport injections and Botox injections. They are both great treatments that offer long-lasting results and require no downtime. Contact us for more information on these injectable treatments.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment. It is designed to reduce the signs of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. It is administered with an injection. It works by relaxing the muscles in your face. These muscles contribute to the development of wrinkles. Botox inhibits these muscle contractions resulting in soft skin that is free from wrinkles. Botox treatment is a neuromodulator that can be used for many types of skin concerns. The procedure is quick and easy.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by being injected into the target area. As it is injected, it gets to work by relaxing the muscles in the target area. Relaxing these muscles prevents the development of wrinkles. Botox injections target the root of the skin concern and eliminate it.
Botox Treatment Sessions
When you schedule a Botox treatment session, you don’t have to take much time out of your day. Botox treatment sessions are short and easy to get through. This is a great option if you lead a busy lifestyle and find it hard to make time for your skincare routine. Botox injections have been described as highly tolerable, meaning there is minimal discomfort. We will always ensure that your Botox treatment is as comfortable as possible. Because Botox is primarily a wrinkle treatment, it can be used along with other skin treatments, such as dermal fillers.
Is There Downtime for Botox?
Another great advantage of Botox is that it does not require any downtime for recovery. Unlike alternative solutions such as surgery, Botox won’t leave you with any wounds that need time to heal or unsightly scarring. After your Botox treatment, you can get back to your normal activities. This includes working, going for a run, and driving yourself around. It is even possible to have your Botox treatment session during your lunch break.
The results you achieve from Botox are natural-looking and long-lasting. Results will vary for each person. You can enjoy these results for up to 6 months. To maintain your results, you can schedule follow-up treatments with us. Follow-up treatments should be done 2 – 3 times a year. This will prolong the results. The effects of Botox are not permanent. This is due to your metabolic system removing the toxin from your body. Once it has been removed, the wrinkles in the target area will return. Even though Botox is not a permanent anti-aging treatment, it is still a popular treatment used by people worldwide.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is an injectable treatment aimed at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead and eyebrows. It is a non-invasive procedure. This treatment has been designed to decrease the repetitive movement of muscles in your face. This results in your skin looking and feeling softer and tighter. Dysport is FDA-approved for the treatment of glabellar lines, which are the most prominent lines that run vertically on your forehead and between your eyebrows. It can also be used to treat some medical conditions. Dysport offers long-lasting results while being a low-risk treatment.
How Does Dysport work?
Dysport belongs to a group of injectables known as neuromodulators, much like Botox. Dysport uses a form of botulinum toxin. It is injected into the target area to temporarily reduce wrinkles by limiting the movement of certain muscles.
Repetitive muscle movement and expressions are the main causes of wrinkles on your face. Other factors contribute to wrinkles, such as genetics and age.
Dysport Treatment Sessions
During your Dysport treatment session, before the injections are administered, we will use a topical anesthetic on the target area. This will reduce any discomfort felt during the procedure. Dysport is usually injected into 5 spots around the target area. Some people report slight pressure during the injection phase. Overall, the process is not painful, and the discomfort is minimal. The procedure is quick and easy. Before you know it, you are done.
Is There Downtime For Dysport?
As mentioned before, Dysport is quick and easy. After your treatment, you will be able to continue with your daily activities. No downtime is required to heal or recover since the treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical. It leaves no scarring and no wounds that need to heal.
Dysport – The Results
In some cases, results can be seen just 2 days after treatment. Most of the time, results are seen immediately. The results can be seen for up to 4 months. They are not permanent and may require follow-up treatments to prolong the results.
