What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is a quick, versatile, injectable solution to soften lines and wrinkles around the face and neck. FDA-approved, Botox is an excellent alternative to serious surgical treatments for women and men who wish to smooth out lines and wrinkles in the face and neck without an invasive procedure.
Botox – and the alternative brand Dysport – is a form of a purified protein peptide called botulinium toxin type A. Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein filler that temporarily relaxes the muscles that form wrinkles at the injection site, smoothing the skin and providing a younger-looking appearance.
Why choose Botox Injections?
Botox is a safe and non-invasive treatment alternatives for those who wish to eliminate lines and and soften wrinkles from the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), around the brow (frown lines) and the sides of the nose (bunny lines), upper and lower lips, and more. The treatment requires only a few minutes and can be performed in a doctor’s office with no anesthesia. Patients typically notice an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles within three or seven days, and results will last three to four months.
As doctors experienced in using Botox, Rye Brook cosmetic dermatologists, Doctors Michelle and Dale Abadir an find that patients appreciate the minimal pain and invasiveness of Botox and Dysport injections versus surgical procedures like facelifts. Rather than requiring weeks of recovery time, the procedure is performed in minutes with no downtime.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Botox or Dysport is an excellent option for people who wish to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines in the forehead or around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Neck bands can be softened using these marvelous tools. Women who are pregnant or nursing and people who have a disease affecting the nerves and muscles should not use Botox or Dysport.
Botox is also an excellent treatment option for people who suffer from hyperhydrosis, cervical distonia, eyelid spasms, strabismus and some forms of headaches.
Botox vs. Dysport
Botox and Dysport injections are two different brands of the same form of botulinium toxin type A that cosmetic dermatologists use to treat wrinkles. The two brands have a similar effect on the appearance of wrinkles, but many patients and doctors have slightly different experiences using them.
Many find that Dysport takes effect faster than Botox. While Botox typically takes around three days for patients to see results, many who choose Dysport notice an improvement in their appearance within one day. The results of Dysport may also tend to last longer than Botox – up to six months to a year versus three to four months with Botox, though it is not typical. The effect of Dysport may spread out more than Botox, though the effect is subtle.
