Is BOTOX & Dysport Safe?
Using BOTOX or Dysport to treat wrinkles is a completely safe procedure when done by an aesthetic expert trained in Injectables. BOTOX is FDA-approved for treating fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, brows, cheeks, and mouth, as well as other areas susceptible to premature aging.
How Does BOTOX & Dysport Work?
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold and form what’s known as the angry 11’s. When you smile and squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX is injected into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. BOTOX blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine. This reduces and freezes muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles to form. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines for the entire time your treatment is active. By relaxing facial muscles, your frown lines, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging are visibly smoother for a more voluminous and youthful appearance. BOTOX is actually preventative, because as long as your treatment is active, you are preventing new lines and wrinkles from forming and actually allowing your skin to heal and smooth itself.
Why Choose BOTOX Injections?
Anyone wanting to smooth fine lines on their face and prevent new wrinkles from occurring is a good candidate for BOTOX or Dysport. Injections are given in 10-15 minutes, with no downtime afterward. Botox is known as a “lunchtime” treatment because you can easily get treated on your lunch break and return to work or your day immediately after with no visible evidence you had anything done.
