BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
Some people say “age lines” give a person character or express the years of experience they’ve had. We know better. BOTOX® Cosmetic in our Eugene, Oregon, practice, and its more recent alternative Dysport®, are excellent options for women and men who don’t want their faces to show all of those “years of experience.” With these simple treatments, you can continue to gain experience and character without worrying about pesky frown lines and “crow’s feet” giving away your age.
These compounds are a neurotoxin treatment that targets the overactive muscles that cause wrinkles. It allows the muscles to relax and let your skin fall back to a smoother, more youthful state. It softens muscle contractions that are the core of “age lines” by blocking the chemicals released that cause the contractions.
This is a non-surgical procedure that can be completed in as little as ten minutes without any downtime. The simplicity of the procedure makes BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® a wonderful adjunct to surgical facial procedures such as facelifts and eyelid surgery. Men and women alike love the results that they can get with either compound.
Areas often treated with BOTOX and Dysport include:
- Frown lines found on the forehead.
- “Crow’s feet” found at the sides of the eyes.
- Eyebrow drooping can be gently lifted with the use of BOTOX.
- Wrinkles and drooping around the mouth.
While BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport have many similarities, they do differ slightly. Patients often report seeing results faster with Dysport than with BOTOX. Dysport has also been shown to cover a larger area than BOTOX, but treatments require more Dysport use than BOTOX to achieve the same results.
Ultimately, finding out which product is right for each individual is a decision that they and their doctor will make together based on a person’s rejuvenation goals.
If you are experiencing a loss of volume or shape of your skin, dermal fillers may be the right solution for you. These fillers are designed for more severe, deeper wrinkles such as from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Injecting fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvederm® Ultra/Ultra Plus, or Prevelle can restore a foundation to your skin giving bringing back the smooth, natural looking face of years past.
Neurotoxins such as BOTOX® and Dysport® can be used in conjunction with fillers to help you achieve your facial rejuvenation goal.
If you’ve always considered a facial rejuvenation procedure but want to avoid invasive surgical procedures that can have you down recovering for any length of time, cosmetic injectables may be for you.
