If you’re searching for a temporary yet impressive way to turn back the hands of time, injectable treatments like Botox® and Dysport® are wonderful options. The team of practitioners at Ageless Med Spa in Katy, Texas, offers top-quality injectable treatments to help you reach your aesthetics goals. Call or click today to learn more and get started.
Both medications are formulated from a natural substance called Botulinum toxin. Despite its name, the volume used in medical aesthetics is carefully controlled and perfectly safe.
Botox and Dysport work by temporarily preventing treated muscle fibers from moving through their full range of motion. Your muscles will still be able to create normal facial expressions, but won’t pull your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Botox is approved for temporarily reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, the lines that extend in a starburst pattern from the outer corners of your eyes, especially when you smile or laugh. Botox is also used to treat horizontal forehead lines as well as frown lines, the furrows that develop between the eyebrows.
Dysport is also approved for use in frown lines. Both medications are often used off-label for treating lines, folds, and wrinkles in other areas of the face.
Both of these medications have excellent safety track records. Botox has been used in medical applications for decades and is the subject of hundreds of clinical trials and studies. Dysport was FDA-approved for aesthetic applications a bit later than Botox, around 15 years ago.
When it comes to Botox, Dysport, and injectable treatments like dermal fillers, the most important safety consideration is where you choose to have your treatments performed. The team at Ageless Med Spa has the medical training and experience needed to deliver injections using the highest safety standards.
The temporary nature of Botox and Dysport is one of the most appealing things about these types of injectable aesthetic treatments. Both options allow you to achieve a more youthful and well-rested appearance without the risks and recovery time of cosmetic surgery.
Both Botox and Dysport create results within 48 hours. Botox results last around four months, while Dysport results wear away a bit faster, between three and four months. With both types of treatment, your lines and wrinkles will begin to slowly return as the effects wear off. You can then choose whether to return for a new round of injections.
