What is BOTOX®/DYSPORT®?
BOTOX®/DYSPORT® is a cosmetic injectable used to decrease facial wrinkles and increase facial rejuvenation. It is made from the neurotoxin bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, which freezes muscle movement by blocking the signals the nerves send to the muscles. How does that help you from looking older? In the hands of an experienced aesthetic medical professional, BOTOX®/DYSPORT® can be injected into specific muscles that activate the fine lines around your eyebrows, eyes, and forehead. By temporarily paralyzing those muscles, the fine lines on your face won’t appear whenever you talk or with a change in facial expressions. This also allows for the prevention of permanent lines around your eyes, eyebrows, and forehead.
Are BOTOX®/DYSPORT® Injections Safe?
BOTOX®/DYSPORT® injections are a relatively safe procedure. At Diamond Works MedSpa, we have trained Aesthetic Medical professionals that take all the necessary precautions to prevent any complications.
What Happens During a BOTOX®/DYSPORT® Treatment?
The injections take less than 30 minutes, and you won’t need any anesthesia. If you’re squeamish about needles, your doctor may apply a topical numbing cream to help calm your nerves. It’s not a painful procedure due to how small the needles are, but you can experience some mild discomfort or soreness that will go away in just a few minutes.
Does BOTOX®/DYSPORT® Work on All Types of Skin?
Yes, BOTOX®/DYSPORT® works on all types of skin. Most women start to notice fine lines and wrinkles in their 30s. Younger patients may begin treatment early to prevent the formation of permanent facial wrinkles down the line.
Are There Side Effects & Risks?
There are usually no side effects BOTOX®/DYSPORT®. In mild cases, there is some bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Some people may experience headaches, muscle pain, or flu-like symptoms that go away after one or two days. Taking Aspirin will help. In rare cases, there can be complications like drooping eyes, crooked smiles, or drooling, but this is usually caused by fake injections or applications by an inexperienced or unlicensed aesthetician. To avoid these risks, always get your injections from credible medical professionals in a licensed facility.
What are the Benefits of BOTOX®/DYSPORT® Treatments?
The treatments are considered a non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. While facelifts require hospitalization, anesthesia (and its corresponding risks), and weeks of bruising and recovery time, BOTOX®/DYSPORT® is a safer and more affordable alternative to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX®/DYSPORT® is also a more natural approach to treating fine lines and wrinkles. Instead of altering the appearance of the face, the product simply freezes the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles that get deeper as we age.
Can You Get BOTOX®/DYSPORT® While Pregnant?
While the science is inconclusive about the safety of cosmetic injectables during pregnancy, we believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to any elective treatments while you’re pregnant. At Diamond Works MedSpa, we do not offer cosmetic injectables like BOTOX®/DYSPORT® to our patients during any stage of pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
When Will I See Results From BOTOX®/DYSPORT® Treatments?
Your treatments might start showing results as soon as 48 hours. The full effect can take anywhere between 3 and 14 days, depending on the location of the injections.
How Long Do Injections Last?
Injections usually last three to five months for aesthetic purposes. If used for medical purposes, it can last two to three months. We recommend coming in for treatments every three to four months. It is important to know the exact date of your previous treatment before going for the next.
