What Is Botox® or Dysport® ?
Both Botox® or Dysport® are neurotoxin derived from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. The difference between the two types of BotulinumtoxinA is very subtle due to the difference in the subunits that make up the neurotoxin protein complex. Both types of injections work by temporarily weakening over active muscles which results in reduction in muscular contractions. these muscles. This in turn results in a reduction of skin folding movement which creates rhytids commonly known as wrinkles in the skin. This treatment can take up to 2 weeks for full effect. Botox will gradually take effect over 7-10 days with optimum result at 2 weeks. If this is your first Botox injection, we recommend scheduling a follow up appointment 2 weeks after your injections.
What to Expect?
The treated area is pain free for the first several hours after the treatment. This is normal; however, after the first 24 hours the area may become painful and slightly swollen due to micro bruising. You may have redness and/or skin bumps over the injection sites. Although rare, infection at the treatment site is always possible. Some individuals experience a mild frontal headache due to the injections. This can be treated with increased hydration and one dose of 500 mg of over the counter acetaminophen.
