Anti Wrinkle FAQ

While some patients think all wrinkles can be treated with Botox® or Dysport®, this isn’t accurate. Because they work by relaxing (and therefore smoothing) facial muscles, these injections are most effective for wrinkles that are caused by tensed muscles due to repeated facial expressions. These include crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead creases.

One of my patients’ favorite aspects of Botox® and Dysport® injections is how convenient they are for facial rejuvenation. The treatment only takes about 5 minutes to perform, and it doesn’t require any downtime. Many patients find it easy to have their procedure during one of their lunch breaks.

Because the injections are working with your body’s natural processes, it takes about 24-48 hours for the results to begin appearing, and they should reach their full effect within a week of your treatment. The results will generally last 3-4 months, though this will vary from patient to patient.

Botox® and Dysport® are two companies’ versions of the same product. However, Dysport® is more highly purified, and in my own experience, it tends to have a longer-lasting effect and to be more effective in preventing the muscle contractions that cause future wrinkles to develop.

While there is a risk of potential side effects like temporary muscle weakness, bruising, or a headache from Botox® and Dysport®, the risk is very low. It’s important to note, though, that this risk increases dramatically when your injections are performed by someone who is less experienced and poorly trained. To ensure that your injections are as safe as possible, only get your treatment from a licensed with extensive experience.
