Wrinkle Relaxers Q & A

What are Dysport® and Botox®?

Dysport® and Botox® are prescription injectables made of a purified form of botulinum toxin. Rather than adding volume to your face as dermal fillers do, they temporarily relax the muscles responsible for moderate to severe wrinkles:

  • Frown lines between the brows 
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • At the outer corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet

As your muscles relax, your skin begins to smooth out, releasing wrinkles, lines and creases.  Results of Dysport® or Botox® injections last for 3-4 months, rejuvenating your facial features and restoring your youthful looks without surgery or the need for downtime.

You can also benefit from routine Dysport® or Botox® injections as part of a preventive skin care routine to reduce your risk factors for developing new frown lines and crow’s feet as you get older.

Am I a good candidate for wrinkle relaxers?

Treatments with Botox® or Dysport® may be right for you if you have moderate to severe frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. 

At Visage MedSpa in Willoughby, Ohio, Karen can determine if a neuromodulator is right for you after an evaluation of your muscle movement and a discussion of your overall cosmetic goals.

Karen creates a treatment plan that focuses on releasing wrinkles and lines while ensuring your results look natural. 

She places injections in very specific areas of your face to address the muscles responsible for creases and wrinkles and follows a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. Karen will also recommend maintenance injections of Botox.

How does Dysport work?

Dysport® works using the exact mechanism of action as Botox® but typically provides faster wrinkle reduction results and for some people, Dysport® can last longer. 

Karen injects Dysport into the muscles along your forehead, between your brows, or at your crow’s feet while ensuring you can still experience normal facial expression and enjoy natural-looking results. For these reasons, Karen prefers Dysport® over Botox®.

Injections of Dysport® can also work preventively, reducing the muscle contractions that well create lines and creases over time. 

In addition to your Dysport®  injections, Karen may also recommend dermal fillers, treatment with collagen stimulators, aesthetic lasers, or a chemical peel to maximize the results of your treatment.

How long do the treatments last?

Botox® and Dysport® typically last 3-4 months. Once you notice your wrinkle relaxer wearing off, you can schedule another treatment at Visage MedSpa. Keeping those muscles relaxed is key to not have those creases and lines become deeper.
