August 3, 2015

Frown lines and crow’s feet are familiar signs of aging that can be easily erased with a simple Botox® or or Dysport treatment.  These procedures are so common that you likely know at least one person who is enjoying a more youthful appearance thanks to Botox® or Dysport. They are safe and can give you beautiful results in a very short time.

Aren’t you just a little curious about Botox® and Dysport?

Here are the 9 things that you really wanted to know about Botox®and Dysport:

  1. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are the only FDA- approved treatments to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
  2. Repeated contractions of the muscles that allow you to frown and squint eventually cause frown lines and crow’s feet.  When Botox® or DySport are injected into these muscles, they become temporarily inactive, creating a smooth, youthful look.
  3. Crow’s Feet – Botox® or Dysprot is injected into 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, reducing activity in the muscle and causing the wrinkles that create crow’s feet to disappear.
  4. Frown Lines – Botox® or Dysport is injected into 5 areas of the forehead. 4 injections are in the corrugator muscles and 1 is in the procerus muscle.  Activity in these muscles is temporarily reduced and fine lines disappear.
  5. Treatments only take 10 minutes. It is often called a “lunchtime” procedure because you can return to work or your usual routine immediately after the treatment.
  6. It is a relatively painless procedure, often compared to “pinch”. Ice or a topical cream can be applied before the procedure if there is any concern about discomfort.
  7. Results appear 72 hours to 10 days after injection and can last up to 4 months.
  8. Your face will not appear frozen after the procedure. You will be able to make normal facial expressions.
  9. Botox® and Dysport are technique-sensitive procedures. The procedure should be performed by a professional who knows exactly what they are doing. This is reflected in the cost. Beware of cheap Botox®  or Dysport – it is often a sign of an unskilled practitioner, bootleg or watered down product.

Botox® and Dysport treatments are simple and affordable procedures with low risks and great results that can help you achieve the younger appearance you are looking for.  If you are considering Botox® or Dysport and would like more information about the procedure, contact the professionals at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.
