Botox and Dysport are two injectable drugs within the same class. Both are commonly used for cosmetic purposes as they treat certain wrinkles and fine lines.
Both Botox and Dysport rely on a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin to work. This neurotoxin inhibits the signals from targeted motor nerves, which communicate with your muscles about when to flex. This stops those muscles from flexing while the drug is active within your skin.
During your consultation at Twin Falls Dermatology & Aesthetics, LLC, you discuss your concerns with Laurel and start planning treatment. She decides which injectable is the better choice for you based on your goals, preferences, and medical history.
Botox and Dysport are best known for their ability to treat the following:
Botox and Dysport treat a certain class of wrinkles called dynamic wrinkles, which form over time because of the way your face moves when you speak and make expressions. Your face creases in certain areas, like on your forehead and between your eyes, both voluntarily and involuntarily. By deactivating the responsible muscles, you can smooth out these wrinkles.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. Injectable neurotoxins like Botox can deactivate the overactive sweat glands to stop you from sweating so much.
Laurel informs you when Botox or Dysport is the appropriate option for your dermatological goals.
The results you get from Botox and Dysport are temporary as the neurotoxin eventually dissolves and deactivates. Most people enjoy results from a round of Botox or Dysport injections for about 3-4 months.
If you’re happy with your Botox or Dysport results, you may return to Twin Falls Dermatology & Aesthetics, LLC for a subsequent round of injections. You can get Botox or Dysport repeatedly for as long as you like as long as you have a moderate degree of skin elasticity.
Laurel maps out the placement of your injections to make sure you get consistent results every time. She uses very fine needles to make your visits quick, easy, and comfortable.
