Botox® and Dysport® are some of the most widely known rejuvenation treatments here in the Clear Lake area and worldwide—and for good reason. These advanced injectables have helped millions of people achieve subtle, natural rejuvenation with their ingenious treatment.
Both Botox® and Dysport® essentially work by targeting expression lines, which are the signs of aging that form due to decades of repeated facial movements. With Botox® and Dysport®, frustrating signs of aging like crow’s feet, laugh lines, and frown lines can be softened for a younger, more refreshed look. Botox® and Dysport® are versatile enough to provide patients of all skin tones with the chance to target fine lines and wrinkles and defy signs of aging.
Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulators, meaning they work by disrupting how certain facial muscles respond to nerve signals from the brain. To help soften and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, Botox® and Dysport® perpetually relax the facial muscles that cause expression lines. Once Botox® and Dysport® take effect, patients can enjoy a smoother, more youthful and relaxed look.
While Renew PFC prides itself on offering patients a diverse array of options, having the right person perform the procedure is a more important factor for creating breathtaking results. There are dozens of different facial muscles in the face, and it takes incredible skill and precision to target the right ones. More importantly, it requires an expert injector to make sure the treatment is done in a way that creates long-lasting, yet natural results.
At Renew PFC, we want our patients to have the best product for their concerns, but more importantly, we want them to have the results that are just right for them. We understand that our patients are entrusting us with their care, which is why we take great pains to ensure our patients feel safe and secure; while other practices rely on a physician that merely oversees their procedures off-site, we’re one of the few practices in the area that perform our Botox® injections and Dysport® procedures with experienced licensed providers. With Renew PFC, you can rest assured that your Botox injections results will look as natural and balanced as possible.
What’s the Difference Between Botox® and Dysport®?
Botox® and Dysport® are more alike than they’re different. One important distinction is that Dysport®’s molecules are somewhat smaller than Botox®’s; that smaller size allows the Dysport® molecules to spread a bit farther than larger Botox® molecules. Because it spreads farther, Dysport® is optimal for specific areas on the face. Dysport® also tends to work a day or two faster than Botox®. Depending on the patient, Botox®’s results might last a bit longer than Dysport®’s.
The Procedure for Botox® and Dysport®
One the most remarkable things about Botox® and Dysport® is the fact that their unbelievably safe and convenient. Because they’re injectables, our Botox® patients in Clear Lake can enjoy their results with absolutely no downtime and no recovery period. Patients can even return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. You can truly have a safe, simple, and relatively pain-free treatment that takes less time than a lunch break to perform. After thoroughly analyzing your unique facial features, Renew PFC will create a customized treatment plan created especially for you. On the day of your Botox® and Dysport® treatment, you can choose to have the treatment areas numbed to minimize any discomfort; however, many patients report their Botox® and Dysport® treatments as being relatively painless. The number of shots delivered during any given procedure will depend on a variety of factors like the treatment area and the severity of the wrinkles being treated.
While it might take a week for their full results to appear, Botox® and Dysport®’s results will last an amazing 3-4 months. Of course, this will all depend on the patient and how they react to the treatment. Some of our Botox patients experience small side effects like bruising, swelling, and soreness in the treatment areas, but these small side effects should disappear after a week.
