Botox® / Dysport®
Botox® and Dysport® are FDA-approved medical treatments to help prevent fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial furrows by temporarily freezing facial muscles. Our highly trained staff strategically chooses the dosing based on the muscle mass and strength in the area of concern. This is done in a simple 30-minute appointment with several quick injections, allowing you to return to your daily activities quickly!
Botox and Dysport may be used as preventative medicine when combined with a quality skincare regimen, preventing wrinkles from forming and reducing the need for future invasive procedures. At Dixi’s Medispa, we take pride in listening to our client’s needs and providing customized solutions to meet individual goals.
What is Botox/Dysport?
Botox treats and prevents wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet by blocking nerve signals that tell facial muscles to contract.
When can I see Botox/Dysport results?
You will see results within three to ten days and complete optimization after 14 days.
How long do results last?
Results may vary, but on average, they will last four to six months.
How many treatments will I need?
You will see results after your first appointment. Touch-up appointments can be scheduled for approximately three to six months when you notice movement returning to the treatment area.
What is the difference between filler and injectable neurotoxins?
Filler (Juvéderm) and injectable neurotoxins (Botox/Dysport) work differently to correct signs of aging. Filler works to plump and add volume and “fill in” the lips, cheeks, and forehead, while injectable neurotoxins relax the muscles that cause signs of aging.
Are there side effects with filler and injectable neurotoxins?
Redness, bruising, or swelling is common after your injections. In most cases, these symptoms resolve within two weeks. Although rare, please call our office if you do not see improvement by this time or if your symptoms worsen.
