Botox Q&A

What are Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are wrinkle-smoothing medications that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These popular neuromodulators can rejuvenate aging skin without downtime, allowing you to return to your normal routine immediately. 

Botox and Dysport offer temporary results, so you can choose to continue treatments once the medication wears off. You can also combine Botox or Dysport injections with other popular wrinkle treatments, such as fillers, to enhance your results.

How do Botox and Dysport work?

As a neuromodulator, Botox targets the nerve signals that control muscle movement. The expert injectors at Bright Wellness deliver Botox into the muscles beneath your wrinkles to prevent contractions. 

The muscle is temporarily paralyzed, so the skin on top can’t crease. This ability to stop muscle movement allows Botox to treat and prevent wrinkles.

What types of wrinkles can Botox or Dysport treat?

Botox and Dysport can address dynamic wrinkles, which result from repeated muscle movement. Also called expression lines, these creases tend to develop over time. Each time you squint, smile, or furrow your brow, the skin folds.

Most dynamic wrinkles form in the upper one-third of your face, particularly around the eyes and forehead, but they can also affect the mouth and neck.

Examples of dynamic wrinkles include:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Bunny lines (around the nose)
  • Platysmal bands

Botox can’t treat static wrinkles, which form when your skin loses volume. Bright Wellness has expert injectors who can replace lost volume with dermal fillers.

What can I expect from Botox or Dysport?

Botox and Dysport injections take only a few minutes and rarely require downtime. The team may apply a numbing cream to relieve any discomfort before your injections. Next, they inject the medication into the predetermined areas to soften lines and wrinkles. 

You may experience minor bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection site, but these side effects dissipate within hours.

How long do Botox or Dysport treatments last?

Botox and Dysport typically wear off after 3-6 months.* You can return to Bright Wellness for maintenance injections if you want to extend your results. Along with fillers, the team offers facials and other aesthetic treatments to revitalize your appearance.

Bright Wellness offers free consultations if you have questions or concerns about Botox or Dysport. Call the office today or book an appointment online to learn more about Botox.
