Botox and Dysport
HOW BOTOX AND DYSPORT WORK
Those wrinkles that deepen over time, such as those around your forehead, eyes, and between your brows, are known as “dynamic wrinkles” and are caused by muscle movement. These wrinkles deepen and leave permanent creases with age and repeated muscle movement. Neuromodulators, such as Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Jeuveau relax these muscles by intercepting muscle movement. Botulinum toxin type A — the active ingredient in these products — is remarkably safe and backed by decades of clinical research.
DYSPORT VS BOTOX
Looking for Dysport or Botox services in Rhode Island? Oceanside Medical is proud to offer our patients both options. Our experienced staff will recommend the choice that’s right for you. While Dysport and Botox injections are both Type A botulinum toxin used for similar purposes, there are a few differences.
Because of their different molecular weight, more units of Dysport are typically used than Botox in a treatment. You’ll find, however, that the cost per unit for each product reflects that.
Dysport generally has a faster time of onset of 24-48 hours, compared to up to a week for Botox.
Dysport tends to diffuse over a wider area than in Botox services. Botox is often preferred for deeper lines that need a more targeted injection solution.
SMOOTH & SUBTLE
Friends and colleagues will ask if you’ve been on vacation, since your wrinkle treatment results will look so natural yet noticeable! Your highly-specialized injector will use a small syringe to safely inject a predetermined amount of neurotoxin (ensuring your “after” is subtle and elegantly smooth) in the precise areas you’d like to focus on, in as little as 10-15 minutes.
You’ll notice the gradual smoothing of lines and wrinkles as your muscles relax over the coming 7-14 days. You’ll find the refreshed look you’ve been seeking — that can last up to three months!
