Diamonds used to be a girl’s best friend, but these days, neurotoxin wrinkle relaxers like Botox and Dysport are more like it – for a good reason!
Despite its name, neurotoxins are considered very safe. You will see visible results in just 3-10 days, and it prevents more wrinkles from forming in the long-term. Say goodbye to looking tired, angry, and sad. Say hello to looking more refreshed and youthful!
These wrinkle relaxers can also be used in face slimming and a subtle lip augmentation known as a “lip flip.”
Why use Neurotoxins?
As we get older, our face undergoes remodeling. Bones gets adsorbed, fat gets redistributed, muscles atrophy and gravity exert its downward pull. Sun damage also causes the skin to thin out faster. Think of aesthetic procedures as defying aging in layers.
When is Botox or Dysport used?
Neurotoxins block the release of substances needed to contract muscles which are attached to the skin. Contraction pulls the overlying skin and forms wrinkles. Temporarily relaxing the muscles causes the overlying skin to get stretched. This way, fewer fillers are used and lasers and peels reach the skin more efficiently for better results.
How much is used?
Definitely, Microneedling, Chemical Peels and laser treatments can diminish lines, age spots and other blemishes but resistant wrinkles definitely require Botox or Dysport. In fact, “the earlier, the better” applies petty much to wrinkles. You’ll be needing less and requiring fewer appointments over time.
Though wrinkle relaxers are almost a byword in the aesthetic industry, some clients tend to put it off until the furrows are more prominent; fearful of more sagging once the effects wear off. Not true!!! Your face is dynamic and resilient, with complex structures that aren’t as easily inflated or deflated like a balloon.
Botox relaxes the muscles underneath facial wrinkles, thus smoothing the overlying skin. Botox is one of the best non-invasive aesthetic treatments out there. It’s also virtually painless!
Dysport works identically to Botox. Sometimes Dysport begins to act faster than Botox due to its small molecule size, but this will vary from person to person. The ratio of Dysport to Botox units is generally 3:1, so if you needed 20 units of Botox in your forehead you would need about 60 units of Dysport!
Botox or Dysport injections effectively treat forehead fine lines, the 11’s between the brows, crow’s feet, and bunny lines. A small amount can also correct downturned lip corners and lift the brows. Last but not least, Botox can reverse time by decreasing the masseter size which causes the face to appear more angular. It’s an effective, fast, easy, virtually painless and safe way to erase those years – and improve not just how you look but how how you feel when you see a more glorious, confident, and youthful self staring back at you in the mirror!
