Botox® and Dysport® Treatments
What is Botox® or Dysport®?
Botox® and Dysport® are therapeutic muscle-relaxing agents derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The substance is injected into the face to alleviate signs of stress and aging such as facial wrinkles and frown lines.
Botox® and Dysport® were originally approved by the FDA as a treatment for patients with eye-lid spasms. Doctors found that the wrinkles around the eye also improved and Botox® went on to have many uses for treatment in the face in the aesthetic medicine industry.
How does Botox® or Dysport® work?
Botox® and Dysport® are very safe in that the substance doesn’t directly affect nerves or muscles. Instead, it works by blocking the nerve impulses from the brain relaxing muscle activity. Worry lines and wrinkles smooth and soften, giving the face a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.
Botox® and Dysport® are ideal for treating lips, forehead, around eyes, chin and the large chewing muscles (massetter muscle). But they also have more therapeutic uses such as improvement of headaches in patients with a discreet trigger point, or Bruxism (grinding of the jaws).
How long does Botox® or Dysport® last?
The effects of Botox® and Dysport® usually last 4 to 6 months, but following several treatments the effects may last much longer, up to 8 to 10 months in some cases.
Our approach to Botox® or Dysport® treatment.
Careful and precise placement of Botox® and Dysport® is the key to enhancing your own natural beauty and creating beautiful results. The skill of injecting is that of a medical professional and also that of an artist who is sensitive to the existing aesthetic of your face. We understand your need for discretion and that you may not want anyone to notice that you’ve “had Botox done” and instead want to look rejuvenated and refreshed.
Botox® and Dysport® alleviate severe sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Botox® and Dysport® are an effective treatment for excessive sweating in the underarms and palms (hyperhidrosis). They work by blocking the action of the nerves that supply the sweat glands and stopping the glands that produce sweat.
This treatment is especially recommended for those people who’ve tried everything but can’t get relief even with strong antiperspirants or medication. Not only does the substance alleviate the actual sweat but also reduces body odor (bromhydrosis).
The effects will last several months but some patients are free of excessive sweating for more than 7 months to a year.
Botox® or Dysport® for migraines (severe headaches)
Botox® and Dysport® is a safe, FDA-approved therapeutic treatment for migraines – severe headaches that often disable the sufferer for days at a time. To reduce the pain and duration of migraines the substance is injected into specific sites around the eyes and forehead.
