Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX or Dysport?

By September 28, 2016 Skin Care No Comments


Thinking of Trying Injectables to Remove Unwanted Facial Lines?

If you aren’t entirely happy with what you see when you look in the mirror, you’re probably considering what you can do to look younger and more attractive, right? As expression lines creep in around your mouth, nose, eyes, and brow, you may be wondering if BOTOX is a good choice for you or if there’s a better solution. Let’s take a closer look at BOTOX and Dysport injections and what they treat. With this information, you should have a better idea of whether or not you’re a good candidate for one of these rejuvenating treatments.

BOTOX and Dysport Relax Away Lines and Wrinkles

BOTOX and Dysport are two brand names for very similar formulas. These injections are made from a pure form of the botulinum A toxin, and when injected into the skin, they relax and partially paralyze the muscles in that area. We should note that BOTOX and Dysport do not damage the muscles of your face. Rather, they target the nerves that signal the brain to move those muscles. Furthermore, the procedure is not permanent. Generally patients come back to see us every three to four months, but this timing varies from patient to patient.

How does this help make you look younger and prevent the formation of future lines and wrinkles? Basically, the skin around your eyes, mouth, and brow is very thin and delicate. Years of smiling, laughing, frowning, and squinting will pull at that skin over and over again, causing it to stretch and wrinkle.

When you take away the ability to make those extreme facial expressions, you immediately relax away some of those lines and wrinkles. And, because you cannot make those expressions, you will not continue to wear those lines and wrinkles into your face, so you’ll actually prevent the formation of new wrinkles.

For many patients, BOTOX or Dysport injections are all that’s needed to begin looking younger and more attractive. Without any surgery or invasive procedures, you can see a significant difference starting immediately after your injections.

Treating Deeper Lines and Wrinkles

If you’ve developed some deeper lines and wrinkles, they may not completely disappear with a BOTOX or Dysport injection. This doesn’t mean that you simply have to live with those lines and wrinkles, though. Instead, you can opt for one or a combination of several treatments. Dermal injections will fill in those wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smooth and soft. Microdermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, and other facial treatments can also help smooth your skin and give you a younger, more vibrant complexion, as well.

You Could Be a Candidate

If you’re unhappy with the expression lines and wrinkles you see popping up across your face, you could be a candidate for BOTOX or Dysport injections. Depending on how deep your wrinkles are and where they are located, you may require a single injection or multiple injections. Because Dr Assad uses microcannulas instead of needles, these injections are minimally uncomfortable and come with very little risk of bruising or swelling.
