Botox and Dysport are both purified proteins that effectively block muscle contraction, although each has slight differences in their molecular makeup.
Botox is owned by Allergan, and Dysport is owned by Galderma.
Botox and Dysport accomplish the same goal and cost the same per unit. Our aesthetic injectors can discuss which product would be best for you!
Botox & Dysport are neuromuscular blocking agents, which means they cause paralysis of the injected muscle by preventing the release of acetylcholine from motor nerve terminals. The muscle strengthens again as the nerves regenerate.
At your first appointment, our aesthetic injectors will do a full-face assessment and discuss your areas of concern. The provider will discuss how many units per treatment area are needed and the overall cost of treatment before injecting.
The needle is extremely small so it feels like nothing more than a pin prick, or a bee sting.
Botox usually takes 7-10 days to see full result, while Dysport seems to kick in a little sooner at 4-7 days. You should give both types of neuromodulator two weeks before scheduling a “touch up”.
Results typically last 3–4 months
There is always a possibility of bruising when needles puncture the skin, but any bruising is usually very small or none at all.
Occasionally, patients have a headache after injection; you can take Tylenol for this!
Undesired impairment of muscle function may also occur, but is usually associated with inappropriate dosage. -- We use a “less is more” approach at Lett Aesthetics; we can always add a few more if needed!
We advise all patients to not lay flat, bend over with head down, lift heavy objects, or strain for 4 hours. We recommend not exercising for 24 hours.
That is a tough question. Lett Aesthetics always treats by assessing your muscle movement at each visit. -- Sometimes the movement can be minimal, so you may need the same number of units. Less may be used if you have been consistently treated with neuromodulator every 3-4 months.
Yes, you can be treated with neuromodulators and fillers at the same visit. Just make sure to notify our Aesthetic Liaison when booking your appointment so that we have enough time to do both!
Your muscle movement will return to your baseline and you could start to notice the presence of dynamic wrinkles again.
We strive for a very natural look at Lett Aesthetics. We believe that you look like you and prevent wrinkles at the same time!
Botox and Dysport injections should not be used in pregnancy or when breastfeeding.
