Botox & Dysport

Botox & Dysport in Cedar Park, TX

Cosmetic Injections for A Youthful Glow

Cosmetic injections such as Botox & Dysport eliminate wrinkles caused by aging, being outside, facial expression, and many other factors. While a good skin-care routine or in-office treatments like Botox or Dysport, fillers and other skin regeneration treatments can keep your skin looking youthful, wrinkles and fine lines will inevitably start to show on the skin as you age.

During your free consultation at our med spa in Cedar Park, we will discuss how these apply to your look and how best to correct them.

Botox Vs. Dysport: What’s the Difference?

Areas of Botox

Botox and Dysport are both FDA-approved neuromodulators or neurotoxins (forms of botulinum toxin type A) for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. The minimally invasive injectables are equally safe, and both work via the same mechanism. Both are neuromodulators that temporarily paralyze muscles of the face, which reduces wrinkles and smooths skin.

About Botox

Botox works the same way Dysport does. The naturally derived toxin blocks nerve signals to your muscles, which results in a more relaxed and softer-looking face.

Botox injections require little to no downtime. Our doctor may first apply a topical anesthetic to reduce injection-site pain and to treat small areas or fine lines. The number of units needed depends upon the area to be treated and the severity of the wrinkles. Results of Botox may take longer to appear but tends to last longer up to 6 months. Still a temporary solution for wrinkles, however, repeated injections are required to maintain results.

About Dysport

Dysport is a neuromodulator that, like Botox, is derived from the botulinum toxin. It works by temporarily paralyzing muscles. When your muscles relax, wrinkles that are formed by repeated muscular contractions are minimized.

Dysport is injected under the skin to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. It’s not typically used for fine lines. The 11 lines between the eyebrows are commonly the face’s deepest wrinkles, which is why Dysport is frequently used to treat this area.

Which Injection Should You Choose?

When Botox is injected, it stays put in the injection area. This makes Botox a premiere option for treating smaller, more targeted areas around the lips and eyes. Dysport, on the other hand, diffuses into larger areas after being injected, meaning it spreads further away from the injection site. This makes Dysport ideal for treating larger areas, like the forehead, as fewer injections are needed to address a larger treatment area.

Here’s which neurotoxin is best for addressing common facial areas:the Eyes

  • Common wrinkles around the eyes include 11 lines, the two parallel lines that form between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. These are best treated by Dysport which is typically reserved for deeper wrinkles. Crow’s feet are more often treated by Botox which avoids any ‘drift’ of the toxin toward the eyes.Lines
  • Forehead lines are the horizontal lines that extend across the forehead. These are best treated by Dysport, which is recommended for larger areas.
  • Lip lines are the vertical wrinkles above the lip, also known as smoker’s lines. Lip lines require an advanced, precise injection technique. This makes Botox the better choice since the neurotoxin will stay put in the small area into which it was injected.

At times, we may even use both products concurrently during a single treatment session to produce a patients’ desired result most effectively.
