One of the hottest anti-aging commodities right now is Botox & Dysport.
But, what does it do? Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins that are designed to block muscle contractions. Say goodbye to furrowed brows! This injection treatment can also treat and prevent not only wrinkles, but also help to treat any medical condition that results in a spasm, migraines or extreme sweating.
Both Botox and Dysport have a similar main ingredient of trace protein. The amounts of this protein can slightly vary between Botox and Dysport. Neither Botox or Dysport treatments will permanently get rid of your wrinkles, but they both make wrinkles less noticeable, especially when at home serums and creams aren’t working.
The Dysport treatment is going to reduce the appearance of glabellar and forehead lines, crow’s feet. These are the lines between your eyebrows that extend vertically, upward and or towards the forehead, which can be more noticeable when someone makes a frowning or sad face.
These lines unfortunately become more noticeable when a person ages. This is due to the skin losing collagen and protein fibers that take responsibility for the skin’s elasticity. Dysport treatment can help treat those unwanted wrinkles and reveal the smooth and youthful look you want!
For treatment on the forehead and glabellar lines about 50 to 100 units are needed. How many exact units will vary on how deep the wrinkles are, and how frozen you want to be! That’s right, you can adjust your dosing to meet your ideal natural to frozen look.
Did you know that you can treat your smile with Botox and Dysport too? Ask your Registered Nurse Cosmetic Injector for the Lip Flip treatment! A lip flip treatment requires injecting Dysport into the top lip. The goal for a lip flip is to relax the orbicularis oris muscle, which helps to form and shape the lips.
The injection encourages the top lip to relax and “flip” outwards, giving the subtle illusion of a fuller lip. A lip flip treatment will, on average, last between 3-5 months with how often we use our upper lip muscles! Want the overall Glow Girl look? Pair your lip flip and smooth skin with a mini lip plump!
