BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®
While developed and distributed by different manufacturers, BOTOX® and Dysport® share a global reputation for their results in the area of non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Both derived from the botulinum toxin, these wrinkle relaxers temporarily prevent overactive facial muscles from causing deep-set lines and wrinkles while also smoothing out existing fine lines. Patients typically report results lasting up to four months; Thereafter, we advise maintenance appointments.
Dr. Lieman and the Elite Aesthetics Medical Spa Staff use BOTOX® and Dysport® to treat:
- Crows feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Platysmal bands
- Between brows “number 11’s”
- TMJ: Masseter muscle
- Hyperhydrosis: intense sweating
Both cosmetic and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can be treated with BOTOX® and Dysport®.
- BOTOX® or Dysport® can be used to address excessive sweating. Patients often seek assistance with this condition—the chronic occurrence of excessive underarm sweat due to body temperature regulation. Either of the injectables can be inserted in the underarm with a fine needle. In many cases, patients report a significant reduction in underarm that can become more noticeable within four weeks and last nine months or more.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX® or Dysport®?
Both men and women seek out these injectables to address moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and in many cases, to prevent them from forming in the future. During your complimentary consultation, we will review your overall health history, identify any possible contraindicating medical conditions, and discuss your desired outcome.
Whether it’s BOTOX® or Dysport®, Dr. Lieman will evaluate your individual condition and guide you in the appropriate direction for optimal anti-aging results.
Are BOTOX® and Dysport® Safe?
BOTOX® and Dysport® have proven safety profiles. Both are clinically tested on a global scale and share similar potential side effects. These can include temporary bruising, swelling, redness and itching; however, these responses typically subside shortly after treatment.
Major complications are rare, but patients are advised to avoid rubbing or massaging treated areas as the botulinum toxin can spread and cause facial drooping or weakness. Results may vary from patient to patient, and multiple sessions may be needed in order to achieve desired results.
