For people who don’t know about Botox or Dysport, the treatment can seem complicated and even frightening. However, for people experienced with Botox or Dysport, it is a wonderful treatment they actually look forward to! Smoothing facial lines by relaxing dynamic muscles is the action of Botox and Dysport and it has been used for over 20 years without any long-term adverse effects.
The desired effects last approximately 3-4 months leading to gradual return to prior treatment appearance. Our patients are so impressed by their appearance they frequently wish it lasted longer than 3 to 4 months. At Luxe Aesthetic Center, we use only full-strength Botox and Dysport and customize the treatment to your facial anatomy by providing the appropriate amount for your desired look.
Botox and Dysport are highly purified proteins made much in the same way antibiotics are made. There is no numbness or permanent changes associated with its use. Uncommon side effects can include bruising, redness, slight swelling at injection site, and rarely, eyelid heaviness/droop.
Prior to treatment, it is recommended to avoid alcohol, high dose vitamin E, aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications such as Ibuprofen or Naproxyn, and any other blood thinning medications (unless used for prescribed medical conditions) to decrease the incidence of bruising.
