BOTOX & DYSPORT

The presence of fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be disheartening, as it is usually a sure sign of the aging process taking hold. There is not much we can do to keep ourselves from getting older, but there are methods available that help keep aging at bay. Two cosmetic treatments – BOTOX® and Dysport® – have proven effective at softening the facial muscles and promoting a more youthful appearance. At Olam Med Spa, we offer BOTOX® and Dysport® treatment to help your skin look more refreshed and vibrant by softening the muscles responsible for the fine lines and wrinkles that are making you look older.

What is BOTOX® ?

   BOTOX® is an injectable that temporarily relaxes the muscles. It is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

  When used for cosmetic purposes, BOTOX® can target the muscles in the face and alleviate wrinkles. Smiling, laughing, frowning and other expression all contribute to muscles contracting, which develop wrinkles over time and contribute to the facial features looking older and the skin seeming less elastic.

However, when administered by a licensed professional, BOTOX® can create beautiful results, and the doses are so minuscule that the drug cannot be traced in the bloodstream. Overall, receiving BOTOX® treatment can improve facial contours and help you look and feel younger.

Whay is Dysport®?

   As a similar drug to BOTOX®, Dysport® is an injectable used to treat wrinkles and facial folds in the skin. Both drugs are derived from a form of botulinum toxin type A and are injected directly into the muscles to temporarily relax and soften lines in the face. Common injection sites include forehead lines that are produced when you frown or along the eyes and nose. BOTOX® and Dysport® can also be used to treat protruding neck bands as well as a gummy smile. However, it is vital that both BOTOX® and Dysport® be administered by a healthcare professional who can properly inject and manipulate the correct amount of the drug to produce the most aesthetically pleasing results.

   Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.

BOTOX® and Dysport® Treatment at Olam Med Spa

   If you are curious about whether Dysport® or BOTOX® are right for you, then we welcome you to schedule a complimentary consultation with us. During this time, we will discuss the concerns you have about your face and determine your treatment goals. We will also assess your medical history and ensure that you have no underlying muscle or nerve conditions. Afterward, we will examine the muscles in your face and design a treatment plan that uses injectables to create a natural-looking and younger appearance.

   During treatment, the injection will be administered directly into the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. The needle used during treatment is very thin, almost similar in size to an insulin needle, and clients usually experience minimal discomfort.        Typically, between three and five injections are used in the treatment area and procedures take no longer than twenty minutes. Most clients notice softening in a few days, and you can expect your BOTOX® or Dysport® injections to last 3-4 months or longer, at which time you can schedule another treatment session. Although lines in the face may decrease and seemingly disappear, you will have to receive injections regularly in order to maintain the effects.
