BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are indicated to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients less than or equal to 65 years of age.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport for injection, are sterile, vacuum-dried purified botulinum toxin type A, produced from fermentation of Hall Strain Clostridium botulinum type A grown in a medium containing casein hydrolysate, glucose, and yeast extract, intended for intramuscular use. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport both block neuromuscular transmission by binding to acceptor sites on motor nerve terminals, entering the nerve terminals, and inhibiting the release of acetylcholine from vesicles situated within nerve endings which relaxes muscles.
The administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport is not recommended during pregnancy. It is not known if this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are administered to a woman who is nursing.
Learn Why Your Face Is Aging & How Botox and Dysport Can Help Battle Those Wrinkles:
As people age, the muscles used to form facial expressions create unwanted creases in the skin from movement overtime and loss of college. If you find yourself looking in the mirror and not liking all the wrinkles you see, then using Botox or Dysport might be a good solution for your concern about how you look. Botox is a safe, quick and relatively painless procedure that can help you reduce the wrinkles and lines in your face. Here’s why: Botox blocks the chemical from nerves that contract muscles so that muscles can't contract and wrinkles can’t form, and it softens existing wrinkles and prevents them from deepening. It's important to consider starting botox early to prevent wrinkles.
Botox can help:
- Remove Frown Lines– aka the ‘elevens‘
- Reduce wrinkles around the eyes; aka Crows Feet
- Reduce smile and frown wrinkles around the mouth; aka lipstick lines or smokers lines
- Reduce wrinkles on the forehead-horizontal creases
- Reduce wrinkles on the side of the nose; aka bunny lines
- Give your lips a more pronounced pout with the botox lip-flip performed at Beautify
There May Be Additional Health Benefits of Using Botox:
Botox can even help with hyperhidrosis (it’s a technical word for excessive sweating), TMJ (jaw pain) and migraine headaches; we can treat all of those things here at Beautify. There also have been several studies that show that Botox injections can help with feelings of sadness related to depression. Even though results vary from individual to individual, Botox Injections usually can give your face a younger, revitalized appearance so you look refreshed. Botox may give relief from excessive sweating, jaw pain or headaches.
Some other big benefits of Botox are:
- The procedure is almost painless
- Botox Injections are done quickly at Beautify
- There is no recovery time needed
- Botox only lasts for 3-4 months, so if you don’t like the results (rare), it is not permanent!
Side effects of Botox/Dysport:
Botox and Dysport have been around many years for cosmetic use and has been found to be very safe and even used to treat medical issues in children for non cosmetic use. When administered properly, Botox side effects are very rare. There are some side effects from the needle like injection pain, bruising, and swelling and these resolve quickly. The only problems with Botox occur when it drifts away from where it was originally injected. This can cause the Botox side effect of a droopy eyelid or uneven eyebrow where the botox has spread. The good thing is that this side effect is temporary and will resolve on its own in a few weeks.
