What is Botox/Dysport Treatment?
One of the worst parts of aging is the development of wrinkles. It is the clearest sign that we’re getting older, and while there are creams and lifestyle habits that can prevent or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, nearly every man and women will eventually develop clear, large wrinkles that change the way we feel about ourselves.
For many, the best ways to treat these wrinkles is with BOTOX – a small, safe infection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles for an extended period of time, and helps those around Atlanta regain a more youthful appearance.
How Botox/Dysport Works
In order to understand how Botox/Dysport works, it is important to first understand wrinkles. Every day, we move muscles in our face that stretch and contract our skin. When we’re younger, our skin snaps back into place, and provides the appearance of youth.
As we age, however, our skin loses its elasticity – its ability to stretch and return back to a “healthy” appearance – and crease, cracks, and lines in the skin start to form. These are known as wrinkles.
Botox/Dysport is type of toxin, but when used correctly it is perfectly safe for cosmetic use. Botox/Dysport is carefully injected into the muscle just beneath the skin. It then blocks the microscopic signals that your body uses to tell the muscle to contract, thus paralyzing some of the smaller facial muscles in your face. This, in turn, allows the wrinkles to flatten, and the face to regain much of its youthful appearance.
The Botox/Dysport Procedure
The Botox/Dysport procedure itself is very simple, and many patients are in and out in only a short time. Using a very small needle, your Botox/Dysport specialist will inject only a very small amount of Botox/Dysport into the targeted muscles. Recovery time is near instant, although some bruising and swelling may occur and it is recommended you avoid putting pressure on the injection site or exercise and other strenuous activity.
