Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a cosmetic solution which is injected under the skin to reduce the look of crow’s feet and fine lines on the face, providing a stitchless lift for the face. Botox is most effective on the lines caused by repeated muscle movements which occur when a person frowns or squints. The injections cause a temporary relaxation of the muscles just under the skin to create a noticeable reduction in the appearance of lines occurring on an individual’s face. This treatment is one of the only cosmetic tools used to address signs of aging which has been studied extensively. It is approved for use in more than 50 different countries.

What Is Dysport?

Dysport is another injectable version of botulinum toxin type A. While chemically very similar to Botox, Dysport tends to be more diluted and spreads more after it has been injected, which can be beneficial when treated a larger area like the forehead. It is less effective on areas where the muscle tissue is thicker, such as between the eyebrows.

What Should I Expect From Treatment?

A Botox® injection procedure typically takes between 10 and 20 minutes. The providers at Glendale Dermatology provide thorough consultations to determine which treatments will best address each patient’s cosmetic concerns. Due to the providers’ skill with Botox and Dysport, patients will achieve younger looking skin without losing the ability to express their emotions on their face. Very little downtime is required for Botox® and the treatment is often performed during a lunch hour. Within 24 to 48 hours, results should be visible and they should last for several months before re-treatment is needed to maintain the effects.
