How does Botox and Dysport work?
Botox & Dysport are neuromodulators that are injected to temporarily reduce muscle activity that causes lines & wrinkles. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles are reduced & the overlying skin appears smooth.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime following treatment; however, we do recommend that you refrain from exercise activity for 24 hours.
When will I see results?
After your treatment, you can expect to see results between 1 and 14 days after treatment. Dysport is known to activate in about three days whereas Botox can take up to ten days to provide results.
How long do results last?
Results typically last between 3 to 4 months.
Will I look frozen/unnatural?
Absolutely not! At Body Med Aesthetix, our providers are experienced injectors who take their time in understanding the goals of each individual patient. Rest assured that our injectors will not leave you with a "frozen" or unnatural look.
When should I start getting Botox injections?
The age of first time Botox users vary in our practice & there is no right or wrong answer to this question. Most adults generally start to see the first signs of aging by their mid 20's. Is this too young to start using Botox? Absolutely not!
Starting Botox before deep lines & wrinkles appear can prevent static lines & deeper wrinkles from forming.
