Botox/Dysport

Refresh Your Look With Botox or Dysport

Years of squinting and frowning tend to leave deep wrinkles in the skin. On many people, frown lines produce an angry or sad look that detracts from a pleasant facial appearance. Simple injections of Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic will improve these lines. Anti-wrinkle injection treatments such as Botox or Dysport are purified proteins, which relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. They have been used for over 20 years for wrinkle reduction and prevention.

Look fabulous at any age! If life, work, family and everything else we face have you looking worn out, angry or stressed, Botox & Dysport are a safe, effective, non-surgical answer to achieving a well-rested and energized look.

At Face Cosmedics we are extremely skilled and experienced in using Botox and Dysport to prevent early signs of aging, as well as to treat a variety of immediate concerns.

Preparation

To decrease the chance of bruising at the injection site, please avoid all NON-PRESCRIPTION blood thinning medications and supplements for 1 week prior to your appointment. Avoid taking Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) such as such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil and Aleve. In addition, very high doses of some Vitamins (Garlic, Ginko, Vitamin E and others) and supplements can thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising. Please notify your practitioner if you are taking Warfarin, Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners for a medical condition.

Post Care

• Try to exercise your treated muscles for 1 hours following treatment (ex. Practice frowning, raising your eyebrows or squinting). This helps to work BOTOX/DYSPORT into your muscles. Although this is thought to help, it will not impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
• NO rubbing, touching, lying flat, no downward dog, cart wheels, or the horizontal mambo for approx. 3 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
• Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours. If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a gentle touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
• Results of your treatment may take 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until the 14 days has passed to assess if you are pleased with your result. At this time, we ask that you return for a follow up appointment.
• BOTOX & DYSOPORT are temporary procedures, results will last approximately 3-4 months.
• Our clinic will see you in 2 weeks for a follow up. Please ensure you book this appointment if this is your first treatment for the particular area or if you have any concerns.
• If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to CALL 780-750-0852 or TEXT 587-844-2233

What happens during the Treatment

To decrease the chance of bruising at the injection site, please avoid all NON-PRESCRIPTION blood thinning medications and supplements for 1 week prior to your appointment. Avoid taking Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) such as such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil and Aleve. In addition, very high doses of some Vitamins (Garlic, Ginko, Vitamin E and others) and supplements can thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising. Please notify your practitioner if you are taking Warfarin, Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners for a medical condition.

What happens when the treatment stops working?

The effects of BOTOX/DYSPOT will gradually disappear until the treated area regains movement. For best results, continue treating the area every four months.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD YOU START BOTOX OR DYSPORT ?

You should consider anti-wrinkle injection treatments such as Botox or Dysport when facial lines like frown or smile lines begin to stick and do not go away when the face is relaxed. Usually, this happens in your 30s while for some, this may begin in the late 20s.

Botox and Dysport relax the muscles and subsequently the overlying skin so that wrinkles are not formed. Some other factors that are considered include the amount of muscle movement and the level of damage from the sun.

ARE BOTOX OR DYSPORT PERMANENT?

Botox and Dysport are temporary treatments that keep certain facial muscles in a relaxed state. This prevents them from contracting and reduces your wrinkles. When you begin your treatment, before the lines become too deep, you can prevent getting permanent wrinkles. However, your results are not permanent and you must repeat your Botox treatment every 3 to 6 months. For a permanent solution to your forehead wrinkles, you could opt for a brow lift instead. Your surgeon can use this surgery to sculpt the underlying muscles in a manner that eliminates the use of Botox.
