BOTOX® & Dysport
How does botox & dysport work?
Botox and Dysport, also called neuromodulators, work by blocking the nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract. The effect is temporary weakness or paralysis of the targeted facial muscles to smooth or eliminate wrinkles on the skin. These injections have become very popular for reducing wrinkles and rejuvenating the aging face.
How long does botox last?
The effects are temporary, and typically lasts 3-4 months.
When will my botox start working?
It takes from 2-7 days to begin to see results from neuromodulators. Full effect will be seen in 2-3 weeks. You may require additional units at a subsequent follow-up visit within two weeks.
How much botox will i need?
Every persons dosage varies based on their individual anatomy, their age, and their desired results. Males usually require more than females. People with stronger muscles may require more. Neuromodulators will not fill any wrinkles/lines; they work by relaxing and smoothing the moving lines. Average dosage is between 30-60 units.
