Botox® and a similar neuromodulator called Dysport® are extremely popular for a reason: They smooth frown lines and other facial creases for months at a time. At Aesthetic Envy and Wellness in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, Kim Nguyen, PA-C, provides these cosmetic injectables alongside other high-end, anti-aging services. To find out if Botox can treat your lines and wrinkles, schedule an appointment by phone or online at Aesthetic Envy and Wellness today.
Botox is a well-known cosmetic injectable brand that contains a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. Both Botox and Dysport, a similar injectable using the same key ingredient, relax target muscles in the face to treat and prevent fine lines.
Botulinum toxin affects motor nerve impulses that normally fire off when you aren’t even thinking about it. These nerve impulses lead to the development of dynamic wrinkles on the face, which appear in areas where your skin creases as underlying muscles flex.
At Aesthetic Envy and Wellness, Kim can complete your Botox or Dysport treatment in around 20 minutes. She places the injections with great precision so that you don’t look frozen or unnatural when the results appear. It can take 3-14 days to see the full effect of your Botox or Dysport injections.
Aesthetic Envy and Wellness offers Botox and Dysport injections to treat dynamic wrinkles that affect your facial features. You can get Botox for one or more of these common fine lines:
Forehead lines are horizontal indents that appear above your eyes. They tend to get deeper when you raise your eyebrows.
Frown lines appear between your eyebrows where your skin gathers when you scowl or furrow your brow. Dysport is only FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe frown lines.
Crow’s feet are the wrinkles that appear on the sides of your face below or next to your eyes. They tend to get deeper when you raise the sides of your mouth to smile.
Botox and Dysport are temporary solutions for facial lines and wrinkles, but you can use them as long-term solutions by coming in for injections repeatedly. At Aesthetic Envy and Wellness, Kim can help you plan regular Botox or Dysport treatments for ongoing relief from targeted wrinkles.
With each round of Dysport injections for frown lines, the results last for three to four months before you need your next round. Botox injections can last a little bit longer. In some cases, they last for six months or longer.
If you have larger wrinkles you want to treat, Botox and Dysport are not the best options. For those, you can ask Kim about adding dermal fillers to your treatment plan.
