Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most difficult and troublesome signs of aging on the face and neck. It doesn’t seem to matter how expensive your skincare gets; nothing helps to penetrate those creases. While there are great options available for treating wrinkles, there is nothing quite as popular these days as neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport. Perhaps you’ve heard of neuromodulators and found yourself curious if they can help resolve some of your skin issues. Keep reading for exactly where Botox or Dysport can be used to help smooth, soften, and tighten your skin.
At Dr. Guy Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. W. Marshall Guy is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon and an expert of human facial anatomy. His outstanding skill, attention to detail, and patient-centered approach help him to achieve the best Botox results in The Woodlands, Texas.
What are Botox and Dysport?
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by excessive use of facial muscles. Think of a rubber band. When you first start to use it, the rubber is smooth and stretches and returns to its taut form, but as you continue to stretch and use the rubber band, the material becomes lax, and you may even notice lines or breakage. The same can happen to your skin. Botox and Dysport are considered neuromodulators. Derived from neurotoxins, neuromodulators have been refined over the years to effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles. They can also treat other medical issues, including migraines, excessive sweating, muscle spasticity, voice problems, swallowing problems, and more.
Neuromodulators work by inhibiting the wrinkle-causing muscles beneath the skin. When injected in measured amounts, Botox or Dysport can safely reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and more. Simply put, they help to return the rubber band to its original form.
What Areas Can Botox and Dysport Treat?
Botox and Dysport are excellent for areas such as:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Platysmal neck bands
- Mid portion of the nose (bunny lines)
- Around the mouth (commonly called smoker’s lines)
- Chin dimples
- Frown lines around the mouth
- And much more…
During your consultation with Dr. Guy, he will evaluate your skin to determine where and how much Botox will be required to meet your individual aesthetic goals.
What Are the Differences Between Botox and Dysport?
The difference between the two is subtle, and it ultimately comes down to your specific preferences when choosing which to use. For patients that have chosen Dysport, they have reported that the effects of their treatment have come on faster and last longer for them. It is a great option if you’ve used Botox in the past and feel that you’re no longer achieving the results you want.
