Botox or Dysport Injection San Diego
Botox or Dysport, generally known as onabotulinum toxin A, are a purified protein and neurotoxin complex that, when injected straight into the muscle, causes muscle relaxation. Botox or Dysport block the signal to nerve impulses sent to the muscle.
Repetitive creasing from our everyday facial expressions in our skin causes dynamic wrinkles. As time passes, these wrinkles become larger, deeper and more permanent. Botox or Dysport relax these facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving your skin a chance to smooth out naturally.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® has been used in the medical field for the past thirty years. Aesthetic use of BOTOX® began about ten years ago. The aesthetic application uses tiny amounts in comparison to when it is used to stop muscular spasms. Cosmetic BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that gets injected in small doses into facial muscles of the lower brow and the forehead in order to reduce the progress of deep wrinkles and enhance the look of frown lines, laugh lines, and fine lines.
What is DYSPORT®?
DYSPORT® (abobotulinumtoxin A) is another great product that has been around for several years outside the United States. Ever since obtaining FDA-approved in 2009, Americans now have another option to treat lines and wrinkles of their faces. DYSPORT® is often used for smoothing the appearance of the vertical wrinkles and glabellar lines most prominent on your forehead in between your eyebrows.
A mistaken belief is that neuromodulators such as BOTOX® or DyYSPORT® will entirely inhibit our facial motion and expression. The purpose of a BOTOX®or DyYSPORT® treatment is to smooth out facial lines, while still offering a natural appearance and the ability to show emotion. When injected into exact appropriate location and given in the correct amount, BOTOX® or DYSPORT® will modify the degree of muscle contraction in order to minimize lines while allowing some movement to display expressions.
Botox or Dysport can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane and also with PRP to bring added effect in restoring and rejuvenating the facial shape and skin. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane lift the facial tissue and make the patient’s face look younger. PRP rejuvenates the tissue naturally bringing lasting volume and glow to the facial skin.
At San Diego PRP Therapy Clinic, Allurant Aesthetics, Botox or Dysport treatment is a quick procedure that makes you look younger and its effect lasts between 3 to 6 months.
