BOTOX Vs Dysport – Which One Is Right for You?
Is picking up a copy of A Wrinkle in Time triggering for you? When it comes to all things wrinkles, Impact Medical Rejuvenation of Tampa is here to help identify the best options. With the myriad of anti-aging treatments available, the two most popular wrinkle reducers remain BOTOX and Dysport. Read on to learn more about both treatments to determine which option is the best fit for you.
These two temporary anti-aging treatments share similarities that might make them difficult to decipher. Both procedures are commonly used to reduce lines around the face and forehead using an injectable neurotoxin that blocks muscle contractions for 3-4 months at a time and is safe to use in small amounts. A short process, often referred to as a “lunchtime appointment,” followed by a quick recovery makes both injectables très populaire. Here’s where they differ.
Dysport’s main objective is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the glabella area of the face. This area is the space between the eyebrows where lines can form because of repeated frowning or squinting. When they become more prominent and develop moderate to severe lines, it may be time to consider adding Dysport to your regimen. Working with a professional can help you determine if this treatment is necessary. If so, the entire nonsurgical procedure may be performed in the doctor’s office with minimal recovery time.
If you are interested in treating more facial real estate, consider trying BOTOX. In addition to the glabella area, this FDA-approved procedure can reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead, eye area, and crow’s feet. The number of units used can differ per patient so speak with a doctor to determine the right amount for you. Similarly to a Dysport treatment, it can be performed in a doctor’s office with minimal, if any, side effects like swelling or bleeding.
Both are effective and can produce quick results but it’s important to find a professional team that can administer them safely. Call the Impact Medical Rejuvenation of Tampa team today at (813) 283-1910 or visit us online to schedule an appointment.
