Start The New Year Off Right With Botox & Dysport
The new year is quickly approaching. With holiday plans and parties in full swing, it can be easy to forget about starting fresh in 2022.
Whether your resolution is to feel more confident in your own skin, take a risk, or just to look your best (we’re not judging!) SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery is here to support you in your journey.
One of the easiest ways to knock out all the above with one treatment? Trying a Neurotoxin injectable like Botox or Dysport. Here’s everything you need to know about the most popular injectable and what you can expect from your treatment.
First, some history…
While the word Neurotoxin may sound intimidating, Botulinum toxin is the active ingredient in both Botox and Dysport. In the 1950s, scientists discovered that this naturally occurring Neurotoxin decreased muscle activity by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. With the injected muscle unable to contract, the treated wrinkles relax and soften for three months.
Although the product itself has been around for decades, the technique used for injection has evolved past the “frozen face” stereotypes of the past. Now a household name and common treatment, a well-injected face can even allow for some natural movement and transform your look, allowing for a brighter, more youthful aesthetic.
Okay, tell me more…
Botox is used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, laugh lines, and other signs of aging, while Dysport offers improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. Regardless of which one you receive, the treatment is injected directly into the target facial area to prevent muscle contraction.
The procedure itself is quick and relatively painless, typically taking less than 15 minutes from start to finish. However, your final results take up to a week to present, so be sure to book your book appointment with plenty of time to spare before the ball drops on December 31st.
Who should get it done?
Contrary to popular belief, the best time to get Botox or Dysport is before you start showing signs of aging. Since the treatment stops the muscle from contracting, wrinkles are unable to form, making it preventative as much as it is corrective. However, there’s no wrong time to start an injectable routine and we encourage everyone to see how Neurotoxin can help them feel their best.
When you come in for your appointment we’ll determine the number of units needed (this will differ for Dysport and Botox, but don’t worry we’ll go over pricing and measurements during your visit) as well as discuss the areas you’d like to treat.
