Neurotoxins: Botox and Dysport

Botox and Dysport are types of neurotoxins because they are wrinkle-relaxing injectables. They work by targeting and relaxing the muscles in the face to soften expressions and by doing so, also smooth lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxins can help reduce forehead and glabellar lines, Crow’s feet, bunny lines, Marionette lines and more, based on the static (resting position) and dynamic evaluation of your face and facial muscles. At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, we want to provide a natural, youthful result with neurotoxins. Depending on your evaluation and goals, you may also be a good candidate for facial fillers in addition to neurotoxins to achieve the best facial rejuvenation results.


What To Expect From Your Treatment

All of these neurotoxins are administered the same way. Each product is contained within an injectable and administered with a super fine, very thin needle.

The Injection Process

To begin the injection process, the injection sites will be marked and cleaned once make-up has been removed and your face washed. Then, a series of quick and virtually painless injections are made into the muscles within the treatment area. This process typically takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Once your treatment is over, you can resume most of your normal activities.

Post-Treatment Care

These injectables qualify as “lunchbreak injectables” because the treatment is so quick that you can schedule appointments during your lunch break. While there isn’t any downtime, you will have to be careful with your skin and protect the treatment sites to ensure the best results. Although many people do not have any visible signs of injection immediately following treatment, sometimes the injected areas may look like small insect bites for 20 to 60 minutes and may be swollen for a few hours. You will be asked to follow some of the following directives:

  • Avoid wearing regular make-up for the first 4 hours, though you can apply light make-up after 1 hour
  • Avoid touching the treatment sites for the first 4 hours
  • Avoid excess sun exposure
  • Avoid strenuous activity and workouts for 24 hours
  • Keep your head elevated for at least four hours post-treatment
  • Avoid raising your body temperature
  • Avoid excess heat or hot environments
  • Avoid blood-thinning supplements and medications
  • Avoid alcohol consumption

You will be provided with details about how to care for your skin and what products and activities to avoid immediately following your treatment to ensure you achieve the best results. You will only have to follow these directions for 24 to 48 hours before resuming all your normal activities.

Your Results

Once you receive your injections, it will take a few days to begin to see positive improvements in the appearance of your wrinkles. You will see the most noticeable results within three to five days, and the best results will be most evident 30 days post-treatment.

How long do the results last? On average, results will last anywhere from three to six months. Your body will determine how long your results last, and once it fully metabolizes the ingredients in the injectable used during your treatment, you will see your wrinkles slowly reappear. When that begins to happen, you will know that it is time for a follow-up treatment to maintain your wrinkle-free skin long-term.
