Botox and Dysport are widely considered the best non-surgical, injectable treatments for dynamic wrinkles and expression lines. When injected into targeted muscles, they soften the unwanted wrinkles on your face, such as the frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. They can also treat numerous other conditions, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), jaw pains, and migraine headaches.

SkinScience Medical Aesthetics specializes in highly personalized treatments with Botox and Dysport in Pleasant Hill and Martinez. Our injectors carefully examine your facial skin and discuss your goals to curate the ideal Botox/ Dysport treatment plan. This includes selecting the ideal product and dose for you to ensure soft, natural-looking results. Besides softening your expression lines, we can help you prevent the formation of new wrinkles.

About Neuromodulators

Botox and Dysport belong to a category of injectables known as neuromodulators. They’re made from the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, which can block the transmission of nerve signals to specific muscles. Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to communicate emotions, such as frowning and laughing.

Over time, the overused muscles become larger, making your skin develop permanent creases that remain even at rest. Botox and Dysport block communications between nerve endings and the targeted facial muscles, softening unwanted wrinkles. Botox and Dysport have minor structural differences that make them suitable for different patients. We invite you to schedule a consultation to find out more about the best Dysport and Botox in Pleasant Hill and Martinez.

Am I a suitable candidate for Botox/ Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are suitable for patients between the ages of 18 and 65. Most people qualify as candidates for neuromodulators, but you shouldn’t be pregnant or have a history of allergic reactions to ingredients in Botox and Dysport. You should also have realistic expectations from the treatment. You can get Botox/ Dysport to prevent new wrinkles from forming or soften the existing wrinkles, but the results only last for a few months.

Our highly-trained and specialized cosmetic injectors will carefully discuss your goals, examine your facial skin, and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate. They may also recommend alternative treatments for your wrinkles, such as dermal fillers for fine lines and static wrinkles. Each treatment plan is individually curated to address your specific goals and requirements with Botox and Dysport in Pleasant Hill and Martinez.

What happens during the Botox/ Dysport treatment?

During your Botox/Dysport treatment, our cosmetic injectors will cleanse your facial skin with alcohol. The treatment areas will be marked to guide the injections. Finally, our cosmetic injectors will select the appropriate Botox/Dysport dose and inject it into the chosen treatment areas. The number of injections depends on the treatment areas, but most treatments conclude within 15 minutes.

What are the side effects of Botox/ Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are extremely safe procedures with minimal post-treatment side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, discomfort, and irritation around the injection sites, but these side effects will dissipate in a few days. You can minimize post-treatment bruising and swelling by avoiding excessive exposure to sunlight and temporarily discontinuing anti-inflammatory/ blood-thinning medications.

What is the recovery process after the Botox/ Dysport treatment?

Botox and Dysport treatments don’t involve extended recovery — most patients resume their daily activities immediately. You’ll have to keep your head upright for a few hours and avoid massaging your face. You’ll also have to avoid strenuous workouts, saunas, and direct exposure to sunlight for a day.

When will I see the Botox/ Dysport results?

You’ll start noticing the Botox/ Dysport results after 3 to 4 days, with continued improvements for up to 2 weeks. The final results last for up to 4 months with optimal treatment, following which you’ll need a maintenance treatment. Most patients receiving Dysport and Botox in Pleasant Hill need 3 to 4 sessions per year to maintain the results yearlong.
