Botox and Dysport
Imagen is Pleased to Provide Two of the Most Popular Neuromodulators in the United States!
It is important to recognize that for all medical procedures, including those performed at Imagen Body Sculpting, individual results and experiences may vary *.
What are Neuromodulators?
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are purified proteins which are used to relax dynamic wrinkles caused by the frequent movement of the muscles of facial expression. They result in a more relaxed, stress-free and youthful look. Botox Cosmetic was approved by the FDA in 2002 to treat undesirable frown lines between your brows and was FDA approved in 2013 to soften crow’s feet around the eyes. These treatments can help you to look younger and more refreshed *.
What should I expect after receiving Botox or Dysport?
Neuromodulators consist of a few tiny injections to the target area and are performed by one of our physicians. These injections decrease the muscle activity responsible for smile and frown lines, relaxing the muscles and making the lines less prominent. They are minimally invasive treatments that have no down time and do not require anesthesia, although as a courtesy we do numb the area before hand. Botox and Dysport are office-based procedures that take only a few minutes time to perform with results that can last for three to five months. You can expect to see the results in as little as 3 days and you may notice improvement for up to two weeks *.
You may notice some redness and light swelling initially, but this usually resolves after a few hours.
Side effects of neuromodulators are minimal, and can be expected to go away within a few days. These side effects may include a temporary sensation of tingling and minor swelling, along with some numbness and tenderness in the treated area, as may be expected from any medical injection. To reduce these effects, you may wish to ice the treated area before and/or after the injection. To avoid increased bruising, we generally recommend avoiding anti-inflammatory medications or aspirin before receiving any facial injections. Oral or topical Arnica can also help with the bruising.
Botox and Dysport have a long and proven history of safety and efficiency, and the staff at Imagen has years of experience using this wonderful injection. Botox and Dysport are relatively pain-free procedures for patients who want a youthful, more relaxed look.
