Botox® Cosmetic Long Island
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are nonsurgical, physician-administered treatments that can temporarily smooth wrinkles between the brows, across the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), on the bridge of the nose, and in other areas of the face. If you’re interested in Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic in Long Island, you may benefit from a visit to Cavallo & Horlick Dermatology.
BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first treatment of this type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been used for over twenty years in the United States.
How Do BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® Work?
These injectables are types of injectable neuromodulators ad are formulated from Botulinum toxin type A, which is derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an Allergan product, while Dysport® is from Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals.
These products work by blocking the chemical signal from the nerve ending to the muscle, resulting in an inability to move the muscle, which in turn smooths out the overlying wrinkle.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are patients who are not currently pregnant or nursing, do not have active skin infections in the treatment area, and have realistic expectations. Dysport and BOTOX® injections are most effective in men and women from 18 to 65 years of age.
BOTOX® and Dysport® can treat a number of cosmetic issues:
- Crows feet around the eyes
- Chin wrinkles
- Vertical platysmal neck bands
- Vertical frown lines between the brows
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Perioral lip lines
These injectable neuromodulators are also often used to treat medical issues such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating from the armpits and other regions) and migraine headaches. Additionally, they can be used to contour the jaw and jawline.
If you are looking for a way to address bags under the eyes, restore cheek volume, or smooth away lines around the nose and mouth, dermal filler treatments are a better option than BOTOX® or Dysport®.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
At the start of the session, the targeted areas will be marked. Following this, topical or local anesthesia may be administered as needed.
The treatment involves the injection of very small amounts of botulinum toxin into the underlying muscles to relax them. The actual treatment is well tolerated and takes just a few minutes with no “down time” or prolonged recovery period.
Once your BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® treatment has been completed, you will be able to go back to your workday. Because of this, it is often referred to as a “lunchtime treatment.” A minor degree of swelling or bruising may be present but is only temporary.
The treatment takes effect in several days, and the improvements generally lasts three to four months before the effect gradually fades and muscle action returns. Results may vary depending on the individual and the amount of product used per treatment. After results fade, patients can return for maintenance treatments.
Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic Cost
Price is often a concern when it comes to aesthetic treatments. Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic cost is determined by factors like the amount of units used and the number of injections performed.
