Botox / Dysport
What is Botox?
Botox and Dysport are the most common aesthetic injection treatments performed on women and men. A simple treatment, they help maintain your natural youthfulness by smoothing lines and wrinkles of the face.
Botox and Dysport are both liquids that are injected into targeted muscles to temporarily reduce or prevent muscle movement. Wrinkles, lines or folds that are caused by these muscle movements are therefore minimized or go away completely.

What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name neuromodulator, for a cosmetic injectable neuromodulator. Decades ago, researchers found that when injected in small doses, the botulinum toxin temporarily blocks nerve signals in the muscles. Without the nerve signal, the muscle will not move. Over time, approximately 3 months, the botox wears off and the muscle will return to full movement.
Other brand names include Dysport, Xeomin Jeauvaeu and Daxxify. Injecting the reconstituted/mixed product in small amounts will relax your muscles by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscle. Without the nerve signal, the muscle cannot contract or move.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox and Dysport treatments are injected with ultra-fine needles making the treatment relatively pain free.
Is Botox safe?
Is there any downtime with Botox?
Most people have no downtime following a Botox and Dysport treatment. You should be able to resume your normal activities following the treatment with minimal restrictions. Occasionally pinpoint marks or bruises can be seen after treatment and resolve within days.
How long does it take for Botox to work?
Will my face be "frozen" or expressionless?
What are Botox side effects?
The main side effect is slight redness and mild swelling at the injection sites. This is temporary and usually resolves in 10-30 minutes. Some people develop a slight headache for 12 hours or so after their session. The main side effect or complication with BOTOX® is when it is injected into an unintended or incorrect muscle and it leads to problems such as a drooping eyelid. This is why it is very important to go to an experienced injector for your BOTOX treatments, to achieve optimal results and avoid complications or incorrect placement of product.
How often should I have Botox or Dysport?
Can you get Botox while pregnant?

Can you drink alcohol after getting Botox?

Is Botox good for men and women?
Yes! Botox benefits both men and women looking to maintain a youthful appearance and smooth lines and wrinkles on the face.
How Botox works
Instead of physically adding volume or contouring the way that injectable fillers do, Botox addresses muscles that are causing signs of aging, such as frown lines, forehead lines, crows feet, heavy brows, dimpled chins and neck bands.
When injected by highly trained and experienced Master Injectors (such as those at our med spa in Lakewood Ranch), Botox can look very natural leaving you with movement, but helping you look rested, refreshed and younger. It is also great for prevention of lines, gummy smiles, and TMJ pain.
Botox and similar injectables (Dysport, Xeomin Jeauvaeu and Daxxify) are used to address some of the most prevalent age-related issues for both men and women.
What to Expect
Your provider will start your appointment by discussing your aesthetic concerns and goals.
Next they will ask you to make facial expressions to pinpoint the areas of concern. From here, a customized treatment plan will be made to provide optimal results.
Then, using a fine needle, your practitioner will make quick injections that are typically only mildly uncomfortable.
Following your Botox treatment, you may resume regular activities including washing your face and wearing makeup. It is advised to avoid exercise for the remainder of the day.
Botox can be used for a variety of aesthetic and non-aesthetic concerns
By far the most common use of Botox is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face or other parts of the body. Small amounts are injected into the target area, helping relax the muscles and smooth out the skin, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
A Lip Flip involves injecting Botox into the muscles around the mouth to help lift and enhance the upper lip. Unlike dermal fillers, which add volume to the lips directly, a Lip Flip is more subtle. Or if you’re looking for something less subtle, lift flips can be combined with dermal fillers for dramatic results. Typically Lift Flips take only a few minutes to perform, and the effects last for several months.
Botox injections can help to reduce the amount of gum that shows when you smile, providing a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. The gummy smile treatment involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the muscles surrounding the mouth. This relaxes these muscles, causing the upper lip to cover more of the gums when you smile. If you’re self-conscious about your gums when you smile, a Botox gummy smile treatment may be a good option to consider.
If you suffer from jaw pain or discomfort caused by TMJ disorder, Botox can be a game-changer. This treatment involves injecting Botox into the masseter muscles, which are responsible for jaw movement and chewing. It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, which can reduce tension and pain in the jaw. This can make it easier to eat, speak, and perform other daily activities without discomfort.
