BOTOX AND DYSPORT
Botox is injected into your facial muscles. It temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe frown lines in adults aged 65 or younger. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why BOTOX® Cosmetic has been chosen by millions of women and their doctors.
Dysport is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works like Botox. It costs less, works faster, and lasts longer than Botox. It also is slightly better for addressing deeper frown lines than its predecessor. Dysport is a prescription injection for improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines in adults less than 65 years of age.
Q: Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Q: What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please see the Important Safety Information including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide, and talk to your specialist.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
