One of the most popular treatment options for wrinkle improvement is the injection of Botox or its alternative, Dysport. Repeated muscle contractions caused by frowning and squinting are the primary reasons people get wrinkles, fine lines and deeper lines. Botox can be thought of as a simple muscle relaxant for specific muscles in the face. When you relax those muscles, the result is softening (often dramatic) of fine lines and wrinkles. The results of Botox are highly satisfying and the treatment is simple and easy!
Most people have heard of Botox, but may be skeptical about having Botox treatments. Rest assured that Botox is one of the safest treatments available, and is FDA approved. Botox is a purified protein that is often used in children, as well as many non-cosmetic medical conditions.
At Charmed Medispa, Botox is injected into the facial muscles to relax them and cause significant improvement in wrinkles. Botox can be used between the brows, for crows feet, forehead lines, nasal lines, chin depressions, brow lifting and to improve downturn of the mouth. In addition, it can be used in the masseter muscles in the face to sculpt the jaw and chin line. Another use of Botox is for excessive sweating and is commonly done in the under arm area.
Botox can dramatically improve those areas of concern in just a few days — with no downtime or surgery! The results typically last 3-4 months and sometimes up to 6 months.
Our injector at Charmed Medispa trains physicians and other health care professional in the fine art of injection techniques so rest assured you are being treated by an expert who is highly sought after. Your treatment will be customized for your specific concerns and our goal is to get you the exceptional results with Botox or Dysport.
What sets our Botox results apart? Everything. Your facial anatomy is evaluated in depth and Botox is only executed in the areas that would benefit you as well as look natural. In addition, we have other resources to compliment Botox or used as an alternative if Botox is not an appropriate treatment for your concerns. When you have these resources, Botox is offered if it would be in your best interest not because it’s all we do. That’s important.
Our team at Charmed Medispa also has had Botox and Dysport treatments themselves and love to share their personal experience with you. Check out our full gallery of results as well as our blog for Botox education and tips.
Micro Botox (also known as microbotox or mesotherapy Botox) are very small units of Botox for areas like the under eyes and cheeks which can soften smile lines tremendously but keep you moving and smiling. Our provider can review the options for micro Botox with you.
Botox Neck Lift
Are you looking for a neck lift without surgery? Some of our guests are great candidates for a Botox neck lift. How does a Botox neck lift work? The Botox is injected into the bands on the neck that stick out. When these platysmal bands get Botox, the bands snap back and create a tighter, firmer neck area. The results of a Botox Neck Lift are impressive and see the results below for a beautiful example. The Botox Neck Lift is very popular at Charmed Medispa and has outstanding results without any downtime.
An alternative medication to Botox is called Dysport. Dysport is often called the “party” choice, because the results can show up sooner than Botox. Many clients choose this option if they have a special event coming up in just a few days.
Both Botox and Dysport can provide you with results that are highly satisfying. Our nurse, Loraine Savarese, is an expert injector who trains physicians on basic and advanced injection techniques. She has traveled extensively to show physicians and nurses the finer details in getting the best results for patients.
What is the difference in Botox and Dysport? They are made from two different companies. They are essentially the same but the dosage for Botox is lower (with higher cost per unit) and the dosage for Dysport is higher (with a lower cost per unit). These details can be confusing but relax and know you are with an expert provider who has delivered ten of thousands of Botox and Dysport treatments. Some clients report better results with one over the other but the vast majority of our guests get the best result from the right dosage in the right places.
Results from Botox and Dysport are not immediate, but you will typically see results in between 2 and 14 days. The results of Botox and Dysport can be dramatic, and last for approximately 4 months and sometimes up to 6 months.
Our advanced injector, Loraine Savarese, will evaluate the correct dosage based on the strength of your muscles and the site of injection. Often increasing the dosage of these medications allows for longer longevity. It’s important to know the dosage of your Botox since it will affect the results and how long the Botox results last. Our med spa delivers that thorough education you need to understand Botox.
The results of Botox or Dysport in the forehead, between brows and crow’s feet can be exceptionally great. You can expect a dramatic improve in these areas as well as Botox for chin cobbling, downturn of the mouth, bunny lines and platysmal bands – our famous Botox Neck Lift.
Your concerns will be evaluated so that the Botox and/or Dysport treatment can be customized, giving you the highest level of satisfying results.
Botox and Dysport are very popular to prepare for special events like weddings, reunions and celebrations. It’s important to get those treatments a few weeks before the event so that your results are at their maximum.
Botox is repeated when the muscle action returns and the wrinkles and lines start to appear. If you have Botox before any return of wrinkles, your results may not be successful. It’s also important to have Botox before full return of motion so that you can win the battle over etched lines and wrinkles. Charmed Medispa is proud to ensure that we are doing repeat treatments at the right time to ensure your Botox results.
