Botox and Dysport

It can be challenging to pick which toxin would be best for your aesthetic goals! We thought we would break it down for you. Here at Beauty and Body Med Lounge, we offer two options, BOTOX® and Dysport®. BOTOX® and Dysport® have a slightly different chemical variation, but their overall treatment plan remains similar. 

So, what are we treating?

Toxins like BOTOX® and Dysport® are looking to treat the fine lines that form when facial expressions are made over a period of time. As the skin ages it becomes more prone to lasting lines. What neurotoxins do is block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions and existing lines are softened while future lines are prevented. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into facial muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. BOTOX® helps prevent muscle contraction of facial movements that lead to wrinkles and are used to treat lines between eyebrows, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Other areas that are treated are lip lines, excessive underarm sweating, and tight jaw muscles.

For adults who want a more natural look, there’s Dysport®. Dysport® is a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work regularly, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.
