Botox & Dysport

Effective Wrinkle-Reducing Options

Whether caused by smiling or by frowning, wrinkles around the eyes and forehead naturally appear as people age. Facial wrinkles are caused by using certain muscles in a consistent pattern over a long period of time, such as squinting, frowning, or even smiling. By the age of 30 or 40, these wrinkles are well established. Hormone Therapy of Orlando is pleased to offer Botox® and Dysport® as two effective wrinkle-reducing options. They cause the underlying facial muscles to be unable to contract. Without muscle contraction, wrinkles can’t form.

Botox & Dysport are the most well-known and popular neurotoxins for eliminating facial wrinkles non-surgically. Both have been granted FDA approval for cosmetic use. As injectable neurotoxins, Botox and Dysport function by blocking specific chemical signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. This action temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. They can noticeably soften age-revealing crow’s feet and help erase forehead furrows – the vertical lines between the eyebrows and the horizontal furrows across the forehead, known as glabellar lines. Additionally, Botox and Dysport may be used to lift the brows and treat masters, neck bands, dimpled chins, and bunny lines.

  • Treatment Overview

    A Botox or Dysport treatment is quite simple. After a complimentary consultation, our aesthetics expert will examine your facial muscles to determine the number of units required. You can rely on our specialists to help you achieve the most natural-looking results.

    While you recline comfortably, an ultra-fine needle is used to inject the product directly into the muscle that underlies the dynamic wrinkle. The injections feel like little pinpricks, and an ice pack may be applied if there’s any discomfort. The process takes about 10–20 minutes.

    Hate needles? We also offer ProNox™, which is a self-administered anxiety and pain relief system for patient use. ProNox™ uses a nitrous oxide delivery system that works in seconds and wears off minutes after use.

  • What to Expect Post-Treatment

    Considered a “lunchtime” procedure, there is no downtime and clients may resume normal activities immediately. 

    However, for best results:

    • Avoid strenuous activity or exercise for 24 hours
    • Avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours
    • Do not lay down for 3 hours post-treatment
    • Do not massage the injection areas to avoid spreading the neurotoxin to other parts of the face
    • This treatment is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women

    Over the next few days, you’ll begin to notice changes in your wrinkles. It may take up to 7 days for full effect, with results you can expect to enjoy for up to 4 months, or even longer, depending on the area treated.

    Over time, the neurotoxin will degrade into simple proteins that will be metabolized by the body. Gradually, you’ll see some movement in your muscles again and you’ll know it’s time to schedule your next wrinkle-erasing treatment.
