Botox® is a well-known and widely used cosmetic treatment that has been helping people reduce wrinkles and fine lines for decades. However, not many people know there are different types of neurotoxins, such as Botox®, that are available, and each is designed to target specific areas and achieve different results.
Like Botox®, Dysport® has been used for cosmetic and medical purposes for many years and has a good safety record when administered by a qualified healthcare professional. Dysport® is an injectable neuromodulator used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. It is made from botulinum toxin type A, which works by blocking the signals from nerves to muscles, causing them to relax and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
While the two treatments are similar, there are some key differences between them.
Botox® and Dysport® are both injectable neuromodulators used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face. While they are similar in many ways, the two treatments have some key differences.
Ultimately, the choice between Botox® and Dysport® depends on individual patient needs, preferences, and goals. There are many different services when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and it’s important to be familiar with them so you can make the best decision for your appearance and well-being. Here are some of the most popular.
Relaxing the muscles around the brow with Botox® or Dysport® injections can create a more youthful and ideal brow shape. This treatment can also shape and define the brow line for dynamic results. The procedure has no downtime, scarring, or surgical invasion, and results are visible in a few days and in full effect in approximately two weeks, with results lasting up to three months.
Daily repeated movements around the mouth area cause wrinkles and lines on the chin, which you can treat with Botox® or Dysport® injections. These injections fill the lines and restrict the movement of surface muscles, preventing further depressions in the skin. This treatment targets dynamic wrinkles to create smooth, full skin without invasive methods or recovery time. However, slight temporary swelling or bruising may occur at the injection site.
Treating crow’s feet with Botox® or Dysport® injections smooths and revitalizes the skin around the eyes by minimizing the movement of the dermis caused by muscle contractions. This well-placed injection removes the tension that creates lines, resulting in a fresh-faced look. Results are noticeable in as little as three days and last around three months, with regularly scheduled visits recommended to maintain the look.
A down-turned mouth can give the appearance of constant frowning, but you can fix it with Botox® or Dysport®. The DAO (Depressor Anguli Oris) muscle, which causes the mouth corners to droop, can be relaxed through the strategic application of these treatments, resulting in a more prominent smile and reducing the impression of a frown.
Eliminate forehead wrinkles and lines with Botox® or Dysport® injections from a certified professional at Spruce. Strategic placement of the injection reduces the movement of the dermis on the forehead, causing wrinkles to disappear while retaining natural expressions. Combine this with ZO®Skin Health skincare for youthful, glowing skin. Regular follow-up treatments, scheduled every three months, ensure long-lasting results.
Frown lines between the eyebrows, known as Glabellar Lines, can be reduced and prevented with Botox® or Dysport® injections from a certified medical professional. These lines are caused by repeated furrowing or intense concentration of the eyebrows and can create an older appearance. The injections are minimally invasive, require no recovery period, and prevent future lines from forming by decreasing the movement of the face.
A gummy smile can detract from the beauty of your actual smile, causing some to hide it out of embarrassment. However, with a pinpoint injection of Botox® or Dysport®, you can easily resolve this issue. The injection is applied with precision to decrease the amount of gum shown, creating more volume and space for the upper lip, resulting in a gorgeous, natural-looking smile.
Botox® or Dysport® can be an effective treatment for migraine headaches. Our trained medical staff uses precision injections to target the pain’s source and monitor progress. After two treatments, headaches are significantly reduced, with at least a 50% decrease after five treatments. This approach works by blocking pain signals before they reach nerve endings in the head and neck, with treatments every twelve weeks to maintain relief.
Excessive sweating can cause discomfort and limit mobility, particularly in common high-sweat areas like the scalp, underarms, feet, hands, and groin. Botox® and Dysport® injections can reduce excessive sweating by blocking nerve signals that trigger sweat responses. Originally used for cosmetic purposes, these injections can help individuals fully engage in their active lives by keeping extremities and highly visible areas sweat-free.
The “Lip Flip” service offers a custom solution for achieving plump, full lips with natural-looking results. This approach uses targeted Botox® or Dysport® injections to relax the muscles around the mouth, specifically the top lip, and create a gracious curve. Combined with dermal fillers, the Lip Flip achieves fuller lips in an enticing shape that complements your natural face shape and mouth.
An Ultimate Facelift combines the relaxing power of Botox® or Dysport® with the structure and hydration provided by dermal fillers to achieve a comprehensive refresh. Certified medical professionals can target specific areas to enhance or relax, resulting in a natural, youthful look. This single treatment can plump lips, eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, enhance the chin or jaw profile, and more. The treatment is non-invasive, long-lasting, and requires no downtime or recovery period. Regularly scheduled visits to Spruce can refresh and maintain the results.
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) can cause severe pain originating at the jaw, leading to headaches and other symptoms such as difficulty opening/closing the mouth, jaw clicking, popping, or grinding. It’s important to identify the source of the pain and, if it’s muscular, use a controlled injection of Botox® or Dysport® to reduce pain and prevent future tension buildup. The treatment offers consistent relief, and regular appointments every three months can help maintain the results. There is no recovery time, so you can quickly return to your daily routine.
