Years of smiling, laughing, expressing yourself, or sun exposure can lead to more lines in your face than you’d like. Botox and Dysport from Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine in San Diego provide a minimally invasive way to diminish these effects without the need for surgery or downtime.
Dr. Fontaine listened to everything I had to say. He was very caring and understanding all of my problems. The suggestions he had made sense and ended up being just what I needed. Would not hesitate to recommend him. Would really give him 5+ stars if I could.
Botox and Dysport are both neuromodulators with similar indications. They are injectable medications that temporarily paralyze specific muscles, leading to benefits such as fewer wrinkles. While they can treat other conditions, Botox and Dysport are best known for reducing moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines in adults.
Botox and Dysport treatments provided by Dr. Fontaine usually look very natural. The result is a more relaxed and rejuvenated look. These procedures may give you a more youthful, rested appearance. If you’re concerned about overly dramatic results, a smaller dose can be used initially and adjusted with further treatments, as needed.
Botox and Dysport are injected with tiny needles. Most people experience only mild and brief discomfort. If you’re concerned about pain, you may take a pain reliever, such as Tylenol, beforehand. Avoid any medication that thins the blood, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, which can increase the risk of bruising. Ice can be applied during the procedure as well if needed.
Once injected, these products gradually begin working. Results may start to appear within 48 hours, with full results noticeable within a week or two. While results vary based on a variety of factors, results for both Botox and Dysport usually last about three months.
Your ideal number of injections depends on factors such as your treatment goals and the current state of your skin and the amount of muscles you have that is creating the wrinkles.
Before your treatment, Dr. Fontaine discusses the specifics with you and recommends a treatment plan. Each patient is treated individually and given the amount they need to achieve the best results.
