What is Botox® and Dysport®?

Botox® and Dysport® are nonsurgical, anti-aging treatments that are injected directly into the muscles. It can effectively diminish signs of aging by relaxing facial expressions around the eyes, brows, bunny lines around your nose and forehead. 

When expertly administered by a nurse, they both offer an effective solution for minimizing the signs of aging. This makes Botox® and Dysport® an affordable alternative to cosmetic surgery while also being minimally invasive and highly effective. 

Dysport® has a small number of dairy proteins, therefore if you have a dairy allergy Botox® is your alternative. When you come in for your treatment your cosmetic nurse will go over your full health history to appropriately prescribe the right product for you.

Where can Botox® and Dysport® be used?

The forehead is the most common injection site, as it’s where many people first see the signs of aging. Horizontal wrinkles along the brow are easily treated with Botox® injections.

The area between your eyebrows, also known as the glabella, or “11” lines, is also a popular treatment area. Smoothing out these vertical wrinkles corrects a tired or angry appearance for a more vibrant look.

Dysport® is injected into the upper eyebrow can mimic the effects of an eyebrow lift by relaxing the muscles that cause upper eyelids to droop.

Crow’s feet are the small, branching wrinkles that form at the corner of the eye when smiling. The skin in this area is much thinner than in other parts of the face, exacerbating the appearance of wrinkles.

Bunny lines, otherwise known as nasalis lines, are the rabbit-like wrinkles that appear on the side of your nose when you scrunch up your face, smile or laugh. These lines sometimes extend upwards to the lower eyelid.

A puckered or dimpled chin can worsen with age as the muscles in the chin area become more overactive. The natural age-related loss of collagen increases this dimpled appearance. Dysport® smooths the chin area for a more youthful look.

Lines that form at the corners of the mouth can sometimes extend downwards towards the jaw, or even cause the corners of the mouth to droop. Injections at this site can help you maintain a happier, more lively appearance.

Both horizontal and vertical wrinkles appear in the neck area with age. Dysport® works by preventing neck muscles from sagging, and can also improve the jawline for a look that mimics the results of a neck lift.

Dysport® applied to the base of the nose can raise the nasal tip. This works by weakening the muscles which pull the tip of the nose down as you smile or talk.

Sometimes known as liquid rhinoplasty, this technique can be combined with dermal fillers for a re-contouring of the nose.

Otherwise known as a Dysport® lip lift, this technique may also be done with Dysport® alone or combine with lip fillers.

Dysport® provides a fuller lip pout by mildly rolling the upper lip outward. Fine lines around the upper lip are minimized as a pleasant side effect of this procedure.

Excessive elevating of the upper lip when smiling is known as a gummy smile, as the gums above the front teeth become exposed.

Injecting Dysport® can weaken the retractor muscles that cause this effect.

A woman's face is labelled with different botox injection areas on the face. These include forehead creases, droopy eyebrows, frown lines, bunny lines, crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles, gummy smile, lip lines, undefined jawline, jowls, chin wrinkles, neck lines and neck cords.
