Botox® and Dysport: The Procedure and What to Expect

Although everyone has heard of it, there still seems to be some confusion behind one of the most popular and well-recognized procedures: Botox® and Dysport® Injections.

First of all, if Botox® and Dysport® injections are used correctly, they can help your appearance immensely. That is why you need to make sure you have an experienced doctor performing the procedure, like double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jason Champagne. He is an experienced injector who utilizes a microdroplet technique that will preserve your facial expression as well as diminish those unwanted facial lines. He also does this all without giving you a ‘frozen’ look. Dr. Champagne understands the importance of an individualized treatment plan, and by placing small droplets in strategically chosen areas, he can achieve excellent results that will enhance your natural beauty.

What is it?

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables available and is used to reduce–and even prevent– the appearance of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Results typically last up to four months and can be easily maintained with follow-up treatments. That is why the “one and done” mentality rarely gives you the results you hope for. It should be done regularly and become a part of your skincare regimen in order to obtain the best results.

Dysport®, similar to Botox®, treats moderate to severe lines and wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes and to the sides of the eyes by reducing specific muscle activity. Injection of Dysport® temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause wrinkles, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. Again, Dr. Champagne offers his patients professional application of the injections without giving you a ‘frozen’ appearance, leaving you only with natural-looking results.

What to Expect –

The majority of users see improvement in just 2–3 days after injections. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport® may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. There is minimal to no downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster. Occasional bruising and pinpoint swelling may occur.

With Botox® injections, because Dr. Champagne uses very small needles and a microdroplet technique, there is little to no downtime after the procedure is performed. Small areas of redness and swelling fade within one hour after treatment and Dr. Champagne takes great care to avoid bruising. If bruising does occur, resolution varies between patients and can sometimes last several days. Headaches may also occur and typically subside within 24 hours.

If you’re looking for a subtle way to enhance your natural appearance, Botox® and Dysport® Injections are a great way to begin. Both are non-surgical and can be performed right here in our beautiful Beverly Hills office.
