Combating the signs of aging sure can feel like it always takes a lot of effort. Creams, ointments, masks — these can do a lot of good, but sometimes you need something stronger that doesn’t take precious time out of your day.
A treatment with Botox or Dysport may be the solution you’re looking for. We have all the latest, proven anti-aging options for you at The Refinery in Georgetown, Texas. Our highly-trained aesthetic professionals are ready and waiting to help you look younger and feel like your best self today!
Botox and Dysport are brand names for neuromodulators used to treat wrinkles and loss of elasticity in the skin. As we age, our skin tends to lose its resilience and repeated movements — smiling, laughing, frowning, or furrowing the brow — can cause wrinkles and creases over time. These dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear when muscles contract) often turn into static wrinkles (wrinkles that stay visible in the skin even when muscles aren’t activated).
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport work by immobilizing the muscles underlying the skin in places like the face, forehead, and mouth. This minimizes the movement of the skin, allowing it to heal and recapture its earlier form and texture. While these substances have been used for decades and have been proven safe and effective, it takes a skilled, experienced medical professional to apply neuromodulators in a way that maximizes safety while ensuring a natural and optimally enhanced appearance.
Treatments with neuromodulators including Botox and Dysport are considered very safe when performed by a qualified clinician like those at The Refinery. Because of this, Botox treatments can be effective for most patients with concerns like those listed above. Good candidates are also in overall good general health. Candidates should not have any major medical conditions (like cancer or heart disease) or active infections, especially those on the skin. Being a non-smoker also helps with recovery and achieving optimal results. Understanding the procedure well and having realistic expectations is important as well, and we always recommend you talk to your doctor before undergoing any elective treatments.
Botox and Dysport treatments have been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines, creases, and wrinkles in several areas of the body. These can include but are not limited to:
Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved for the treatment of frown lines, and Botox is also approved for the treatment of crow’s feet. However, all applications that The Refinery offers are highly safe and effective. When you meet with us here at The Refinery, we take the time to listen closely to your needs and work with you to craft the customized treatment plan that’s right for you.
At The Refinery, most Botox and Dysport treatments can be completed in less than 30 minutes and have our patients resting at home on the same day.
The procedure will begin with a thorough cleaning of your skin, and then you will be placed in a relaxed, comfortable position. Your clinician will then use a tiny needle to inject the neuromodulator into the muscles of the targeted area, taking care to only immobilize the wrinkle-causing muscles.
By working with such precision, your skin can be smoothed while preserving your natural expressions.Depending on the scope of your treatment plan, this process will be repeated around the treatment region. This ensures you enjoy a balanced, natural appearance.
The recovery process is generally smooth and painless. You may notice some slight redness around the injection sites, but there is usually no pain, and the discoloration typically dissipates within a few hours.
Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately. However, it is important that you refrain from rubbing or massaging the treated area for at least 48 hours after your treatment. Doing so can cause the neuromodulator to migrate and affect unintended muscles, resulting in negative side effects. It is extremely unlikely, but more serious complications can occur. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice symptoms like breathing problems, trouble swallowing, or slurred speech, as you may be having an allergic reaction to the treatment.
You should start to notice results within three to five days of your Botox or Dysport treatment, and full effects should be readily apparent after about a week. Wrinkles and creases should be visibly reduced or even eliminated. Your skin should also appear fuller, smoother, and more vibrant.
Maintaining your results will depend on the product you chose, your unique body chemistry, and how well you care for your skin. Botox and Dysport are both safe for repeated use, and multiple treatments may even enhance their effectiveness.
