What Causes Wrinkles?

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle movements and develop over time with your natural aging process.

Wrinkles can be either static or dynamic. Static is formed when the tissues are constantly relaxed, and frequent muscle movements cause dynamic. When targeted to a specific area, neuromodulators will block the nerve stimulation to its muscles. This will result in muscle release and an eventually dramatic improvement on frown lines formed between the eyebrows, crow’s feet at the eyes corner, forehead lines, and lines around your lips.

Carefully placed injections using BOTOX or Dysport temporarily paralyze the muscles responsible for these wrinkles, allowing the skin to smooth and soften for a rejuvenated appearance. Cosmetic injections are a non-surgical procedure; technical skill and training are very important when choosing your injector.

How are injections performed?

  1. During your initial consultation appointment, your injector will first establish whether the treatment is suitable for you. For instance, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an allergy, you should avoid getting treated.
  2. Your provider will discuss any particular areas of concern, identify the specific injection points, and determine the recommended dosage.
  3. Your injector will prepare the treatment and directly inject the designated points with a fine needle.

What is the difference between Botox & Dysport?

There is very little difference between Botox and Dysport; both are neurotoxins used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox & Dysport work by relaxing the muscles and preventing those muscles from contracting, so they don’t react when you smile, laugh or frown. The result keeps wrinkles from forming.

There are subtle differences between Botox & Dysport. Perhaps the most significant difference you’ll notice between Botox and Dysport is the number of units required for your treatment. Dysport is more diluted than Botox, which means you’ll receive more dosage units if you use Dysport. It is roughly three units of 1 unit of Botox.

Some patients also state that Dysport may set in faster than Botox.

“It’s important to note both products work very well,” says Dr. Batista. “When deciding which one is best for you, it comes down to patient preference.”

BOTOX injections can help with facial slimming.

How can Botox injections be used for facial slimming? Botox in the masseters can be used to slim the face and help create the upside-down triangle that everyone wants. The use of dermal filler injections can also help enhance the facial slimming effect.

If not injected correctly, BOTOX in this area can affect the smile.  This is why it is so important to see certified, experienced injectors who are familiar with facial balance and facial anatomy. Weakness of the masseter muscle can lead to some wanted side effects of decreasing the ability to grind teeth. This is especially helpful for people that grind at night in their sleep.
