Dysport® and Botox® Treatments
Want to improve the dynamic wrinkles on your face caused by years of facial movement, such as smiling or frowning?
Anti-wrinkle injections, Botox® and Dysport® are a quick, affordable and effective way to help prevent the formation of facial wrinkles.Dysport® and Botox® are both brand names of Botulinum toxin Type A available on prescription in New Zealand. Botox® is the American brand and Dysport® is the European brand. Both Brands has been approved globally and in New Zealand for medical use.
When the face is in motion or expression, the lines that appear are known as dynamic wrinkles, however repeated movement over time forms deeper lines and folds known as static wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle. The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.
Botox® and Dysport® treatments are not only for woman. More and more men are now seeking treatment to maintain a more youthful, attractive appearance to give them the edge in a highly competitive job market. An experience injector will assess your needs and ensure that you maintain expression.
The area that is mostly treated is the frown line also known as worry lines. Other areas such laugh lines around the eyes and horizontal lines on the forehead are also common areas to treat. Dysport® may also be effective for conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) teeth grinding and migraines.
The procedure takes about 15- 20 minutes. No skin numbing is required and you can expect gradual results from the 3rd day after the procedure. Results may last 3 to 4 months. Side effects and complications can occur but are rare and will be discussed in detail at the time of you consultation. Your practitioner will require a full medical history prior any treatment.
