Injectable Treatments for a Younger Appearance

woman with nice smileDysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are injectable treatments available at our Houston, Texas practice. They are both variations of botulinum toxin A, commonly used to treat facial wrinkles. They are temporary solutions and have many similarities (and a few differences).

Getting Started with Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic

During the initial consultation, Houston board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azita Madjidi listens to your concerns and analyzes your face, both at rest and during expression. Having an extensive training in craniofacial surgery, and a Masters degree in anatomy, Dr. Madjidi will precisely identify the muscles responsible for the areas of your concern.

The specific muscles in need of treatment will be injected with a very fine needle. Dr. Madjidi will discuss with you the differences between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, both of which are FDA-approved to treat frown lines. However, they cannot be used simultaneously.

Each patient reacts differently to injections. Therefore, if this is your first time, Dr. Madjidi will see you again two weeks after the injection in order to precisely evaluate how much BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® is necessary for your individual needs.

If the desired effect is obtained, this will be your required dose. If the result is less than expected and a touch-up is needed, it will be done at that time.

Combining BOTOX® or Dysport® With Other Treatments

In order to improve facial wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®may be used in conjunction with dermal fillers or fat injection to obtain longer-lasting results. BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® will be injected at least two weeks prior to the filler or fat injection treatment. They are a great adjunct to eyelid surgery, browlift, or facelift to improve the overall results around the eyes.

Your Botox will be administered in Dr. Azita Madjidi’s office in Houston, TX.

Treating Multiple Issues with BOTOX® or Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic has many off-label applications in the face. The most common application is in the forehead and crow’s feet. The transverse lines and the frown lines are often treated with either BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®. However, they cannot be mixed together and units are not comparable.

The position and the shape of the eyebrows can be modified by precise BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®injections. The crow’s feet areas, lateral to the eyes, the lines over the nose, and some of the neck bands may be treated as well.

The hyperactive chin muscle can also be treated this way to create a softer chin.

BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been approved to treat severe migraine headaches and a condition called hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating.

How Long Before I See My BOTOX® or Dysport® Results?

The effects Dysport and BOTOX® have on muscle weakness is seen approximately two to four days following injection, with maximal weakness at seven to 10 days. The effect is usually reversed in four months. However, if an area is treated repeatedly, the effect seems to be prolonged after each time.

“I personally perform the injections and do not delegate injections to a nurse or a physician assistant.”

Most common side effects with both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are temporary headache, fatigue, dry mouth, discomfort or pain in the region where the injection was administered, neck or muscle pain, and eye problems such as double vision and blurred vision.

If you have deep creases, repeating injections about every four months over a year will help soften the lines because the muscle is prevented from contracting which makes the lines deeper. This is also a great way to prevent frown lines from becoming permanent and deep. To learn more about Dysport® and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, contact our Houston practice today.
