Botox – Dysport: The most popular aesthetic treatment

In North America, more than 5 million patients a year are using neuromodulators. This class of injectable aesthetic treatments is one of the most effective and widely used anti-wrinkle treatments on the market today with over 90% of treated patients pleased with its results. In Quebec, its popularity continues to grow. If you’re thinking about being treated by Botox in Montreal, it’s a good idea to learn as much as possible about this treatment and what you can expect from it. Let’s go over some of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to Botox.

How does Botox-Dysport work?

Botox and Dysport are a class of aesthetic injectable medications called neuromodulators. Neuromodulators alter the communication between the nerve and muscle. The loss of muscle movement follows injection. Neuromodulators have been game-changers in the anti-aging and beauty market because of their ability to remove and lessen wrinkles.

Neuromodulators are different from other injectables. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, neuromodulator injections do not add volume. This is because neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport are proteins that block the action of a neurotransmitter, acetylcholine when it is injected into facial muscles. Acetylcholine functions to allow your muscles to contract, so when it’s blocked, you get a muscle that will not contract and therefore will not cause a facial wrinkle.

Safety Profile: Botox-Dysport

The stunning achievement of the Botox-Dysport solution has had beauty fans lining up to receive their wrinkle treatments. Are Botox treatments safe? After all, Botox is a protein toxin produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. This is the first cousin of the fatal botulism bacteria.

Neuromodulators have been safely used by ophthalmologists for more than a decade with no severe effects being reported. This medicine has actually been available since the early 1960s. Originally it was in use as a cure for crossed eyes. The method in which botox operates is that it is injected into the muscle where the wrinkles show. While the botox is injected into the muscle the frown lines, crow’s feet, and laugh lines disappear for prolonged durations of time. At AestheticaMD, we emphasize ‘prolonged durations’ since the effects of a single Botox-Dysport treatment last approximately 3 to 6 months. However, with continued and repeated use of the effects, the cosmetic effect lasts much longer. Neuromodulators such as Botox and Dysport have been approved by the FDA for the aesthetic treatment of muscles that produce frown lines.

Although Botox-Dysport has been safely used by millions of customers, it is recommended that pregnant women or women who are nursing a baby as well as patients suffering from neurologic illness avoid its use. Botox-Dysport has few side effects. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately. Occasionally, temporary sagging of the eyelids occurs. This usually spontaneously resolves itself.

Qualified Medical Practitioners

Botox and Dysport are popular in Montreal, but that doesn’t mean you can get them just anywhere. You should only receive neuromodulator injections from a licensed and experienced medical professional who can answer your questions and has experience with the treatment. Botox-Dysport should be injected at key points within the muscle for it to work effectively and to minimize any chances of complications. You are best served by seeking a qualified medical practitioner who has had success with the treatment before. Talk to Dr. Chen Lee about his experience. Be sure you’re working with someone you’re willing to trust your face with.
