Hello and welcome to the Trillium Creek Dermatology blog. My name is Michelle Telloni, and I’m a Registered Nurse with Trillium Creek.
They say the lines on your face tell a story; stress being one of the most common causes of aging. And with the added stress of Tax Season, the story of stress is not one we all want to see on our faces. With the help of Trillium Creek Dermatology & Surgery Center, you can erase those stubborn lines and wrinkles with one simple visit. In this week’s podcast, I’ll share the benefits of Botox® and Dysport® and how they can help rewrite your story!
Stress usually shows up on our face as lines in our forehead and lines between the eyebrows, often called the “eleven” lines. Deep lines in these areas can make us to look very aged… but thankfully, there is a solution! Both of these areas can be treated with Botox® or Dysport®, a simple injection to help relax the muscles in the face. Other areas we can treat are the chin (to get rid of the pebbled look), or the lines around the eyes (also called crow’s feet) – these are usually caused by squinting or smiling. We can also treat the neck area to tighten sagging skin that comes with aging.
If you’ve never had this treatment before, here are some things that you can expect. For starters, the appointment times for Botox® or Dysport® are quick and easy, perfect for when you’re on the go and need a quick touch up. When you come in, we wipe your face with an alcohol pad so we have a clean surface to start. We then use a very tiny needle for injections to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You may have some redness for a few hours after the treatment, but makeup can be worn immediately after treatment if you’re out running errands, or have an evening engagement. We ask that you don’t lay down or exercise vigorously for 3 hours after your treatment. Most patients start feeling the effects in 3-5 days, but allow for up two weeks for your Botox® or Dysport® to fully kick in. The number of units for either Botox® of Dysport® needed to treat those stubborn lines is specific to each person and can be personalized for their needs.
Botox® and Dysport® can be done at any age once past your teens, but we suggest starting in your early 20’s. You don’t have to wait until you see deep wrinkles to start treatment. When started early, Botox® and Dysport® works as a preventative as it slows aging and wrinkles.
If you’re interested in discussing Botox® or Dysport® as a treatment option or if you’re trying to decide which areas you would like to be treated, call in to schedule a personalized consultation today!
Lastly, all of our Botox® and Dysport® patients should be applying H&H Science Facial Firming Therapy daily. This helps to increase the longevity of your treatments and gives the Botox® or Dysport® a better overall effect. You can find this product in the H&H Science Boutique located at any of our offices.
