BOTOX Cosmetic & Dysport

NJ Skin Treatments | Bergen County Cosmetic Surgeon

When you look into the mirror are you noticing more wrinkles than you can appreciate? Are you finding the unwanted crow's feet in your Orbicularis Oculi (muscle surrounding your eyes) and/or the frustrating lines in the glabella (frown lines between your eyebrows)? As we age there are many un-pleasantries that accompany are wiser selves. You can blame it on the cellular changes that occur as we age, the reduction of collagen lost over the years, damage caused by free radicals from sun exposure or the environment, stress accumulated throughout the years or not drinking enough of that precious H2O. Whichever culprit takes the blame you still have these unwanted wrinkles.

What if I told you that you can achieve that youthful firm appearance again without surgery? With BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport® the result of wrinkles caused by repetitive movement of your facial muscles can be eliminated. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medically-purified form of a natural bacterial protein called Botulinum Toxin which produces muscle paralysis. The protein binds to the nerve endings, preventing the chemical transmitters that activate the muscles from releasing. Blocking these signals from the nerves to the muscles results in diminished or non-existent activity in the affected muscles. In providing a temporary cosmetic paralysis of the muscles surrounding the eyes, the muscle contraction ceases which eliminates wrinkles. Dysport® has the same protein used in the BOTOX® Cosmetic and is a prescription injection typically used in patients under the age of 65. The protein is injected into the specific muscle area using an ultrafine needle. You are free to continue your normal daily activities after injection. Within a day or two the voluntary as well as involuntary movement of the muscles treated will gradually diminish. After a week you will start to notice the smoothing effects lasting anywhere from two to three months. It is recommended to receive subsequent injections in order to extend the longevity of your results.

BOTOX® is the most extensively studied aesthetic treatment and is approved for use in 78 countries. It is FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles in the glabella (frown lines between the eyebrows). It is used without FDA approval to treat crow's feet (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes), horizontal wrinkles in the forehead, and tight muscle bands in the neck. It has even been recently approved for treatment of migraine headaches.
