Botox and Dysport Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection made from purified botulinum toxin that temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face. Harmony Beauty Spa offers two brands of Botox: Botox Cosmetic and Dysport.

Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily lessen the appearance of your moderate-to-severe crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. It was the first Botox injection approved by the FDA for aesthetic purposes.

Dysport is used to treat moderate-to-severe frown lines for adults 65 years and younger. 

Both brands of Botox are effective at improving your look, and your aesthetic specialist at Harmony Beauty Spa determines the type of Botox for you based on your aesthetic goals.

How does Botox work?

Botox reduces the appearance of your lines and wrinkles by stopping the movement of the muscles underneath the skin. 

Repeated facial expressions cause your skin to fold, creating the creases and lines that turn into wrinkles. By stopping the movement of the muscles just under your skin, Botox can prevent the folding and the formation of the lines.

What can I expect during Botox injections?

Your aesthetic specialist at Harmony Beauty Spa conducts your Botox injections at the office. The expert injectors can have you in and out in a few minutes. The number of injections you need depends on the types of wrinkles you’re having treated, but the typical numbers are:

  • Crow’s feet: three injections on each side
  • Forehead lines: five injections total
  • Frown lines: three injections total

Because the needles used for Botox injections are so small, the discomfort is minimal, and you shouldn’t experience anything more than a pinch-like sensation during your injections. 

There’s no downtime after your Botox, so you can go right back to your usual activities afterward. However, your aesthetic specialist may suggest you hold off on hitting the gym or running for at least two hours. 

How long do the results from Botox last?

Both Botox Cosmetic and Dysport injections can keep you looking young and refreshed for up to four months. 

You should return to Harmony Beauty Spa once you notice the effects wearing off so they can provide repeat injections. 

Regular Botox injections cause the muscles under your skin to thin out, which may help improve the longevity of your treatments.
