Spa V is happy to offer both BOTOX and Dysport. These are both neurotoxins that relax the muscles of the face that cause wrinkles. It works by stopping the signal from the nerve to the muscle and prevents muscle contraction. This results in smoother skin for a more youthful and rested appearance. It takes up to a week to see the best results and results last for 3-4 months. Possibly longer in some people.
Common Improvements seen with BOTOX or Dysport Include skin smoothing and brow lifting. This is a minimally invasive way to reduce crow’s feet and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, nose and mouth.
These are well tolerated injections that have very little to no downtime. At Spa V we recommend not laying or bending down for 4 hours after the injections. Don’t massage the area so the neurotoxin can stay where it was injected. Mild swelling or mosquito size bumps may last 2-3 hours. Bruising may occur and resolves in a few days.
We like to see our patients for a 2 week follow up and if there is any asymmetry, this can be touched up at that time.
