Botox Q & A

What are Botox and Dysport?

Botox® and Dysport® are types of wrinkle-reducing injections made from a purified version of the botulinum toxin. They temporarily halt muscle activity in small muscles where lines form from repeated activity. Smiling, frowning, and other expressions can result in permanent wrinkles that make you look more aged and furrowed.

What areas are treated with Botox and Dysport?

Both wrinkle reducers are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on your face. Specific areas treated include:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows

Board-certified Dr. Knight and the rest of the Knight Dermatology Institute team can help determine the best treatment plan for your aesthetic goals.

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are very similar injections. The differences are in the potency of trace proteins, which can make one more effective than the other for some people. The specialists at Knight Dermatology Institute review your aesthetic goals, your wrinkles’ characteristics, and your skin to determine which is best for you.

How long do the effects of Dysport and Botox last?

Botox and Dysport offer a temporary reduction of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Each lasts about three to four months, depending on your skin’s characteristics and the area treated. You can schedule regular treatments to maintain your more youthful look.

Do wrinkle-reducing injections hurt?

The application of Botox and Dysport does require a needle, so you will feel pinching during treatments. Most people tolerate the injections quite well. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to your provider at Knight Dermatology Institute about icing or using a topical anesthetic prior to injections.

Is there downtime necessary with Botox and Dysport?

The injections require no downtime. You can schedule an appointment for wrinkle-reducing injections during your lunch hour and go right back to work afterward. You may have slight bruising or swelling at the injection sites, but this is easily covered by makeup.
