Eliminate Wrinkles and Rejuvenate Your Skin with BOTOX - DYSPORT and Other Injectables
Some of the most obvious signs of aging include wrinkles and fine lines, but what if you want to keep your age a secret? With cosmetic injectables such as BOTOX, and Dysport, administered at our Little Rock, AR, practice, your age truly becomes just a number as you achieve a youthful, smooth, and rejuvenated appearance. These non-surgical treatments are popular for both men and women from their mid 20's to their mid to late 70's.
Dr. Michael Devlin personally performs all BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments, as well as the administration of dermal fillers including Restylane and JUVEDERM, unlike other offices where where these plastic surgery procedures are performed by non-physicians. Dr. Devlin believes that these treatments should be performed only by physicians who have adequate knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy to ensure the safety of the patient.
The Benefits of BOTOX
Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX works by relaxing the muscles that eventually contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Women and men visit Dr. Michael Devlin for BOTOX treatment to experience the following benefits:
- Reduced appearance of moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows
- Reduction of forehead wrinkles and crow's feet
- Non-surgical treatment of facial wrinkles
- Fast and noticeable results
- Quick treatment with minimal to no downtime
Additionally, when BOTOX is injected into the correct locations, it can also serve as a non-surgical brow lift. While results are not comparable to a surgical brow lift, the outcome is subtle and natural-looking.
What to Expect When You Receive BOTOX
To begin your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, Dr. Michael Devlin will administer injections to the targeted area. Typically, treatment takes ten to 30 minutes, and patients can return to work immediately after the procedure. A topical anesthetic may be used for patient comfort; however, many patients report that receiving BOTOX is virtually painless.
Recovery from a BOTOX treatment is easy because it is a quick procedure with no downtime. While some patients may experience mild swelling and bruising, these side effects typically dissipate quickly. Results can be seen within a few days of your treatment, and they may last up to three months.
What Is Dysport?
Dr. Michael Devlin also offers patients Dysport to treat lines and wrinkles. Dysport is an FDA-approved alternative to BOTOX that temporarily improves moderate to severe lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. Before the procedure begins, the targeted area may be numbed for patient comfort.
As with BOTOX injections, the procedure is quick and patients can return to their normal activities immediately following treatment. Results of Dysport treatment may be noticeable as soon as one to two days following treatment – faster than BOTOX. Further, Dysport may last up to between three and four months.
Why Choose Xeomin?
Most people have heard of BOTOX or Dysport, but very few have heard of Xeomin – which is the most recent BOTOX alternative to hit the market. They are actually very similar: they both consist of botulinum toxin type A, and the same number of units are used for treatment.
Xeomin is a purer form of BOTOX: it contains no additional additives. Patients are less likely to develop an allergy or become resistant to its effects.
Benefits of Xeomin:
Xeomin offers a variety of benefits, including:
- The elimination of frown lines, forehead lines, crow's feet, bunny lines (on the nose), and smoker's lines.
- Xeomin is slightly less expensive. You can expect to spend approximately $200-300 on the site treated.
- It can lift and arch the brows, giving the appearance of a temporary brow lift.
- It should not dramatically change your facial appearance. You should still be able to smile, frown, or look surprised, showing all of your normal facial expressions.
Results: What to Expect
Both BOTOX and Xeomin take about seven days before the full effects are seen whereas Dysport starts working in 24 hours.
Xeomin lasts three to four months on average, but will vary between each individual person. It is not necessary to wait three months to return for treatment. You may return for your next Xeomin treatment as soon as there is more movement or there are more wrinkles than you would like.
It is recommended that at the time of your treatment you schedule your next appointment for optimal anti-aging and preventive benefits.
