Botox and Dysport are medical preparations on the basis of botulinic toxin, that are injected into mimic muscles and temporarily dehydrate them. Due to that, skin becomes smoother and wrinkles are leveled. Botox and Dysport are manufactured by different companies and are obtained with various ways of synthesis. However, they are similar by effect on mimic muscles. Both preparations are administered by injections.
Why there is a need for injection of botulinic toxin
The process of ageing is a natural process which is manifested by emerging of both small and deep wrinkles, folds, color of skin changes, deformation of facial oval etc. This process is aggravated by impact of such multiple factors as hyperactivity of mimic muscles, reduction of elasticity and turgor of skin, atrophy of subcutaneous fatty tissue, and resorption of cartilage and bone structures.
Injections of botulinic toxin of type A (Botox®, Dysport) at this moment are the most effective method of treatment of age-related changes of facial skin, wrinkles in particular. Injections against wrinkles are a wonderful opportunity to extend youth while not resorting to surgical intervention.
Action of Botox and Dysport
As a result of injection of botulinic toxin, there is a temporary selective chemical denervation of muscles of the face. This gives an opportunity to influence the reason of occurrence of hyperkinetic wrinkles while contributing to their leveling. Botox and Dysport are very creative preparations. With their help one can both level wrinkles and model expression of face. . For example, to elevate tips of eyebrows, create an effect of more widely placed eyes, rise corners of the mouth or tip of the nose.
The preparations are used in very small doses and therefore they do not cause an addiction..
How does the procedure of botulinotherapy take place
While visiting the doctor, the patient should tell of himself/herself to enable the doctor to clarify all contraindications to the procedure because botulinotherapy is not indicated to everyone.
Botulinotherapy is a rather simple technique in skillful hands of a doctor taking 15-20 minutes of time.
The procedure takes place in sterile conditions. The patient stays in a convenient sitting position.
Skin is disinfected before injections. Then the doctor makes points where the drug will be injected. For right positioning of points, the patient has to involve his/her mimic muscles (to frown, to smile, etc.). By zones, the preparation can be injected in the area of forehead, glabella, around eyes, lower third of the neck, cleavage. Also Botox is injected in axillary region, feet and palms for correction of hyperhidrosis.
Injections of Botox and Dysport are made with sterile fine insulin needle intramuscularly by points. Certain dose is injected estimated by the doctor on the basis of mimic activity of the muscle and wishes of the patient. Quantity of drug is measured in units of action.
Effect of the procedure
An effect from injections is not immediate and takes place on 2nd-5th day. Gradually the patient notices that he/she finds it difficult to frown with eyebrows, hard to look surprised, no wrinkles appear as he or she smiles. Full impact of the drug is unfolded in 2 weeks. Additional correction is also possible at that time.
How often one has to do injections against wrinkles?
On average, the effect from injections of Botox and Dysport lasts for 4-6 months, After that, mimic wrinkles (geese feet, wrinkles in the area of forehead and glabella) return to the previous position. Therefore, in order to reach the necessary effect, the injections have to be repeated. The price of injections of Botox and Dysport is rather acceptable and repeated injections often provide for a more lengthy effect than the first ones.
