Botox® and Dysport®
Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® are some of the most popular cosmetic injectables available and are used to reduce–and even prevent– the appearance of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Results typically last up to four months and can be easily maintained with follow-up treatments.
The use of Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport® for the treatment of mild to moderate facial lines can be both preventative and corrective and provides long-term improvement in skin texture with consistent maintenance. A common misconception about Botox or Dysport is that the goal of the procedure is to eliminate facial movement and expression resulting in a “frozen” look. As an experienced injector, Dr. Champagne utilizes a microdroplet technique that will preserve your facial expression as well as diminish those unwanted facial lines. Dr. Champagne understands the importance of an individualized treatment plan, and by placing small droplets in strategically chosen areas, he can achieve excellent results that will enhance your natural beauty.
In addition to improving facial lines and wrinkles, neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport can also be used to treat conditions of excess sweating in areas such as the axilla (aka. armpit), soles of the feet and palms of the hand. Moreover, one of the latest beauty trends is the use of Botox in the scalp to significantly reduce scalp sweating during exercise and other strenuous activities thus prolonging the results of hair blowouts. Also, recent anecdotal evidence has shown an improvement in hair growth and thickness when Botox is injected into the thin muscles surrounding the scalp. In theory, by relaxing these muscles, there is improved blood flow throughout the scalp which creates an environment of increased oxygen and nutrient levels surrounding the hair follicles or root of the hair. Patients are truly enjoying the effects of Botox in the scalp when injected by expert injector Dr. Jason Champagne.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
- Mild to moderate crow’s feet
- Mild to moderate forehead lines
- Mild to moderate frown lines (between the brows)
- Lines over the nose (“bunny” lines)
- Can also be used for chin dimpling and dense neck bands in some instances
- Patients with excess sweating in the axillae (armpits), soles of the feet, palms of the hand, and in the scalp
- Patients with genetic hair loss may be a good candidate to help improve hair growth and thickness
- Must not be pregnant or nursing
- Those with deep lines at rest can still benefit but may also require filler injections for optimal results
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?
Because Dr. Champagne uses very small needles and a microdroplet technique, there is little to no down time. Small areas of redness and swelling fade within one hour after treatment, and Dr. Champagne takes great care to avoid bruising. If bruising does occur, resolution varies between patients and can sometimes last several days. Headaches may also occur and typically subside within 24 hours.
