Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport™ Injections in Albany
Our Albany plastic surgery office offers BOTOX ® Cosmetic and Dysport ™ to treat signs of aging in the facial region. Dr. Barach has found that both products provide effective results, and he makes both available to his patients.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are injectable cosmetic enhancements that erase many of the natural signs of aging such as wrinkles in the forehead, nasal root, and crow’s feet areas. These frown lines can change a youthful appearance to one that looks tired or angry.
BOTOX®Cosmetic and Dysport can reduce and possibly even eliminate these frown lines for up to four months, as well prevent further deepening of lines in the future.
These injectables prevent the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles that cause frown lines. The injected muscles relax, allowing your skin to smooth itself. The injections take only 10 to 15 minutes and result in minimal pain. Within days, you will begin to see results as these persistent frown lines begin to melt away. Occasionally, fillers are needed in addition for particularly deep wrinkles.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bruce Barach may administer your BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport injections in the following locations:
- Near the outer region of the eyes (crow’s feet)
- In the forehead region
- Between the eyebrows (“elevens”)
The results of your BOTOX®Cosmetic or Dysport treatment will look completely natural. People are unlikely to comment that you “had work done,” but they are likely to comment that you look rested, refreshed, happy, or younger.
Xeomin is another botulinum toxin type A product that behaves similarly to Botox and Dysport. It is used to temporarily relax facial muscles and minimize frown lines between the eyebrows. It can also be used on crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. Xeomin is comparable to Botox and Dysport in how quickly the results appear and how long they last. The key difference is that the manufacturers claim Xeomin does not contain any additives, so there may be less risk of a patient developing an antibody to the injectable that blocks its response.
