Botox & Dysport

What is Botox and Dysport?

Over time, frequent facial movements can result in fine lines and creases, even when the face is at rest. These wrinkles may convey fatigue, sadness, or anger without any intentional expression. Targeted application of Botox or Dysport in precise areas can temporarily ease muscle tension and diminish unwanted lines. Untreated facial regions remain unchanged. Side effects are uncommon and typically confined to the injection site, such as mild redness, swelling, or bruising. Mild headaches following injections are also frequently reported. ⁣

What areas does CURRENT treat with injectables? 

Our expert injector is experienced with preventative and corrective treatments for lines and wrinkles, as well as other concerns Botox or Dysport may treat:  ⁣

  • Vertical lines between the brows
  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • “Crows feet” or lines around the eyes
  • “Bunny lines” or lines on the nose
  • Platysmal bands or vertical lines visible on the neck
  • Masseter muscle to soften the look of a square jaw or help with TMJ
  • “Pebble chin” to soften the chin texture
  • Gummy smile

What is the treatment like?

Before your treatment, we kindly request that you refrain from consuming caffeine, anti-inflammatory drugs, and blood-thinners, if feasible, to minimize the risk of bruising. Our Botox and Dysport sessions are typically swift, lasting between 15 to 30 minutes.⁣ There is minimal downtime following the treatment but we advise against strenuous exercise for the remainder of the day and recommend avoiding tight-fitting hats, facials, or massages for two weeks. No laying down for 3 hours post injection. It may take up to two weeks for the product to take full effect, so we suggest waiting the full two weeks before scheduling a touch-up appointment.

How many units will I need?

We often receive inquiries about the number of units required for treatment. This determination is based on the professional judgment of our injectors. It primarily hinges on the extent of muscle movement, depth of lines at rest, and the desired level of movement post-injection. Preferences vary, as some individuals prefer minimal movement while others opt for a more natural appearance with slight movement. The above chart outlines the average units needed per area, but please note that these figures are generalizations. For precise pricing and recommendations, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us.
