Anti-wrinkle Injections

Wrinkles are something that everyone gets as they age. But there are a range of other factors such as the UV rays and pollution that cause wrinkles as well. Fine lines and crow’s feet make you look far older than you really are and this impacts your confidence levels. While there isn’t much you can do to stop the natural aging process your skin goes through, there are certain solutions that can help to reduce its effects. At Citydoc Integrative Healthcare we offer a range of solutions including anti-wrinkle injections.

About Anti-wrinkle Injections

These are very small amounts of a kind of botulinum type A that’s injected right into the muscles; this relaxes them & reduces the wrinkles. Getting these injections might be a suitable option in case you have:

  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Crows feet and smile lines around the eyes
  • Mini brow lift (or eyebrow flair reshaping)

The best age for men & women to get anti-wrinkle injections is when they are in their early 20s & upwards. Both, Dysport and Botox are largely similar- they are variants of botulinum type A that’s used to relax muscles which cause frown lines as well as the other over-active muscles of the face, such as crow’s feet and forehead lines. These 2 treatments are like comparing 2 varieties of apples- for example, the Gala apple and the Fuji apple are different, but they are apples all the same. Dysport is a much smaller-sized molecule and so its unit measurement is also different from Botox.

Both these anti-wrinkle treatments have been in use for a number of years (Dysport has started being used in Europe only recently). They have a very high safety profile & they can be used on different parts of the body. They both have to be injected every three to six months. In some offices, Dysport might be a little less expensive; however the cost depends on where you are getting it done and the total number of visits required to accomplish the goals. Both of them have very similar side-effects and efficacy.

In most of the double-blind studies, the patient as well as the doctors were unable to tell what the difference between these 2 were. There is some research that suggests Dysport might have a quicker action and that its effects might be longer lasting. It also has the ability to spread much farther from the site where the injection is administered- this means it’s easier and more effective to treat a larger area of fine wrinkles such as those covered by crow’s feet, and fewer injections are required.

However, Dysport has a tendency to spread to the upper eyelid and surrounding muscles, which you don’t want relaxed. This is why it’s important that only an experienced physician give you this treatment. The Food Drug Administration has stressed that when it’s given for approved uses (such as the correction of various facial wrinkles) at the approved doses, botulinum toxins are completely safe. Across the world, millions of people have been treated with these, very safely for many years.
