FAQs about Botox & Dysport treatment

Sharing some of the questions we get asked most frequently about Botox & Dysport.

How long do Botox & Dysport last?

Botox is a neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve signals that make muscles contract. Lines and wrinkles come from the same muscles contracting over and over again, so relaxing those muscles and limiting their movement results in smoother looking skin.Although every individual is different, most people see results from Botox injections in about 7 to 9 days. The full effect may take up to two weeks to develop, however. In general, those results will last 3 to 4 months, depending on how fast your body metabolizes the injection. Patients who want to maintain their results over longer periods of time can schedule maintenance treatments every 3 to 4 months.

Botox at our office is provided by Dr. Ardila, Nurse Kellie, and Nurse Dianna, who are all skilled injectors and can answer any questions you might have.

What’s the downtime for Botox & Dysport treatment?

No downtime is needed for botox treatment. You can expect a small red bump at the injection site, which will fade over the course of about an hour.  There is no bruising or swelling with Botox treatment.

Do I need numbing for Botox & Dysport treatment?

Botox is administered at the targeted site with a fine needle. Patients tend to report a little discomfort during the injection itself, with no pain afterward. No anesthesia is needed. The procedure is so quick, and you can return to normal activity right away. (It is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise, massaging the area, or laying down immediately afterward.)

How are dermal fillers different than Botox & Dysport?

Not all wrinkles are caused primarily by repeated muscle action. The wrinkles in the lower part of your face can also be caused by a change in the shape of your face over time, in part through the loss of fat and collagen. Rather than reducing muscle movement, dermal fillers add volume to targeted spots to smooth wrinkles and add contour. Dermal fillers and Botox are often used in combination to achieve the best results.

How many units of Botox or Dysport do I need?

At your RiverwalkMD visit we will review any questions, discuss your goals, and provide a recommendation on the number of units recommended to treat the specific areas you'd like to focus on. Typical areas we treat include crows feet, forehead, '11's' between the brow, brow lifts, lip flips, and marionette lines. We can work within your budget by prioritiing certain focal areas, or developing a treatment time that spreads the areas we focus on out over a series of visits to our office.
