Incorporating BOTOX® or Dysport® into Your Regular Beauty Routine

When it comes to making a drastic difference in your appearance, you don’t necessarily have to call in the big guns of plastic surgery. A small needle loaded with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® pack a powerful punch, and it can be part of your regular beauty routine.

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. Thomas P. McHugh and our team of top-notch aestheticians understand the many ways to effectively approach anti-aging treatments. While he offers many surgical procedures that deliver fantastic results, there are times when an ongoing and less invasive regimen with cosmetic injectables like BOTOX and Dysport may be all you need.

We also offer Dysport, which has the same active ingredient as BOTOX — botulinum type A. Here’s a look at why incorporating BOTOX or Dysport into your regular beauty routine will have people guessing about your age.

The eyes have it

Aging can do a number on almost every part of your body, as your skin wrinkles and sags from head to toe. But the signs of aging tend to show up on your highly visible face first, which makes sense given it’s the most exposed area on your body. And these signs tend to develop around your eyes, brows, and forehead before they make their way elsewhere.

Since your eyes play an incredibly large role in how you communicate with the world, any anti-aging effort in this area is impactful, giving you a much younger and vital appearance overall.

BOTOX and Dysport are simple and easy

One of the many reasons why BOTOX and Dysport are so popular is not only that they’re effective, but their hassle-free. 

When you come in, it takes us just minutes to inject your target areas, and you can get on with your day without skipping a beat.

The results of both BOTOX and Dysport aren’t immediate. They become evident gradually with optimal results apparent after about two weeks. 

BOTOX is safe

The FDA has approved BOTOX to temporarily make moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. What this means for you is that BOTOX has been tried and tested and found safe enough for general use.

There is some risk for minor side effects, such as bruising or redness at the site of the injections, but these are usually short-lived. In rare cases, people have allergic reactions to the product, but we thoroughly evaluate your medical history beforehand.

We also have considerable experience with BOTOX, which is important when choosing a provider.

Just four times a year

The results you get from BOTOX and Dysport generally last three months, though results may vary. Many of our patients visit with us four times a year to keep up their great results, and if you consider how quick and easy these treatments are, BOTOX doesn’t represent a very large investment of your time.

The benefits of regular BOTOX treatments

There’s also some evidence that if you make BOTOX a regular part of your beauty regimen, the results may last longer as the muscles in your face become shorter and smaller because of disuse. This may also mean you need less BOTOX with each visit as time goes on.

As well, BOTOX can prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place, which may help you stave off the oncoming signs of aging.
