Have you ever wondered how some people remain effortlessly youthful, their skin untouched by wrinkles or creases? The secret to an effortlessly radiant, smooth complexion is simple. Thanks to neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport, you can diminish existing wrinkles or delay the onset of new wrinkles. The Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads offers Dysport and Botox in Newport News and Williamsburg to help you reclaim and maintain your youthfulness.

Diminish Unwanted Facial
Wrinkles & Creases

Botox and Dysport are popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments known as neuromodulators. They both use forms of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax specific facial muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These treatments commonly target areas like forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer expertly administered Botox and Dysport treatments to help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed look without downtime.

Botox & Dysport Treat:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
  • Bunny lines (nose wrinkles)
  • Neck bands
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Other dynamic wrinkles on the face

How Botox & Dysport Work

Botox and Dysport work by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. These neuromodulators contain forms of botulinum toxin that temporarily block acetylcholine’s action in the targeted muscles.

This prevents the muscles from contracting excessively, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and more youthful-looking. The effects last several months before the body metabolizes the neurotoxin, allowing muscle function to return gradually.

Patient Testimonials

Botox vs. Dysport: What’s the Difference?

Botox and Dysport are both popular neuromodulator treatments used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, but they have some differences. Botox has been around for a long time and has a well-established reputation in the cosmetic industry. It was the first neurotoxin to receive FDA approval for treating dynamic wrinkles, so it has been used extensively for decades.
Dysport, on the other hand, is a newer alternative. One key difference is their molecular size; Dysport’s molecules are smaller than Botox’s, which may result in quicker onset and potentially different diffusion patterns. This can make Dysport a preferred option for larger treatment areas or individuals looking for a faster effect.

Ultimately, the choice between Botox and Dysport often comes down to personal preference and individual response. Both treatments offer nearly identical results and have similar formulations, so the difference is minimal. Our aesthetic providers will carefully evaluate your concerns and recommend the most suitable option based on your needs.

Botox & Dysport Treatment in Hampton Roads

You’ll begin with a consultation with one of our experienced practitioners, who will discuss your specific concerns and desired outcomes. Once we determine whether Botox or Dysport is the right choice for you, we’ll proceed with the treatment.

During your treatment of Dysport or Botox in Newport News and Williamsburg, you’ll be comfortably seated in one of our treatment rooms. We’ll cleanse the targeted area to ensure it’s free of makeup or oils. Using a very fine needle, we’ll make a series of small injections into the muscles responsible for the wrinkles you want to address. While you may feel a slight pinprick or stinging sensation, most patients find the discomfort minimal and well-tolerable.

The process takes 10-15 minutes, allowing you to immediately return to your daily activities. Some patients experience mild redness or swelling at the injection sites, which usually subsides within a few hours to a day. Over the next few days to a week, the neuromodulator will gradually take effect, resulting in smoother skin. The results continue improving for two weeks, and the final results last for 3 to 6 months.

Botox & Dysport Recovery Guidelines:

  • Refrain from touching or massaging the treated area for several hours after the procedure.
  • Remain in an upright position for at least four hours post-treatment.
  • Avoid rigorous physical activity for the rest of the day.
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours.
  • Stay out of direct sunlight and tanning beds to prevent potential skin irritation.
  • Apply a cold compress gently to the treated area to reduce swelling or discomfort.
  • Adhere to any specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner.
  • Steer clear of high-heat environments, such as saunas and hot tubs, for 48 hours.
