Many patients are turning to non-surgical treatments to achieve a refreshed and glowing appearance. Some of the most popular of these options include Botox, Dysport, and other dermal fillers. These minimally invasive treatments offer a range of benefits, helping individuals achieve a youthful glow without the need for extensive procedures or recovery time.

For a limited time, Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, our aesthetic nurse practitioner, is offering 20% off all injectables during the month of December! Here are a few of our favorite options and their benefits.

Botox and Dysport

Botox and Dysport are two products that are quick, safe, and proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Facial wrinkles can occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions, such as squinting, laughing, and smiling. Botox and Dysport treatments are injected into the skin, relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles and creating a rejuvenated appearance. Treatment results last three to four months, are visible within five days of treatment, and can be repeated effectively when the results eventually fade.

How are Botox and Dysport Different?

Although they are both a type of facial injection that use the same botulinum toxin, Botox and Dysport contain different proteins. Botox contains a protein shell around the modulator, which takes longer to break down. Dysport contains a milk protein that spreads once it is injected, which breaks down more quickly. This variance in protein breakdown means that Botox results typically last longer than those of Dysport.

What About Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers smooth the skin by plumping areas in the face to regenerate the youthful contours of your skin. They are used to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, enhance volume, and shape the contours of the cheeks and chin.

One of the most popular types of dermal fillers offered by Dr. Paik and Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, is our hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. Hyaluronic acids occur naturally in the body to provide volume and fullness to the skin, and they have been proven safe and effective for more than a decade. Because HA fillers utilize natural fluids of the body and increase natural collagen production, the effects are natural-looking and can last up to a year.

No matter which type of facial injection you receive, there’s no doubt you’ll love the boosted confidence that comes from a newly rejuvenated appearance.
