Last year there were over 7.4 million Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments in the US.
Why is Botox so popular? At our Santa Barbara medical spa, our clients tell us they love Botox/Dysport because:
- It’s a quick treatment with no downtime
- Botox / Dysport is affordable (in comparison with a plastic surgery procedure)
- Great results!
Botox and Dysport are primarily used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet (around the eyes). It may be used in other areas of the face (only recommended if your nurse is trained and experienced). Injected Botox blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles which prevents them from contracting. The result is a softening and relaxing of wrinkles in the injected area. A Botox/Dysport treatment takes about 30 minutes and there is very little discomfort. Most people see full results one to two weeks after the appointment. Results last 3 to 4+ months.
