Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable neurotoxin that temporarily smooths out lines and wrinkles to give you a more youthful appearance. IMAC Med Spa uses two types of neurotoxin injections:

Botox

Botox contains botulinum toxin A and is a prescription injection made by Allergan®. Botox is FDA-approved to temporarily diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. 

Dysport

Dysport contains abobotulinumtoxinA and is a prescription injection made by Galderma®. Dysport is specifically used to diminish the appearance of frown lines temporarily.

Your provider can review the benefits of Botox and Dysport during your consultation and help you determine the one best suited to help you achieve your beauty goals.

How does Botox or Dysport work?

Botox and Dysport help diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses in the muscles that receive the injection. They reduce the muscle activity under your skin by stopping the nerve impulses that cause lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.

What happens during Botox injections?

At IMAC Med Spa, your provider performs your Botox injections in the comfort of the office. The injections only take a few minutes and make the perfect lunchtime beauty appointment.

The needles used to inject Botox or Dysport are small and cause minimal pain. However, if you’re sensitive to pain, adjustments can be made to your treatment so you feel as little discomfort as possible.

There’s no downtime following your injections. However, you should avoid any strenuous exercise for at least two hours afterward. 

Depending on whether you receive Botox or Dysport, you may start to notice an improvement in your appearance within 24 to 72 hours. 

How long does Botox last?

Both Botox and Dysport keep your skin smooth and youthful for up to four months. Your IMAC Med Spa provider recommends you return to the office as soon as you see lines and wrinkles returning so they can repeat your injections.
