What is Botox?
Most people understand Botox as used to treat fine lines and wrinkles but may not fully understand how it works. It is formulated of relaxing muscle proteins called neuromodulators, which are common cosmetic tools used for enhancement and rejuvenation.
Botox is recognized as the first brand of neuromodulator in the market. Dysport recently joined the team. The Botox brow lift provides similar results to a surgical procedure. Different brow techniques can enhance the Brow's appearance. However, it mainly depends on individual needs, anatomy, and brow shape. An injectable expert can provide a customized treatment that can lift or lower the brows' inner portion, arch, or outer portion. In addition, Botox Brow Lift can help treat the fine lines between the brow area and elevate the brows' height. It relaxes the underlying muscles, which results in skin smoothening. Then forehead muscles pull up the relaxed muscles and open the eyes by elevating the brow area. The physician may provide additional injections of Botox at the end of the brow area to allow the forehead muscles to pull the area. The final results of Botox Brow Lift depend on the tone of muscles and the patient's age.
What is Dysport?
Botox is more notorious for facial rejuvenation, but its alternatives are available. One of the best replacements is Dysport. It is a neurotoxin that is formulated to limit muscle movements in the treatment area. The limited muscle movement helps to fade fine lines and wrinkles. There is no major distinction between the two, but Dysport is more beneficial in treating moderate to severe wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are dosed differently. For example, 50 units of Botox are not equal to 50 units of Dysport. Secondly, they are diluted differently. Dysport is more diluted than Botox. However, the significant dilution does not mean less effectiveness. It only means a higher quantity of Dysport may be used to achieve the same results with less Botox. The molecular size of the Dysport formula is smaller as compared to Botox. In some areas, it is beneficial, while for others, it is not. So, it is crucial to consider an experienced practitioner for the proper dosing and placement of neurotoxins. Dysport diffuses faster than Botox, meaning a larger treatment area can be treated with fewer injections.
Both Botox and Dysport are excellent for lifting the brows. However, the results of both neuromodulators last for 3-4 months, and you will need follow-up injections to maintain the results.
