What Are BOTOX and Dysport?
As individuals age, fine lines and wrinkles often appear on the face. BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport wrinkle relaxers can temporarily smooth the appearance of moderate to severe Crow's feet, frown lines ("elevens"), and horizontal forehead creases. BOTOX and Dysport are filtered type A strains of botulinum toxin. These neurotoxin treatments work to temporarily relax the muscles that cause facial movements, letting the skin take on a smoother texture. At MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center, BOTOX and Dysport treatments are a minimally invasive option to help men and women maintain a younger, refreshed appearance. Please call our office in Bowling Green, KY to learn more!
What Are the Benefits of BOTOX and Dysport?
Lines and creases on your forehead and between the eyes can cause you to appear more aged than you truly are. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX and Dypsort, are used to help diminish the appearance of these concerns by temporarily preventing the capacity to change facial expressions. A wrinkle relaxer treatment at MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center provides additional benefits for Bowling Green, KY patients, including:
- Treating forehead lines, Crow's feet, and frown lines around the eyes
- Creating a newly refreshed appearance
- Temporarily halting future wrinkles
- Fast, surgery-free treatment
- No downtime involved after the procedure
- Outcomes are natural-looking and can last for up to 3 – 4 months
Am I A Candidate for BOTOX and Dysport?
Women and men who prefer a noninvasive treatment to minimize forehead creases, Crow's feet, or frown lines may be prime candidates for BOTOX or Dysport injections at MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center. It can be a good cosmetic option if you are experiencing noticeable glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that result in a tired or older look. BOTOX injections have grown in favor among younger individuals, as well. Though adults between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet exhibit the early signs of aging, BOTOX or Dysport may be used as a preventive option to stave off the normal aging process by temporarily minimizing or slowing the development of facial wrinkles.
How Do BOTOX and Dysport Work?
During your consultation at MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center, Dr. Richard Welch will perform a facial evaluation to help you decide which areas may benefit from cosmetic injections. BOTOX and Dysport injections are performed as quick, in-office services so your injections can typically be administered during the same visit. The neurotoxin will be gently injected into the specified areas of your forehead or upper face. BOTOX and Dysport may provide up to four months of natural-looking cosmetic enhancements for many individuals. Dr. Welch will recommend how often you should receive injections as part of a personalized plan to help you reach your desired outcomes.

BOTOX® and Dysport® FAQs
Can I go back to work after getting wrinkle relaxers?
You can absolutely return to work after your treatment. In fact, many patients come in for treatment on their lunch break. You may have some bumps or redness at the injection site, but this shouldn't last long.
What should I not do after getting BOTOX or Dysport?
After your treatment, you should avoid exercising or strenuous activity for about 24 hours and you should not rub your face where you had your treatment performed. It's also suggested that you avoid extreme heat (tanning, hot tubs, etc.) and that you do not wear makeup for about a day as well.
When do I need to come in for follow-up treatments?
Most patients can expect their results to last 3-4 months, so we typically suggest coming back around that time in order to maintain your results.
How many wrinkle relaxer units/injections will I need?
The quantity of wrinkle relaxer doses given could differ according to the individual situation and the depth of your facial wrinkles and creases. Dr. Welch will recommend the necessary number of injections based on your targeted aesthetic goals and if you wish to address Crow's feet, the forehead, or between the eyes. Our team may recommend returning for treatments every 3 – 4 months at MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center to keep up your newly restored look.
Do wrinkle relaxer treatments hurt?
As with most injection-based therapies, patients will notice a slight stinging feeling as the treatment is administered. Note that any discomfort lasts several seconds, and most patients find this quick sensation very tolerable. Our team will help you remain comfortable throughout your appointment. At your request, we can utilize a numbing agent to make your injections more enjoyable.
Is there a difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers can help revitalize your face, but they function in their own way. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, briefly paralyze the muscles in your face to smooth minor furrows and creases. Dermal fillers, however, add volume to hollow parts of the face and fill out deep lines. Our team will be able to tell you more regarding the advantages of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers at your consultation at our Bowling Green, KY facility.
