Dynamic facial wrinkles are part of our expressive nature, they are caused by natural animation of the face, and in fact, even babies have dynamic facial wrinkles. However, as we get older, these wrinkles can become static facial wrinkles, wrinkles that, while caused by a natural expression, become etched into our facial skin. Most commonly found around the eyes (Crows Feet) or in the forehead area, (Elevens) these wrinkles can make us look tired, sometimes angry, and take away our youthful appearance. Fortunately, Dr. Mobley and his Beauty Now team have the solution.+

Botulinum exotoxin is supplied by two different companies either as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport (R). These medications chemically weaken muscle by temporarily blocking the communication between the nerve fiber and the muscle resulting in the inability to contract the muscles of the upper face. As the muscles of the upper face are relaxed chemically, the overlying skin will show much less wrinkles. The safety of these medications are well established, as it has been used therapeutically for over 30 years.
In the past, as the Director of Facial Plastic Surgery at the University of Utah, Dr. Mobley has performed thousands of injections of these medications. This pedigree of excellence continues as Dr. Mobley directs the Beauty Now Team. Both medications are good but current research seems to show some advantages to the newer medication, Dysport. Dysport begins to relax the muscles 3-4 days earlier than Botox Cosmetic. This can be particularly important if you are doing the treatment right before an important event such as a wedding or class reunion. There is good evidence that Dysport will last up to one month longer in many patients. A few patients do not seem to get this extra month of action- but in that case, the medication lasts at least as long as a traditional Botox Cosmetic treatment. These medications are nearly identical chemically and cost the same to the patient and are equally safe with a very low risk of side effects when administered by the professionals of the Beauty Now Team.
If you desire a slight improvement in your look or a “cleaning up” of age-related wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport may be for you. It has become a superb option for the patient hesitant to undergo surgery, yet wants to erase the deep creases and furrows of the face. By relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles, you can rid yourself of the heavy tension look or remove a misrepresented, tired and angry appearance. Following treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport, you can expect to appear more relaxed and rested. These medications are also commonly used to reduce the heavy vertical creases between the eyebrows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and smooth out the crow’s feet area of the eyes.
Everyone has different needs and facial structures, so the amount of Dysport® or Botox® necessary to complete treatments varies. In addition, the treatment depends upon how much smoothness the patient wants, the deepness of their lines and wrinkles and how many areas of the face are to be treated.
Without a personal consultation, estimating the cost of Dysport® or Botox® treatment is difficult. The medication is provided in units, and the total cost for treatment is based on the number of units used. Unit sizes are different for the two cosmetic injectables, as the companies use different measuring systems. However, the pricing works out to be roughly the same, regardless of which medication is used.
Generally speaking, most consumers can expect to pay between $150 and $600 per Botox® or Dysport® treatment session. Some patients don’t need repeat injections for close to four months, while others prefer to have treatment every 10 weeks.
Botox® and Dysport® injections are safe and effective, and treatment from Kandice and the skilled Beauty Now team can provide a more attractive, well-rested and youthful facial appearance. Schedule a consultation today to determine whether Botox® or Dysport® is right for you.
