At Hector L Di Carlos M.D. P.A. in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we know that no one wants to live with expression lines, especially when they affect your appearance and confidence. We offer two of the most effective neuromodulators, Botox and Dysport, to help our patients achieve smoother and younger-looking skin. With our expertise, you will be able to enjoy long-lasting results.
Neuromodulators: Botox and Dysport
Neuromodulators are wrinkle-relaxing injectables that can temporarily erase the different expression lines that appear on the upper half of the face due to a combination of thinning skin, the aging process, and repetitive expressions.
If you’ve invested in topical anti-aging products to smooth these lines but haven’t seen any improvement, we offer a treatment that can change everything. Our injectable modulators include Botox and Dysport, two popular products that can meet the different aging and cosmetic-related needs of men and women.
Botox is a popular cosmetic injectable known for its ability to deliver wrinkle-reduction benefits. This injectable has been helping men and women achieve their ideal appearance for over 20 years by temporarily eliminating the lines on the upper half of the face that can affect their appearance and confidence. Botox is versatile and can treat different areas of the face.
After your first treatment, you can expect to see results within the first two to four days as the injectable begins relaxing the muscles and the skin begins to relax. Results will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment, with the best results evident in 30 days. Once you receive your injections, you can expect your results to last three to four months. Regularly scheduled follow-up treatment will ensure that you don’t experience an interruption in your results.
An Effective Solution for Various Cosmetic Concerns
Botox is the most versatile injectable among all the neuromodulators available because we can use it to smooth every type of expression line that appears on the upper half of the face. We can use it to smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and even neck lines.
We can also use it for off-label purposes, including scar correction. We can design a treatment plan with Botox that addresses one or several of your concerns so that you can enjoy the results long-term.
A Treatment for TMJ, Hyperhidrosis, and Migraine Pain
Not only can Botox address cosmetic concerns in men and women, but we can also use it to alleviate the pain and symptoms that result from specific medical conditions, including TMJ, hyperhidrosis, and migraine pain.
Depending on your concern, we will create a treatment plan with the right amount of product and inject it into specific muscles around the area causing your symptoms or pain. The ingredients and Botox will relax those muscles, which will promote pain reduction and help alleviate your symptoms.
Dysport is another neuromodulator that is specifically designed to treat frown lines. Frown lines form between the eyebrows; for some people, they appear as light lines; for others, they look like deep indents. They can negatively impact your appearance and cause you to look less approachable. If your frown lines are affecting your confidence and making you unhappy with your appearance, we can develop a treatment plan with Dysport to change that.
Dysport is known for delivering natural-looking results. Once injected into the treatment area, it smooths the skin by relaxing the muscles responsible for lines and wrinkles without altering the rest of your appearance. The treatment is also fast-acting; after a quick 10 to 20-minute treatment, you can see results within the first two to three days. Patients can expect to enjoy results for up to five months, and regular follow-up treatments will help maintain results long time.
What To Expect From the Treatment
Whether we develop a treatment plan that uses Botox or Dysport to address your areas of concern, you can expect a similar treatment process. Both injectables have very fine, thin needles, which promotes optimal comfort during treatment. We can also apply a pre-treatment numbing cream as needed to enhance your treatment experience.
The entire treatment takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete, and then you will be free to go about your day. It will take a few days to see a result, but when they appear, you’ll be able to enjoy them for several months at a time.
Is There Downtime?
These injections are quick: so quick that you can return to work after your appointment. You won’t have to plan around downtime, but there are some ways you should plan to care for your skin post-treatment. We recommend that patients avoid touching, rubbing, or putting pressure on the injection site.
Additionally, you should avoid workouts for the first 24 hours and, if possible, avoid sleeping in a position that would put pressure on your face the night of your treatment. You should also avoid alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours and anti-inflammatory supplements and medications.
