Botox + Dysport
Wrinkles such as worry lines, laugh lines, neck lines, crow’s feet and neck bands are caused by muscles under the skin contracting when we laugh, smile or express emotions facially. BOTOX is so effective because it works on the root of the cause, the muscles. BOTOX temporarily weakens the skin’s muscles, reducing its ability to contract. No contractions mean no wrinkles, and tighter, wrinkle-free skin.
Conveniently located to serve South Burlington, Burlington, and Stowe.
What Can Botox Treat?
Botox and Dysport are incredibly versatile as they can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical concerns.
- vertical lines/frown lines between eyebrows (glabella or 11 lines)
- forehead lines (worry lines)
- lines around the eyes (crow’s feet)
- bunny lines on the nose and smoker’s lines (vertical lines around the lips)
- gummy smile
- above the outer area of the brow for a lifting effect
- corners of the mouth for a downturned smile
- dimpling of the chin (peu d’Orange chin)
- platysmal bands (vertical neck bands)
- masseter for jawline reduction
Am I a Good Candidate for a Botox Treatment?
The best candidates for a Botox or Dysport treatment are men and women who want to treat mild signs of aging non-surgically. Botox and Dysport treatments are so quick that they are popularly known as “lunchtime procedures,” meaning they can be performed on one’s lunch break.
A Botox or Dysport treatment is highly recommended for people with realistic expectations and dedication to treatment maintenance.
Breastfeeding or pregnant women may not be considered for a Botox or Dysport treatment. Schedule a consultation with our skin experts at GLOWAESTHETICS to find out whether you are a good candidate.
What to Expect During a Botox Treatment
At GLOWAESTHETICS, patient expectation and satisfaction are paramount. At your first Botox or Dysport appointment, you and your provider will review your unique anatomy and discuss problem areas and goals. Are you looking to address a furrowed brow? Crow’s feet? A gummy smile? As a team, you will develop a mutual understanding of what you’d like to accomplish with realistic expectations.
The actual treatment only takes 10 minutes. Dr. DiMeola and our aesthetic injectors use an ultra-fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox or Dysport comfortably. Most patients compare the Botox or Dysport injections to a “quick” pinch. Redness or swelling is minor after a Botox or Dysport treatment. In fact, most patients resume normal activities immediately after. You should avoid touching or disturbing the area for 8-10 hours after receiving Botox or Dysport. GLOWAESTHETICS will provide post-care information and schedule a follow-up.
Botox and Dysport patients report a more fresh, youthful look and boosted confidence. Results can be seen in 7-12 days, however, after 14 days you will see the full effect. Typically, Botox or Dysport results last for 3-4 months. It is recommended that you keep up on treatments for longer-lasting results. Patients that have been receiving Botox or Dysport for years report their results last longer and they are able to extend the time between treatments.
Botox Treatment Aftercare
Minimal bruising and swelling are expected after a Botox or Dysport treatment session. Dr. DiMeola can recommend methods of reducing bruising and swelling, such as application of a cold compress.
Avoid touching your face for the first 4 hours after the treatment. This will allow the Botox or Dysport to remain in the area where it is injected.
Relax for the day, maintain a normal heart rate, and avoid strenuous activities. This will prevent you from sweating, which can increase redness and swelling. Facial movements like frowning, smiling, or raising your eyebrows are safe and will help the benefits of Botox become visible earlier after treatment.
I would give 10 stars if I could!! I’ve been coming to Glow Aesthetics semi-regularly for the past couple of years and had different treatments from brow waxing and tinting, to hydrafacials, VI peel, botox and laser hair removal. Each provider is courteous, kind and just all-around friendly and super helpful. If you ever want (or need) to have any of these services (and more) done, I can’t recommend Glow enough.
