Botox quickly became one of the most popular aesthetic treatments. The main cause of this is its effectiveness, short procedure and mild side effects. Furthermore, unlike cosmetic surgery, botox provides a temporary solution. Even if you don’t like the results, there is an option of quitting at any time. Effect is not permanent and you won’t be stuck with the changes till the rest of your life.

The most important thing about drugs such as Dysport is that they are made from a toxic component. Basis of every botox drug is botulinum toxin. Although it provides extremely good results, it can also lead to numerous issues after the treatment. The toxin is quite debilitating. Only way for us to use it is in minimal quantities. Even then, the product leads to complete loss of muscle function in places where it was injected. This means that we are able not only to remove wrinkles from our face, but also treat other issues like various spasms and excessive sweating. In all these cases, the medicine works as an inhibitor, blocking muscles from accomplishing their goal. Substance is biodegradable and in time, body will absorb it. When it comes to Dysport, it usually last up to four months. After that, additional dosage is required. But, have in mind that each next shot will prolong its future effect, making it last longer.

Although Dysport is a great solution for cervical dystonia, most people use it to remove wrinkles on forehead. There is a general misconception how wrinkles appear on our forehead. Most individuals think that they are product of aging. This is true to an extent; however, lines and fold in this area mostly depend on how often we frown. So, it can even be used by younger people to remove their mimic wrinkles. Product is not recommended to people above 65 or to pregnant women. Besides that, it is necessary to warn your doctor prior to treatment if you have any disease that affects your muscles or nerves, if you have bleeding disorder, history of seizures or strokes, breathing or swallowing issues or if you are allergic to botulinum.

Botox is one the fastest aesthetic procedures. It usually lasts for above 20 minutes and after that, you can return to your daily

routine. But, it is important to follow certain rules in order to avoid irritation. Basically, you shouldn’t do anything that will involve your facial skin or muscles. You shouldn’t drink alcohol or exercise for one day. Also, avoid any cosmetic products because they can interfere with Dysport. Medica Depot team recommends putting ice on your face so that you can reduce potential swelling.

Side effects of using Dysport are usually minimal. They include redness, discomfort, pain, swelling, infection, inflammation. The biggest issue with Dysport and any other botulinum based drugs is that botulinum may spread to other areas of body and lead to botulism. First signs of botulism may appear couple of hours after the treatment and they include fatigue, problems swelling and breathing, loss of vision and loss of bladder control as well as problem speaking. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
