While most people don’t think about cosmetic treatments on a daily basis, some treatments are so popular that they have become household names. Botox® fits that bill, as one of the most recognizable treatments for wrinkle reduction, and the similar product Dysport® is highly popular as well. Statistics vary between organizations like the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and The Aesthetic Society, but they all agree that there are millions of Botox® and Dysport® injections performed every year in the US.
If you haven’t given these wrinkle reduction injections a try, you might wonder what makes them so popular. Why do so many people treat themselves to these procedures on an ongoing basis? At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we proudly help patients every day to get the result they want from their injections, and there are a few particular reasons why Botox® and Dysport® are so appealing. Together, our providers have extensive facial injection experience, performing an average of 9,000 injections each year in Atlanta.
Effective Wrinkle Reduction
Both Botox® and Dysport® injections are long-standing procedures with a history of exceptional results. In fact, as of 2022, Botox® has been FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction for 20 years, and Dysport® for 13 years. At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we have been treating our patients with these injections since this FDA approval. All those years of use on top of clinical testing show that if they are administered by skilled and experienced medical professionals, these treatments produce reliably strong results for crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines.
Minimal Treatment and Recovery Time
There are many ways to reduce wrinkles, but every patient wants a balance between the results they’ll receive and the amount of time, discomfort, and effort it will take to get those results. One reason Botox® and Dysport® are so popular is that they produce great results remarkably easily. The treatment is quick, only taking a matter of minutes and a few quick injections. There is no need to take time off work to recover because most patients only have mild soreness and bruising for a few days at their injection site.
For most people who want to reduce wrinkles, the ideal result is to look younger without obvious signs that they “had work done” – they want to look like they are simply keeping a youthful look. That is what Botox® and Dysport® results typically offer. When administered by an experienced and skilled medical professional like the providers at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, these treatments give your skin a naturally smooth appearance.
Confidence Boost for Months
Wrinkles can wear away at a person’s self-esteem quickly. Not only may you dislike the way they look, but they can make you feel that your age is wearing on you and that you aren’t as strong or energized as you used to be. Botox® and Dysport® injections give you the gift of improved confidence with results that last for months so you can stop worrying about your wrinkles on a daily basis.
All of these reasons above are excellent motivations for getting Botox® or Dysport® injections.
