Wrinkles and fine lines are likely to appear even if you have been taking good care of your skin. Overtime due to the natural aging process, collagen is reduced leading to the development of Crow’s feet, creases , fine lines and wrinkles. Although it is natural for these wrinkles to appear as we age, these skin changes can be improved and even delayed with the use of Botox Cosmetic or Dysport.
Botox and Dysport are minimally invasive injectable treatments that reduce and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fine lines and wrinkles appear due to the repeated contraction of facial muscles that we use to frown, squint, and smile. Because of this repeated muscle action along with collagen breakdown, skin eventually develops visible lines and wrinkles. Botox and Dysport work by temporarily reducing this muscle activity, which gives a smoother younger look to your features.

Q. What should I expect with a Botox/Dysport Treatment at Drift Medi-Spa?
A. Before treatment, you will receive a complimentary consultation with our Nurse Practitioner who will address your concerns and create a customized treatment plan. If you decide to have treatment completed our Nurse Practitioner will carefully mark and inject specific points on your face. Most people will only feel a quick pinch from the injection. Following treatment some individuals may experience some localized swelling and/or redness that should last no longer than a few hours.
Q. How soon should I see results?
A. While each person’s physiology is unique, you should see results start to appear in 3-5 days. The effects of the product should be in full effect 10-14 days after treatment. As such we ask clients to wait for the full 14 days to pass in order to see the full result.
Q. How long will a Botox or Dysport treatment last?
A. Results from the product will typically last for about 3-4 months. With repeated use of Botox or Dysport you may be able to increase the duration of treatment to 4-6 months as your muscles begin to relax naturally. Often less Botox is required for repeat treatments to achieve the same effect. Many individuals make Botox/Dysport part of their regular beauty regime.
Q. Will I have a fake, frozen look following treatment?
A. No not at all. The goal of treatment is to improve wrinkles while maintaining your natural beauty. Most people simply want to look natural, relaxed, and refreshed.
