Are you unhappy with wrinkles that are creating laugh and lip lines, frown lines, forehead lines or crow’s feet on your face? Do you want to do something about it that does not require surgery? You may be a good candidate for Botox® or Dysport®, which can temporarily erase these common signs of aging.

WHAT ARE BOTULINUM TOXINS?
Botulinum toxins are proteins that block nerve activity in the muscles, resulting in a temporary relaxation of the muscle to reduce and improve the appearance of wrinkles. Dysport, just like Botox, is a botulinum toxin. It is administered by injection and is used to help smooth crow’s feet or severe frown lines – such as the infamous “11s” between the eyebrows – for both men and women.
CHOOSING BOTOX, DYSPORT OR XEOMIN
It is not the fountain of youth, but Botox and Dysport injections come pretty close. If you are looking for a more youthful appearance and want to wave goodbye to those frown lines, crow’s feet and other wrinkles, join the list of many people who get Botox to improve their appearance. Good candidates are typically those individuals who might have forehead creases, a furrowed brow, crow’s feet, laugh lines, bunny lines or fine wrinkles around the mouth. Botox also works well for neck bands.
So which do you choose, Botox or Dysport? Studies in Europe have shown that Dysport lasts just as long as Botox. In terms of treatment area, Botox is a great fix for smaller sections of wrinkled skin, while Dysport is said to be able to cover wider sections. If you’re not sure which botulinum toxin is right for you, Lori Lankford and Paige Hastings are here to help you decide so you can achieve your desired results.

BOTOX INJECTION PROCEDURE
Dr. Wendel, Lori Lankford or Paige Hastings will perform Botox and Dysport injections at our Green Hills office in Nashville. Once we have identified the areas of concern, our provider will perform a series of injections into the area, using a fine needle. The toxin inserted through the skin will begin to relax the contraction of your muscles, by blocking nerve impulses. Since the muscles can no longer contract, they are relaxed and softened. After a few days as the wrinkles fade, you may notice a more youthful appearance to your skin. Results usually last for about 3 months.
