Botox® and Dysport Cosmetic Treatments

Botox® Cosmetic Services By Arcadia Wellness Center

We offer both Botox and Dysport for neuromodulator treatments for wrinkle reduction and improvement in skin contour. Our cosmetic nurse injectors practice advanced medical techniques that are virtually painless while delivering superior results at our clinic in Arcadia Neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona.

Botox®

Botox® cosmetic services are a simple, nonsurgical, treatment used to decrease wrinkles and lift and smooth muscles. Botox releases contractions causing wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscle. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Relatively pain free, this treatment can reduce and improve wrinkles and can last up to 6 months.

Dysport

Dysport, like Botox, is an injectable neuromodulator used to relax facial muscles. Dysport was approved for cosmetic use in the United States in 2011. Outside the U.S., it has been a popular neuromodulator of choice since 2001. Both Botox and Dysport have the same active ingredient, botulinum A. In comparison to Botox, Dysport injections may have an early onset and last slightly longer than Botox due to their smaller protein load and less antibody formation. Both products are extremely effective for the treatment of frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, crows feet, bunny lines, periorbital lip lines, pebbled chin, a gummy smile and more. Our expert cosmetic nurses will customize a treatment for your specific skin type and needs.

Botox Hyperhidrosis

Don’t Sweat Botox®!

How Botox® in Arizona can Treat Excessive Perspiration.

Do you have to change your shirt during the day because of excessive sweating? Do you feel self-conscious because of stained armpits or sweaty palms?

These are some of the warning signs that you may have Hyperhidrosis:

  • You change your clothes several times a day.
  • You carry extra deodorants, towels, or clothes to help hide your underarm sweating.
  • You have tried “extra strength” deodorants, medications, or alternative treatments to cut down your perspiration.
  • You spend a portion of your day dealing or thinking about severe underarm sweating?
  • You consider your underarm sweating barely tolerable and it frequently interferes with your daily activities.
  • You consider your underarm sweating intolerable and it always interferes with your daily activities.

A common treatment for severe underarm sweating is Botox®. The prescribing information for Botox® states that treatments can last up to 200 days. BOTOX® controls the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines and deodorants aren’t effective. It works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When your sweat glands don’t receive their normal chemical signals, the sweating ceases.

BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily stop excessive sweat production in treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere in the body unless that area is treated. Patients do not need to worry about sweat backing up in their body or causing other problems. The treated sweat glands, quite simply, are “turned off” by the BOTOX® injections do not produce sweat so there is no issue.

When will I know if I need another treatment?

When Botox® reacts with the sweat glands it has a dramatic impact on perspiration. These effects will last anywhere from a few months up to a year or more! You will know when the time is right for another treatment. Our clinical staff will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with BOTOX® treatment for sweating.

FAQs

A: Botox is actually made out of the same neurotoxin that causes botulism; Clostridium botulinum type A. As long as it is used in minuscule doses it is harmless.

The way that the toxin works is that it blocks communication between the nerves and the muscles in the face. When the communication is blocked, it causes a temporary paralysis that relaxes dynamic wrinkles that are caused by tense muscles. 

Skilled professionals can strategically place Botox injections in areas of the face that cause wrinkles by studying the contour of the patient’s skin. A tiny amount of Botox in a precise location can do wonders for the entire facial area.

A: Every patient that receives a Botox treatment can have results that differ from the next person. In the typical situation, the first stages of the results will appear within the first 24 hours. However, not everybody sees results so quickly.

 Many people will see changes in the way their skin looks within the first few days, however, it can take up to two weeks before the full results are visible.

Sometimes it takes a while for Botox to produce results because it has to reach the muscle on a cellular level in order to block the neurotransmitters. Although it may seem like it is taking forever, millions of people have gotten remarkable results by getting Botox treatments.

A: The cost of a Botox treatment will depend on the needs of the patient, and where the treatment is performed.

In a typical setting, Botox is measured and sold in units. A unit of Botox can cost anywhere between $10 and $15. A typical treatment can consist of an average of between 30 and 40 units.

A: The term “Botox” is short for Botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin type A is a neurotoxin that blocks communication between nerves and muscles. The Botox procedure essentially paralyzes the muscles in the face in order to prevent them from contracting.

A skilled Botox injector will be able to locate and target problem areas in the face so that they can administer the treatment in a way that is most beneficial for the patient. A tiny injection in the right spot will help to relax the muscles that are causing wrinkles. The injection, in turn, will cause the area that has been treated to smooth out and look amazing.

A: Some patients that have Botox treatments achieve results that last up three to four months, while others last up to six months

On average, Botox treatment results last between 3 and 4 months. However, many patients find that their initial treatment only lasts between 2 and 3 months, but the treatments that follow last longer as they continue to get continual treatments over time.
