Botulinum toxin injections like Botox and Dysport have become an extremely popular option for men and women who want to ward off the early signs of aging. By relaxing the underlying facial muscles and softening wrinkle-causing expressions, Botox and Dysport are able to slow the aging process and restore a naturally youthful appearance.

Every smile, frown, and every expression in between eventually adds up to the formation of dynamic lines and wrinkles. Crow’s feet and frown lines are just two of the most common problems men and women have with their appearance due to these repeated muscle contractions.
Botox and Dysport are specially formulated to help put an end to these signs of aging without the need for surgery—both are offered professionally at our cosmetic surgery practice in San Antonio. Dr. Hernandez works with her injectables patients to create a fully personalized treatment plan. Her experienced and artistic approach to injectable botulinum toxin treatments allows her to provide patients with the younger look they want without appearing overdone or unnatural.
Based on your specific goals and the condition of your skin, Dr. Hernandez will help to determine whether Botox or Dysport is the right treatment for you. While each injectable uses the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin, there are some unique differences between them that may make you better suited for one rather than the other. A one-on-one consultation with Dr. Hernandez will help to determine which of these injectable treatments is best for your situation.
When carefully injected into the underlying facial muscles, Botox and Dysport work to reduce contractions that cause the formation of lines and wrinkles. Over time, you will notice existing signs of aging begin to fade and the treatment will help to prevent new ones from forming.
Patients are typically able to resume normal activity immediately after their injectable treatment. Some minor soreness or bruising may occur, but should quickly fade over the next day or two. As the botulinum toxin takes effect, you will notice a gradual softening of the treated signs of aging. Most begin noticing results within the first week after treatment and see continued improvement up to a few weeks. Botox and Dysport have been known to provide men and women with results lasting three to nine months. Once the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear, Dr. Hernandez can perform maintenance treatments to help you feel confident and happy with your look throughout life.
