Botox Cosmetic and Dysport

Botox Cosmetic and Dysport

Has aging, stress, lifestyle choices, diet, or sun exposure resulted in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines? Fine lines, wrinkles, facial folds, and furrows can affect one's appearance and trigger self-consciousness and frustration. 

If you are looking for ways to reduce or eliminate the appearance of age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles, Gold Coast MedSpa offers BOTOX and Dysport procedures that address these problems and more. 
Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins made from a purified protein and work by relaxing overactive muscles, thus smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet. 


One of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments, Botox or botulinum toxin A treatment, works by temporarily obstructing muscular nerve signals and weakening the facial muscles to minimize the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles. Botox treatments are mostly performed on areas between eyebrows, the forehead, around the eyes, upper lip, chin, and neck.

Who Are The Candidates For Botox Treatment?

Botox treatment can help people with the following condition to address their concerns and have a rejuvenated look:  
  • Crow's feet
  • Frown lines between the eyes
  • Wrinkles across the forehead
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Neck Bands
  • Thickened jaw muscle 
  • Excessive sweating of underarms, palms, feet

How Does Botox Work?

Our everyday facial expressions involve the contraction of our facial muscles. And repeated contractions can lead to permanent fine lines and wrinkles in our skin over time. Botox temporarily paralyzes these muscles, smooths existing wrinkles, and prevents future ones. The results of Botox treatment can last for up to five months.


An alternative to BOTOX treatment, Dysport is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. Like BOTOX, Dysport is also injected into muscles of the targeted facial areas to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Both Dysport and BOTOX are very similar, but Dysport has more miniature proteins in its formula, thus helping it to disperse further around the area where it is injected. This property makes Dysport an ideal treatment for areas like the forehead as the area can be treated with less number of injections required. 

How Does Dysport Work?

Dysport injections also work by intercepting signals from the nerves to the wrinkle-generating muscles by temporarily reducing muscle activity, thus softening dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. The anti-aging results of Dysport can last for three to six months. 

What Can Dysport Treat?

Dysport injections also treat the same areas and concerns as BOTOX. Dysport temporarily improves the following conditions:
  • The appearance of moderate to severe frown lines 
  • Wrinkles on the forehead
  • Crow's feet
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Fine lines on jaw, chin, and neck
  • Excessive sweating
