You wear makeup, use moisturizer and protect yourself from the sun, right? You invest in expensive skincare and makeup products to look and feel your best. Botox and Dysport treatments are another way to ensure that you look your best without going under the knife for a surgical procedure like a facelift.
The biostation is excited to announce that we now offer Botox and Dysport as part of our new aesthetic treatments, in addition to our popular total wellness services.
Preventative Anti-Aging Treatment
Many people think of Botox treatment as something that’s only fit for Hollywood celebrities or plastic surgery addicts. Others may think that it’s not something that would really benefit them because they’re either too young or too old.
The fact is that Botox is one of the best anti-aging treatments available for people of any age. Whether you’re looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines around your eyes, deep creases in your forehead or simply a little bit of sagging around the mouth, it is an excellent preventative aging option for many men and women.
Why Choose Botox?
Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the United States because it is quick and effective. Best of all, there’s no downtime after receiving treatment, and many people even get it done in the middle of a work day or on their lunch break.
Treatment is also so common because the procedure is safe and minimally invasive. People often expect a series of very painful injections and are then surprised when they barely notice more than a pinch.
Fight Frown Lines with Dysport and Botox
Most people would like to see fewer wrinkles on their faces, but nobody wants that “frozen face” look as a trade-off. Dysport is a prescription injection for adults who desire less wrinkles and a natural look. Like Botox, Dysport can improve and smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes without inhibiting your ability to express your feelings as untreated muscles still work normally. This means it’s just the wrinkles that disappear, not your expressions.
Botox vs Dysport
Dysport and Botox both work by reducing specific muscle activity. As wrinkles develop with repetitive movements and muscle contractions of the face, they can even be seen in young adults. A single injection of Dysport or Botox into five points above and between the eyebrows temporarily prevents the muscle contractions that cause frown lines. Meanwhile, the rest of your facial muscles move as they did before and just the frown lines are gone.
At the biostation, Dr. Lacayo will work with each patient individually to determine which product would be most helpful in achieving the desired results. We offer both to all patients to provide them with a truly individualized experience.
Please note that the number of units required for Dysport will be different than the number of units required for Botox. The ratio is typically 2.5 to 3 units of Dysport to 1 unit of Botox. Pricing of Dysport can seem less expensive, but note that more units must be purchased for use. Choosing which product to use depends on the patient’s preference and the doctor’s recommendation.
When you see a doctor or clinic offering Botox or Dysport injections for about what you would spend on lunch, you really should know that something is not quite right there. In most cases, practitioners that offer these incredibly inexpensive treatments are using diluted formulas that won’t be as effective for the patient.
For example, if a doctor dilutes your Botox treatment with 8mL of saline, you’ll only get 1.25 units of Botox per 0.1mL injected. If you had been given the proper amount without dilution, you would have received 4 units per 0.1mL injected.
At the biostation, we use both Botox and Dysport to provide our patients the best individual outcomes and prolong the effects of both treatments.
We charge by the unit for Botox, so you only pay for the exact number of units you receive. We never dilute our Botox and follow the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) guidelines on “reconstitution,” so you are assured of the efficacy of the product. Dr. Lacayo will discuss with you which areas on your face should receive injections to best meet your concerns, and he will tell you how many units you will need to attain your desired result.
At our medical practice, unlike others, our highly successful, full-time aesthetic department features Medical Doctors and Nurse Practitioners offering the latest in cutting-edge treatments. In addition to Botox and Dysport, we proudly offer services including Kybella, CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing and PRP facials, along with many others. We work individually with each of our patients to achieve the NATURAL look they desire.
Up Front Pricing
Along with diluted treatments, many doctors and clinics sell Botox and Dysport treatments only in groups of sessions or in quantities that you may not need. When you come to the biostation, you can be confident you will get the right treatment for you and not have to worry about purchasing a discount or diluted package or scheduling treatments every two months for the next five years.
At the biostation, you pay only for the exact number of units you receive at the time of treatment. It seems so simple, but many doctors don’t use an open, up-front pricing structure.
How many units will I need?
Many people have questions about going in for a Botox consultation because they don’t know exactly what they need. They may worry that if they walk in and see the doctor without a specific plan or target area they’ll end up being charged a fortune for treatments they don’t need.
When you come to the biostation, one of our aesthetics experts will sit with you to answer any questions you may have, discuss your particular problem areas and the results you are looking for in detail. We will make a recommendation to you about how many units you’ll need of a particular product. You’ll only pay for the exact number of undiluted units that will give you your desired results.
