No matter how well we take care of our skin, the signs of ageing eventually affect everyone. While there is no Fountain of Youth, there are very effective anti-ageing treatments that can be used to turn back the clock on your appearance! If you are in the Hamilton, Ontario area and have been searching for a dermatologist near you who will help you achieve radiant, youthful skin, the team at drs skincare is here to help. We offer a comprehensive array of anti-ageing skin solutions, including Botox and Dysport injections, and work with patients to create a customized treatment plan that addresses their unique aesthetic concerns.
The science behind Botox and Dysport injections
Every time we make a facial expression, it causes our skin to wrinkle and fold in certain locations. Raising your eyebrows creates vertical lines on the forehead, smiling creates wrinkles at the creases of the eyes and mouth, and furrowing your eyebrows creates vertical lines between the eyes. Botox and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators that harness the power of Botulinum toxin A, which works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. This, in turn, prevents the targeted facial muscles from contracting and forming wrinkles and folds, allowing the skin to relax and become smooth. It takes a few days after the injections for results to become noticeable, and they will continue to improve over the course of about two weeks.

Areas that Botox and Dysport can be used
Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved but have slightly different formulations that make each one better suited for specific situations.
- Dysport is a more diluted product and spreads out more rapidly, making it a great option for lines and wrinkles on the forehead because of the larger surface area.
- Botox is more concentrated and is excellent at targeting wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines and can also be used on the forehead.

Botox and Dysport are just two of the many anti-ageing skincare treatments available at drs skincare. If you are ready to reveal your youngest, healthiest skin, call our Hamilton, ON office today at (905) 524-1712 or request your appointment online.
