How Dynamic Wrinkles Appear

Dynamic wrinkles appear as a result of repeated facial expressions over time. As we smile, frown, or raise our eyebrows, the underlying muscles contract and cause the skin to fold. Over time, these folds can become etched into the skin, leading to the development of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are often found in areas such as the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows, making us look older or more tired than we feel.

What Are BOTOX, Dysport, and DAXXIFY?

BOTOX, Dysport, and DAXXIFY are popular cosmetic treatments used to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. They are derived from botulinum toxin type A and work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is a brand name of the medication onabotulinumtoxinA. Dysport is the brand name for abobotulinumtoxinA, and DAXXIFY is the brand name for an exclusive formulation with an innovative peptide stabilizer, free from any human or animal byproducts. These injectables are highly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance to the face.

How BOTOX, Dysport, and DAXXIFY Work

Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to convey expressions. BOTOX, Dysport, and DAXXIFY are neuromodulators that temporarily block nerve signals to the targeted muscles, relaxing or paralyzing specific muscle groups. When applied to targeted facial muscles, these injectables  reduce their ability to contract, thus smoothing away the associated facial wrinkles and creases. The results appear gradually over 3 to 7 days and last for up to 8 months, depending on the brand of injectable used.

  • Safe and FDA-approved

The Treatment Details

A treatment session typically takes 15 to 30 minutes. During the session, Dr. Braunstein will carefully analyze your facial skin and discuss your goals to curate a personalized treatment plan, which involves selecting the appropriate units of the neurotoxin to be used and marking the targeted treatment areas. Dr. Braunstein will then use a fine needle to inject small amounts of the product into the targeted muscles. The injections are painless and well-tolerated, with some patients reporting a mild pinching sensation.

Recovery & Aftercare

After your treatment of Dysport, DAXXIFY, or BOTOX in Morristown, there is no downtime required, and most people can return to normal activities immediately. However, please avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for the first 24 hours, as this can cause the product to migrate to other areas. You may experience mild redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these should resolve within a few hours. You can resume your normal activities immediately, but please avoid strenuous physical activities for a day or two.
