Our friendly, talented staff at ZL MedAesthetics can help you understand key differences between BOTOX and Dysport and craft a comprehensive treatment plan to smooth your skin and take years off your appearance. We can help you on your journey to a younger, fresher appearance with the use of these two injectable products.
Over time, crow’s feet and frown lines become etched on your facial skin. These annoying lines distract from the beauty of your natural features and can give you an older, tired appearance. These lines and wrinkles can appear early in life, even the twenties and thirties, depending on the skin’s level of elasticity. While our skin quality is based on genetics, these products can help you improve on what nature gave you.
BOTOX is an injectable product, which can serve as a non-surgical alternative to procedures like a facelift. Though fillers have long been considered a “women’s” product, the number of men who are treated with fillers has quadrupled since 2000. Both men and women can benefit from the youthful effects of products like BOTOX in Tucson.
Perhaps one of the most well-known injectables, BOTOX in Tucson is the go-to for many doctors and patients all over the world. It is approved by the FDA for treatment of crow’s feet on the outer corners of the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and most recently lines across the forehead. Dysport is also approved to reduce frown lines and works similarly to BOTOX, but with a different formula.
Both injectables work by reducing muscle contractions in the treatment area, but each is appropriate for certain areas of the face. They are both proven to be effective and are administered in the same manner – tiny, carefully placed injections. BOTOX and Dysport treatments require maintenance treatments to preserve the result, typically about every three months.
The molecules in Dysport are smaller and the product is more diluted than what is found in BOTOX. The spread when injected into the skin makes it a superior product for certain facial areas.
As BOTOX is thicker, it won’t diffuse as much as Dysport, and the product stays near the injection site. This allows for precise treatment of smaller areas. The diffusion and dilution of each type of injectable can be advantageous depending on the size of the area that needs to be smoothed and rejuvenated, and the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without surgery. If you want to avoid undergoing a surgical procedure, or would like to prolong the results of a past surgical procedure, facial enhancement with a BOTOX can help you prolong the look of smooth, younger-looking skin. The injections are also relatively painless and do not require much aftercare. You can immediately return to work and other activities without any incisions or significant recovery time. ZL MedAesthetics is catering to the growing popularity of BOTOX in Tucson.
BOTOX is administered in the comfort of our boutique-like Tucson med spa. The number of injections will depend on the areas that need treatment. The strength of the muscle determines the amount of medication needed, and may vary from one appointment to the next.
Each treatment of BOTOX can be completed in 30 minutes or less, making it easy to fit into your day. Our medspa also has flexible hours to accommodate a busy schedule.
The reduced muscle activity starts immediately after receiving your injections and early results may be noticed as soon as two days with full results evident at two weeks. Over the week or so following your procedure, you will see a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, even when smiling or frowning.
Your smooth, younger-looking skin will remain for approximately three to four months before the muscles slowly being to move again. Maintenance injections every three to four months will preserve your smoother, more youthful look. Here are some of our results with real patients.
Our Tucson med spa focuses on non-surgical treatments for common signs of aging and for skin rejuvenation. ZL MedAesthetics provides a comfortable, luxurious experience.

BOTOX in Tucson has proven to be a highly versatile medication, and is used to treat a range of cosmetic issues and many uncomfortable or unsightly physical conditions. Some additional uses for BOTOX include:
BOTOX can help you minimize the look of chin dimples as well as the unsightly lines and wrinkles in the chin area. Some people have excessive motion in the muscle at the center of the chin structure. Carefully and accurately injected BOTOX can smooth the entire chin area through limiting muscle motion. For a patient who wants to smooth the appearance of a deeper chin dimple, a more extensive correction can be accomplished by combining BOTOX injections with a dermal filler to plump the area and create a smoother look.
Some people live with an uncomfortable condition in which they have excessive armpit sweat, called primary axillary hyperhidrosis. This unpleasant condition can be improved with BOTOX injections. The treatment has also been effective for treating excessive sweating of hands, feet, head and face, or beneath the breasts. The treatment reportedly produces a reduction in sweating between 82 and 87 percent – a dramatic improvement for patients suffering with this condition.
Have you noticed your face becoming more square-shaped and bigger as the years go by? No, these aren’t signs of facial bloating. The masseter muscles are a group of muscles found on the base of the cheeks and they help us chew and grind food. They are also the muscles that work when we clench our teeth.
Over time, due to excessive wear and tear, these muscles thicken and become lumpy, making our faces look bigger than they are. Surgical facial slimming procedures can cause a lot of problems for people who are ill-equipped to handle them. A great way to slim the face is by using minimally-invasive cosmetic injectables like BOTOX.
By injecting these cosmetic injectables, you can contour your face, returning it to the shape it was when you were younger. Laura Zimmerman at the ZL MedAesthetics is highly experienced in performing facial slimming procedures using BOTOX. Contact her for more information.
Neuromuscular modulators, like BOTOX and Dysport, prevent the neurotransmitters in the face from receiving and transmitting signals, thereby reducing the movement in the face. When injected with the BOTOX, the masseter muscles will start to relax, until they deflate and return to normal size. This will make your face look slimmer and more elegant, as time passes.
Not only will your face have a more even, rounded, and shapely appearance but your skin will also look tighter, younger, and smoother, making you look youthful and beautiful. The best advantage of this procedure is how the BOTOX will only reduce the swelling in the masseter muscles, without affecting the basic structure and shape of your face. Post-treatment, you get a wrinkle-free, contoured face that still remains chubby and shapely.
Skin tightening and facial augmentation are just two of the many benefits that neuromuscular modulators like BOTOX can provide. A key function of these injectable fillers is also facial sculpting.
As we age, the muscles in our neck and jaws become weak, resulting in loss of elasticity in the tissues and skin. The jaws may also become hollow, making our face appear brittle, thin, and weak. With the right treatment, you can regain the beauty and strength in your neck and jaws.
Sometimes, due to certain medical or personal reasons, you may not wish to go under the knife. Neuromuscular modulators like BOTOX prevent the necessity for surgical neck and jaw sculpting, by providing the same long-lasting benefits through minimally-invasive means.
When the muscles in the neck become loose, they result in our neck and jaw looking shapeless. BOTOX, when injected, will allow you to add volume and create a beautiful contour of your face.
This treatment is a cosmetic procedure which will help you enhance the appearance of your neck and jaws. It is important to speak to the doctor regarding the post-treatment results, to have a realistic expectation of the treatment.
She will analyze the dimensions of your face, jaw or neck and mark the areas to be treated. She will then use a topical numbing lotion to anesthetize the area being treated. Next, using the injectable, she will inject a pre-determined amount of BOTOX into the area. About 3-5 sittings may be required to complete the treatment, depending on various factors such as the extent of the swelling and your own expectations.
It is important to remember that the facial slimming or neck and jaw sculpting procedures are designed to contour your face and give it a beautiful, younger, natural looking shape. It is not designed to change the structure of your face or your appearance. It’s important that you discuss your expectations with the doctor before scheduling the procedure.
Post-treatment bruising, swelling, and tenderness are common and they’ll last a few days after the procedure. Given that this is a minimally-invasive procedure, recovery should take up to 7 days. You are advised not to exert your facial or neck muscles in any way and follow the post-treatment care charted to you from ZL.
The treatment will start showing results from the Day 3 mark, with your face appearing softer and more rounded as days pass. There will also be a significant reduction in the creases, dimples, and fine lines that were present on the face before the treatment.
