INFORMATION ON DYSPORT/BOTOX
Dysport, which is used for botox injections and jaw reduction mostly is a specialized technique that seeks to reduce the width of the jawline. In some patients, the the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle, is enlarged creating extra facial width. Dysport weakens this muscle leading to an overall reduction in the size of this muscle.
Dysport can create a natural, subtle improvement to the jaw without any downtime or potential complications. Dysport is actually another brand of botox that promises faster and more effective results. The effects of Dysport may kick in quicker than the effects of Botox. Some research shows that it takes Botox three to five days to work, while Dysport takes effect within one to two days. It may also last longer than Botox injections and is now frequently used by patients who in the past relied on BOTOX.
Given that my face is already considered small, I still find my jaw looking pretty huge from the side and it is not ideal for a petite frame like mine. Many of you should already be aware of the botox brand named BOTOX by Allergan. Both Dysport and BOTOX are injectable forms of Botulinum Toxin Type A. In less than a week, I have felt my muscles weakening and also felt soreness in my jaw during mealtime. This is perfectly normal and is due to the effects of Dysport working hard.
I like that Dr Elias Tam is very gentle and often reassured me that the pain will be very minimal which yes indeed it is. I would rate the pain level to be 3/10 if you are rather afraid of needles. For me, I am relatively unafraid of needles so it felt like a tiny fast prick on my face. It felt like nothing at all. There was minimal blood as well but that I couldn’t see so for those who are afraid of blood do not worry, you will not see it.
Rest assure that you are in safe hands at EHA Clinic. They have the latest equipment in house and are fully equipped with a range of makeup for you to put your makeup on after the treatment. It is very important to seek from a true professional when experiencing such aesthetic treatments so you don’t meet with any rare complications.
DURATION OF THE PROCESS
It took about an hour including consultation and waiting for the numbing cream to take effect.
1. Consultation about 2-10 minutes depending on your questions
2. Proceed to room and do a scan/take pictures
3. Nurse will clean the face area with water and cleansing foam
4. Nurse will numb the areas that are required
5. Wait for numbing cream to take effect about 25 minutes depending on the doctor
Hope this helps and thank you for reading! Do contact them if you would like to know the price and also do not hesitate to head down for a consultation if you are unsure! It is very important to go down for consultations before committing to any treatment. Dr Elias Tam would be more than happy to aid in your queries like he did for me!
As you can see from the BEFORE/AFTER pictures, you will see my jawline was not as smooth before. It is now smoother as seen from the AFTER photo.
