Botox®/Dysport®

Botox®/Dysport® is a unique skin care treatment that corrects the underlying facial muscles. Other non-surgical treatments, such as chemical/laser peels, collagen injections, and a mini Face Lifts, only address the skin's surface. Botox®/Dysport®, on the other hand, affects dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements. The most common of these are those "expression lines" on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows. These wrinkles occur as the facial muscles contract when we squint, laugh, smile, or frown.

PROCEDURE

  • First, a small amount of Botox®/Dysport is injected into the facial muscles. By relaxing the muscles, the ability to frown or squint is decreased, preventing the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, and crow's feet.
  • Botox®/Dysport only affects the muscle's ability to move, not their ability to feel. While the skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, normal facial expressions are unaffected. No sedation or local anesthetic is required.

RECOVERY

The treatment will take effect in approximately four to five days. Patients are able to resume their regular daily activities immediately after treatment

RESULTS

Patients achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance with Botox®. The treatment lasts for three to five months and can be repeated multiple times. Longer lasting results may occur with repeated injections. It usually takes two or three injections per year to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance that is desired. A welcome side effect for many patients is the disappearance of tension headaches. It is also the ideal procedure for patients interested in risk-free options other than facial plastic surgery.
