Botox and Dysport

Neurotoxins: Botox and Dysport

Known as “relaxers”, these treatments relax the muscles that result in wrinkles. Over time our repeated facial expressions cause micro-trauma to skin that results in etched in rhytids, the fancy name for wrinkles. By temporarily stopping the movement that creates these wrinkles, the skin has a smooth, soft appearance. You don’t have to look “frozen” from these treatments. You will still be able to make your desired facial expressions and we take pride in our natural results that meet your goals.

There are many areas that can be improved with relaxers:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • “11’s” – vertical lines between the brows
  • Crow’s feet – lines around the eyes
  • Under eye lines
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Bunny lines – horizontal lines on the nose
  • Drooping nose tip
  • TMJ/Bruxism – clenching and grinding teeth
  • Pucker lines around the lips
  • Marionette lines – turns up mouth corners and improves pre-jowels
  • Gummy smile
  • Orange peel chin – decrease dimples to chin
  • Ball chin
  • Platysmal bands – tightens neck and decrease neck bands
  • Migraines/Headaches
  • Hyperhidrosis – reduce sweating in armpits, palms, and soles of feet

What to expect:

The areas to be treated with be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Small amounts of Botox or Dysport will be injected into the muscle. There is minimal discomfort, so numbing is generally not needed. You may experience redness at the injection site that typically disappears within an hour. Results may be seen as early as in 3-5 days, with the full effect in 2 weeks. Appointment time is approximately 30 minutes.
