Botox Cosmetic and Dysport

Women and men all over the world have started to learn about the great results of Botox and Dyport.  They are natural chemicals that are used to relax muscles of the face to help erase and soften wrinkles and signs of aging.  We most commonly use Botox/Dysport in the muscles between the eyes (glabella), forehead, around the outer eyes (crows feet).  In the lower face, these products can be used to soften vertical lip lines and even lines in the neck.  These treatments are performed in our medspa under the supervision of our nurses and board certified cosmetic surgeons.  The results will remind you why Botox is so popular!

How long does it last?

Is treatment with Botox or Dysport painful?

Most patients are in and out of the office without any downtime.  We typically provide ice packets as well as a homeopathic medicine that can help minimize bruising and swelling.  A small group of  first time patients may notice a mild headache the first evening after the treatment.
