What Are Botox® and Dysport™?

Botox® and Dysport™ are popular botulinum toxin-based injectable treatments designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of unwanted forehead lines, crow’s feet and bothersome wrinkles found throughout the face. Patients can achieve dramatic, long-lasting results with a simple in-office visit and no downtime.

How Does It Work?

Both Botox® and Dysport™ use powerful neurotoxins to temporarily weaken tight muscles that can contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. The FDA-approved treatments also help prevent new lines from forming that are typically caused by repetitive expressions.

Am I A Good Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for Botox Cosmetic®/Dysport™ if you’d like to address dynamic wrinkles on the forehead or face but aren’t quite ready for more invasive surgical procedures. Treatments can help you naturally look years younger for a big event.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Treatments are quick and easy. Your specialist can complete your age-reduction procedure in-office within just a few short minutes. Many patients opt to have their Botox Cosmetic®/Dysport™ session during a lunch break and return to work immediately.

What Results Will I See?*

You can expect to see results from your Botox® treatment in just 3-5 days with optimal results around 7-10 days. Dysport™ may show up sooner (1-2 days) but doesn’t last quite as long. Results from either procedure will gradually begin to fade anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is no downtime associated with either treatment. You’re free to go about your regular routine directly after your appointment. Some slight redness, swelling, or bruising may occur which should dissipate within 3-hours to 3-days.
