Dysport® and Botox®
Botox® and Dysport® treatments are a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting Botox® and Dysport® into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.

Before Botox® and Dysport®
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to the procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated are examined and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.
BOTOX® and Dysport® injections are performed without anesthesia because they are virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the results. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic results. Botox® and Dysport® are only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging. Botox® and Dysport® can also be used to treat headaches as well and many patients report less headaches after receiving injections of Botox® and Dysport®.
After the procedure, some patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed after injection although exercise is not recommended immediately following the procedure. Possible side effects are uncommon, but can include mild swelling and bruising. Botox® and Dysport® are reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all possible risks at the time of your consultation.
