Our Team of Dermatologists, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners are skilled in the administration of injections utilizing botulinum toxin type A to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Additional information on these treatments is listed below.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® Cosmetic may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
What is Dysport®? Prescription Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
Dysport® is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use.*
*In clinical trials, the efficacy of Dysport® was studied in a total of 376 patients and was demonstrated with up to 4 repeated treatments. The safety of Dysport® has been studied in up to 12 repeated treatments.
How does Dysport® work? With just 1 injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines.
Injection sites for Dysport®
The untreated facial muscles still contract normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
You should not be treated with Dysport® more frequently than every 90 days.
