What are Botox®/Dysport®?
Botox® and Dysport® are the exact same molecule produced by different manufacturers. Botulinum Toxin Type A is a bacterial-derived protein which is purified to ultra-tiny doses (picograms) administered with a 100% safety profile and few side effects in trained hands.
By relaxing the targeted muscles Botox® treatments will correct:
|• Frown lines (the elevens)
• Crow’s feet
|• Forehead lines
• Neck bands
Botox® and Dysport® will not correct volume loss or nasolabial lines. That is best done with fillers.
How is it performed?
After applying topical numbing cream for 10 minutes, Botox® or Dysport® is administered by gentle injection directly into the facial muscles, with a thin tiny needle. The severity of the wrinkles and their location will determine the amount needed to achieve a natural look. Patients experience minimal to no bruising or discomfort, and the effects can last up to 4 months. In the first couple of days lines begin to soften, and full results are seen within 2 weeks.
We offer nitrous oxide laughing gas for those patients who are more sensitive or anxious. Ask for sedation Botox.
