BOTOX® injection is an in-office procedure that involves tiny injections into precise locations of facial muscles. BOTOX® cosmetic injections are approved by the FDA for temporary improvement of smile lines around the eyes, forehead creases, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Improvement is noted in about 3 to 4 days with peak effect at 2 to 3 weeks. Treatment can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on the area treated and the depth of the skin lines. It is important that a trained medical professional perform this procedure to obtain the best possible result and minimize the risk of complications.
Dysport® is a form of botulinum toxin type A, similar to BOTOX®, which is also formulated for cosmetic use. BOTOX® and Dysport® give similar results, however, some individuals prefer one over the other. BOTOX® is considered more precise which is desirable in certain areas. Dysport® may spread more giving a softer correction.
Areas that can be treated with BOTOX® or Dysport® include:
:: forehead creases
:: frown lines between the eyebrows (“the 11’s”)
:: the eyebrows (can be subtly lifted or shaped)
:: smile lines around the eyes (“Crow’s feet”)
:: “bunny lines” on the sides of the nose
:: vertical lip lines (can be softened)
:: a “gummy” smile
:: dimpling in the chin
All BOTOX® and Dysport® injections are performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Therese-Anne LeVan.
