Botox & Dysport

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified biologic toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. We offer 2 different brands: Botox® and Dysport®.

When Botox is injected into a specific muscle, it weakens the muscle for improved relaxation and facial lines (which are caused by aging, sun damage, heredity, and gravity).

Why Botox or Dysport?

Both are FDA-approved to treat:

  • Glabella (frown lines between the eyebrows)
  • Muscle spasms
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes)
  • Blepharospasm (eye twitching)
  • Axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweat)

Off-label treatment include:

  • Lines around the mouth and eyes
  • Eyebrow drooping
  • Chin dimpling

Botox lasts between 3-6 months, so you will need maintenance treatments every few months. Our experts will discuss lifestyle factors and develop a maintenance plan for you. We may also recommend a combination therapy with other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your outcome.

There is no pre-care required.

For a full post-treatment plan, please see the “Botox & Dysport take home instructions” in the box to the right. A quick run-down of post-care includes:

  • Avoid touching, applying pressure, or massaging the treated area post-treatment
  • Don’t lie down or lean forward 4-6 hours post-treatment
  • Avoid exercising for 4-6 hours post-treatment

In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup lightly, and resume most of your activities immediately.

Improvement of lines is noticeable after 2-3 days, and the peak effect is reached in 7-14 days. Botox is not permanent, and will need maintenance treatments every 3-6 months.

For more information, please see the “Botox & Dysport consent form” in the box to the right. Our licensed skin care experts will work with you to minimize discomfort and/or side effects.

  • Bruising (Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications may increase the risk; discontinue 10 days prior to decrease bruising)
  • Minimal redness and swelling
  • Temporary eyelid drooping (ptosis)*

* This can be minimized by not touching/rubbing the site of injection and maintaining an upright position post-injection.

Most people are candidates for Botox and Dysport. Our clients use it for prevention and correction, starting in their mid-twenties and up.
