There is a reason why Botox and Dysport (and Xeomin) injections are the number one cosmetic procedure done today to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They work! More than a million Botox and Dysport injections are safely given each year, the popularity of this treatment is unmistakable. Botox and Dysport are simple and effective injections with little downtime and recovery. Most patients return directly to work and see improvement in as little as a few days.

Typically you can expect your treatment to last 3-4 months. This will depend on the dosage used, the area treated, and your own individual metabolism.
We use the tiniest of needles and a very light touch. Discomfort is minimal but you may choose to have a topical numbing cream applied. Slight bruising is possible at the injection site and clears within 7-10 days.
You will begin to see improvement in 3-5 days, maximum effect is achieved 10-14 days after your treatment.
Botox and Dysport are in a class of injections that use botulinum, a “neuromodulator” that blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
Our goal is to decrease the severity of your lines and wrinkles. We want a natural result not an “overdone” look. Most people look refreshed and relaxed after the treatment has taken effect. If you have very deep “permanent” lines these will decrease but not completely disappear. We can discuss other treatments to improve permanent lines at your consultation.
Typically there are no side effects. Occasionally a small amount of redness or tiny bruise which will resolve quickly. There is a small amount of swelling where injection was administered and this disappears within 15-30 minutes after treatment. Rarely clients have a minor headache or achy feeling for 24 hours or less. You may go about your regular activity after treatment except facials, massage, and standing on your head…after treatment.
You will begin to see improvement in 3-5 days, maximum effect is achieved 10-14 days after your treatment. A follow up will be scheduled 10-14 days after your first treatment with us to ensure we are both happy with your results.
