Botox® and Dysport™

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox and Dysport:

What is Botox? What is Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are the latest advancements in botulinum toxin therapy. It is used to safely, simply and effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet”. By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox and Dysport reduce wrinkles. Both are a remarkable treatment for wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.

How do they work?

Both prevent wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so that they don’t contract. Botox and Dysport block impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.

Are there any side effects? What is the downtime associated with the procedure?

After an injection, there may be some redness and swelling at the injection sites. There is no “downtime.”

How much does it cost? How do I decide which one is right for me?

All pricing is determined by an individual consultation between the physician and the patient. Many elements affect the final pricing including, the number of sites injected, package pricing and if Botox or Dysport is selected.
