Cost: Total units to be determined following a professional consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple physician administered treatment which involves the injection of purified protein into specific areas to temporarily smooth lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movements.
Our Medical Professional evaluates patterns of facial expressions and looks for moderate to severe facial lines caused by the action of these muscles. The location, size and action of the muscles that create these “wrinkles” will vary among different individuals. Our Medical Professional will mark these locations and administer several small injections of Botox Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause these wrinkles. The objective is to create a youthful and more relaxed appearance and NOT a “MASK” or “expressionless” look.
Each area requires a different number of units of Botox as determined by our Medical Professional.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a medically derived subunit of “botulinum” toxin called “abobotuliunum” toxin. This acts as a “chemodenervation” agent, which means that it weakens the muscles into which it is placed. The precise placement of Dysport into specific areas of the face will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport ?
Since both Dysport and Botox treat dynamic wrinkles through “chemodenervation” their results are very similar. However, there are potential benefits to both products. Experienced with both Botox and Dysport, our doctor will help you select which product will be best for you.
Areas that can be treated with BOTOX/DYSPORT include:
- Glabella/frown lines (area between the brows)
