BOTOX® and Dysport®

Closeup of Woman Smiling

BOTOX and Disport are prescription injections used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

BOTOX and Dysport are prescription injections that cause temporary weakening or paralysis of targeted muscles. Cosmetically, they are used to treat facial wrinkles and furrows that are formed by daily contraction of facial muscles. Medically, they are can be used to treat neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, migraines, excessive sweating, and overactive bladder.

Common areas for cosmetic treatment are:

Frown Lines

Forehead Lines

Smile Lines – “Crow’s Feet”

Skin Bands on the Neck

BOTOX and Dysport are delivered by fine needle injection directly into the muscles that are causing facial wrinkles or furrows. Most patients require no anesthetic, but the skin can be numbed using topical agents before treatment. The onset of action requires 2-7 days, with most patients achieving full results by one week. Results typically last for 3-4 months. Patients can resume normal activity quickly, making it a perfect outpatient cosmetic procedure, with no down time or recovery. 

Side effects of neuromodulator treatments are usually mild and temporary. They can include bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. Rare side effects can include temporary drooping of any eyelid, infection, double vision, or spread of the medication to an unintended muscle group.
