Botox & Dysport
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX and Dysport work beneath the skin’s surface and target the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours with the maximum effect visible at 2-4 weeks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does BOTOX or Dysport work?
Botox and Dysport targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Our provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX or Dyport to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
When will I see results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
BOTOX® or Dysport will deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
