Botox® and Dysport® Therapy
OnabotulinumtoxinA (Botox®) and AbobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport®) have been used safely and effectively for over 20 years to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe and effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for botulinum injections include horizontal forehead furrows or vertical "frown-lines" between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" around the eyes.

The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. Typically a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of Botox® / Dysport® is injected into the area of the wrinkle using a very small needle, similar to those used by diabetics. The medicine works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is a physical relaxation the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The entire procedure takes about 10-15 minutes. The effects of an Botox® / Dysport® treatment will last approximately three to four months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.
