BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Botox Cosmetic, comprised of Botulinum Toxin, temporarily relaxes facial muscles, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Injected directly into the targeted area, Botox eases the muscle tension that causes dynamic wrinkles to appear. In just one session, lines along the forehead and around the eyes can be safely treated, restoring a youthful appearance.
Also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, or obobotulinumtoxin, Dysport is injected with a small needle, blocking nerve impulses to the targeted muscle. Dysport is used to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Dysport can efficiently improve the appearance of wrinkles on the upper face, as well as soften lines around the mouth and contour to the features.
Botox and Dysport will provide excellent wrinkle-reducing results, but can be combined with other treatments for best results. They are both safe for all skin types and ethnicities, but you will need a consultation with one of our nurse practioners.
