FAQ

Botox and Dysport (Anti Aging and Anti Wrinkle)

• What is Botox Cosmetic? What is Dysport?

Botox Cosmetic and the recently FDA approved Dysport are the latest advancement in botulinum toxin therapy. They are used safely, simply and effectively to improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet.” By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox and Dysport reduce wrinkles. Both are remarkable treatments for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.

• How do they work?

Both prevent wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. Botox and Dysport block impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.

• Are there any side effects? What is the downtime associated with the procedure?

After an injection, there may be some redness and swelling at the injection sites. There is no “downtime”.

• How much does it cost? How do I decide which one is right for me?

All pricing is determined by an individual consultation between the physician and the patient. Many elements affect the final pricing including, the number of sites injected, package pricing and whether Botox or Dysport is selected.

Restalyne and Perlane

• What are Dermal Fillers?

The skin’s natural aging process in combination with sun damage and other factors manifest as changes in facial contours. Our skin loses some of its elasticity and begins to sag. Dermal fillers reverse this sagging by “plumping up” and adding volume to the treated areas. Among the most effectively treated areas are the nasolabial folds (those smiles lines or “parentheses” that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth), around the mouth/lips, and under the eyes.

• Is there any down time associated with dermal fillers?

Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, possible bruising, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. After a lip treatment, the lips may become swollen. This can persist for a few days. If the discomfort continues, please contact your physician. There is no limitation on activity following treatment. Due to the potential of swelling and bruising, it is recommended to schedule filler injections at least one week prior to any special occasion.
