BOTOX® Cosmetic is a treatment that improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines on your forehead, between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. Whether using Botox as a preventative method, slowing down the process of facial lines, or helping smooth out the lines that are currently present, Botox is widely known and approved in 78 different countries and remains the #1 selling product of it's kind in the world.
How does Botox® work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
When will I see results from Botox®?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
How long does a treatment of Botox® take?
Before beginning your treatment we will discuss your goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
Will Botox® make me look like I've had work done?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. We prefer to consult with all of our patients before administrating a treatment. This will allow us to determine what goals you have in place for Botox®, providing you with the best treatment possible.
Does Botox® hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. If you are truly concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

DYSPORT® injections are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed. The popularity of DYSPORT® is due to their ease of use and supreme effectiveness in treating common types of wrinkles. These injections can reduce wrinkles of the brow (frown lines), eyes (crow’s feet), lips and neck. With a series of quick injections, you can see dramatic reductions in these types of wrinkles can be achieved.
When will I see results from a Dysport treatment?
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 2-3 days.
How long does Dysport last?
One treatment of Dysport can last for up to 4 months,† so the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport may be comparable to the first use.
Is Dysport different from Botox?
Dysport® and Botox are both made from botulinum toxin type A. All botulinum toxins have the same mechanism of action: blocking the release of acetylcholine (ACh) and preventing the muscles from contracting to maintain the aesthetic effect. However, the dose of Dysport is not the same as the dose of any other botulinum toxin product and cannot be compared to the dosage of any other botulinum toxin product that you may have previously used.
What are some side effects of Dysport?
The most common side effects are nose and throat irritation, headache, injection site pain, injection site skin reaction, upper respiratory tract infection, eyelid swelling, eyelid drooping, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
Do you have a double chin (also known as “submental fullness”) and do you find it cosmetically unappealing? Even when we lose weight and exercise, some of us retain fat under our chin, giving the face a fuller appearance. KYBELLA™ is the first and only non-surgical treatment that can actually get rid of a double chin. With KYBELLA we can resculpt the face with only a 30 minute treatment.
Schedule a consultation in our office to discuss if KYBELLA™ is an option for you, as not all people can use KYBELLA™.
What is Submental Fullness?
Until now, people had to have surgical intervention to remove a double chin. It is a common occurrence, but because of the previous difficulty in removing it, most people never considered it an option. Submental fullness contributes to an overweight look, and can age a face dramatically. Improving only this ascetic can change a person’s confidence.
How Does KYBELLA™ Work?
KYBELLA™ is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body. We inject it into the chin area to aid in breaking down fat. When they are destroyed, the fat cells can no longer function, and begin to shrink. There is usually no retreatment with KYBELLA™once the optimal number of sessions has been reached.
How is KYBELLA™ Administered?
Before we start treatment, we begin with an ascetic consultation. We can completely customize your outcome to what you want. Then we will begin to administer small injections of KYBELLA™ under the chin. Treatment times usually last less than half an hour. You will see results within 2-4 sessions. Some patients may require up to 6 sessions to achieve the profile they want.
What are the Results?
79% of KYBELLA™patients reported improved profile appearance. The patients also said they were happier with their face—more confident and less self-conscious.
