BOTOX AND DYSPORT
These agents work by relaxing the muscles and the skin around the eyes, mouth and forehead for a smoother facial appearance. Long-term studies have shown these agents to be extremely safe and highly effective. Due to the excellent results, injecting BOTOX® or Dysport to treat facial wrinkles is one of the most popular office-based procedures performed to date.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow's feet in adults. BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow's feet, temporarily reducing the muscle activity so you'll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
〈 Common Areas to Treat
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow's feet
- Forehead wrinkles
〈 Your Treatment
For moderate to severe crow's feet, Dr. Price will inject BOTOX® into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes. For moderate to severe frown lines, BOTOX® is injected into 2 muscles - the corrugator and procerus muscles. Treatment typically takes 3-5 days to take effect and lasts for approximately 3 to 5 months.
The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® feels like a pinch. Our team will use ice to numb the treatment area.
Side effects include but are not limited to: discomfort or pain at the injection site; headache; and allergic reactions. Mild bruising is possible, however avoiding ibuprofen-type products, aspirin and other blood-thinning products can minimize this risk. Our team is happy to answer any other questions you may have.
