Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatments can temporarily eliminate facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes and the nose. Treatments can also elevate and shape the eyebrows and the corners of the mouth as well as slim the lower face.
Treatments are performed in the office with minimal discomfort. The effects take three to five days to appear and last about three to four months depending upon the amount of Botox injected and the patient’s muscle strength. Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatments are often combined with dermal filler treatments or Sculptra to combine wrinkle treatment with the line filling and volumizing effect of fillers.
When the benefits begin to wear off, you will notice a return of muscle activity in the treated areas. There are no serious, permanent side effects associated with the use of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin at dosages that we employ. Occasionally, a small bruise can result from the injection but this can be camouflaged immediately with makeup. Temporary side effects can occur if Botox, Dysport or Xeomin migrates from the injection site. For this reason, we ask that you do not rub or massage the area for twelve hours after the injection.
