BOTOX ® Dysport ®

BOTOX ® Dysport ®

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® Dysport® injections are safe, simple and effective methods for fading wrinkles. They are both prescription medicines approved by the FDA. The treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.

BOTOX® Dysport® treatments will not change your physical appearance other than to relax your muscles and smoothen wrinkles in those areas. You will retain enough range of motion in your facial muscles to display various emotions.

Quick, safe and effective, these treatments reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles for up to three to six months. It takes less than thirty minutes to administer an injection and you can resume your normal activities immediately following your treatment with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® Dysport™ gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth, and lines on the neck.

BOTOX® Dysport™ is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician such as Dr. Allaei. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. In this way, BOTOX® smoothes the lines in the skin that make you look tired or angry.

Dr. Allaei takes the time to talk with each candidate before beginning the injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how best to correct the problem area(s) so patients can be happy again with their smoother, younger-looking faces.

“These treatments are more than just about wrinkles. This is a point that a lot of patients seem to miss. It is also about facial symmetry. For example, there are depressors that move the eyebrows down and there are muscles that lift the eyebrows up. Facial muscles are always at a tug of war with each other and this is important for the health professional to understand to give the client the look they are trying to achieve.” – Dr. Allaei.

The 3 most common treatment areas for BOTOX® and Dysport™ are:
Glabella (vertical frown Lines between the eyebrows)
Crow’s Feet (lines around the eyes)
Forehead (horizontal lines across the forehead)
