Non-surgical procedures

What is Botox?

Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are all similar Botulinum toxin type A medications.  They work by blocking nerve messages to muscles, so the muscles do not tighten at all, or so they tighten only weakly.  All of these medicines are injected into muscles of the face or neck.

When will I see results after getting Botox?

Patients typically see results 7-10 days after getting botox.

How long does Botox last?

Botox typically lasts 3-4 months.

Botox and Dysport Injections

For optimal results, it is best to have an expert plastic surgeon perform the treatments, because the location and amount of each injection should be unique to each patient. These medications reduce wrinkles caused by squinting, concentrating or frowning, and give a happier, more appealing look.
