Botox ® / Dysport ® and Facial Fillers
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
How does Botox® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets the repeated muscle contractions from making certain facial expressions 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 forehead lines, crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
What should I expect?
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes and feels like a pinch. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
You will look like yourself with less noticeable forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet. 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. Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

What is Dysport®?
Move toward a natural look.
Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions. Because Dysport delivers the natural-looking results people want, 97% of users say they’d do it again. Additionally, Dysport is approved in 57 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide.
How does Dysport work?
One injection. Five points. Loads of confidence.
Dysport treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, which means they can even develop in younger adults. One injection into each of 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines, leaving the rest of your face to move naturally. In other words, no frozen look, just natural-looking results. You can control your look instead of your look controlling you.
How long does Dysport last?
Forget frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months.
You’ve got better things to do than think about what your frown lines look like. In just one 10- to 20-minute treatment, Dysport may help improve the look of your frown lines between the eyebrows for up to 4 months. The majority of patients see improvement in just 2–3 days after treatment. Results of repeat treatments may be comparable to your first use. Another plus? There is minimal downtime after your treatment, which means you can get back to your day faster.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Additionally, Restylane is FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and is uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
Where can Restylane be used?
- Smile Lines – Treat the area that extends from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
- Marionette Lines – Treat the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
- Lips: Restylane can enhance both the upper and lower lips in patients over 21 years.
- Corners of the Mouth – Treat the area next to the crease of the lips.
How long do Restylane Treatments last?
With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane, up to 12 months in the cheeks and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, with Restylane Lyft.
How long does it take Restylane treatments to work?
Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane treatment appointments last less than an hour and begin to work almost immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylaneproducts act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally). Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose.
What is Restylane Lyft?
Over time, the natural fat that surrounds the cheeks begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles and a reduction of volume. Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane-L®, is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. Through nonsurgical injections, Restylane Lyft is specifically designed to add fullness to the cheeks and midface area, which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds).
