Tired of frown lines or crows feet? With noticeable results and no downtime, there are many reasons why men and women are choosing Botox or Dysport to be a part of their anti-aging regimen.

How do Botox and Dysport work?

Botox and Dysport in ElginEither Botox or Dysport is injected into a targeted facial expression muscle, blocking impulses from the nerve to the muscle, thereby relaxing the muscle so it does not contract. This causes the overlying skin to become smooth, with fewer lines and wrinkles, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression and feeling to be unaffected.

How long does this procedure take?

Following the consultation, the actual procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime, you can do it on your lunch hour and no one would know you had it done!

How quickly will I see results?

Both Botox and Dysport start relaxing the treated area within a few days with full results in about a week.

How long will this treatment last?

The effects last from 3-5 months on average, but everyone is different. Typically patients who get this treatment regularly notice that over time they can go longer in between treatments.
