Botox® & Dysport®

Botox® and Dysport® are nonsurgical treatments that are FDA approved to temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. They can also be used to treat wrinkles at other sites such as the forehead and around the eyes. These “dynamic” or “expression” lines are formed in the skin with repeated movement of the underlying muscles.

Botox® and Dysport® are purified proteins produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected into a muscle, they reduce that muscle’s ability to contract. This decrease in activity (i.e. decrease in frowning, brow furrowing, squinting, etc) improves the lines and wrinkles around the muscle.

In our practice, all cosmetic procedures including Botox® and Dysport® injections are performed by physicians.
