BOTOX/ DYSPORT

Facial wrinkles commonly form when we make simple expressions, such as squinting or smiling. When injected, Botox softens these wrinkles and fine lines by inhibiting the contractions of certain facial muscles. After the injections, wrinkles in the treatment area will diminish and the skin will appear smoother. Botox also helps to prevent further wrinkles and lines from developing.



How Can Botox/Dysport Be Used?


  • Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines and bunny lines

  • Diminish neck bands

  • Improve the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin

  • Lift the corners of the mouth

  • Soften a square jawline

  • Correct a gummy smile

  • Decrease excessive sweating on face, underarms, hands, or feet
