Neurotoxin is a fancy word describing a medication that temporarily causes the injected muscles to relax. Most people know of this neurotoxin as Botox or Dysport. These medications are well researched. In fact, they have been used for 20+ years!
Botox and Dysport are FDA approved wrinkle relaxers for ages 21 and above. There are a variety of areas that we treat on the face with priority to the upper portion of the face. Oftentimes people are looking to soften their 11’s or get rid of their angry face. Another common complaint Botox addresses are smile lines, and forehead lines. Whatever your concern may be, Botox and Dysport injections are a simple and easy solution to soften wrinkles that bother you.
When to start? I always say there is never a wrong time to start a neurotoxin. Some people will receive Botox for prevention, and others choose to seek treatment when they notice lines at rest. Whatever your concern may be, we can create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns! Just remember, no Botox or Dysport if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Now let’s talk about the elephant in the room… the cost! The cost of an aesthetic procedure can scare people away. However, receiving Botox and Dysport does not have to break the bank. In fact, we always tailor a treatment plan that fits your desires and needs.
Botox and Dysport are actually quite simple and can be administered in a matter of minutes. Since we want to be your partners in your aesthetic journey, educating you and tailoring a treatment plan takes much longer than actually receiving your “tox.” It is possible to receive Botox or Dysport on your lunch break, while running errands, or at the end of your work day. Botox and Dysport do not work immediately. It takes about two weeks to see the final results and it lasts for about three months. Therefore, maintenance usually looks like three to four visits a year.
