BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport

BOTOX®/Dysport BY SHAHIN FAZILAT, MD FOR SMOOTHER, YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN

Overview

BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. Dr. Fazilat injects BOTOX®/Dysport under your skin and into the muscle in areas surrounding your eyes, forehead, and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines.

BOTOX®/Dysport is made from a purified protein and injections block nerve impulses, pwhich both weaken muscles and relax wrinkles to give your face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX®/Dysport may also be useful for excessive sweating and can be injected into hands, feet and underarms.

About The Procedure

BOTOX®/Dysport injections are very commonly performed in Dr. Fazilat’s practice. Botox/Dysport is done in Dr. Fazilat’s office using ice packs to numb the area or an optional numbing cream; treatment time is typically 1/2 hour and results last 3 to 4 months.

Some of Dr. Fazilat’s patients also combine their BOTOX®/Dysport injections with other cosmetic or plastic surgery procedures, such as other injectable dermal fillers (Juvederm®, Radiesse™, Latiesse™, Restylane® / Restylane Lyft® and Fat Injection), chemical peels, laser hair removal, sclerotherapy and laser vein treatment, and skin care. NOTE: If patients are having a face lift / neck lift, brow lift / forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose job cosmetic procedure in the Operating Room, they can choose to add a BOTOX®/Dysport injection.

Recovery

After BOTOX®/Dysport injections, patients can resume normal daily activities. Dr. Fazilat recommends that you avoid strenuous activities the evening after the injection(s), but you will have no additional restrictions after that. Bruising is rare, but occasionally a slight redness may occur where the injections were placed. This redness will dissipate by the next morning.

Dr. Fazilat will schedule a follow-up 2 weeks after your first injections to evaluate the proper dose and placement of BOTOX®/Dysport.
