Botox Cosmetic is a clinically proven neuromodulator that is a popular treatment used for smoothing pesky lines and wrinkles on the face, without the intervention of surgical procedures. Botox is made with the botulinum toxin product A, which is a naturally occurring protein that causes muscle paralysis.
Botox Cosmetic is administered through injection directly into the wrinkle forming muscles. This creates temporary paralysis of target facial muscles, and they can no longer fold the skin to create lines and wrinkles. After your muscles are relaxed from the Botox treatment, a younger-looking you will be revealed, and you'll see noticeable improvements in facial lines. Botox is also a great preventative measure and can keep your skin free of fine lines and wrinkles for longer.
Botox can also be combined with other skin care treatments like Dermal Fillers for further improvement towards your aesthetic goals and facial rejuvenation.
Absolutely! Cosmetic injections have been approved by the FDA and are widely used. Botox is such a popular cosmetic treatment due to its convenience and anti-aging effects. It is quick and painless, making it an ideal option for those who are looking to maintain their youthful appearance without the need for extensive invasive procedures or downtime.
Botox is one of the most effective treatments available in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and can also be used to lift the brows or slim the jawline. After just one treatment, you may see a noticeable improvement towards a more radiant complexion.

Dysport treatments are injectables made of a form of botulinum toxin product A and work similarly to Botox Cosmetic. The primary difference between the two treatments is the dilution of the neurotoxin. Dysport is a cosmetic procedure that is especially effective at treating larger areas such as in the forehead because of its ability to spread further. It is injected directly into wrinkle causing facial muscles that are responsible for crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, for a smooth skin appearance. Dysport is an FDA-approved treatment that effectively reduces the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevents future facial lines from appearing.
Similarly, to Botox, Dysport relaxes muscle contractions that create wrinkle forming folds in the skin. Dysport is administered as a clear liquid solution and injected directly into the wrinkle areas. Because the targeted muscles are temporarily paralyzed, the skin no longer folds, and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out. The minimized muscle activity is also a great preventative treatment that increase the longevity of your skin.
After a single treatment of Dysport, improvements in lines caused by facial muscles can be seen, with wrinkles looking smoothed out. This cosmetic treatment requires no downtime, so it is perfect for those who want a quick anti-aging solution, but do not have the time for long periods of recovery.
