As we age, the natural elasticity of our skin diminishes, and the result is unwanted wrinkles and frown lines. This loss of elasticity is mostly due to the weakening of collagen, but other factors, including stress, sun exposure, and smoking can also contribute to the development of wrinkles. BOTOX and Dysport are proven nonsurgical treatments for minimizing facial wrinkles and providing a smoother, more youthful appearance. Injectable fillers are a common way to rejuvenate a youthful look, and the benefits are often seen immediately! Cosmetic treatments in our practice are safe, comfortable, and sanitary.
During your initial consultation with our skillful team, we will discuss your preferences, work closely with you to customize a treatment plan to revitalize your facial appearance, and take digital photographs of your face to document your improvement. Just like we do for our oral surgery patients, our team is dedicated to creating the optimal cosmetic treatment plan for you to meet your health and wellness goals.
BOTOX is a substance produced from a naturally occurring bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is a neurotoxin that is injected into the skin to relax the facial muscles and provide a smoother complexion over common problem areas such as crow’s feet, the forehead, and between the eyebrows. The procedure is minimally invasive and takes just minutes to complete. Patients see the results within a few days, there is no downtime whatsoever, and the results can last up to 3 or 4 months.
BOTOX is a very popular treatment at our practice for the following reasons:
BOTOX is one of the most popular methods of facial rejuvenation. It is FDA-approved, safe, requires no downtime, and carries very few risks other than some very minor bruising at or around the injection site(s). You can learn more on the official BOTOX website.
Dysport has been used in other parts of the world for decades with safe and proven results but has only recently become popular in North America. Dysport, similar to BOTOX, is used to reverse the signs of aging by effectively relaxing wrinkles around the eyes and forehead for a softer, more youthful appearance. However, Dysport’s special formula can address a wider area of the face with fewer injections compared to BOTOX. Although Dysport uses the same active ingredient as BOTOX, Dysport has a smaller active molecule in its formula, allowing it to distribute over the treated facial areas more efficiently. The choice of which treatment to choose is a subjective one, as lengths of effectiveness vary from person to person with both Dysport and BOTOX.
Dysport carries all the benefits of BOTOX as a minimally invasive, nonsurgical option for facial rejuvenation. There is no downtime and virtually no negative side effects. You can learn more on the official Dysport website.
One of our greatest joys is to help our patients feel self-confident. At our Teaneck, NJ, practice, BOTOX, Dysport, and facial fillers are performed in a safe, comfortable, and sanitary setting by highly experienced and compassionate professionals.
