BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®

Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic in South Florida

Long before you’re ready for facial cosmetic surgery, you may notice the more subtle signs of aging, especially on the forehead and around the eyes. Fortunately, these early signs of aging respond very well to BOTOX® Cosmetic or the new Dysport®. With little to no downtime, and a relatively small price tag, this popular treatment can provide relief from lines and wrinkles around the eyes, with results that last for months.

Is BOTOX Cosmetic or the New Dysport Right for Me?

Both BOTOX Cosmetic and the new Dysport are excellent choices for women and men who are dissatisfied with the appearance of crow’s feet, horizontal forehead furrows, or vertical frown lines between the eyes. Both BOTOX and Dysport can temporarily cause the small muscles of these areas to relax, allowing wrinkles and lines to be smoothed for a period of 3 to 6 months. Both BOTOX and Dysport are FDA approved, and the new Dysport has been used safely and successfully in Europe for over 15 years.

A common concern among those interested in Dysport or BOTOX at Cooper Plastic Surgery is that the treatment will make your face appear “frozen” or expressionless. This is not the case. BOTOX or Dysport is injected into only the muscles that cause the wrinkles, which should not affect other facial expressions. Celebrities, actors, and everyday people by the thousands use BOTOX or the new Dysport regularly, with results that are noticeable but not artificial looking, making it the most frequently performed procedure in plastic surgery offices around the country.

Your Procedure

Treatment with either Dysport or BOTOX takes only 15 to 30 minutes, and requires no preparation or down time on your part. The treatment area is cleansed, and you have the option of having a topical anesthetic applied. BOTOX or Dysport is injected through a very tiny needle, which causes very little discomfort, swelling, or redness. Most patients return to work or their usual activities immediately following their treatment.

Many of our patients combine Dysport or BOTOX Cosmetic treatment with other procedures, such as a brow lift or face lift in South Florida .

BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport Results

Results from BOTOX Cosmetic or the new Dysport appear gradually over the course of several days; approximately 5 to 7 days for BOTOX Cosmetic and 1 to 2 days for Dysport. This is the amount of time it takes for the protein to effectively relax the targeted muscles. Dysport has a more rapid onset and begins working sooner than BOTOX. The effects of BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport typically last about 3 to 6 months and for both options the results may last even longer for those who get treatments regularly.

Beginning BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport treatment early, before you have developed numerous, deep wrinkles, can also have a preventative effect. It can keep existing wrinkles from worsening, and may even limit the formation of new wrinkles in the treated area. Back to Top
