Botox® and Dysport®

Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines remain – even when your muscles aren’t contracting. With Botox® and Dysport®, you can get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself. Once the treated muscles are relaxed, the pull of the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin flattens, improving the appearance of the wrinkle.

Dr. Heinrich will discuss treatment goals and finalize a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs. He may examine your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create furrow between your brows can vary among individuals.

The treatment

No anesthesia is required. However, Dr. Heinrich may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. A few tiny injections of BOTOX® or Dysport® will be administered directly into the muscles that cause those moderate-to-severe frown lines in the forehead, between the eyes and in the “crows feet” area as needed. The entire treatment takes about 10 minutes. Botox® and Dysport® can also be administered into the armpits to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

After your treatment

No downtime is needed – you’re ready to get on with your day! You will receive specific aftercare instructions. Results last approximately 4 months, but vary from person to person.
