Crow’s feet, frown lines, and other facial wrinkles often make us appear much older than we actually are. Aging is inevitable, but there are non-surgical steps that you can take to turn back the clock on the aging process.* Instead of hiding your fine lines and wrinkles with makeup, turn to Botox or Dysport injections. While Botox is more of a household name than Dysport, the latter can achieve the same results.* If you would like to temporarily reduce your facial wrinkles, these neuromodulators are the perfect treatment.*

During your consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and create a treatment plan unique to you. If you are wondering whether Botox or Dysport is right for you, our San Francisco-based surgeon can help you make that choice. The two products are very similar, and for the most part, it comes down to preference. Both injectables are forms of botulinum toxin type A, which is extracted for safe use in humans to relax the muscles and decrease movement. Both products are considered a neuromodulator and the differences are slim. Dr. Judge will make a recommendation that is customized to your aesthetic goals.
During your treatment, we will first mark out the areas that will be treated with injections. A topical numbing agent may be used to help limit any discomfort. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of Botox or Dysport is precisely injected into several locations on the face. When injected in small amounts, Botox or Dysport works to soften those muscles that cause wrinkles. The actual treatment procedure is quick, taking only about 10 minutes.
After the treatment, it is important not to rub or massage the treated areas. This can cause the medicine to migrate to another area of your face. You may notice some immediate softening of your wrinkles, however the full effect and dramatic results are typically seen by 14 days.* A single injection can relax your facial muscles for as long as 3-5 months.* The treatment “quiets” wrinkles on your face, giving you a more youthful appearance.*
*Individual results may vary. Not a guarantee.
