As we age, repeated facial movements can cause wrinkles to become etched into our skin, particularly beside the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows (frown lines). By temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles with BOTOX® or Dysport®, you can achieve a smoother, more wrinkle-free complexion once again.

Best Candidates for BOTOX & Dysport
Candidates for BOTOX and Dysport should be in good overall health with realistic expectations for their results. Most people who get either product are interested in getting rid of horizontal lines beside the outer eyes or vertical lines between the brows, which may make them appear constantly tired or agitated. However, BOTOX and Dysport can also be used to treat horizontal forehead lines or, in some cases, to reduce prominent masseter muscles.
Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Harrington may recommend additional or alternate procedures. For instance, microneedling can help plump up and rejuvenate the skin, minimizing minor facial lines. A laser peel can also help treat minor wrinkles while refreshing skin tone.
What to Expect
Injectable products like BOTOX and Dysport can be quickly applied in what’s known as a “lunchtime rejuvenation treatment,” allowing you to walk in and walk out without cutting into your schedule too much. Before your injections, your aesthetic professional will carefully examine your skin and determine the specific areas to inject. The injections themselves will be quick and generally don’t require any anesthetic. Most appointments only take a total of around 20 minutes.
Recovery & Results
You may develop some minor temporary redness or bruising at the injection sites, but this should fade within the first week. You should protect your skin from the sun after treatments, but BOTOX and Dysport generally don’t require any downtime or special care.
Your results should develop over the following 3 to 7 days. Once your results set in, you should notice a smoother, more relaxed appearance, but you shouldn’t appear “frozen” or overly done. Your results will fade after about 3 to 4 months, so most people schedule touch-up treatments about 4 times per year.
