BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular non-surgical aesthetic enhancement treatment available, and also one of the most effective. This quick treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet for a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Lines and wrinkles often form in the face when the underlying muscles begin to contract. BOTOX® Cosmetic is composed of a purified protein that works to temporarily relax contracting muscles in the facial areas targeted for treatment, leading to a smoother aesthetic. Andrew Cohen, MD will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the target areas with an ultra-fine needle in a procedure that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Results typically last about three to six months, and can be maintained with follow-up treatments. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an effective way of temporarily erasing the signs of age, stress, and exhaustion from the face.
Dysport® is one of the newer injectables available, and it can serve as an excellent alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Also able to relax contracting muscles in the face, Dysport® can reduce wrinkles and fine lines for a smoother, more youthful aesthetic. Injected into the target areas with a fine needle, Dysport® treatments can typically be performed over your lunch hour and results are almost immediately apparent. There is usually no downtime associated with this procedure, and results often last between three to six months. Occasional touch-up treatments can make results of Dysport® last even longer.
