Botox Cosmetics & Dysport
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators that help restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance by treating wrinkles & fine lines. These neuromodulators are injected with a tiny needle underneath the skin into muscles to temporarily improve fine lines and wrinkles. Common treatment areas are, the Glabella (between the eyes), Forehead, and Crow’s Feet (lines around outer eyes). The result will be smoothing of overlying skin that can last on average 3-4 months. These neuromodulators are safe, effective, and proven as a method of treating fine lines and wrinkles over the last two decades. Furthermore, they are also effective in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating – a common issue for many in the underarm, hands, and feet areas.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX COSMETIC OR DYSPORT?
If you want to smooth and minimize wrinkles:
- On the forehead

- Around the eyes
- If you want to treat and reduce excessive sweating in the underarms, hands, and feet areas
Our expert providers at Brown Plastic Surgery will determine your needs through an initial consultation where they will customize a plan based on your desires. Once completed, they will recommend a treatment plan that will aim to accomplish your goals. The treatment is done in office, requires only a few minutes, and it has little to no discomfort. It may take at least 14 full days for you to see the maximum effects. Since we are all different we each require different doses. Some patients metabolize the protein very fast, and some metabolize it very slow. The goal is that we develop a long lasting relationship so we know exactly what the customized dosing per area is for you to achieve maximum results.
HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL TREATMENT TAKE?
The injection process generally takes about 15 to 30 minutes. The treatment time may vary depending on the number of units you are receiving.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?*
You can generally expect to see results in 5-7 days, although it may take as long as two weeks. Most people can expect to enjoy the benefits for 3-4 months.
As with any injection procedure, minimal bruising may occur, and you should be off of blood thinning medication for 7-10 days prior. You should NEVER STOP blood thinning medication unless directed by the doctor who manages it for you primarily.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
The treatment requires minimal downtime and you can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment. You should not massage the injection areas, conduct strenuous activity that day, or lay flat for 4 hours after your injections.
