BOTOX & DYSPORT are prescription drugs that, when injected, temporarily relax muscles. BOTOX & DYSPORT injections treat moderate-to-severe facial lines and wrinkles that are formed by continual muscle contraction. Treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic is the most popular physician-performed nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States.

What does BOTOX & DYSPORT do?

BOTOX & DYSPORT are FDA-approved prescription products that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate-to-severe frown lines on the forehead, between the brows, and moderate-to-severe crow’s feet.


How does BOTOX & DYSPORT work?

Properly placed injections stop nerve impulses from being sent to the muscles, softening the muscle contraction all together.

Dynamic wrinkles occur when muscles of facial expression contract. Relaxing the muscles in the face softens these lines dramatically. This also slows down formation of wrinkles that occur at rest, aka “static” wrinkles.

Who is qualified to give BOTOX & DYSPORT injections?

The manufacturer recommends that injections only be given by a qualified health care professional who has experience with injectables, and has a “medical practice that focuses on facial aesthetics and offers other facial aesthetic treatments.” Injections in our office in Ogden UT are performed by licensed medical professionals who are thoroughly trained on injection safety and technique.

When will I see results? How long do the results last?

Results from injections are apparent within 1 to 2 weeks after receiving the injections. Results often last between 3 and 4 months.


Does BOTOX have medical applications?

Yes; it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.


What are the possible side effects?
