Botox and Dysport have become the most commonly performed non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Botox & Dysport work by relaxing and reducing the activity of muscles, hence improving the appearance of wrinkles. They are also used for a variety of other conditions such as bell's palsy, hyperhidrosis, migraine headaches, and masseter hypertrophy.


How does Botox or Dysport Cosmetic work?

Botox or Dysport Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your doctor will inject these muscles with Botox or Dysport to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.

Patients suffering from these disorders have had very satisfactory results with injecting Botox. In a retrospective clinical study, the outcome was evaluated by clinical examination and chemical parameters. The results showed that clear blocking of secretion in the treated glands was demonstrated. Possible side effects of the treatment were not observed.



The use of Botox to treat wrinkles led to the accidental discovery of its beneficial effect on headaches. Today, scientific studies and our experience confirm the fact that Botox injections can indeed relieve migraine, tension and even daily headaches.

Dysport is a wrinkle relaxer that is very similar to Botox Cosmetic. The desired effects are the same, but there is a small difference in the dosing units so often Dysport can be a less expensive procedure. Most patients cannot tell a difference between the two, however some patients report that Dysport may be faster-acting (ie kick in faster), the diffusion/spread may be better and thus more widely effective for forehead wrinkles, and some even believe Dysport will last longer.


How is BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport administered?

To temporarily improve moderate to severe crow’s feet, Dr Yaghi will inject BotoxCosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi.


For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.



BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery—it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.  Although, Botox and Dysport are excellent products as stand-alone procedures, there are times that injectable fillers such  as Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm, and Sculptra may need to be utilized to maximize outcome.
