Botox is the #1 cosmetic treatment in the world, and for a good reason. Botox cosmetic injections offer instant anti-aging effects. When administered by a skilled professional, treatment results are natural-looking and long-lasting. Botox is FDA-approved as safe and effective and is one of the most studied treatments.
The active ingredient in Botox is Botulinum A. This protein is injected into the underlying muscles of the skin so that they will relax. As a result, the overlying skin softens and becomes smooth. Botox is used to treat frown lines, crow's feet, and areas around the eyes and forehead. Botox is an ideal alternative to a facelift or brow lift.

Dysport is commonly referred to as Botox's European counterpart. Dysport was FDA-cleared in the U.S in 2009. Since then, it has been widely used in the industry to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Similar to Botox, Dysport's active ingredient is Botulinum A. However, the dilution of Dysport is higher than Botox, which makes Dysport ideal for larger target areas. In addition, this cosmetic injection spreads faster and is injected deeper than Botox. Results also last longer than most Botox treatments.
• Quick and convenient treatments
• Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
• Results last for 3 – 4 months
• FDA-cleared as safe and effective
• Little to no downtime required
