Enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.

Fine lines and wrinkles are early signs of aging that occur, leading to a tired, tense, older appearance. Due to the repetitive motion of certain facial and neck muscle groups, dynamic wrinkles can be addressed with neurotoxins, such as Dysport and BOTOX, which Dr. Moses offers. In the hands of an experienced injector, these products help men and women soften wrinkles and even prevent the development of permanent lines. Additionally, if placed correctly, the brows can be lifted to help open the eyes, giving a well-rested appearance to the face.

Your BOTOX or Dysport procedure

BOTOX and Dysport are simple, quick procedures that can be performed during your lunch break. You will be able to go home right after your treatment. Treatment lasts about 15 minutes, and no anesthetics are needed. 

How do BOTOX and Dysport work?

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive motion of certain muscle groups in the face, for instance:

  • Frowning
  • Smiling
  • Raising your eyebrows

BOTOX and Dysport are neurotoxins that smooth out dynamic wrinkles by causing the underlying muscles to relax.

When will I see the results?

You may start noticing results within 24 hours, but most patients see results after about three days that fully settle in over a two-week period.

BOTOX or Dysport? What’s right for you?

BOTOX and Dysport are both derived from botulinum toxin and work in very similar ways. Dysport is particularly effective in treating glabellar lines, the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows.

BOTOX treatment areas include the forehead (to smooth horizontal lines), the glabella or frown lines between the eyebrows, and the crow's feet around the eyes, etc. 

Dr. Moses will recommend the best treatment for your individual needs.
