Neurotoxin Injections: Highlights
• Neurotoxins are most commonly used in the upper third of the face, but it may be used sparingly around the mouth and on the neck.
• Treatments are individualized for each patient’s desired results.
• Neurotoxins are administered by several small injections with minimal discomfort.
• Effects may be seen within 5-7 days for Botox and 3-4 days for Dysport. Full effects are seen at two weeks after injections. Touch ups will be performed on an as-needed basis between week 2 and 3 after your initial treatment to ensure that you are pleased with your results.
