What Are Neurotoxins?
By far the most popular injectable treatment, neurotoxins like Botox or Dysport work by blocking nerve impulses to your muscles, causing them to relax. Primarily used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles (e.g. on your forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet or laugh lines), Botox and Dysport can also treat conditions such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), chronic migraines, TMJ, or neck spasms (cervical dystonia).
Prior to your Botox or Dysport treatment, we will analyze your facial movements to determine where and how much to inject. This is important because everyone’s muscles pull differently. Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved and have virtually no side effects. You will notice the first effects within a few days of your treatment with the full results showing two weeks later.

Our Botox & Dysport Treatments in Scottsdale, AZ
Botox for Wrinkles
Since its introduction in 1989, Botox has become the most well-known cosmetic injectable. Backed by more than 16 years of research, Botox is highly effective in treating facial lines and wrinkles.
Botox & Dysport for Hyperhidrosis
Botox or Dysport can block the nerve signals responsible for excessive sweating, which stops your sweat glands from producing too much sweat. Most patients need multiple treatments, between four to six months apart.
Dysport for Wrinkles
Dysport is another type of wrinkle relaxer often said to have better distribution underneath the skin, making it a great choice for forehead and frown lines. Some patients report seeing faster results with Dysport (within 3 days). In addition, we have found that for some patients Dysport tends to last a little longer.
Botox & Dysport Lip Flip
The lip flip is a less expensive, short-term alternative to lip filler treatments, creating a subtle, natural-looking plump. A Botox or Dysport lip flip relaxes the upper part of your lip and gently flips it outward, creating the illusion of a more voluminous lip.
Botox / Dysport FAQs
What's the difference between Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport have similar effects. They both smooth wrinkles by relaxing your muscles. It appears that the biggest difference between the two is the way units are calculated.
Are there any side effects or risks?
Botox and Dysport injections are very safe when performed by an experienced injector. In fact, only 36 cases of adverse effects associated with cosmetic use were reported to the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) between 1989 and 2003.
Possible side effects include pain, swelling, and bruising of the injection site and in rare cases, drooping of the eyelid (ptosis), eye irritation or sensitivity to light.
