BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®

There is a simple reason BOTOX is the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment—it works. That is, it works when performed by experienced injectors who understand how to produce natural-looking results. BOTOX treatments with our skilled Oklahoma City injectors minimize fine lines and wrinkles to help you look more youthful without appearing “frozen.”

What Is BOTOX & Dysport?

BOTOX and Dysport belong to a category of cosmetic injectables called neuromodulators. These injectables contain a purified botulinum A protein, which relaxes the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. Even though it sounds a bit scary, BOTOX and Dysport have excellent safety profiles dating back two decades. The FDA approved BOTOX for cosmetic use in 2002, and Dysport’s approval came in 2009.

BOTOX & Dysport Treatment Areas

Many people think BOTOX and Dysport treatment areas are limited to forehead wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, such as crow’s feet and worry lines. They are excellent options for those concerns but can also address many other bothersome features, including:

  • “Lipstick” lines 
  • Vertical neck bands 
  • Chin dimples (“orange peel skin”) 
  • “Bunny” lines on the bridge of the nose 
  • Sagging eyebrows 

We can also use BOTOX to create a slimmer jawline and reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

What Happens During a BOTOX Treatment?

Your BOTOX or Dysport treatment usually takes only 15 to 30 minutes. The needle used for BOTOX is very fine, and the injections take mere seconds. You might feel a brief pinching sensation during the injections, but the discomfort doesn’t last. You may see some redness and swelling at the injection sites, but these symptoms should subside in a day or two.

How Much Does BOTOX Cost?

The cost of your BOTOX or Dysport treatment depends on the area being treated and your aesthetic goals. Before your treatment, we’ll discuss your concerns and provide a price quote based on our assessment of how many units are needed to accomplish your goals.

Is BOTOX or Dysport Better?

BOTOX and Dysport both effectively minimize wrinkles and lines, but each has unique benefits that may make one better for your needs. For instance, Dysport generally spreads more easily than BOTOX, which can make it better for larger areas, such as the forehead. Dysport results typically appear a few days sooner than with BOTOX, but BOTOX results last a bit longer—about 4 months. Even though Dysport’s cost per unit is less than BOTOX, it takes more units of Dysport to produce the same results as BOTOX.

What Is a BOTOX Lip Lift? 

Many people interested in making their lips appear fuller get lip filler injections. A BOTOX lip flip is an alternative to filler. Strategically injecting small amounts of BOTOX into the muscles just above the upper lip causes the lip to “flip” upward and expose more of the pinkish area. This creates the appearance of more volume in the upper lip.

What’s the Difference Between BOTOX and Fillers?

Both BOTOX and fillers are cosmetic injectables that minimize signs of aging and create attractive facial contours. BOTOX and Dysport accomplish this by relaxing muscles that cause expression lines, including worry lines (the “11s”) and crow’s feet. These “dynamic” wrinkles result from years of squinting, frowning, smiling, and changing expressions in other ways.

Fillers treat “static” wrinkles that develop as our skin produces less collagen and our faces lose volume. Fillers add volume to treat areas such as nasolabial folds and tear troughs under the eyes.
