Do you tired, angry or wrinkled? Want a quick fix? Then Botox Cosmetic or Dysport may be your answer. Dysport is the newest alternative to Botox Cosmetic and has many of the same benefits of Botox injections. Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are both highly purified medications that temporarily stops facial muscles from contracting, working to smooth our wrinkles and creases and giving the face a more youthful, refreshed aesthetic appearance. Injections of Botox Cosmetic or Dysport are performed with very fine needle inserted into the area of concern. Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are one of the most commonly performed treatments at our Newark, Hockessin and Wilmington offices.

Botox Cosmetic and Dysport Recovery
After having Botox or Dysport, you can expect to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some temporary bruising at the injection site may occur. After injection, you cannot press or massage the area or lay down for four hours to allow for absorption of the Botox Cosmetic.
Maureen Stephenson, who had just received a Botox treatment at our Newark Delaware office, states “I usually get my Botox from someone near Baltimore Maryland but started coming to Nouveau Medispa a year ago and my results are amazing! I can really see the difference and I love it.”
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport Results
Results of treatment can be seen in 2 – 14 days and typically last 3 – 5 months. The effects of Botox Cosmetic or Dysport can be maintained with subsequent treatments to continue to smooth wrinkles and enhance your appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic partially blocks the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. This causes the muscles that are related to expression to relax. After the solution takes effect, the overlying skin will be smooth and unwrinkled.
Q & A
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?
Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic, which has been used safely to treat a variety of conditions for more than ten years, is now FDA-approved as BOTOX® Cosmetic for the temporary treatment of frown lines in people aged 18 to 65.
What areas can be treated?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are primarily used in the upper third of the face. Forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes (”crow’s feet”) respond favorably to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Frown lines around the mouth, chin creases and neck bands may also be improved with a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection, but response here varies among individuals.
What is a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment like?
This is a simple and safe procedure. Dr uses a tiny needle to cause minimal sensation and discomfort. The small needle also allows for greater precision in delivery of BOTOX® Cosmetic to the specified facial area. Most patients remark that there is minimal pain, comparing the sensation to a bug bite. You can resume normal activities immediately. BOTOX® Cosmetic generally takes 3 – 7 days to take full effect.
How long does it last?
About 3- 4 months, after which the lines gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance if no further injections are given.
Will it radically change my appearance?
No. You should expect a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your frown lines. Overall, you’ll look more relaxed and refreshed but not like “you’ve had work done.”
Will it make me lose expression?
No. The only expression you will lose is the unintentional frown caused by the overactive muscles between your brows.
Are there any side effects?
Temporary bruising of the injection site is the most common side effect. In some cases, BOTOX® Cosmetic can migrate to the wrong muscle causing drooping of the eyelid or unevenness of the brows. With skilled technique and knowledge of the face and underlying muscles the chances of this are reduced to about 1%. Because the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are completely reversible, any side effects are temporary.
