Botox® (Botulinum Toxin), Dysport and Xeomin, are all facial injectables used in non surgical cosmetic treatments to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the face by weakening the muscles it is injected into.

They can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, and brow lines. Botox® can also be used to treat excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, by injecting into the sweat glands of the armpits, feet or hands.

When to consider having this procedure?

The desire for a more youthful appearance often leads patients to inquire about facial rejuvenation with the use of facial fillers or Botox®. These patients are generally aged 25 – 70+ years, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:


desire to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face


reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes


diminish frown lines, forehead creases and brow lines


self conscious due to excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis

What is the recovery time?

There is very little downtime with Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®. Other than a little redness for a few hours, on occasion a small bruise may be noticeable. These treatments do not work immediately but you will start to see it take effect in 3-5 days. It reaches its maximum effect around 2 weeks and will last several months.

During your private consultation, these non-surgical procedures will be discussed, as well as potential risks or complications, expected benefit and the recovery time specific to the procedure you had done.
