X Information about our injecting services:
DYSPORT | Use to decrease fine lines and wrinkles.
Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally allowing you to freely show natural facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
How does it work?
Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the treated muscle, which temporarily reduces movement of certain upper facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Results can be seen as early as 24 hours to 2 weeks and last 3 to 4 months.
Book a Consultation:
Our Physician provides all initial consultations. If Dysport is an appropriate treatment for you a prescription is written. Consultation and treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes. If you would like to find out more book an appointment for an initial Dysport consultation.
Dysport might not be right for you if:
You have had surgical changes to your face
You have very weak muscles in the treatment area
Your face looks very different from side to side
The injection site is inflamed
You have droopy eyelids or sagging eyelid folds
You have deep facial scars
You have thick, oily skin
Your wrinkles can't be smoothed by spreading them apart

DERMAL FILLERS | Increase volume and definition of the lips, cheeks and under eyes.
Through the injection of cross-linked hyaluronic acid into the lips, you can treat volume loss, enhance the lip and correct disproportion. Injection into the cheeks and undereyes can correct volume loss from the decrease in fat pads related to the aging process. We aim to provide a natural result, with realistic movement and appearance.
Post Treatment expectations:
Plan for a 2 week touch up to ensure even results
The amount of bruising and swelling is different for each client. To decrease the severity or occurrence of bruising avoid alcohol, anti inflammatories and caffeine the few days before and the few days after, take arnica supplements (talk to your health food store), eat foods like kiwis and pineapple and ice the area following treatment
If an vascular event (blockage of vessel) or overfilling of the lips occurs hyaluronidase is onsite to reverse the filler
Massage and injection technique are used to decrease clumping of the filler but small lumps is common and will soften within the two weeks
