Used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily relaxing facial muscles (ie. Dysport/Botox).
Our consults include a 1:1 conversation. It is your chance to ask us questions and learn more about what we have to offer. It is difficult to provide a price estimate over the phone without physically assessing the areas for treatment. This is what we do in the consultation appointment.
We welcome you to book a consultation through our web site or direct message. Our consults are always free, informative, and the best part is there is time allotted for treatment if you do wish to do so.
Plain and simple, the difference lies in how the products work. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to restore volume, hydration, and firmness to the skin. It can be injected onto the bone or into the tissue. Whereas neuromodulators, like Dysport or Botox, smooth lines and wrinkles by “freezing” the muscle it is injected into.
What do Kleenex and Scotties have in common? They are both tissue paper brands. Similarly, you could use the same example with Dysport and Botox as they are both brand-name neuromodulators. Their action mechanism is the same; they both block signals from the nerve to the muscles to inhibit contraction. In our experience, Dysport has a quicker onset and has fewer side effects.

Neuromodulators block the nerve activity in the injected muscle. By blocking nerve activity, the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles become relaxed. You will still be able to display a variety of expressions. A consultation with our team will focus on getting you the look you desire!
No! Commonly known as “Brotox,” men may utilize neuromodulator injections for the same reasons as women to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
There is very little evidence available on the safety of Botox/Dysport while pregnant or breastfeeding. To err on the side of caution, we do not offer these treatments to pregnant or breastfeeding clients.
We often get asked if we can offer treatment for sleep wrinkles. The best way to minimize these are to sleep on your back. Now coming from two individuals who sleep on their side religiously, we highly recommend the enVy™ Pillow.
“Sleeping on a regular pillow (even if it has a silk pillowcase) causes tissue compression and shift which causes your skin to crease. These creases or lines are called “Sleep Wrinkles.”
The enVy™ Pillow allows for supportive side sleeping without tissue compression or tissue sagging due to gravity caused by cut-out pillow designs. Its patented shape subtly “off-loads” pressure, minimizes face-to-pillow contact and supports your neck and spine while back or side sleeping”.

No. Our clinic’s policy is that you have to be older than 18 years of age to recieve any neuromodulator or dermal filler treatments.
No. It is actually beneficial to start neuromodulator treatments BEFORE the lines are there. This is called preventative Botox/Dysport. Preventative Botox will also help train your muscles to not make certain expressions. It will take more time and product to soften the lines or wrinkles if you wait until after they are created.
There is nothing you can inject to reverse the effects of Botox or Dysport. However, because these products work on the muscles, you will find that it will wear off with time (approximately 3 months). With that being said, there are certain situations where additional Dysport/Botox injections create a countereffect. It is important to ask questions and discuss your goals with our team to ensure the treatment plan is specific for you!
A very small needle is used. Most clients tolerate the procedure extremely well and have described it like a mosquito bite. They have rated the pain anywhere from 0-2 out of 10.
This is the only area that can be done prior to the 3 month requirement. The muscle around the mouth is called the obituaries Orissa muscle. Botox or Dysport is injected into the top part of this muscle (just above the top lip). Because it is a muscle that we use continuously throughout the day, the medication is metabolized quicker and only lasts approximately 6-8 weeks.
