Smooth away facial folds, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and relax overactive frown lines for a youthful, energetic demeanor that helps you look as young and vigorous as you feel!
Lines and wrinkles are caused by the repeated muscle contractions of everyday actions, like frowning and squinting. As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin, so the skin can no longer bounce back after each repeated movement. Each minute movement leaves behind an accumulation of folds or creases that, over time, leave you looking older than you’d like. Injectable Botox® or Dysport® treatments temporarily reduce muscle activity, resulting in a visible smoothing of your facial lines and wrinkles and even preventing the formation of new wrinkles!*
When planned and overseen by the highly-acclaimed, double Board certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Michael Godin in Los Angeles, California, injections of these powerful, highly-refined neuromodulators can improve the appearance of visible lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases. By utilizing precision techniques and working in harmony with your natural facial contours, we avoid “frozen” and unnaturally shiny results, to help you look—and feel—refreshed, rejuvenated, and naturally-radiant!
Is Botox® or Dysport® the right choice for you?
Botox® and Dysport® injections are a minimally-invasive way to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, as well as slow down future wrinkle formation. Good candidates for these injections usually have one or more of the following concerns:
- Crow’s feet (fine lines at the corners of the eyes)
- Eyebrow asymmetry
- Sagging or creasing of the forehead/brow area
- Drooping at the corners of the mouth
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Lip creases (upper and lower)
- Gummy smile
- Excessive cleft chin or “peach pit” chin
- Facial scarring
- Horizontal and vertical neck creases
- Wrinkling on the décolleté (chest)
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Botox® and Dysport® are FDA-approved and have a proven track record of safety and effectiveness. The treatment can be administered in a simple office visit that usually takes no more than 5 minutes. Most patients require no downtime and can return to their normal activities immediately, making it an ideal lunchtime rejuvenation treatment! Results usually last about 3-6 months and can be repeated for optimal results.
