Dysport® / Botox®
As we age the texture, elasticity and integrity of the skin changes. During this process the features of our face can change which may produce an angry or puzzled appearance, especially in the brow area. A neuromodulator (Dysport®/Botox®) can be injected into the muscles between the eyebrows (glabella) to help alleviate the vertical lines between the brow that lead to this appearance. Relaxing these muscles can lead to a mild elevation of the brow and a softer more rejuvenated appearance. To rejuvenate other areas of the face, neuromodulators can be used in the forehead, crows feet (wrinkles in the temple area), lips (smoker lines), chin dimples, jowls (to help elevate the corner of the lips), and neck (to alleviate neck bands). At Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face, we have extensive knowledge of the anatomy of the face, including the eyelid and orbital area, which can lead to safer injections and improved outcomes. Neuromodulators begin to work 3 days after injection with a maximal effect in 10 to 14 days. The effects can lasts for approximately 3 to 4 months depending on the amount injected and the muscle mass of the area injected. All injections at Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face are performed only by the MDs. There is minimal to no pain with our injection technique. Please call 202-991-9000 for a consultation.
