Botulinum Toxin, or BOTOX®, is an injectable treatment that can ease facial lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. This cosmetic solution is derived from the organism known as “botulinum” and, once purified, can be used to treat a variety of facial conditions. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes underlying facial muscles around the brows, forehead, or eyes. Dr. Selem can also utilize BOTOX® to treat a wide range of ocular conditions, including blepharospasm or drooping eye lids. BOTOX® treatment is completely non-invasive and is usually completed within 15-20 minutes. During your procedure, Dr. Selem will carefully insert BOTOX® into the desired areas of the face to temporarily paralyze underlying muscles that contribute to facial wrinkles and fine lines. Patients experience no downtime after undergoing BOTOX® treatment and can expect to see immediate improvements lasting 2-4 months, on average.

Dysport® is a cosmetic injectable for wrinkles that works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkling, much like BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dysport® is FDA-approved for cosmetic use. Many patients feel that Dysport® may begin to work sooner than BOTOX® Cosmetic, but Dr. Selem can help recommend which injectable is right for you, based on your procedure goals. Dr. Selem has been offering Dysport® injections since the treatment was approved by the FDA. Dysport® can diminish facial wrinkles and lines by easing muscles that contribute to these conditions. Dr. Selem uses Dysport® to target the areas around the forehead, brows, and eyes to achieve youthful, natural-looking results that can last 2-4 months, on average.
