BOTOX® Bryn Mawr, PA | Dysport® and Xeomin®

Go from looking stressed to refreshed. Noticeably reduce wrinkles and shave years off your appearance. All with a quick 15-minute procedure. Treatments such as BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin are a safe, simple and non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are designed to produce natural-looking results and a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

How Do BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin Work?

BOTOX (Botulinum toxin-A), Dysport and Xeomin are FDA-approved muscle-relaxing agents. They block the release of chemicals that cause muscle contractions and weaken the muscles in treated areas. As a result, these neurotoxins ward off fine lines and wrinkles and the skin retains a smooth, softened appearance.

There are no comparative clinical studies to show the effectiveness of one product over another. Subtle differences have been seen, which include time of onset (how fast it sets up), duration and how soon you may notice results. When choosing between BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin, we consider your individual goals and healthcare history to determine the best anti-aging treatment for you. 

BOTOX, Dysport & Xeomin Treatment Areas

What to Expect at the BOTOX Treatment Session

BOTOX and BOTOX-like treatments are safe, effective and minimally invasive. Once we determine the optimal product for you, a topical anesthetic is offered to numb the area and make you feel more comfortable. A very fine needed is used to strategically inject BOTOX into the identified area, directly into your facial muscles. A treatment session typically lasts no more than 15 minutes, so they can be performed during your lunch hour or easily worked into a busy schedule. Discomfort is minimal, but topical anesthetics can be used to make our patients feel comfortable.

"Shanna did an amazing job for my first ever Botox experience! The space was clean, all staff were extremely nice, helpful, and took COVID precautions seriously. Shanna helped me figure out exactly what would give me the look I desired to get rid of my pesky forehead lines while still looking natural. Can't wait to come back!"

Recovery and Results from 
BOTOX Injections

After the procedure, there is little to no downtime. BOTOX injections are relatively safe when performed by an expert injector, but possible side effects include pain, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. Most people can return to normal activities immediately. You will be asked not to rub the area that was treated, and you should avoid exercise or strenuous activity for 24 hours. The softer, more youthful appearance usually lasts for 3-4 months. Staying out of the sun and a good skin care regimen helps lengthen the effects of BOTOX.

Can Fillers Be Added to the BOTOX, Dysport & Xeomin Treatment?

BOTOX, Dysport & Xeomin can be administered alone or in conjunction with a dermal filler injectable treatment for a more complete facial renewal and rejuvenation. Fillers such as Juvéderm can be added to areas of the face that start to develop deep wrinkles or hollows. Common areas include around the eyes to lessen dark circles and around the jawline and chin to give more balance to the face. Facelift procedures such as the Lumen Tight or Lumen Lift would be scheduled separately.
