Why BOTOX or Dysport may be right for me

Over time permanent creases develop in the skin. Contractions of the facial muscles associated with expressions such as smiling, raising or furrowing the brow or squinting cause this creasing.

But you don't have to stop smiling or expressing yourself to diminish the lines and maintain a youthful appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic and Dysport work by relaxing the muscles in the treated area in order to reduce moderate to severe facial lines. BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport in Tucson, Arizona, by Dr. Rao may be right for you if:

  • You want to look younger
  • You desire to diminish wrinkles around the eyes and forehead
  • You are in good general health
  • You have a sensible expectation of your results

My procedure

Dr. Rao will create a personalized treatment plan to address your unique facial characteristics.

Your BOTOX or Dysport treatment will be administered by Dr. Rao himself. He will use his medical knowledge and expertise in facial aesthetics to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for you. The procedure requires about 10 to 20 minutes and involves a few tiny, strategically placed injections of BOTOX or Dysport into the facial muscles just beneath the skin.

If there is any discomfort, it is usually slight and temporary. The treatment does not require anesthetic, although a cold pack or anesthetic ointment may be used by Dr. Rao to numb the treatment site for added comfort.

My recovery process

Following your BOTOX or Dysport treatment, you can jump right back into your regular daily activities.

My results

After your treatment, you'll notice smoother skin with fewer lines in about 4 to 7 days. Results typically last 3 to 4 months and even longer for women and men who start their treatments earlier or schedule regular treatments.

If desired, Dr. Rao will work with you to create a treatment plan that involves repeat treatments every 3 to 4 months to maintain your smoother, younger-looking appearance.

Related enhancements

Consider completing your facial rejuvenation with a non-surgical, combination treatment known as a liquid facelift by combining your BOTOX or Dysport treatment with injectable fillers. Chemical peels or laser skin treatments can further enhance your rejuvenation.
