Botox & Fillers
At Boulevard Dermatology, we offer an assortment of injection treatments for wrinkles. One of the most popular treatments is Botox and equivalent products, such as Dysport. Use of Botox and similar products is a safe and reliable methods of providing noticeable results with virtually no downtime. Basic Botox treatment works by hiding facial wrinkles created by repeated movement. Advanced use allows us to shape facial features.
Like Botox, Dysport is a neuromodulator that is FDA approved for wrinkle reduction on the upper face. Dysport differs from Botox because it has a slightly smaller molecule size that allows it to spread across a wider area of your skin. With just 1 injection into each of the 5 points between and over the eyebrows, Dysport blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, which reduces muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows. results may last up to 4 months.

Botox and Dysport both target areas where wrinkles are created by dynamic facial movement (such as between your eyebrows). Although they can both reverse wrinkles that have already form, they both work best to prevent wrinkles from forming. Once wrinkles are visible at rest it takes time for skin to return to its original, youthful shape. Deep lines may need help from a filler if they have not resolved after several treatments. Fillers are used to treat areas where aging has caused a loss of volume of the skin. Restylane Silk is one filler that we use for treating lips and lines around the mouth.
