Dr Freeman uses Dysport as well as Botox® as a simple physician administered treatment which involves the injection of purified protein into specific areas to temporarily smooth lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movements. Botox is the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world today with over 5 million procedures done last year alone. This is the only treatment of its kind that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Our Medical director, Board Certified Dr. Phil Freeman evaluates patterns of facial muscle movement and looks for moderate to severe facial lines caused by the action of these muscles. The location, size and action of the muscles that create these “dynamic lines” vary among different individuals. Dr. Freeman will mark these locations and administer several tiny injections of Botox or Dysport directly into the muscles causing these dynamic lines. The objective is to create a youthful and more relaxed appearance and NOT a “frozen” or “expressionless” or “deer in headlights“ look!
Each area requires a different number of units of Botox or Dysport as determined by Dr. Freeman at your consultation.
,p>Note that in experienced hands, Botox and Dysport can be used for more than treating lines and wrinkles. With injections into specific areas of the face, Dr. Freeman is able to reshape the brows and alter their position as well as slightly round and open the eyes giving you a non-surgical brow lift effect.
Areas that can be treated include but not limited to:
- Glabella/frown lines (area between the brows)
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Bunny lines (wrinkles on top of your nose)
- Crow’s feet
- Peri-oral lines (around the mouth)
- Neck bands
- Brow lift (Botox can be injected above the outer area of the brow to create a lifting effect)
We can also treat you for sweat reduction for armpits and hands at our medical spa in Houston!
All of these procedures are usually comfortable and requires no anesthesia, although some patients choose to numb the area with a cold pack prior to injecting. Downtime is not expected after the procedure and bruising is uncommon. You will notice a marked improvement in days and the results should last 3 to 6 months.
