BOTOX & Dysport

BOTOX™ and Dysport™ are “relaxing agents” produced from sterile derivatives of Botulinum Toxin. Although distinct products, they work in the same way to improve or prevent facial lines wrinkles that are caused by over active or tense facial muscles. They have been used extensively at Mount Sinai and throughout the world for many years in the treatment of facial aging with unparalleled safety and patient satisfaction. In addition to treating facial aging, BOTOX™ and Dysport™ are also used in the treatment of facial nerve paralysis and by our voice and speech experts at Mount Sinai’s Eugen Grabsheid MD Voice Center link to http://www.mountsinai.org/patient-care/service-areas/ent/areas-of-care/voice-and-swallowing-disorders.

BOTOX™ and Dysport™ treatments can typically be given during a routine office visit (or even on your lunch break). The treatment involves a series of small injections with minimal patient discomfort. The tiny injections usually result in little to no bruising. The effects are not instantaneous, but typically become apparent within 2-14 days later. BOTOX™ and Dysport™ usually last between 3-6 months at which point muscle activity returns to normal. As an elective treatment, they can be given whenever the effects wear off or over longer periods of time when it is convenient for the patient.

Cost is always concern, as insurance does not generally cover surgery or treatment that is done purely for cosmetic reasons. We provide patients with expected costs prior to any intervention.
