Botox® & Dysport® in Louisville
Botox® is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. Botox® blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies also suggest that Botox® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Dysport® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport® is used by men and women who want to treat their moderate to severe frown lines without dramatically changing their look.
Both Botox® and Dysport® are minimally invasive treatments. A few tiny injections are made into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines. No anesthesia is required, although Dr. Digenis numbs the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately fifteen minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief. You may resume normal activity immediately. There is no recovery or downtime and you can expect to see results within days after your treatment. Results last up to four months, although individual results may vary.
