BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic


Perhaps for some, those furrows and lines on the face are a welcome symbol of experience and wisdom. But for most, they're just wrinkles and signs of aging. Dr. Josh Olson of Advanced Plastic Surgery Institute uses Dysport and BOTOX Cosmetic in Gilbert to help women and men from Chandler, Mesa, and Tempe, AZ, and surrounding areas maintain the look of youth. You'll still have the experience and wisdom — just without the wrinkles.

Allow board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Olson to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Request a consultation with Dr. Olson or call (480) 466-7355 to schedule an appointment.

Your Skin, Renewed

The repeated muscle movements of the face produce lines and deep wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows. You can smooth away those lines with non-surgical BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport. These treatments can offer the following advantages:

  • Smooth out vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduce or eliminate crow's feet around the outer corners of the eyes
  • Achieve long-term wrinkle reduction with multiple treatments
  • Prolong the results of a brow lift or eyelid surgery
  • Restore youthfulness and boost confidence

In many cases, these treatments can effectively delay or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures, or they can serve as a complement to a procedure such as a facelift.

"... I felt comfortable after meeting Dr. Olson and was so appreciative to hear that he errs on the conservative side and can always add more botox if I needed it. He was very precise and I would recommend him to any of my friends!"

What is a neuromodulator?

BOTOX and Dysport are in a class of products called neuromodulators. They do not treat wrinkles by filling them in from within the skin like dermal fillers. Rather, neuromodulators temporarily disrupt contractions of facial muscles so that the overlying skin is no longer squeezed into lines and wrinkles. When the muscle contractions stop, the skin is able to gradually smooth out.

Because neuromodulators and dermal fillers are used to treat different kinds of wrinkles, they can be used together to provide a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation (see illustration).

Which should I choose?

Although similar, BOTOX and Dysport may produce slightly different results for each individual. Dr. Olson will evaluate your aesthetic needs and history to determine how to best use each product to your benefit.

"Been to this office 4 times after disappointment with another office. Not a single complaint! It's spotless, professional & everyone is super friendly! Dr. Olson takes time to explain all facets of the procedure & answers all my questions. He's patient & has a great eye! I've had fillers & botox...
He's a true artist... I look better & feel better."

What are BOTOX treatments like?

BOTOX treatments are performed in Dr. Olson's office during a short procedure. Icepacks or a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area to reduce pain. Ice may also diminish post-treatment bruising.

Dr. Olson inserts a very thin needle into specific areas and injects precise amounts of the product. The active ingredients temporarily paralyze the muscles responsible for the wrinkles.

When will I see results?

Experiences vary after treatment. After a few days, you will likely begin to notice improvement. Dysport may take effect a day or so earlier than BOTOX. Full results are usually attained after 2 weeks. Dr. Olson may recommend you return for a follow-up assessment and touch-up treatments to ensure you achieve the best possible results.

Should I be worried about looking frozen?

When BOTOX and Dysport are administered by a well-trained, experienced professional, you can expect to look refreshed and relaxed, not frozen. While the muscles responsible for your wrinkles will be relaxed, the rest of your facial muscles will remain functional and be able to naturally convey your personality and emotions.

How long do results last?

Improvements from BOTOX and Dysport treatments last about 3 to 4 months, although patient experiences vary. Those who have had multiple treatments sometimes enjoy longer results because treated muscles become weaker and smaller (atrophy) in the same way other muscles do when they are not used. To retain your improvements, we recommend returning for touch-up treatments at the first sign of your wrinkles returning.
