Get smoother features and a younger-looking appearance with a non-invasive treatment for moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections such as Dysport® and BOTOX® offer temporary, proven, and effective results with no downtime.
Often, signs of aging begin in specific areas of the face, such as the frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, or forehead furrows. At early stages, these lines and wrinkles may be responsive to a variety of treatments, including botulinum toxin injections.
As an experienced plastic surgeon and aesthetic injector, Dr. Susan Kaweski guides patients in exploring these options, makes recommendations based on their needs, and provides them with personalized care and treatment. Learn more about her approach.
How Dysport and BOTOX Work
Muscle contractions often form lines in the forehead and around the brow and eyes. If you can reduce the contractions, you can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections block signals to specific nerves that trigger these contractions, reducing signs of aging.
Plastic surgeons have used these injections for years, and since their introduction, pharmaceutical companies have created new variations to offer doctors and patients more options. As an example, Dr. Kaweski recommends Dysport rather than BOTOX for San Diego patients, though both products work in a similar fashion. She has found that Dysport is less painful on injection and lasts longer than other products.
San Diego patients interested in BOTOX and Dysport should visit Dr. Kaweski for an initial consultation.
During your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with Dr. Kaweski about the changes you’d like to make and ask questions about how Dysport compares to BOTOX. She will also conduct an examination of the areas you would like to treat.
Patients choose and recommend Aesthetic Arts Institute because we offer professional care that prioritizes their time, comfort, and safety. Those seeking BOTOX or Dysport in particular benefit from Dr. Kaweski’s experience. She is recognized in craniofacial procedures as well as aesthetic services, and she will leverage this knowledge to prepare a treatment plan suited to your needs.
What You Can Expect in Our Care
San Diego patients receive Dysport at Aesthetic Arts Institute. During the treatment, Dr. Kaweski makes injections into the areas you would like to improve. Most patients tell us that the process is very tolerable.
Treatment takes about 10-20 minutes depending on the size and number of areas. There is no downtime; after your visit, you can return to normal daily activities, though you should avoid rubbing the site for 24 hours so that the Dysport stays in the target area.
You can expect to see improvement within 5 – 7 days. Treatments such as BOTOX and Dysport can reduce lines and wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance for up to 4 months. You can return to Dr. Kaweski as necessary for a reapplication to maintain your results.
