Botox / Dysport

Did you look in the mirror this morning and notice fine lines or wrinkles that weren’t there yesterday? Do you think you look older than you are or older than you want to?

Chelsea Skin & Laser creates customized Botox and Dysport treatments just for you. Carefully placed, these products can prevent, soften and reduce the appearance of fine lines on the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, minimize neck bands or smoker’s lines. If your brows have gotten heavy or flat we can create a bit of a lift to brighten your eyes.

With a delicate touch and precision, a few tiny injections are placed based on the plan developed for you. No anesthesia is needed but for sensitive patients, a cool pack may be used to gently numb the area for your comfort. The procedure takes no more than 15 minutes per area. Relaxation is gradual, usually starts 24-48 hours after treatment and progresses to full correction in about two weeks. Botox and Dysport last 3-6 months in most patients.

Dr. Eidelman and Dr. Ginsberg are experts trained and experienced in tailoring Botox and Dysport to your treatment goals. Chelsea Skin & Laser assures artistic, natural results that compliment a youthful, healthy appearance.

Dr. Eidelman is a master trainer for the companies that make these products. He is considered one of the top injectors in the country. 

What are Botox and Dysport?

They are prescription medicines that act as wrinkle relaxers. When injected into muscles they can temporarily improve, smooth or relax the look of moderate to severe wrinkling of frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, neck bands, and upper lip wrinkles in adults. Each contains a purified protein that relaxes the small muscles that cause excessive contraction.

How do we charge? 

Everyone has different musculature and the treatment is tailored to your needs. We charge by area. We caution patients when comparing pricing by units. The product is reconstituted and not every office follows manufacturers guidelines. Experience, integrity and skill level are so much more important than the convenience of a walk-in storefront. 

What to do after treatment:

Remain vertical for approximately 2 hours after treatment. Avoid laying down or inverting. Avoid sun exposure for 3 days. Make up may be used to cover any area of redness after the treatment. Light exercise is permitted. 

When should I schedule my next Botox or Dysport treatment?

It’s normal for the treatment to start softening after about 2-3 months. Schedule your appointments 3-4 months apart.

Who should avoid treatment?

If you are pregnant or nursing, have a neuromuscular disease, or you are taking the following medications: streptomycin, neomycin, gentamicin, or tobramycin. If you have a cow’s milk allergy it is not recommended to use Dysport. Or if you have a know allergy to albumin, it is not recommended to use these products.

What are the side effects?

Side effects most commonly reported include mild puffiness or bruising at injection site, headache (13%), temporary eyelid droop (3%).

Bruising risks can be minimized by avoiding aspirin, Advil, Aleve, Motrin, ibuprofen, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, concentrated garlic and alcohol for one week prior to treatment.
