Botox

Botox and Dysport are two non-surgical treatments aimed to correct the fine lines and wrinkling which can contribute to an aged appearance.  These are often noticed around the eyes (“crows feet”) and mouth, or in the forehead or neck.  Both are injectable medications which temporarily paralyze the treated muscles causing them to relax, relieving the wrinkles.  Sometimes best results area achieved when Botox or Dysport is used in conjunction will a filler described below.  The skin is numbed prior to injection to decrease discomfort.  Most patients return immediately to their usual activities after the procedure and experience minimal bruising.  Results can be seen within days and last 3-12 months depending on the area treated.  In addition to rejuvenating the face, Dr. Tepper has expertise using Botox and Dysport for treatment of migraine headaches and excessive sweating.
