BOTOX® & Dysport® in Denver

BOTOX® / Dysport®

BOTOX® and Dysport® are purified neurotoxins that temporarily reduce or eliminate wrinkles on the face. Neurotoxins work by preventing facial muscles from contracting in problematic areas. Their goal is to diminish fine lines by smoothing and reducing them and preventing their occurrence as we age.

BOTOX® and Dysport® both temporarily inhibit certain nerve cells that signal muscle contractions. The result is smoother and younger-looking skin since it weakens the facial movements that cause fine lines and wrinkles.


BOTOX® is an injectable prescription medicine that temporarily improves forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults by temporarily decreasing the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkles in the face.



By injecting Dysport® into five different points above and between your eyebrows, you can temporarily stop the muscle contractions that cause frown lines, so the rest of your face can move normally.
