Botox & Dysport Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox® is a purified toxin that temporarily reduces muscle activity to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It’s the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Eugenia injects the prescription to sites on your face that would benefit from treatment. She also uses Botox to reduce the nerve activity that causes hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.
What is Dysport?
Dysport® is a prescription injection containing a purified version of the botulinum neurotoxin, the same compound used in Botox®. Dysport effectively decreases muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to develop on your face, leaving you looking refreshed and more youthful.
What areas are treated with Dysport?
Dysport is effective in several areas that commonly show signs of aging. These include:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet around your eyes
- Frown lines (the “11s”) between your eyebrows
Dysport only affects the treated areas and leaves other areas of your face unaffected, so you don’t look frozen or artificial.
How does Botox address the signs of aging?
Years of expressions – such as smiling, frowning, and squinting – can lead to lines and wrinkles due to the repeated muscular contractions. When injected into carefully selected sites, Botox reduces the muscle action in these areas so wrinkles become less obvious. Common sites for Botox include:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyebrows (the “11s”)
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
As an expert injector, Eugenia precisely places Botox so you achieve natural results and don’t look frozen or permanently surprised as a result of your treatment.
How long does Botox last?
The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox last 3-4 months, depending on the dosage, your body’s metabolism, and the areas injected. Eugenia can put you on a treatment schedule so you get repeat injections at the right time and maintain your look.
You’ll see a reduction in lines and wrinkles within a few days of the injections, with full results in 7-10 days.
How soon will I see results of Dysport?
Dysport offers a temporary reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. You’ll notice the effects within 2-3 days, with full effects appearing in about seven days.
Eugenia gives one injection into each of five points between and above the eyebrows to temporarily halt muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. You’ll also receive several injections around the sides of your eyes if you opt for crow’s feet treatment.
How long do the results of Dysport last?
Dysport’s effects are temporary. You’ll see a reduction in wrinkles for 3-4 months after treatment. The good news is that repeat treatments are possible. Eugenia can put you on a treatment schedule so you maintain a more youthful look for the long term.

How does Botox reduce excessive sweating?
Eugenia uses Botox to reduce excessive underarm sweating. Research shows you can expect an 82-87% decrease in sweating following treatment. You’ll notice the results about 2-4 days after the injections, and experience results for 4-12 months. Repeat treatments are available as needed.
Botox treatments for excessive sweating are shown to cause meaningful improvements in sweating symptoms and boost your quality of life and job productivity.
Is Dysport successful in treating wrinkles?
At least 69 countries approve the use of Dysport for wrinkle reduction. The product has 25 years of clinical experience to support its use, too. In surveys, 97% of people who use Dysport say they’d use it again to maintain their naturally more youthful look.
Do Botox injections hurt?
You will feel the prick of injections, but most people tolerate the procedure quite well. The needles are tiny and each procedure goes quickly. If you’re concerned about sensation, talk to Eugenia about using ice or a numbing cream prior to treatment.
Do Dysport injections hurt?
Eugenia does use a needle to administer Dysport, so you will feel a pinch. Most people find the treatment exceptionally tolerable, but if you’re concerned about discomfort, ask her about using ice or a topical numbing cream prior to the injections.
