What concerns can Botox/Dysport correct?

Botox/Dysport performed by an expert plastic surgery team like Pellegrino Plastic Surgery will address:
  • Dynamic Wrinkles: Botox and Dysport effectively address dynamic wrinkles, which result from facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.
  • Fine Lines: These neuromodulators are particularly effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, especially around the eyes (crow's feet) and on the forehead.
  • Preventive Aging: Botox and Dysport can be used preventively to slow down the formation of wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions that contribute to the aging process.
  • Brow Lift: When strategically injected, Botox and Dysport can provide a non-surgical brow lift, creating a more lifted and refreshed appearance in the upper face.

Can Botox/Dysport be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Botox/Dysport recovery is typically a swift process, with any temporary side effects resolving within a short period. During this time, individuals may experience minimal redness, swelling, or discomfort at the injection sites.
