Botox® and Dysport®

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary)
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic/ Dysport® is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows
  • The procedure itself takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes
  • Chipola MedSpa offers quality services at affordable prices
  • Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Krishna for evaluation and to ask any specific questions about treatment
