Home » Non-Surgical » Botox & Dysport

Introducing Botox and Dysport, popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments offered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Karan Mehta in Manhattan. Designed to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles like forehead lines and crow’s feet, these neurotoxin injectables help you achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Correct Dynamic Wrinkles
With Neuromodulators

Botox and Dysport are two widely recognized and effective neuromodulators that address dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. These non-surgical treatments temporarily relax the underlying muscles responsible for creating these wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance. Administered through ultrafine injections, Botox and Dysport offer patients a convenient way to combat the signs of aging and restore facial vitality.

Botox & Dysport Correct:

  • Dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Lip lines and wrinkles
  • Chin dimpling
  • Neck bands

How Do Botox & Dysport Work?

Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA) are neurotoxins derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. They work by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. When injected into specific facial muscles, Botox and Dysport inhibit the communication between nerves and muscles, temporarily relaxing the targeted muscles. This relaxation prevents excessive muscle contractions that lead to dynamic wrinkles, allowing the skin to appear smoother and more youthful. The effects typically last for several months before a repeat treatment is needed.

Differences Between Botox & Dysport


  • Has a smaller molecular size
  • Takes effect within 3-7 days after injection
  • Often preferred for treating smaller, precise areas like crow’s feet or forehead lines
  • Preferred by some patients due to its longer history and established reputation


  • Has a larger molecular size
  • Takes effect within 2-5 days after injection
  • Often favored for larger treatment areas, such as forehead lines or frown lines
  • May spread more easily, potentially requiring fewer injection points

Candidates for Botox & Dysport:

  • Individuals with dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions
  • Adults seeking a non-surgical solution for wrinkle reduction
  • Those looking to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles
  • Individuals in good overall health without contraindications for neurotoxin injections
  • Patients with realistic expectations about the results of the treatment
  • Those willing to undergo maintenance treatments as the effects are temporary

Botox & Dysport: Onset & Longevity of Results

Typically, patients begin to see the effects of these neurotoxins within a few days, with the full results becoming evident after about one to two weeks. The longevity of the results varies but generally lasts around three to four months. To maintain the desired outcome, regular touch-up treatments are recommended. Dr. Mehta will provide guidance on the optimal timing for follow-up appointments to help you enjoy sustained rejuvenation.

Botox & Dysport Treatment Details

During your consultation, Dr. Mehta will carefully evaluate your specific concerns and desired outcomes. This personalized assessment allows Dr. Mehta to determine the right neurotoxin for your needs. Whether it’s Botox or Dysport, he will consider factors such as the targeted areas, muscle strength, and desired longevity of results to make an informed decision.

Dr. Mehta will cleanse the treatment area and may apply a topical anesthetic or ice to enhance your comfort. Using a fine needle, he will administer precise injections into the targeted muscles responsible for the dynamic wrinkles. The injections deliver small amounts of the neurotoxin, temporarily relaxing the muscles and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

The Recovery Process

It is normal to experience mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection sites. These effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours to a few days. To minimize discomfort, apply a cold compress or ice pack to the treated areas. Avoid rubbing or massaging the injected areas for the first 24 hours to prevent the spread of the neurotoxin to unintended muscles.

It’s important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Mehta. These may include avoiding strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, or saunas for a brief period after the procedure. However, you can resume your daily activities and work immediately — there’s no downtime. Additionally, it’s crucial to attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns.
