Botox and Dysport with Dr. Sailon

Botox is a non-surgical treatment that enhances youthfulness by softening or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily relaxing muscles and treatment is quick, easy, and effective. Botox not only softens those lines but, importantly, also prevents them from getting deeper and more obvious with time.

What other non-surgical techniques exist?

Botox and modulators are just one tool among many non-surgical techniques. Botox is often used in combination with fillers to add volume where needed. Resurfacing via medical grade skin care, lasers, or chemical peels complements Botox and improves the texture and tone of the skin. In addition, resurfacing can improve age-related skin changes such as sunspots.

What alternatives are there to Botox?
What is Dysport or Xeomin?

The term Botox is often used to describe an entire group of modulators (just like people say Coke when asking for soda) that function to relax muscles and minimize lines. The leading brands of modulators in the US are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. All are derived from botulinum and function similarly although there are subtle differences. Dr. Sailon will review which is appropriate for you during your consultation.

Is Botox treatment painful?

Dr. Sailon goes to great lengths to provide the most comfortable experience possible. He uses the smallest needle (32 gauge) and provides adjuncts such as cooling, vibration, and topical numbing creams to make sure you have minimal discomfort.

Where is Botox used?

Botox is most commonly used effectively in the following locations and situations:

Forehead lines – the transverse forehead lines formed when lifting your eyebrows

Glabellar lines (“11 lines”) – the vertical lines between your eyebrows most noticeable when frowning. Botox treatment cannot only smooth out the lines but also leave you with a gentler expression.

Crow’s feet – fine wrinkles around the corners of your eyes most obvious when squinting or with a broad smile.

Flat or low eyebrows (“chemical brow lift”) – in certain patients, the injection can be used to subtly lift the tail of the eyebrows and restore a beautiful brow arch.

Chin dimpling – a cobblestone or dimpled appearance to the chin can be softened and made smooth with Botox.

Gummy smile – in select people, Botox can be used to reduce a gummy smile while keeping a natural smile.

Lip lines – small, vertical lines that form the mouth. These often benefit from a combination treatment of Botox, filler and resurfacing.

Bunny lines – fine wrinkles along the sidewall of your nose

Neck platysmal bands – vertically-oriented cords in the neck that are too prominent.

Drooping corner of the mouth – Botox can be strategically placed to elevate the corner of the mouth resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Is it true that Botox works for excess sweating (hyperhidrosis)?

YES! Modulators such as Botox work very well to stop
excessive sweating and have been used in the armpits, hands,
and groin area.

Who performs the injections in the practice?

Dr. Sailon performs all injections of Botox or fillers personally.
He believes an understanding of facial anatomy combined with harmony and balance is necessary to provide you with the desired results.

After serious consideration, and in line with the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we will be limiting our practice until April 7th. This may need to be extended further depending on how the situation evolves. Your health and well-being are our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:
All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 7th.

The office will be partially staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.

We are instituting Virtual Consultations for our large inquiry base.

Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.

No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
    We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • As we are a medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities.
