How Do Dysport® and BOTOX® Work?
Over the course of time, repeated muscle contractions and facial movements can cause the formation of wrinkles and fine lines between the eyebrows. This can cause individuals to look constantly tired or worn out, and can even make you look older than you really are.
Dysport® and Botox® are non-surgical treatments that will soften and smooth moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead as well as crows feet around the eyes. We can also tighten the loose and crepey skin on the eyelids, cheeks and neck utilizing our innovative Instatox™ method and can create an amazing jawline with our Skin Boutique favorite – the Nefertiti Neck Lift. Downturned or gummy smiles, bunny lines, brow lifts, pebbly chins, vertical lip lines and bruxism /teeth grinding can also be addressed with Dysport® and BOTOX®. We also utilize these treatments in other areas of the body, such as underarms and palms of hands can also be treated to reduce sweating.
What is the Nefertiti Neck Lift?
With age, as the skin begins to lose its natural suppleness and plumpness, the muscles under the jaw tend to pull down the cheeks, leading to loss of jawline definition and flattened cheeks. As the same muscles that cause wrinkles also lead to loss of a defined jawline, anti-wrinkle treatments such as Dysport® and BOTOX® can be used to lift the neck and bring back the definition.
Just as Queen Nefertiti reigned over one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Nefertiti Lift is one of the medical wonders of modern times. True to its namesake, Skin Boutique’s Nefertiti Lift defines jawlines fit for a queen.
What is InstaTox™?
InstaTox™ is an innovative use for muscle relaxers such as Dysport®, that accelerates the effects producing an instant tightening and lifting result.
When injecting Dysport® using this technique, the muscles respond immediately with a skin retraction which is similar to a ‘shrink wrap’ effect. The skin will subsequently appear to be tighter and more compressed which allows fine lines to dissipate.
Ideal Treatments for InstaTox™ are:
- Eyelid Lifting
- Under Eye Crepiness
- Cheek Crepiness
- Facial Tightening
- Facial Flushing
- Facial Sweating
- Jaw Contouring
- Neck Tightening
- Décolletage Tightening

Pre & Post Care:
Before Dysport / Botox Injection
- Ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising and/or swelling.
