Botox, Dysport & Xeomin
BOTOX® is THE household word for treating facial wrinkles. This safe and effective procedure delivers such amazing results that a quick office visit for a treatment can now replace the need for cosmetic surgery.
Both BOTOX® and its main competitor, Dysport®, are equally successful in softening or eliminating facial lines and wrinkles for adults of any age. They are most commonly used for frown lines, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), laugh lines, and forehead lines. Dr. Enzer also has years of experience using BOTOX® and Dysport® to treat fine upper lip lines, chin creases, unsightly neck bands, and even the outer corners of the mouth to turn a frown into a smile.
Dr. Enzer is a leading authority in treating facial wrinkles with BOTOX® and Dysport®, and has over 20 years of experience in their medical and cosmetic uses. Dr. Enzer has also lectured extensively on the cosmetic uses of these medications, and has taught hundreds of physicians his techniques on performing the procedure.
The most recent addition to the United States market is Xeomin® in 2010. The benefit of Xeomin® is that there is less risk of developing a tolerance to the product because it has fewer proteins built up around the molecule. Although not as commonly used as BOTOX® or Dysport®, we offer this product as an option for our patients as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure only takes about 10 to 15 minutes and is performed in our office by Dr. Enzer and/or the nurse practitioner.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime for the procedure and no restrictions on your activity. Side effects are uncommon, the most frequent being a bruise especially in the outer corner of the eyes (crow’s feet). About 15% of patients can develop a headache after these treatments. There is always a concern for over-treatment, especially in the forehead area, which results in heavy brows and upper lids.
When will I see my results, and how long will they last?
You can expect to see your results from BOTOX® within 7 to 10 days, and the duration of the product’s effect usually lasts between 3 to 4 months. With Dysport®, your results are usually apparent within 3 to 4 days and will last the same amount of time – between 3 to 4 months.
