Botox® and Dysport® are wrinkle relaxers used to improve the look of patients. These injections cause muscles to go into a temporary state of paralysis. This prevent certain repeated movements of the face and neck. Injections of Botox® and Dysport® thereby can be used to soften and improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet  (laugh lines).

The procedure takes about 15 minutes and is associated with minimal to no recovery time. After the injection, most people can return to work or resume their daily activities immediately. Patients notice results after 3-5 days after the injection. The facial improvement usually lasts 3-6 months.

Dr. Tardieu offers a wide array of other facial rejuvenation services including dermal fillers, facial micro-needling, nano-fat injection, mini-facelift and face lifting. At Tardieu Skin Clinic, we also repair split earlobes, remove skin tags and moles from the face and neck, and we treat scars.

Through minimally invasive treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin, Dysport, Juvéderm®, Voluma, Radiesse, and Restylane, Dr. Abdollah Malek can rejuvenate and even re-contour the face to provide a natural and youthful appearance.

What is Botox?

Botox, a product developed by the pharmaceutical firm Allergan, contains a purified toxin that relaxes your facial muscles. When injected in small doses, Botox can safely and temporarily relax muscles by blocking the chemical signals that cause them to contract. By preventing these muscles from contracting and tightening, the skin will appear flatter, smoother and less wrinkled overall.
